    hey claudia, where are you downloading these .crx files from ? if after downloading you simply have a .crx file do the following:
    1. open google chrome
    2. drag the .crx file to your url bar
    3. click to accept in bottom left
    4. wait

    if however you have a .zip, extract the .crx somewhere and then follow steps above .
    you can also go to the official google chrome extensions site, find a theme you like and simply click on install . (you will need to search for a theme using a tag ie. ''eagles, nfl, philadelphia, football, dallas sucks...'')
    https://chrome.google.com/extensions
    For the record: Hello Kitty and Naruto Themes are the suck .

    Not on my Chrome (version 15.0.874.121 m) it doesn't, it just goes to save the identical file back out again!Also, when I use '+ ADD TO CHROME' on the Web Store, and click on 'Install', all that happens is that it opens a 'Save As' dialogue box.. hence the useless .CRX files.

    Great, stupid site has stripped out my line breaks, and I get a malicious URL warning whenever this page loads!
