When activated, at an interval of one minute, this Firefox add-on searches for the Connect button on a Colab notebook webpage and clicks it automatically. This action prevents the Colab session from shutting down, possibly losing precious undergoing trainings of your ML/DL models.

To fire the extension up, when on a Colab page, simply click on its icon and it will start clicking the Connect button every minute. The extension won't start on pages other than Colab.

User reviews
The active session window is on and off periodically. It seems to be the mechanism to trick Colab's detection. Anyway, the add-on works as expected.
