at this time, the screen became dark (sometimes the session is closed automatically), and after a few seconds the desktop appeared again, but the “installed extensions” tab indicates me no extension was installed. moreover, when I refresh the page of the extension, the button is “off”.
I disabled the popup blocker but it changed nothing.
on other browsers (chrome, opera) I even have no on/off button…
I created an admin user, changed of user, and launched FF.
back to the gnome extension page, I saw 2 little popups : it effectively asks me to allow some gnome related stuff.
now, I remember it has already showed me these 2 popups with the first user, sorry I did not remembered this.
but the installation of new extensions still fails, in the same manner.
I called lg, but on the extensions tab I see none. It is coherent with what I see in the extensions site of gnome : even after having flipped on an extension, on “installed extensions” there was nothing.
and the directory gnome-shell only contains the sub-directory application_state

So is this a pure gnome install, or you added later as a desktop?
Also check journalctl as your trying to install and extension, open a
Then add an extension and see what gets printed out… ctrl+c to exit
the journalctl follow command.

I would guess there is possibly some conflict, you should be able to remove the pattern? Else probably quicker to re-install with just gnome, then check all is ok. Then if wanting to use MATE, try and see what happens, if your using btrfs, you can always rollback to the snapshot before you installed MATE. Or maybe raise a bug, up to you.
I have an other question : I installed tumbleweed, but I wonder about the utility of this version, and if the leap version wouldn’t be better.
My computer requires a recent version of the bluetooth managers because I own a bluetooth keyboard, and this keyboard is used on 2 computers (opensuse & windows); the keyboard, a logitech k380, is able to switch from one computer to the other, but some linux distributions don’t manage this keyboard well. this is not the case of opensuse, which is as powerful as windows in this domain.
The other requirement I need is the ability to manage some vmware virtual disks, but I think that for this tumbleweed & leap should be equals in speed and compatibility.
I saw you are using leap, may you tell me why you are not using the latest paqkages in tumbleweed?
Try the following command first to see if things can be fixed up;
I use Tumbleweed, but only for testing and helping out… My main desktop is Leap for stability, but also use SLED and SLES, I don’t need the latest and greatest most of the time.
I use KVM (Leap and SLES) for virtualization, no mucking around with having to build kernel modules etc. I can use virt-manager to connect to remote and local machines (both system and user) it’s much more flexible for me, gave up on the vmware and virtualbox products once had hardware that supported virtualization.
