This extension use Obsidian's Local REST API plugin to save files, you need to install the Local REST API in Obsidian and copy its token to the extension's settings, and request permission to access address.

If you are using Local REST API for the first time and do not use HTTP port, you have to open a web page on the corresponding port (e.g. https://localhost:27014) in your browser to agree to Firefox's risk alert, otherwise the plugin will not be able to access the address properly.
