The menu button on Chrome is orange. When I click on it, the menu states there is an extension error. If I click on the error notification, I'm taken to the list of extensions that I have installed.

Nowhere in that list does it note which extension is causing the error.

According to this several-year-old post, if I turn on developer mode, there should be a red box around the extension causing the problem. However, when I turn on developer mode, there is no indication of any kind for any of the extensions.

How can I tell which extension is causing the problem?

    Divide and conquer. Disable 1/2 the extensions. Does it still fail - Yes. Then it is in the other 1/2. etc. etc. – DavidPostill Sep 1 '16 at 16:08

    I was hoping there was a quicker method than the process of elimination, especially since this error is not constant. It takes some time after a new browser session is started for it to appear. – Tim Sep 1 '16 at 18:21
  • @Tim - Have you tried David's suggestion? – Ramhound Sep 13 '16 at 18:14
  • @Ramhound I figured it out. I don't remember if I used his suggestion or not because I also remember suddenly realizing what extension it had to be (although I don't recall now). – Tim Sep 13 '16 at 18:22
