    Hello there. Congrats for your extension. That ruler saved my life! It looks like the ruler creates an issue on YouTube shorts. It looks like there is a black layer in front of the page. Could you please try to fix it? Thank you in advance!

    Hello! Thank you for your magnificent extension. I must use the ruler or somehow I lose all comprehension of the words I'm reading. Can you update it so it will work when reading PDFs on Google chrome? Thank you again
