I have a fix for the issue on Chrome if you want to take a look, instead of using window.addEventListener("loadstart", expandSubscriptions, true); we can use a Promise instead to wait for the DOM to load

// Wait for DOM to find elements
function waitForDOM(selector) {
return new Promise(resolve => {
if (document.querySelector(selector)) {
return resolve(document.querySelector(selector));

const observer = new MutationObserver(mutations => {
if (document.querySelector(selector)) {

observer.observe(document.body, {
childList: true,
subtree: true

// Execute function
waitForDOM('ytd-guide-section-renderer').then((target) => {

Thanks, I've updated it (0.1.7) based on your code. I just used the MutationObserver part of it.

Also, sorry for the really late reply... Gmail decided to mark emails from greasyfork as spam :(
