Hey, the latest update to Brave desktop on linux ( V1.21.73 (Mar 3, 2021) sems to have introduced a UI bug relating to the IPFS companion extension.

As you can see, the extension is grey-colored, and is not showing the number of peers connected to my local node.
Here is what I see on IPFS companion UI page:
I can’t change this status message no matter how much I click on “power” button on the IPFS companion extension to make it shutdown and restart.

Is this a UI bug on part of the IPFS companion extension?
