Extension blocked by brave

Description of the issue:

A side-loaded extension gets removed by Brave. I can stop this on Windows with managed browser settings but don’t know how to stop it happening on linux.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Check Developer mode is on
  2. Load unpacked extension - (this extension replaces the new tab page).
  3. Check extension is working. It doesn’t do much so just select New Tab.
  4. Reboot and restart Brave

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave does not load the extension. Instead it displays:

Extension blocked by brave.

Expected result:
I would like to disable this behavior or whitelist the extension somehow.

Reproduces how often:
Whenever the browser is reset I think?

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Linux 5.15.11-76051511-generic
Version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Please note the extension is home grown. I do not use extensions from the chrome web store or any plugins likely to apply unauthorized periodic updates.
