    Thank you for the report. I've uploaded a new version on AnkiWeb. Please use Tools - Add-ons - Check for Updates to update the add-on and restart Anki.

    Maybe you used it too much, but I don't know how much is too much. It seems to work fine for a few hundred of cards.

    I added a possible fix for it by sleeping for 30+ seconds if it happens, but maybe it won't be enough.

    At the moment it can be downloaded as .ankiaddon from GitHub and installed either by double-clicking on it or using Tools - Add-ons - Install from file.

    As an alternative, waiting for 5 minutes, or maybe a few hours, should be enough to make it disappear for some time.
