It looks like a recent change to the markup of the site might have broken the "Metafilter favorites browser

I find lately there have been numerous interesting threads, and comments to those threads. Is there a way to have the most favourited comments show up at the top? I don't generally partake in discussions and prefer to read.

I was reading through a thread about health care and thought how nice it would be to have a script that would put a national flag next to the user's name so I could keep track of what country they live in. Wondering if anyone out there with such skills would help make my wish come true IF
it is even possible based on the information currently in user profiles.

As a bit of a brain saver I've made a GreaseMonkey script that hides every comment in a discussion on mefi that has less than 5 favourites. [more inside]

FireFox. MetaFilter. A script on this page has stopped responding, do you want to stop the script, debug the script, or cry. Anybody else seeing this on Firefox 2.x? [more inside]

I know that this is an issue best addressed by the creator of MetaFilthy, but before I email him, I wanted to make sure that it's really a MetaFilthy bug, and not some problem on my end, and Metafilter is pretty much guaranteed to have the internet's largest population of MetaFilthy users.
Is anyone getting a MetaFilthy bug when they open a MeFi page saying "Exception in Metafilthy.showIfValidURL NS_ERROR_DOM_INDEX_SIZE_ERR Index or size is negative or greater than the allowed amount line 1012 of undefined undefined"?

Contemplating the FeaturePony: The MeFi Navigator Greasemonkey script
is frakkin' insanely useful, if only for the 'poster' and 'admin' tags (I don't use the comment navigation stuff that much). Wouldn't Safari and IE users praise the ground mathowie walks on if it got built into the system itself?

I run a Greasemonkey script
that highlights "heavy links" - links such a Youtube or .mov that might take a while to download.
Should this script action be incorporated into the meta universe?
Proper etiquitte is to flag such heavy links but if you Firefox users install this script and say look at posts tagged with video
, you will see many examples of posters who bother to tag their posts but don't flag their links. Then there are many who don’t tag or flag.
Even if you don't support such highlighting at the site (It will just make people lazy), how are my filters? What else do I need to include? [jeez, trying to get the below to display properly was very trying]

GreaseMonkey script: Show Comments
Users often reference other user's comments (example
). If you're as lazy as I am you don't like clicking back to see what the original comment was. This script displays the original comment inline. Screenshot inside.

The current firefox search plugins
for Mefi were written ages ago for the built-in site search (hence they don't work anymore). Can any of our hotshot code cowboy members look into making one that uses the yahoo search? I'm particularly looking for one to search AskMe.

's a little Greasemonkey
script that filters out posts by any users you don't want to read on Metafilter (if you use Firefox).
If you want to use it, download Greasemonkey and restart your Firefox if you haven't already. Then click on the first link and then the Greasemonkey install button on the top right hand corner.
By default, it only filters on single Mefi article pages, not on preview or on Metatalk, but you could easily change the Included Pages. By default, it filters out ParisParamus and dios as users but you could very easily download this to your local drive and edit it -- or I'd put up any other variations that were useful (or even come up with a way for you to edit preferences from the program).
This was fun. Was it a good idea? Discuss.

Ok, as mentioned here
, there's always interest in a killfile script. Well, I just finished the one I've been working on (with help from Plutor) and it's available here
. What makes mine worth it when there's already a script out there? Well, [MI]

I've written a Greasemonkey script that does pretty much what leftcoastbob suggested here
It adds a few refinements: the replacement name is "Poster" for the Poster and "Comment N" for commenters, where N is the number of their first comment in the currently viewed thread, so if the same commenter posts more than once in the thread, all his comments have the same replacement name.

This may not be strictly a Mefi bug, but...
I wanted to use the [This Is Good]
script for the first time today, on this thread
, and found the following error message:
"Sorry, something's broken.
Don't know why, but this script has stopped adding new posts to the database, and I'm too busy with Christmas right now to figure it out. I'll work on it soon after the Holidays, I promise. Sorry!
So, all the other users of that script - in that thread and others - I guess it ain't doing what ya thought, sadly. Is it something on the Mefi end thats causing it to freak out?
