Lil Devil's Greasemonkey Scripts

By Lil Devil on May 14, 2011 – 3:47pm

Please Note: After the geocaching.com site update on May 4th, almost all of my scripts need to be updated. I was on a geocaching roadtrip and just got home the day before the update so I was unable to update my scripts ahead of time. I am now working feverishly to update my scripts. If you leave each script active, you will be automatically notified as each script is updated, or you can check here for a list. Thank your for your patience.

Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that enables web pages to be re-written on the fly. Page elements can be added, changed, moved, and deleted altogether. How a page is changed is controlled by a Greasemonkey User Script, which is written in JavaScript. I have written several User Scripts for the geocaching.com website, which are listed on the right. Click on each one for a detailed description of what they do.

In addition to Firefox with Greasemonkey, recent versions of Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Opera can also run User Scripts. Most of my scripts have been designed to be compatible with these other web browsers. A compatibility table is at the bottom of each script's page to show which browsers that script will work with. Scripts that don't have a compatibility table have not been tested yet.


Installing Greasemonkey: Go to the Greasemonkey page and click the "Add to Firefox" button. Due to security precautions, Firefox will require you to add that site (mozilla.org) as an allowed site for extension installation. When you click install, a yellow bar will appear at the top of the browser window saying it has prevented the site from installing software on your computer. To allow installation, click the "Edit Options" button, then click "Allow", then "Close". Then you need to re-click the install link to really install it. You will then need to restart Firefox for Greasemonkey to become active.

Installing a Script: After Greasemonkey is installed, click on the "install" link for a script. You will then see a dialog with the name and a brief description of the script. Click "Install". Follow the prompts to complete the process. When installing a script, there is no need to restart Firefox. It becomes active immediately.

Editing, Disabling, and Uninstalling a Script: Right-click on the Greasemonkey icon Greasemonkey icon in the Firefox statusbar, and select "Manage User Scripts..." In the dialog, select the script on the left-hand side. You can then disable, edit, or uninstall the script.

Updating a Script: All of my scripts include code to automatically check for updates every few days. When a script detects that a new version of itself is available, it will alert you. You can then decide if you want to install the update, or ignore the alert.


Announcement List: Join this mailing list and you'll receive an email whenever a new Greasemonkey script has been added to the site, or when an existing script has been upgraded.

You will receive a confirmation email. You must reply to this email in order to complete the subscription process. This ensures that I'm not sending mail to people who haven't asked for it. If you use a spam filter, please add lildevil.org to your whitelist.
