Summary0006592: browser extension got scroogled
DescriptionIn the latest version of Chrome, installed extensions won't up in the browser's UI by default anymore. Instead it's literally hidden behind a "puzzle" icon.

Here's two things we can do about it:

1. Educate users about it in the "wallet got installed successfully" screen
2. Implement a "declarative page action", which will cause a Taler-specific icon to show up on pages that contain a taler:// URI (does not require extra permissions)
TagsNo tags attached.

Note the tiny "pin" icon you need to click on behind the puzzle piece symbol ...

Well, assuming some people install many extensions, this actually makes some sense: only show those that currently do matter. Of course we should do 1+2 as you write.

the only way to show up the icon is pin it or using a shortcut, now implemented
"declarative page action" can only be used for enabled/disable state at the moment
