Requested here: http://www.greasespot.net/2013/01/greasemonkey-16-release.html?showComment=1357839127224#c6167452262578744504
A simple text editor, built into Firefox. Perhaps something built on that, perhaps make it the default.
Make Scratchpad the default user script editor.
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.
Could you please visit #1708 and elaborate on what "manually opening a script in Scratchpad" means? What are the steps to do that?
Ok, #1708 (comment)
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?
