Solution: Google Chrome error: “An error has occurred – Download was not a CRX”

I’ve seen this problem increasingly often with the latest version (24) of Google Chrome.  It happens when trying to install an extension from the Chrome Web Store — and nothing seems to correct it.

An error has occurred
Download was not a CRX

So, what’s the solution?  Visit the Chrome Web Store from within Incognito Mode, then install the extension from there.  Problem solved!  (Or, at least sidestepped anyway.)
