The iCal file has an invalid format

When I right click on the link that would download my calendar event, and select the extension, I get the error iCal has an invalid format. There is no additional detail to help with troubleshooting, or to identify what is wrong with the file or if I am doing something incorrectly.

A potentially very useful app is just wasting bits... :-(

Doesn't work from download

Hello, just wanted to report that the tool doesn't work if the ics file comes from download.
What I mean is that if for example I downloaded an event so it can be accessed from the download panel of chrome (CTRL + J), here when right clicking on my ics file, I have the possibility of adding it to my calendar with the dropdown menu and everything but the final step with the popup doesn't work.

If you need further details please ask me what you need!

I've been using this extension for months but today, the extension is greyed out and when I click on an ICS file, I don't have the usual menu. Would be ever so grateful for some help.

Event Creation Failing

Downloading an ics from and importing through the gcal settings window works, however the same event/ics fails using this extension. Right click, select calendar, then the popup appears at the bottom of the screen stating "importing event into 'mycalendar'...", followed by the message "Cant create event."
