Firefox/Chrome Users: Get FR Tree View for Nested Threads on FR!
cynwoody ^

Posted on 04/09/2010 7:15:31 AM PDT by Dan Nunn

Some of you may know about this gem, but I want to make sure every Firefox and Chrome user knows about the beauty of FR Tree View.

I'm not taking credit for it, I don't know which FReeper wrote the software. But it's amazing! It makes following long, nested threads much easier. See a screen shot here:

Firefox users will need to install the Greasemonkey add-on. Google Chrome users may install it just by clicking the link.

Get it here: and click the "click here to install FRTV" link.

Internet Explorer users may be able to get it to work using the IE7Pro addon, but I haven't tested it to vouch for it.

You don’t need to install Greasemonkey on Chrome. Chrome has all of Greasemonkey’s functionality built-in. You can skip that step and go right to the installation of FR Tree View.

Good question, I didn't mention that!

At the top of every FR thread, you should see two new buttons.

View as Tree and Poster Report

Click View as Tree to engage FR Tree View for that thread.

You may have to use the latest (or even a beta) version of Google Chrome.

What is your version? If you click the wrench icon, click About Google Chrome, you will find your version.

Mine is 5.0.342.8 beta.

Ah the version might be an issue. I do believe I am using the BETA version of Chrome.

If you like this script and want to install it on Chrome, you may need to upgrade to the Beta version here:

So I downloaded and installed Chrome and got the add-on. Nothing. Nada. Just the regular FR with no extra buttons.

Any hints?

I’ve been running it for a while, I don’t notice any changes. If it’s faster, I don’t notice it. It doesn’t crash any more or less (Scottrade still gives me trouble, as it does in IE as well).

So, it can’t hurt, and you can always revert!

Chrome users, upgrade to the beta for this to work

I tried it with two different computers running the latest non-beta, and it didn't work. Upgraded to the beta and it works great!

HEY EVERYONE...here’s how it worked for me.

First, get Chrome Beta. Then download the tree veiw extension. Then CLOSE THE BROWSER so the Beta version will activate, THEN when you open the Tree View, it’ll work!

Works for me and it looks great!

Using Firefox. Latest version of Grease Monkey is installed. Clicked on the link to install the FR thingy. Nothing happens. Tried several times.

Is there a way to manually install it after downloading the script to the computer?.....In which folder within Firefox should the script reside?

Regards.....

HOWEVER....

The Poster Report will not work for me. The bar on the bottom of the page says it generated, but it isn’t visible anywhere. Tried both using the button AND the keyboard shortcut.

That’s odd. The script works on my install of FF 3.6.3 running on Windows 7 (so it should work on Vista too).

Anyone else have any suggestions or success with FF 3.6.3?

The Poster Report will not work for me.

It doesn't work in my Chrome either. Works on Firefox. But to me, the tree view is the most important part :)

In which folder within Firefox should the script reside?

On my computer, the script is located in the following folder:

C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\y13lb10n.default\gm_scripts\fr_tree_viewer

That's Win7 (and probably Vista configuration). On XP, it might be in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Mozilla\ etc....

I believe that you do need to restart Firefox,...I just did that after Installing Grease monkey and the script.

Dan I didn't see anything after installing the script...just did a complete System Restart...leaving Firefox up and when the System came up it all happened....

I am running Linux mint which is build on Ubuntu...

Looking good.....

I restarted chrome and it's still not working. Not sure why.

I'd love to try running linux, just to chicken to try it on my only computer. If we ever get another computer, I'll try it out on the old one. I use to play around with one of windows alternatives several years ago. It was freeware, can't for the life of me remember what it was called.
