Hi,

Does anyone have problems with chrome extension development. I’m following the guideline to the bones with no luck(using downloaded default project). I get Authorization page could not be loaded. Double checked the callback url and allowed origin

Which guideline are you following?

I was referring to the quickstart guide offered by auth0 for chrome extensions. Anyways, after retrying one more time, I found the problem. The quickstart guide has a typo here
https://<YOUR_EXTENSION_ID>.chromiumapps.org/auth0

I was using it to fill in my callback url BUT, the correct callback URL should be of the form
https://<YOUR_EXTENSION_ID>.chromiumapp.org/auth0

So yeah… one s character.

As a side question, does custom authentication plays well with chrome extensions? Is it worth trying? I would like to get rid of the default popup that launchWebAuthFlow offers and make authentication feel more “integrated”
