    I'm actually surprised you posted so quickly! I mainly posted because if you do a google search on the error produced you get NOTHING (seemingly) relevant to the problem. So for people like me who went 'Oh Noes!' they might stumble upon the solution. I can batch like a mad-man but I'm still trying to figure out how these extensions work so I feel lame it took me a week to find the problem :/

    Did anyone check the DblClickDial extension I posted?
    It hides the new tab history and allows you to toggle it on or off with a double click,

    Refer to your original thread for a response. I do not want to derail this plugin's topic.

    I used to have NoSpeedDial from adsweep installed. Removed that one (I think) and tried to setup your script.

    Get the following error message when I start up chrome:

    Errors
    Could not load extension from 'C:\myextension'. Invalid value for 'content_scripts[0].matches[0]'.

    And now I cant get NoSpeedDial to work either :P Any suggestions?

    ok, forgot to end the target line in chrome.exe with a ".

    When that was added I get a different error message:

    Could not load extension from 'C:\myextension"'. Manifest is missing or invalid.

    What version of chrome are you using? Which extension are you trying to make work, NoSpeedDial or CustomNewTab? If it's NoSpeedDial I would create a new thread asking for help so it gets more attention and maybe I can help you there.

    v 2.0.180.0

    I hope to get CustomNewTab to work. It seems to do what NoSpeedDial does +++.

    First, make sure you follow Kyrax's instructions for installation here: Customize your "new tab" extension
    After getting the files in their proper places, open the manifest.json file in notepad and replace
    Code:
    ["chrome-ui://newtab/*"],
    with
    Code:
    ["chrome://newtab/*"],
    Save the changes, and when checking to see if the extension is loaded use the new extension url chrome://extensions
