Chrome was installed as a browser by my son because he said that it was more efficient---but it kept pushing for ads which didn't block AFAIK so here In Firefox I am which I prefer. but Chrome is now pestering me again even though it's uninstalled & not the default browser in the Microsoft i't URL for the script is [url]chrome://calendar/content/widgets/calendar-list-tree.xml:3[/url] I know you are going to say run with add-ons disabled but give instructions on how to do that & how do I identify which is the improper add-on? ](*,)
Win 10 Pro on my originally Dell Optiplex System 7 desktop, but now 32-bit latest Windows 10. Usually latest or latest-1 Thunderbird on all machines. Would like soon to buy a new laptop if my finances permit.

That error is more likely referring to chrome (lower case c) as a way to manipulate the Thunderbird user interface, rather than to Chrome, the Google browser.

Try disabling all extensions but one and then close and restart the program. (Disable them by using menu path Tools->Addons->Extensions->click on "Disable" for every extension but one.) See if the problem is present. If not, enable an additional extension and close and restart the application. Repeat this procedure until the problem reappears. The last enabled extension will be the cause of the problem.

chrome:// is a chrome url and as said has nothing to do with the separate Google Chrome web browser which came out in 2008 long after Mozilla suite (now SeaMonkey), Firefox and Thunderbird.
In a browser, the chrome is any visible aspect of a browser aside from the webpages themselves (e.g., toolbars, menu bar, tabs). This is not to be confused with the Google Chrome browser.
