    I can't find anybody else having these issues. I installed the Chrome beta a while back, and it's been updating itself since, but I need to finally get extensions working - I need my Adblock (Digg is completely unbearable without it). I read about the method to enable it weeks ago, just install the dev version - agree to the EULA and download. I did that, and overwrote the existing copy of Chrome. I didn't remove any other files. I still can't install extensions using the bookmarklet - it enables the install button, but I receive 'Extensions are not enabled' immediately after the download tries to start.

    The other thing is, the dev version is supposed to include the bookmark manager. That's also nowhere to be seen.

    Chrome says I'm running version and that it's up to date. Any ideas? Do I have to completely remove Chrome before installing the dev version (i.e. everything I've built up in my Chrome profile to this point in Application Support)?

    Any input is appreciated!

    Have you hit the Google support groups with your issues? It seems like any Chrome problems would be better answered there.

    Excellent, that particular download did the trick - there must be something up with the default developer channel page, it was linking to the version I mentioned.

    I can confirm that: he's not crazy. The second link works, and the normal, google-provided link doesn't.
