It seems that this extension only works on Google Chrome but it doesn't seem to work on Microsoft Edge. Any bugs?

Works for a day or two. Then stops working. Re-installed, but issue persists. Tried downloading from Chrome Webstore; same issues. It's a shame because it is a really useful extension, when it works.
