Greasemonkey hacks

Grease my monkey, guvnor: Greasemonkey scripts get talked about a lot in Metatalk comments, and they seem pretty useful. I would like to ask our more Greasemonkey-oriented friends to recommend the best ones and discuss their experience of installing and using them. [more inside]

Mark a question 'favorite' when you're on the question page?

Re AskMefi: Can I mark a question as a favorite only on the main page, and not on the question page? Sometimes I don't know it's a favorite until I read some answers. But it appears I need to go back to the question list to make it a fave. Thx!

Pony: Can we get a keyboard shortcut for adding favorites?

Favorite categorization revisited

"The page is still loading, please wait to add favorites."

A few other threads have asked about the error message "The page is still loading, please wait to add favorites." and have found solutions in turning off NoScript or AdBlock. I ran into the same issue this week and, after doing some investigating, found it was specifically necessary to make sure the cloudfront.net domain was "Allowed" in AdBlock. [more inside]

For The Bestest Most Best'ed Comments Ever

Pony: a 'best-answer' kind of highlight on the comment that currently has the most favorites, at any given time, in any given thread. Better yet, what if each comment actually had a "best comment in thread" link next to the "+", and the comment currently with the most votes for "best" would be highlighted in the thread?

Popular Favorites Usability

I love the Popular Favorites page but maybe it could use a little work? It seems like it would be easier for people to follow if the trucated comments had a [Read More] link. Also, the titles of the posts on the left don't look like links, they are the same color as the text, maybe a [Read] link or color change or something there too? [more inside]
