Mark Pilgrim's article, Avoid Common Pitfalls in Greasemonkey, is an indispensable reference for Greasemonkey script authors. It describes ten different "pitfalls" that many script authors fall into, both things that those already familiar with Javascript might expect to work (but do not) and other changes/limitations of the Greasemonkey script environment. Readers will note the common theme of XPCNativeWrappers and their limitations.

It covers:

  • Event Handlers
  • Named Forms and Form Elements
  • Custom Properties
  • Iterating Collections
  • scrollIntoView
  • location
  • Calling Remote Page Scripts
  • watch
  • style
