Angular routing and chrome extensions

I have built an ionic app using angular. I have a login screen that checks if a users details were accepted and redirects using router.nagivate([’/relativePath/’]).
This works fine in both the mobile and web app but when i load the app as a chrome extension it doesnt render the page. However getting to the same page using routerlink in html does render the page correctly in the chrome extension.
What am I missing?
