gif scrubber stopped working, always says "not a valid gif file"

I have been using gif scrubber on many occasions for a few years, but today it just stopped working. Every file I try to use it on, the window pops up and says "not a valid gif file." I have found this to be true now on both Chrome and Firefox. I have made sure I have given it permissions for all sites. I don't see why this suddenly went wrong. What can I do?

Nothing happens

The extension lights up when I open a page with just a .gif in it but I don't see any player controls, the keyboard shotcuts (ie space to pause) don't work, and generally it just doesn't seem to do anything.

The extension has not worked for me for about a year

I just get two circles "Download" and "Render" that don't move or load anything. What am I doing wrong? If you need any other information I will be happy to give it.

Doesn't work. I get a pop up screen, with two circles labeld "download" and "render"
The "download" quickly circles up and shows 100% in the center.
That's it.
Nothing else happens.
Is something supposed to happen?

Menu for GIF Scrubber not even appearing.

I'm using Chrome on a mac, and have installed the plugin, I recall it working in the past, but when I right-click on any GIFs atm, I don't get any option for the GIF Scrubber, please advice?

Only in new window?

I thought from the description that this would show a little "gif player" on any gif I might find, on any webpage, right away. But instead I have to right click the gif and open it in a new tab all the time. Is this how this is supposed to work? If so, it's a bit tedious, an embedded player would be better...
