What operating system are you using? What browser?
Please provide any additional information below.
This seems like a possible security/privacy flaw (also annoyance). In order
to configure an extension it must currently be running. This leaves a
window between when an extension is enabled, and when it is configured
properly. If the extension comes with default configuration which could
expose information, or allow abuse of the system, it would be possible to
exploit during this time.
This seems to be done for a technical reason. Currently the admin
configuration pages won't be loaded or accessible unless the extension is
enabled. Fixing this issue might require a large change to the way
extensions are structured or executed.
