I'll provide an exact account of what I'm trying to do, in case the answer can vary depending on the plug-in.

At work, I've installed the Feed Intent Viewer plugin without incident [With the latest Chrome version].
When I wanted to install the same plugin into my Chrome browser at home, I was prompted to sign in to Chrome. When I refused to do that, the browser didn't allow me to install the extension.

I was signed in in neither of those cases, yet I was able to install an extension in the first case and not in the second. Why? Can I somehow work around it?

I've tried googling around, of course, in case it needs to be said. – ver Oct 11 '12 at 7:55
It just occurred to me that I probably was signed into gmail at work, and not at home. – ver Oct 11 '12 at 8:07

Turns out I had to sign in to GMail. The browser still displayed an option to "Sign In To Chrome", so that probably is a different thing altogether.
