As of today I am seeing shorts on video pages again even though I have the ext set to block them. None on the home feed as of yet. I am also curious if you can force the comments back under the video rather than on the right side of the screen? Thanks for updating and getting rid of the Playables. Great work!!!!

Hey Eli, you might be seeing YouTube's new layout (if the comments are on the right side). The YouTube team keeps on switching things up so it's like playing whac-a-mole - there's a good chance your layout will return to normal with the comments underneath in a day or two and the extension should work properly again. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll do what I can

I can Finally hide those shorts. is there a way to hide breaking news section, it's annoying every time I open YouTube I manually close the breaking news section.

Absolutely. I'll get it incorporated into the next update. EDIT: I need more information about your location, since Breaking News isn't displayed in every country. If you can, shoot me an email at benjaminfrubin@gmail.com so I can get this incorporated into the extension

Amazing work on this, thank you! P.S. I noticed that after you pushed the update on May 10th my settings were refreshed. Would be nice to have long-term storage of settings.
