The easiest way to run the built extension is to use
web-ext which will run a
separate it in a separate browser profile and reload it automatically on changes
to the source files. From the project root directory:
# Replace '--target chromium' with "--target firefox-desktop" for Firefox. yarn run web-ext run --source-dir src --target chromium \ --start-url 'https://www.google.com/search?q=whatever'
Alternatively, you can load this directory as an unpacked extensions to your browser.

In addition, please try to reproduce the bug in a clean browser profile with no
other extensions. The easiest way to do it is to clone the repo and use
git clone https://github.com/infokiller/web-search-navigator cd web-search-navigator yarn install && yarn build # Replace chromium with firefox-desktop for firefox yarn run web-ext run --source-dir src --target chromium
This will open a clean browser instance with no other extensions. Note that this browser instance will have the default extension options (including permissions for alternative search engines), so you may need to modify the option.
