To tackle this, create a new GitHub Access Token.
If logged-in, visit https://awesomeopensource.com/project/settings/tokens
Generate a new token, select
repo scope and create a one.
Copy and store the generated token which looks something like:

Click on extension icon and then on

Right-click on enhanced-github extension and click on
Options in the dropdown menu.
Enter the valid GitHub Access Token
SAVE and Enjoy the benefits.
This browser extension will automatically pick this valid access token and Bingo!
