Extension is interfering with some functions within LMS (Blackboard)

While attempting to utilize certain functions within Blackboard, after going through IT Support ruling out certain things and them trying to replicate on their end, it was suggested to use Chrome Incognito. The error did not persist so I began to troubleshoot further on my systems. I disabled all extensions and enabled one by one, testing functionality. When LL is enabled, and only that one, it breaks the functionality of the page (only certain ones). This is a new problem because in the May 2023, there was no issue and I have had LL enabled constantly since I was first made aware of it... sometime.

Incompatibility between the Extension and Harvest


If the Lean Library Extension is set to all sites, then when I use Harvest (, the page formatting is affected and unusuable! If I disable, Harvest works.

If the Lean Library Extension had certain urls (user defined) that I could exclude, the problem would be fixed. A suggestion is the ability to exclude certain URLs.

Is there a way for the developers to be in touch with Harvest to understand why this is happening?

Lean library malfunctioning

Lean library automatically uses itself when I don't need it to, and continuously refreshes the page so I can't access sources I need to download them. It keeps glitching when it tries to automatically log me in.

lean library dowloaded, now how to use it???

After downloading Lean, I see nothing where I could do a simple library search.
My extensions show Lean library and Loopio. No instructions about what to do with them.
When I used to go to my university's library site in the past (Stanford), I could open a window and search for articles I wanted to see within the category of my choice. How am I allowed to do such a thing with Lean? Opening the Lean extension offers no search window.
