Where is the ability to install custom GreaseMonkey scripts? I've installed greasemonkey. My dialog box under tools only has GreaseMonkey -> [Enabled, Manage User Scripts..., New User Scripts..., User Script Commands (greyed out)]

The "Manage User Scripts" dialog box is here: http://img182.imageshack.us/img182/5907/screenshotat.png

I'm using GreaseMonkey version 0.8.20090123.1 on Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (Jaunty) with Firefox 3.0.14

UPDATE Ok, the right answer here is to rename the file to a .user.js (literal) extension - which userscripts will do for you - and link to it in a webpage. There is no longer an Install Script dialog or anything of that sort that permits you to browse to a .js file and simply install. (that I know of)

You should consider taking your update and making that an answer to your own question. –  random Sep 25 '09 at 23:59

Use Open File from File menu and open the script. Greasemonkey will recognize it.

Isn't there a 'New User Scripts' option, like you mention, under your GreaseMonkey menu?

yes, but that is if you want to create a script, it makes like a boiler plate and opens up an external editor. –  Evan Carroll Sep 25 '09 at 21:09

...into which you can paste the script. –  Mark Sep 25 '09 at 21:43

Choose one from userscripts.org, and you should be prompted to install it.
