Tweaking Issue Tracker Pages with Greasemonkey

What's your opinion of GlassFish Issue #1047? Oh, you haven't memorized all of our Issue Tracker entries? So an ID number with no other context is pretty meaningless?

Well, you're probably not alone there. Vince's latest blog entry shows how to use Greasemonkey to customize how Firefox displays the Java.net Issue Tracker pages for GlassFish. So instead of a not-so-helpful title like "glassfish: Issue 1047," you can get one which includes the issue summary, like "#1047: version -verbose isn't verbose enough."
