Version 20.0.1098.0 canary
Platform 2125.0.0 (Official Build) canary-channel stumpy
Firmware Google_Stumpy.2.102.0

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Enter guest mode
2. Go to CWS
3. Try to install an app

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Error message says "extensions are not enabled".  This is confusing because 1) the user is trying to download an app not an extension and 2) the user might not understand why they can't install.

Recommend revising this error to say something like "Oops, apps and extensions can't be downloaded while you're browsing in Guest Mode.  To install your items, please exit Guest Mode and sign in to your Google account."

Agreed - the flow is terrible. 
Part of the issue is that we are not honoring the --disable-extensions flag and therefore we go way too far down the installation route.

As per #11 I feel this is an extension issue and has nothing to do with Aura, Ash or ChromeOS. returning to untiraged.
