I’ve been promoting a product called Spybar, it is an amazing extension for your browser (chrome or firefox) that I use every day. Yesterday my browser crashed (yay google) and upon restart I was told that they had disabled all extensions that were not in the chrome store. I could not even enable it because of this.
I contacted the developer and there is a workaround for the time being. Remove the extension from your browser (but keep this page open), go to the Spybar website and download the extension again. Once its downloaded, drag the file onto the extensions page on your browser to install it. If its like mine it will still say “not from chrome web store”, however it should be enabled.
Rob has told me he is working on a more permanent fix, and once I find out about it I will update this blog post. I’m just as pissed off about this as anyone else. I really hate firefox, but I use Spybar many many times each day. It is such a time saver that if it came down to it I would dump chrome to keep it.
Just a side note to everyone, if I promote a product it is because I believe in it and use it, and I will offer as much support or help as I can if I promote it. If you ever have any issues with anything I’m promoting I want to know so I can help get it resolved, or stop promoting it if the problem is big enough.
