Can't install shell extensions from the website

Hey everyone,
I can’t install shell extensions from despite having installed both the firefox integration and gnome-browser-connector from AUR.
Extensions installed through pacman or AUR do work fine.
I have both the default extensions app and the extension manager one.
Any ideas why?

Just a thought: do you sandbox Firefox with something like firejail?

Also, won’t installing the extensions with extension-manger work?

No sandboxing, and my extensions are displayed in the local extensions part of the site.
No the app doesn’t load the search part either.

Are you sure, you’re talking about the same app? There are gnome-extensions and gnome extension-manager

Yes, it keeps loading and never finishes.

I’m afraid I don’t know what the issue is.
Hopefully you will get assistance from other forum members to troubleshoot and find a solution to this problem.

In the meantime, if you feel that you need an extension like “right now” you could try installing it manually:

It’s a bit tedious but it should work.

What does a vegan Arch user mention first…? :stuck_out_tongue: :grin:


I think you just broke my systemd…


Maybe this will help.
To install extensions, I needed to install them through AUR like so (you do not need to finish the package name when searching with yay)

yay dash-to-doc
4 aur/gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock-animator-git r24.d511de8-1 (+0 0.00) 
    Animate the icons of dash to dock
3 aur/gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock-vinceliuice-git 54.r562.f3445ac-1 (+1 0.00) 
    Moves the dash out of the overview transforming it in a dock (vinceliuice fork)
2 aur/gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock-git 70.r0.g8dbf454-1 (+82 0.05) 
    move the dash out of the overview transforming it in a dock
1 aur/gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock 1:75-1 (+111 2.73) (Installed)
    Move the dash out of the overview transforming it in a dock
==> Packages to install (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3 or ^4)

Select the extension I wanted, sometimes I needed to reboot before going into Gnome-extension-manager. Then the extensions popped up there automatically for me to turn them on/off and go into settings.

As I mentioned in the post body, AUR and pacman installs do work. The porblem is just installing from the site.

Ah, then I misunderstood the problem. Sorry about that.

Do you use flatpak Firefox? It won’t work with Flatpak Firefox.

Otherwise did you try Extension Manager from Flathub? Its become the way many Gnome users get extensions vs the website
