Anyone installing this, make sure command prompt isn't disabled via group policy... this addon appears to use it at some point and was preventing the login button from doing anything.

Same as below - Log in button does nothing on Edge Browser - unable to use and will have no access once IE goes. Please extend the Internet explorer use until fixed
