What's the problem?

Even if your session with the Identity Provider is valid, GitHub's single sign-on sessions expire frequently.

Once the session expires, you have to click on each organization's link to authenticate the IdP, and the more organizations that have SSO enabled, the more cumbersome it is.

How does this web extension solve the problem?

This web extension saves the pain by automatically clicking the Single sign-on link for each organization that prompts on the Top / Notifications / Profile page on GitHub and the Single sign-on page button beyond that.

User reviews
This worked for me with Firefox Nightly 112. When navigating to https://github.com/notifications, the plugin automates the process of clicking each of the SAML sign-on links, so I can see activity across all the organizations I follow. I appreciate the source code is available, and it is focused on doing exactly one thing. Thanks ganta!
