  • Works great, because I followed instructions.
  • The backend requirements (copr dnf repo and ineptly named chrome-gnome-shell) could be made more clear on extensions.gnome.org. Works fine once you waste 20 minutes trying to figure out all of the manual dependencies. Grumble grumble.
    You may not waste your time, but go ahead [1] and improve opensource [2] website.

  • This is a great addon for users on the GNOME Desktop Environment. It integrates seamlessly into the GNOME desktop, providing installation, upgradation and uninstallation of GNOME Shell Extensions

    Tested on Debian GNU/Linux
  • not sure how to reply, but that link you sent is for google chrome, not for firefox :(
    Hello.

    You do not have native connector installed.
    Please read documentation [1]

    Edit:
    This link for ALL supported browsers - Firefox, Chrome, Vivaldi and Opera
  • As said by mostly everybody, this addon requires a backend service, it does not work out of the box by just adding it to Firefox, and this is by design, so, for everyone which did not it yet, repeat with me:

    Read the addon instructions!

    Tested on Fedora 25 and works great.
  • Error: Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port
    Solution: Read the addon's description.

    > You MUST install native connector for this extension to work

    The package is called 'chrome-gnome-shell' but is needed for Firefox too. It seems to be a dependency for the addon to communicate with the gnome-shell.
  • Thanks, works fine.
  • unfortunately extension isn't working suddenly. Getting error: "Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port"

    OS Fedora 25 / Firefox 25

    Hello.

    You need to install distro package called "chrome-gnome-shell".

    Read addon description for instructions.

    Hello,

    Did you installed native connector? Look to documentation [1] for more info.
    If it will not work for you, then create new issue here [2] or here [3].

  • Unfortunately not working on both of my Ubuntu machines (both running Firefox 52 and Ubuntu 16.10).

    Error message:

    "Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port"

    I have chrome-gnome-shell installed as per the instructions.
    Follow this instructions [1] and post output.
    Preferably post output at [2].

    Hi, Edgar.
    Did you installed native host messaging connector? You need to manually install manifest file. Take a look here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754316
