Awesome Cookie Manager: popup URI

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/14

I blogged about [WayBack] Awesome Cookie Manager before. The Awesome Cookie Manager lets the user manage cookies in Google Chrome. It is great.

It is even greater that the pop-up dialog has a URI:


Get it at [] Awesome Cookie Manager – Chrome Web Store:

Displays a list of all Google Chrome cookies. Allows searching, viewing, editing, saving, restoring, and deleting cookies.

It helped me solve the below cases, where I had too many cookies, to the Web Archive bailed out; Awesome Cookie Manager helped me to clear the right cookies:

MacOS: killing Chrome from the terminal

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/14

Every now and then, Chrome hangs to badly on MacOS that the whole Mac GUI becomes unresponsive so even the “Force Quit” dialog does not appear.

Sometimes you are lucky enough that you have a (remote) terminal shell open.

Then you can do either of these:

  • Less hard kill:
    • killall 'Google Chrome'
    • killall Google\ Chrome
  • Hard kill:
    • killall -9 'Google Chrome'
    • killall -9 Google\ Chrome

The less hard kill sometimes brings up an unresponsive task and still allows you to save any changed.

Chrome supported extension IDs

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/11

I wonder how you can programmatically open a Hangouts link from Chrome?

These dit not help:

So did some more digging.

TL;DR: did not find a solution; so any help is appreciated.

I found the IDs of then in [WayBack] extensions/common/ – chromium/src.git – Git at Google

namespace extension_misc {
const char kPdfExtensionId[] = "mhjfbmdgcfjbbpaeojofohoefgiehjai";
const char kQuickOfficeComponentExtensionId[] =
const char kQuickOfficeInternalExtensionId[] =
const char kQuickOfficeExtensionId[] = "gbkeegbaiigmenfmjfclcdgdpimamgkj";
const char kMimeHandlerPrivateTestExtensionId[] =
const char kProdHangoutsExtensionId[] = "nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd";
const char* const kHangoutsExtensionIds[6] = {
    "ljclpkphhpbpinifbeabbhlfddcpfdde",  // Debug.
    "ppleadejekpmccmnpjdimmlfljlkdfej",  // Alpha.
    "eggnbpckecmjlblplehfpjjdhhidfdoj",  // Beta.
    "jfjjdfefebklmdbmenmlehlopoocnoeh",  // Packaged App Debug.
    "knipolnnllmklapflnccelgolnpehhpl"   // Packaged App Prod.
    // Keep in sync with _api_features.json and _manifest_features.json.
// Error returned when scripting of a page is denied due to enterprise policy.
const char kPolicyBlockedScripting[] =
    "This page cannot be scripted due to an ExtensionsSettings policy.";
}  // namespace extension_misc

The odd thing is that the source does not match the Chrome web store designation:

Hangouts ExtensionId Source name Web store name
nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd kProdHangoutsExtensionId Google Hangouts
ljclpkphhpbpinifbeabbhlfddcpfdde Debug Google Hangouts (Extension, Beta); GOOGLE CONFIDENTIAL – FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY
ppleadejekpmccmnpjdimmlfljlkdfej Alpha Google Hangouts (Extension, Debug)
eggnbpckecmjlblplehfpjjdhhidfdoj Beta Google Hangouts (Extension, Alpha)
jfjjdfefebklmdbmenmlehlopoocnoeh Packaged App Debug 404 error
knipolnnllmklapflnccelgolnpehhpl Packaged App Prod Google Hangouts; Hangouts Chrome App is deprecated. Please switch to the Hangouts Chrome Extension.

You can not start the extensions in a tab; they need to start their view through the extension.

So these links do not work:

  • chrome-extension://nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd/mainapp.html?uv_main_window
  • chrome-extension://ljclpkphhpbpinifbeabbhlfddcpfdde/mainapp.html?uv_main_window
  • chrome-extension://ppleadejekpmccmnpjdimmlfljlkdfej/mainapp.html?uv_main_window
  • chrome-extension://eggnbpckecmjlblplehfpjjdhhidfdoj/mainapp.html?uv_main_window
  • chrome-extension://jfjjdfefebklmdbmenmlehlopoocnoeh/mainapp.html?uv_main_window
  • chrome-extension://knipolnnllmklapflnccelgolnpehhpl/mainapp.html?uv_main_window

Google Chrome URL chrome://devices/ -> your registered Google Cloud devices like printers

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/18

Just learned a new Google Chrome URL chrome://devices/ which lists your Google Cloud devices like printers.

Though in the case of OKI printers, you have to enter your printers at the printer which the Menu button is a painful exercise. [WayBackoki-c332dn-control-panel_maxwidth.jpg (525×550).

You can also view the device list in

For some OKI printers (including the MC342 series) you need to update the firmware. For a Mac, you need the below firmware update tool that automagically:

  1. detects the printers
  2. finds the firmware on the internet
  3. updates the printer

Tool: [WayBackFWUP_020000_10.7.dmg via [WayBackFirmware Update | OKI Global
