Hi Mr. E gang! I’m going to introduce you to a great Chrome extension named “Toggle Extensions On/Off” and how it helped me troubleshoot 2 website display issues I was having. Hopefully, my experience will help you or a friend who might run into the same issue.
One of my issues involved Facebook Messenger not displaying at all – Which was problematic for tasks that required Facebook Messenger (i.e. Facebook Messenger Bot authentication). But it mainly hindered me from using the full Facebook Messenger page. I’ve had this issue for going on 4 months, I just assumed my PC was showing it’s age and it was time for an upgrade. After all, I didn’t have signs of a virus/malware after many virus scans.
My 2nd and more recent issue (which I couldn’t afford to ignore) was my eCommerce site. The homepage didn’t display properly, it was as though code was broken somewhere. After testing multiple devices I discovered the issue only displayed on my PC and only on the Chrome browser.

- Re-Enable extensions 1-by-1 while refreshing the website to see if the last enabled extension disrupted anything.
I eventually ran into an extension that was causing the issue. The extension was a suggested extension for compatibility for emoji’s across devices. EMOJIONE suggested the new extension, but EMOJIONE has been flawless from day one. Long story short, I deleted the suggested extension and I don’t even recall the name but if I see the suggestion again I’ll list it here.
Here’s the cool part. Out the
Until next time Mr. E gang, catch you later!
