Full Version: Annoying crx calls with Chrome

Hello,

When testing with Chrome, I found annoying *.crx calls in waterfalls.
I've tried to block them but without success.

It seems to be chrome extension updates.

Is there a way to eliminate them ?

Thx

Private instance or here on the public instance? I've been playing whack-a-mole with the extension updates and recent agent updates should have them blocked but if not it would help to see a failure so I can add more blocking to the agents.
I'm seeing this issue with Chrome from the Manchester instance at the moment. It's skewing a lot of stats.
ok, I just pushed an update that expanded the blocking and that appears to have fixed it. Let me know if you see any more crx downloads sneak in.
