What is Reddit Comment Companion?
The 'Reddit Comment Companion' is an innovative Chrome extension that upgrades your Reddit browsing experience. As you hover over a comment URL on a Reddit post, this extension displays a quick preview of the top 10 voted comments for the post, saving time for those interested in the post's community response. The extension also provides convenience in interacting with posts containing media via Reddit Enhancement Suite, enabling users to open comments directly when using image or video expand links. Users can freely customize the pop-up window, with features for drag, drop, and resize. Note that vote support will be added soon.

It used to work normally, now it doesn't, shows the last ten comments instead of the first. When I hover over comments the comment box doesn't show the top comment, but rather stops at the middle with no way to scroll to the top.
