    @stan_k: Make sure that the browsers are fully up to date (check for updates), and then restart your PC. You will also need to have Native Messaging enabled in 1Password Help > Advanced in order for them to connect. Let me know how it goes. :)

  • I just had the same thing happen to me. Specifically, when I click on the 1Password icon in the browser tool bar, nothing happens.

    1Password version:
    Extension version:
    Chrome version: 72.0.3626.96 (Official Build) (64-bit) == the latest as of when i posted this
    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Home
    Version: 10.0.17134 Build 17134

    1Password Help > Advanced has "Use Native Messaging Protocol" enabled

    I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the browser extension.

    Any ideas?

  • Oh, nevermind... it's the Chrome 72 update issue.
