What Is GreaseMonkey and How Do I Use It?

Grease Monkey (GM) is a Firefox add-on that allows you to use scripts with Firefox (FF). Scripts can allow you to do various things that FF, I use scripts on Facebook to Help my Facebook experience. Here are the 3 things you need to use Greasemonkey

(Fig-1)
Greasemonkey
Just click the "Add to Firefox" button

Once you have GM installed, restart FF and you will have an icon in the right lower corner of your browser, like this (Fig-2) (the little monkey icon that looks kind of like Curious George)

(Fig-2)

The icon colorized like that means it's turned on

(Fig-3)

The icon non-colorized means its turned off

After installing and making sure it's ON (enabled) start adding GM scripts to it by going to: UserScripts.org

(Fig-3)

Click on the "Install" button on the script's page that you want to install into GM

To test to see if your shiny new script is enabled in GreaseMonkey, right-click the icon mentioned earlier, then click "Manage User scripts..."

You'll get this screen (Fig-4) that shows the bottom script in the list is enabled and the rest have been temporarily disabled (grayed out).

That's all there is to it! Now, whenever you visit the web page(s) that the script was designed for, the script will take effect. To disable the script, just right-click on the monkey icon, and uncheck the check-mark next to the script's name.

Note: You'll only see the script name and check-mark if you happen to be on the page that the script is made for, otherwise it won't show in the context menu, but you can still always get to it by clicking the mentioned Manage User Scripts menu item.

I will be posting on some scripts I Like next !
