Uninstalling Greasemonkey Scripts [Tutorial]

Postby chipv on Wed Dec 31, 2008 9:34 am

Greasemonkey scripts can save data for reuse. Uninstallation can keep your saved data or erase it.

There are two type of uninstallation:

1. Soft Uninstall
2. Clean uninstall

A soft uninstall only removes the script from your list of scripts so it won't run on any pages.
A clean uninstall also removes the saved data (associated preferences) that go with the script.

In Firefox window go to Tools->Greasemonkey->Manage User Scripts like this:

Click on Manage User Script and you will see a box like this:

Click on the script you want to remove in the left column.
Click on Uninstall.

Clean Uninstall
Click on the script you want to remove in the left column.
Check the Also uninstall Associated preferences box at the bottom.
Click on Uninstall.

Not much, this was valid for greasemonkey 0.8.*, but 0.9.* is different. If you select a script or right-click a script, do you have the possibility of uninstalling the script?
(I am at FF4 now, there the buttons are at script-bars, but I guess you're at ff3).

Yes, you can uninstall it no problem, but there is no option for "also uninstall associated" as far as I can tell.

Nope, they assume you want to remove those automatically since 0.9, so there's no choice any more (I had to look that up btw, didn't notice it before).
