InAppBrowser plugin installed but the app can't find it

I have a project that is using oauth plugin (Facebook)… Its working for months.
Today I run ionic state clean and this command removed all of plugins.
I installed all again but when I run this at my app:

 $cordovaOauth.facebook(FACEBOOK_APP_ID, [scope]).then(function(result) {
  }, function(err) {

The alert on error is reporting Could not find InAppBrowser plugin.
If I run cordova plugin ls this plugin is installed.

Someone had a similar issue?

Remove inappbrowser first time by
cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.inappbrowser

add again inappbrowser plugin by command line.
cd appFolderName then run in CMD:

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-inappbrowser

that’s because the facebook plugin has a fallback mode if the facebook app is not installed on the device -> it opens a custom inappbrowser for login.

The issue is about ngCordova. The plugin name changed and ngCordova is testing for the old name.
I just opened an issue at ngCordova github.


Thanks the issues solved by remove the inappbrowser plugin and re-installed

I am having the same issue, when I list plugins, it is there but when I run my code on an android device I get this message in the console (from chrome remote debugger):
“Native: InAppBrowser is not installed or you are running on a browser. Falling back to, all instance methods will NOT work.”

I tried removing and reinstalling like detailed above but it is still happening.

any other ideas?

Were you able to solve this? I’m still running into this issue now, certainly removing and adding back the plugin didn’t work either.
