A simple text editor, built into Firefox. Perhaps something built on that, perhaps make it the default.

One issue (just tried GM 1.8 beta 2) :
when you rightclick to edit a script.
it opens in Scratchpad,
with the cursor being at the last character of the script.

That's how Scratchpad works. Perhaps submit an RFE to Mozilla?

But, try it yourself:
when manually opening a script in Scratchpad,
and also, in Scriptish, which also uses Scratchpad as default editor,
when you click to edit a script
cursor is at the first character of the script.

Darkred:

Could you please visit #1708 and elaborate on what "manually opening a script in Scratchpad" means? What are the steps to do that?

Since this feature was added, I can no longer change the editor from scratchpad to something else in the gui dialog. Can you please fix this since I don't want Scratchpad as the editor.

Sorry, I should elaborate on my last comment. Actually, the editor is configurable, where I already configured it but when I booted my machine today, it seems it forgot the setting meaning extensions.greasemonkey.editor disappeared. I'm not sure if this happened as a result of rebooting or just closing and opening firefox. I will have to investigate more.

Tools > Greasemonkey > Greasemonkey Options... > Browse For Editor Program

What happens when you click that? Does something appear in the error console?
