Updating the Browser Extension

Updating the extension from the Chrome Web Store

Chrome automatically checks the Chrome Web Store for updates to the PixieBrix extension each day. However, in some cases you may want to get the update before Chrome has pushed it to your account.

Option 1. Restart Chrome

When you restart Chrome, it will apply any available updates to the installed extensions

Option 2. Apply Detected Update

  • Open the PixieBrix browser extension. From https://app.pixiebrix.com click β€œOpen Browser Extension"

  • If Chrome has already detected that there is an update available, a golden banner will be displayed. Click the "Update Extension" button

  • Refresh any tabs where you were using PixieBrix

Option 3. Manually Check for updates

  • Open the PixieBrix browser extension. From https://app.pixiebrix.com click β€œOpen Browser Extension"

  • Refresh any tabs where you were using PixieBrix
