Zgadza sie niedawno się coś musiało zmienić a dotychczas działało wszystko dobrze

Such an improvement, 5/5 stars! Only feedback is that the chat icon is too dark to see in this mode, but you can still clearly see the word "chat" so it's not too bad

Impossible de mettre une note au dessus de 3 étoiles car, comme dit dans un autre commentaire : l'extension a marché au poil pendant des mois, mais voilà quelques semaines que le fond des messages est blanc (quasiment illisible du coup). Une MAJ s'impose.....
