Give me twisties or give me death. April 8, 2008 7:55 AM   Subscribe

Where's that greasemonkey script or Firefox extension that adds expand/collapse twisties to you 'recent activity' page?

I recently nuked all of my scripts and extensions from orbit (rather than just disabling them, because I'm stoopid) and that's the one I miss. But I can't find it -- I've looked at the FAQ and the wiki and MeFi page on Userscripts.org, but unless my glance keeps sliding past it without noticing it, it's not listed. My google-fu is also weak. Hope me?

It's dead. I killed it when the "remove from activity" links were added.

Also, if you did this to try to fix a problem you were having, you can always start up Firefox with the -safe-mode flag to temporarily disable all plugins and themes.

Oh. Darn. I'm sad that you killed it. Being able to expand and collapse items on that page was useful function just for reading it, I never really used it to permanently ignore things.

I'm fairly sure it didn't function anymore after the "remove from activity" feature was added, jacquilynne.

Err, it functioned until I removed it yesterday.

If someone's got it installed or a cached version sitting around, feel free to send it to me and I'll put it back on userscripts.org. I don't think it's worth rewriting, but I'd be happy if someone rescued it from death.

I do have it installed (and love it), but how do I get it from my scripts page to you? Where can I view the code?

ooh, that'd be a useful script to have.

Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\loginuser\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profilename\gmscripts\
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles\profilename\gmscripts\

Where profilename is eight random characters, a period, and your profile name (default is "default"). I'm not sure what the filename will be, but if there's nothing there with a reasonable filename, it's probably going to be called a four- or five-digit-number (.user.js). You should be able to open them up in a text editor (notepad or some such) and read the first few lines to see if it's the right one.

My email address is in my profile. Just wing it over and I'll throw it back up.

Sorry, I think the last bit of the path is gm_scripts, with an underscore.
