Problem with Silverblue 36 and Gnome extensions

Hello, yesterday I decided to switch from Gentoo, who I used from now couples of years to Fedora Silverblue.

I have a problem actually, when I go to the gnome extension website, I have this error:

Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector.

I have already gnome-browser-connector installed, I installed it via rpm-ostree. My gnome version actually is: 42.4
Fedora version: 36.20221107.0

I’ve been using this app as a workaround: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.mattjakeman.ExtensionManager

EDIT: Oops, wrong one, I meant to link to the one Garrett linked to, sorry about that! (link fixed)

@zohran, @castrojo: The app you really want is Extension Manager, also on Flathub.

It’s a 3rd party effort, unlike the official GNOME Extensions app. However, Extension Manager does everything the official app does and much more. You can search for and install extensions right from inside the app.

(With it, you don’t need to worry about browser extensions or downloading and extracting ZIPs or anything like that.)
