Manifest Errors:
- Unknown permission "management"
- Error processing update_url
- Error processing options_page
- Signature Verification Error: the signature on this .jar archive is invalid because the certificate used to sign this file has an unrecognized issuer.

On installation Errors:
- chrome.management.getAll
- chrome.extension.onRequest
Depends on: 1282981
Grepping through the source code reveals the following missing components from chrome.extension.  However, all of which are either undocumented in chrome or deprecated.

- chrome.extension.sendMessage --> undocumented
- chrome.extension.sendRequest --> deprecated
- chrome.extension.onRequest --> deprecated
- chrome.extension.onConnect --> undocumented
- chrome.extension.onMessage --> undocumented
Why would a flash video downloader need to get a list of all the installed extensions?
That is a good question, aswan. I have flagged all of the management APIs for further investigation of their uses by these extensions as many of them seem suspect.
