My extension is disabled

In Yandex.Browser, extensions can only be installed from Chrome Web Store or Opera Add-ons. The browser disables all other extensions. If an extension that you develop is disabled:

  • For debugging, use the beta version of Yandex.Browser (extensions are not checked).
  • If your extension is available in the Opera or Chrome catalogs, specify the correct link for updating it in the update_url field in the manifest.json file. The table shows the link for updating extensions for each catalog:
    Catalog nameLink for updating extensions
    Yandex catalog
    Chrome catalog
    Opera catalog
  • If your extension is not in any catalog, enable it each time when you launch the browser (in the dialogue window or browser settings).
