Thanks for installing RES - here's a look at what's new...


Do you keep seeing this page open every time you load a page on Reddit and are you unable to save any RES settings?


If that's the case, you're probably running Chrome (or Safari) and have a corrupt user profile, and/or something else preventing RES from saving settings / data. This is usually solved by uninstalling RES, closing all instances of Chrome to ensure it closes completely, then starting Chrome and reinstalling RES.

A few users have reported the above solution not working, but reinstalling Chrome did fix the issue in their case.

RES is entirely free - as in beer, as in open source, as in everything. If you like our work, a contribution would be greatly appreciated.
