Chrome Plugins Missing?

by on Apr.27, 2015, under Tech Stuff

Ok, so you just updated recently to the latest version of chrome… notice you’ve got some plugins missing that you’re used to having? Yeah, me too. Ya know, things we take for granted until they’re gone… java, quicktime, citrix, etc. to name a few. Well, this is due to Google’s move to disable NPAPI plugins by default as they phase out support for them altogether. For the time being, however, you can re-enable these plugins by conducting the following operation:

  • Open Chrome and enter the following address : chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
  • At the top of the list you should now see ‘Enable NPAPI’ highlighted. Click ‘Enable’ on the link below it.
  • Restart Chrome completely and upon re-opening, enter the following address : chrome://plugins/
  • Review your plugins listed and make sure they’re all back

So what next? With Google phasing out NPAPI plugins, it’s advisable to start finding alternatives and/or look into what your favorite plugin developers plans are to move forward to more secure supported platforms.
