@CharlieCroom Yeah, URL parsing is incredibly hard. Thanks for the pointer to the repo, I’ll just open an Issue there then. Helpful as always, thanks again, Charlie! 💍

@JonPorty If this still repros for you, could I ask you to let me know the exact browser version and operating system version you’re using, please?

@JonPorty This is working exactly as it should: It’s a long passage, so the extension takes the first couple of words and frames it by the last couple of words:
