This is a good improvement to the Hacker News site. My only bug I've notice is when HackerNews has the "Applications are open for YC Summer 2022", the banner at the bottom blocks off the "More" button and it prevents users from going to the following page.

Commenting with this extension is currently broken-- I had to disable it for now. It'd be great to get a fix!
