I installed this extension so I could see the quote table on my summary page. Works okay, except: I monitor 3 indexes in my main portfolio account (DJI, S&P, Nasdaq) and I was able to import the histories for the indexes with no problem. I did make one error, by leaving the title of one index at "New Security." I deleted that false security and started over.
So, here are the problems with the extension:
1) it still shows "new security" as a valid listing, even though it appears nowhere else in the program.
2: it lists all 3 indexes as negative amounts, which doesn't really matter in the long run -- they don't show up in any reports -- but is disconcerting and annoying. The developer needs to find a way to account for the zero balance of indexes. I can't put them in as a buy/xfer; it would wreck the accounting elsewhere in the program. I'm attaching a screen shot so you can see what I mean.

    I was able to fix the negative listings by editing the history for each index and putting the daily close of the index in the "price" section of the edit history pane. Now the numbers show up properly. This leaves me with the issue of how to get rid of the "new security" security, which has no information and is not showing up anywhere in the program except this extension. Any suggestions?

    New issue, but related to this thread: I signed up for an account and verified it. Why am I still being asked to fill in captchas?
