This is probably my first review on addons, I don't remember if I did one before. DO NOT USE this garbage, it's broken and instead replacing one character with another it replaces entire paragraphs with others, causing me to lose almost an hour of work; I somehow managed to work around it and save it undo-ing hundreds of times and even now I'm not sure if the article is okay, I guess I have to re-read it again!

Works well mostly, except on some websites it mangles the styling of some text input boxes so much that they become almost unusable.

Works very good in my Firefox (v.122), working in a MediaWiki envirionment. Problem: Icon does not show in the toolbar. Request: I would like to have the add-in window stay open, this would save a lot of key clicks.
