Hi have been using Hootlet for years and think its great! Unfortunately since the redesign a couple of weeks ago it doesn't pick up and details from Facebook except the basic link and is now picking up pictures that are not on the page. Today the hootlet button is not working and bringing up a 404 message. Have uninstalled and reinstalled extension but no joy. Any ideas?
