if your extensions are still in xpi form, use winrar to extract them to a folder in that name, new firefox browsers does not require extracting the xpi file, but doing it on-the-fly. once extracted, you can remove the xpi files. the folders will be used instead.

browse the chrome folder.

use winrar and extract greasemonkey.jar into a folder \greasemonkey\

change line 13 to:

var gTotalDelay = new GM_PrefManager().getValue(‘installDelay’, 1);



change line 130 (in the startTimer method) to:

gTimer = window.setInterval(onInterval, 10);


save the file.


go up one level,

use winzip to compress content,locate,skin
