 I've managed to reproduce the issue, see screenshots below. Looks like
 Youtube captions work differently for IE, basically each caption row is in
 a new element that gets injected in the DOM while for other browsers they
 just update the content of a div. Not sure if `MutationObserver` is
 supposed to look also at changes within an iframe, but looks like IE 11 is
 doing that. For a quick check, I've tried to change `observe()` option
 `subtree` to false and the bug disappeared. cc @pento :)
