Wordpress Version 5.9.3 LottieFiles Version 1.0.3 A few issues after installing the plugin: 1) The backend display has changed slightly - bolds are bolder and some images have a think border around them 2) Front end animations no longer work when controls are hidden 3) My site now loads the lottie plugin css on every page front and backend - it is 250KB, which makes it twice the size of any other file on any page. This is too large to be useable for me. Ill update my rating after improvements

Edited: Sorry, it was reviewing the other plugin titled "Lottie Player block – Implement Lottie animations.". For my defense that plugin is using your logo and is released around the same time you released your plugin. Sorry, keep up the good job and we are waiting eagerly for your updates. Thanks.
