Branches with forward-slashes in the branch name break Gitako during navigation

See original GitHub issue

@kidonng Not at all, I am always grateful about your help. 😄

No hard feelings! I may have misunderstood your comment because the difference does seem clear to me 😥

Now that I’m taking a closer look, the code I’m referencing is a little bit off, it should be this disambiguateReference function which tells the branch and file path apart, which in turn depends on getCurrentCommittish.

Perhaps Refined GitHub also depends on DOM elements to achieve that?

Indeed. I see you have figured it out by yourself.
