Any Simplify Your Web extension that has an output display

After installing an extension, no matter what you are trying to do, no matter the parameters you set, the output does not come out right. You can see pictures but no text for instance.

What is happening? You may experience a file access permission error on the stylesheets used by the extension.

Find out how to diagnose and ways you can fix these issues at Troubleshoot Missing Styles And Scripts (Access Permissions Errors).

While this could be a bug introduced by the latest extension update, it actually is most likely an issue with the external library that is necessary for most of our extensions to work.
