NetBeans for default GreaseMonkey editor

Greasemonkey is a very popular Firefox plug-in. One can write JavaScript to customize how they view pages. I thought JavaScript support on NetBeans was added in 6.5 but I was very wrong!

I have NetBeans 6.1 installed with Java CAPS so I thought I would change the default editor from emacs to NetBeans. So, I googled and found it.

Change or Set the Greasemonkey Script Editor in Firefox :: the How-To Geek

  1. For Windows, use "nb.exe". For example, "d:\\JavaCAPS6\\netbeans\\bin\\nb.exe"
  2. For UNIXen, use "netbeans". For example, "/opt/JavaCAPS6/netbeans/bin/netbeans"
Don't worry. If there's running NetBeans, Greasemonkey \*.js file will be opened in existing instance.
