How To Install The Spockholm Mafia Toolbar From The Chrome Web Store

Share:

As Chrome updates to the latest version, many players are finding that extensions, apps and user scripts need to be added from the Chrome Web Store. Brandon posted a workaround for those that aren’t available in the Chrome Web Store here.

The easiest solution for developers is to offer their extensions, apps and user scripts to the Chrome Web Store and that’s exactly what Team Spockholm has done with the Spockholm Mafia Toolbar. Go here for more information.

If you already have the Spockholm Mafia Toolbar installed, there is no need to do anything at this time. If you lose the toolbar from your extension list and need to reinstall it, want to install it for the first time or add it to another computer in Chrome, follow the steps below. If you want to remove the your current version and add the toolbar, follow the steps below.

1. Go to you Extensions Page in Chrome. To do this, click on the wrench icon in the upper right corner of your screen, select “Tools” and then “Extensions”.

2. Click on the trash can icon to remove or uncheck the “Enabled” box to disable.

If your version of Chrome doesn’t prompt you to add extensions from the Chrome Store than the same link you’ve always used to install the toolbar will work. For more information on installing the Spockholm Mafia Toolbar, go to this Spockholm Mafia Forum Thread.

    How to install the Spockholm Toolbar in Chrome version 21+
    1. Download the extension file from the website and save it to your computer (right click, save file as),http://cdn.spocklet.com/spockholm_toolbar_lite.user.js
    2. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
    3. Select Tools > Extensions.
    4. Locate the extension file on your computer and drag the file onto the Extensions page.
    Note that the filename needs to be intact. If you have previously downloaded the file, Chrome adding (1) to the name will break things.
    A guide with pictures: detailed instructions.
    Tampermonkey
    Using Tampermonkey will work too, but is not necessary.
    Why so complicated?
    Chrome updated their security policies, you can read more herehttp://support.google.com/chrome_webstore/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2664769&p=crx_warning
    Basically, greasemonkey scripts are no longer 1-click install. Script files needs to be loaded from a https source if you are using that protocol.
    Overriding the https source can be done via the command line flag:
    --allow-running-insecure-content

    Common problems
    Q: When dragging to extensions tab all I see is a page of code.
    A: Double check the downloaded filename, it should be "spockholm_toolbar_lite.user.js". No (1) at end or other characters.
    Q: Chrome keeps telling me I need to visit web store to install extensions.
    A: Right click, save file as. Do not left click file.
