Where did silent site sound blocker go? Long time user of that plugin and was much much better than this one which does not seem to work well. Constantly mutes current tab even after I unmute it or even whitelist it. Makes it near impossible to watch youtube videos.

Was working fine before but now will automatically mute the current tab and requires users to click to a different tab and back to the original tab inorder for sound to play. Makes the extension very annoying to use.
