CTRL blocks other shortcuts

Holding CTRL blocks all other CTRL shortcuts, even when the hand tool is deactivated.

I can't even copy&paste without right clicking the mouse anymore. :(

Fix for Chrome 61

1.4.0 - 18/10/2017
- Fix issue with Chrome 61+. Since emitting custom Wheel Event no longer has any effect on scrolling, the extension now falls back to update element.scrollTop & scrollLeft directly, which might cause layout issues with certain websites while scrolling.
- Also as you might have noticed, this extension no longer works with chrome's pdf reader. After an update some time ago, Chrome's pdf reader has started to run within a hidden internal extension window and there seems to be no way for other extension to manipulate scroll position of that window.

Stopped working

Hey, your extension finally broke. Lasted over three years since the last update! Nice work! Love the tool; are there any plans to repair it?

At first I blamed my mouse, but no, it's the extension. Please fix it, it's so useful!
