ChatGPT stopped functioning

The ChatGPT extension suddenly no longer works for me. No idea what could be the cause of that.
When I select the extension, nothing happens and a small cross appears (one of those close or delete crosses).

Probably you ran out of free credits, in which case check your Open AI account to see if you need to buy credits.

Hi Nick, thanks for your quick response. I have a paid account though already…

Do you have a paid Plus account? This does not cover API usage. You need to add credit to the API account separately:

No Plus Account, just credit for the API.

Now the extension works again! Yesterday, I saw a notification that the ChatGPT servers were very heavily loaded. Maybe it has to do with that?

It could well be that. I need to add more convenient error message reporting to the extension!
