I am a Firefox user but have never really gotten into customizing it with add-ons. That changed a couple days ago, when I came up with a punk hack that I wanted to enable on Google search result pages.
I started to look at Firefox add-ons that might already perform my hack... which would kind of ruin the fun of implementing it... or help me implement it.
One of the add-ons that I found was Greasemonkey. It doesn't perform my hack, but it has allowed lots of people to implement customizations of web-pages that are similar to what I want to do.
I installed it and started to look for scripts that would teach me how to monkey-around. I found this script by Jesse Glick that modifies the page title for Issuezilla entries. Direct link to Jesse's actual script. If you have Greasemonkey installed clicking the link to Jesse's script will ask you if you would like to install it.
I read through the script and took it for a testdrive... and I liked it. Then I remembered that the NetBeans Issuezilla is hosted by the same folks that host the Issue Tracker for the GlassFish community. So, I decided to try an experiment.
I opened the Greasemonkey Manage User Scripts... dialog and saw this.
I used the Add... button to update the Included Pages list to look like this.
I went to Java.net and logged in and went to look for some GlassFish issues that I need to VERIFY. I have been very lazy about that...
When I clicked on a link to see the details on an issue, this is what my Window title looked like.
Then, I figured I would share this with folks in the GlassFish community.
And now, I am done
