What steps will reproduce the problem?

We need test chrome extension with ava and puppeteer with circleci.

Browser run code:

const runBrowserWithExtension = async (test) => {
    const extensionPatch = './dist/extension/';
    const browser = await puppeteer.launch({
        headless: false,
	timeout: 1 * 60 * 1000,
	ignoreHTTPSErrors: true,
        args: [
    const pages = await browser.pages();
    const page = pages[0];

   page.setDefaultNavigationTimeout(2 * 60 * 1000);

   test.context.browser = browser; = page;

Circleci config

      - deploy:
          command: |
            if [ "${CIRCLE_BRANCH}" == "master" ]; then

What is the expected result?

Browser run in headless: false mode.

What happens instead?

After circleci build and run ava test code we have error:

            name: AssertionError
            message: Rejected promise returned by test
            values: {"Rejected promise returned by test. Reason:":"Error {\n  message: 'Timed out after 60000 ms while trying to connect to Chrome! The only Chrome revision guaranteed to work is r543305',\n}"}
            at: Timeout.onTimeout (node_modules/puppeteer/lib/Launcher.js:257:14)

On local Mac mini all work perfectly. Some problem with puppeteer in circleci docker container.

With headless: true all work, but in this mode can’t install extension.
