I seem to trapped in a circular argument,

Gnome error message when I get to their extensions page "We cannot detect a running copy of GNOME on this system, so some parts of the interface may be disabled".

Their proposed solution that doesn't help "Make sure that either is whitelisted for the click-to-play feature, or click-to-play is turned off entirely. Check your browser's help for more details."

What browser are you using?

You have to activate the plugin called Gnome Shell Integration and let it access . In Firefox you can do so by clicking on the grey "Lego" (or whatever that wants to be), left to the lock, left to the address bar.

Got an answer myself by trial and error. Had to login to Gnome-extension site with a new account. The messaging from Fedora could have been clearer for both the Gnome exact version number and about needing a Gnome-extensions account.

No account needed to use , download and install extensions.

You don't need a gnome-extensions account, just activate the plugin once you get to the website (see Florian's comment).
