Can you add Logging of scriplet injections? As far as I can tell, that's the only type of rule that's not already logged.

I decided to take a stab at adding this yesterday, and thankfully got some results quickly. I then polished it today and now have a satisfactory solution for my limited use of injectors -- one each at a few sites., warn)
is the rule shown here:


Note the >> indicator (opposite of redirect).

This is the diff for all of my additions.

The TODOs for a full, general solution are in the diff.

Final thought: the retrieveUserScripts function may not be the best place to call the logging function, as shown below. But scriplet injectors are a special class of rule, and how best to do it is up to gorhill or somebody else with a deeper knowledge of it.


The console log and logger capture show that going to thefreedictionary homepage results in 4 invocations of retrieveUserScripts. Then typing "inject" and going to that page results in just 1 invocation of the function.

Thanks for the fix. Now it's easy to observe scriptlet injections and I have a question, triggered by uBlockOrigin/uAssets@43eb464
Is $badfilter supposed to work with script:inject filters? Looks like it works only for the exact string where it's placed. If the same script:inject exists somewhere without $badfilter (e.g. uAssets or the same My filters), then it's not discarded and working.

badfilter is only for network filters.

##script:inject is parsed as a cosmetic filter, so if you want to cancel it, just use the exception filter syntax:


The exception syntax #@# for cosmetic filters is equivalent of badfilter for network filters.

Is the scriptlet filter for causing issues?

Didn't saw edit. Not now, but back then the first version of filter for 4chan (linked above) broke Violentmonkey there, as you remember. So I thought it would be useful to know how to disable specific scriptlet filter if some problems occur in the future, since now injections would be logged properly.
