I have a problem or a question about the Chrome Extension

If you are encountering problems with your Chrome StumbleBar please be sure you are running the latest version of the extension and have the most up-to-date version of Chrome. If you have the most recent versions and are still encountering issues please contact us at: http://www.stumbleupon.com/feedback.

Where do I download the plugin?

You can download the StumbleBar for Chrome from our Downloads page.

 

How do I upgrade to the new version?

Chrome will notify you when you restart your browser that you have an update for your extensions. Going to the Chrome>Preferences>Extensions page (chrome://settings/extensions ) will allow you to manage your extensions and see what version of StumbleBar for Chrome you are running. The most recent version can be found on the Chrome Web Store .

What new features are there?
The new version of the StumbleBar for Chrome presents all the functionality of our StumbleBar for the Web without having to visit our site. Instead you can take the Chrome extension with you as you Stumble so you can Like and Share from anywhere.

 

 

How does the StumbleBar for Chrome differ from the StumbleBar for Web?
For a detailed breakdown of the buttons on the StumbleBar for Chrome, see below.

 

What are the main features and buttons in the extension?

Let’s break down the StumbleBar for Chrome’s different buttons.

Starting from the left:

1.  The Home button will take you back to your profile page.

2. The Settings button will open the Settings menu where you can choose between themes, including Classic Mode. You can also navigate to your Profile page, the Help Center, your Settings pages or sign out of StumbleUpon.

3. The Close button will hide the widget until you click the extension icon to bring it back up.

4. The Stumble Mode button will let you pick what to Stumble. Choose a specific Interest or a mode such as Trending, People I Follow, Photos, or Videos to target your Stumbles.

5. The Stumble button will take you to your next recommendation.

6. The Like button is your tool to tell us what web pages you like. These pages will be saved to your profile page so you can easily find them later.

7. The Share button allows you to add a personal message and share a web page you’ve Stumbled with a follower on StumbleUpon or your friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter.

8. The Dislike button is your tool to tell what web pages you dislike. This will help us learn what kind of stuff not to recommend to you.

9. The Report button opens a drop-down that allows you to pick a specific reason why you do not like a web page. The reasons you can choose include:
- Report: Spam should be used for content with no value for you or any other member. You may use this option for Stumbles that are unsolicited requests to register, look suspicious, or contain scams.
- Report: Wrong Topic this opens a menu that allows you to choose the correct Interest for a page.
- Report: Not Available when a web page appears to be broken or a 404.
- Block Site to block an entire domain, which means you will no longer receive any pages from that domain again. You can unblock the domain later if you change your mind from your “Stumbles” tab in your Settings pages.

10. The Inbox button will show when you have pending shares. Clicking this will open the Activity Center where you can see your Shares.

11. The List button allows you to add Stumbles to existing Lists or create new Lists.

12. The Info button will take you to the Info page for a Stumble where you can see more about this Stumble.

13. The Expand/Collapse button toggles the full toolbar.

How do I hide and reveal the Chrome Extension?

How do I sign in and sign out via the StumbleBar for Chrome?
To sign in via the extension click “Login” to bring up fields to enter your username or email and password. You can also click the Facebook or Google buttons if you have connected your account to StumbleUpon.
 

 

How do I uninstall the Chrome Extension?

From there you can “Disable” or “Remove” the extension.

How does Disable differ from Uninstall?
Disabling the Chrome StumbleBar works similarly to uninstalling the extension but does not remove the application itself. Disabling the Chrome StumbleBar will keep the extension from opening automatically when you open your browser. It will also remove the StumbleUpon icon to the right of your address bar.To re-enable the extension you must go to Chrome>Preferences>Extensions and check the box that says “enable” next to the StumbleUpon extension.
