greasemonkey scripts help

Recommended Posts

I've used GC Waypoint finder before a useful script which pus a GC find button on the Geocaching banner, but it stopped working on my computer - tried to reload it but when I get to the correct page and hover over the install button it says Install script, but when I click it it comes up with a few pages of actual code.

 

I tried the same on my laptop and it goes to the correct screen Greasemonkey installation and will install it.

 

Also on the script page under the install icon I find the instructions - To install, right-click on the icon, and select "Install User Script". If you do not see the menu option, click on the icon to open the file in a new tab (or window), and select "Install This User Script" from the Tools menu. But when I right-click I don't get the option and when I open the file there is not that option on the Tools menu.

 

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I am not a greasemonkey script expert, and perhaps better to ask on a greaemonkey user board.

I think the problem is that the association is incorrect in your browser.

Thus when you click on the script, the browser thinks its a text file and displays it, rather than knowing it is a script and intalling/executing it.

Tom - it sounds to me rather like Greasemonkey is disabled - therefore it stopped working and therefore when you try to install a script Greasemonkey does not pick up that you are trying to open a script (.user.js)

 

Please check to see if Greasemonkey is in fact enabled - On my Firefox (17.0.1) the greasemonkey icon is in the top right - same row as the address bar and google search input thingy. - checked that it is Enabled.

 

I am willing to wager this is the problem and as soon as you enable it your script which is already installed will automatically work.

 

Thanks for the tip for the script - I like that My Stuff menu option it adds.

 

If I am right you owe me a beer!

 

Let me know if yo manage to sort it out! I like Heineken and any craft beer!

Hey Trev. Thanks for your reply which I have only picked up now and that on my Kindle in Onrust.

Have no phone connection here except my cellphone as modem and that gets pricey.

Will be home next week and will of course buy you a beer if that is indeed the case.
