Yeah, I've been struggling with this issue. HN changed their RSS feed to HTTPS-only, plus Chrome now has a stricter permissions system when it comes to extensions. I'm honestly not sure what's wrong and I haven't had a lot of time to look at it thoroughly just yet.
Having the same problem. Tried to delete local storage, nothing allocated. Not able to set options either. Don't know if that helps or confuses the issue. If I get some free time this weekend (bahahahahahaha) I will try to look at it a little bit more. Like the extension, annoying that it's been broke for a while.
