chrome (Archived) Web clipper file downloaded was not a crx file?

4 posts in this topic

I have the same problem. I have been able to download the chrome web clipper on my macbook air and macbook pro but not here on my imac.

Can anyone help with this?

I tried a suggestion from a july 2012 message to drag downloaded file (which I couldn't save as suggested) to the manage extensions page and got an error message

"package is invalid: 'CRX_MAGIC_NUMBER_INVALID'.

Other users that have seen this behavior have been logged into the Chrome Webstore with a different Google account than the rest of the open tabs. This is a Google Chrome issue.

Let me know if that helps.

good suggestion. I quit, then restarted chrome, signed in and then it worked.
