Skip to comments.Firefox/Chrome Users: Get FR Tree View for Nested Threads on FR!
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:

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.
I tried installing grease monkey I use Chrome it told me I needed to use foxfire. Am I doing something wrong???
Marking for later when there is more information
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.

Thank you, it’s done. Don’t know if it’s working though. Where do I go what do I do...lol
Do I have to shut down my web browser to get it working???
Trying to use this with Chrome, I installed the extension but I am not seeing the Treeview button...
Cool! Working as advertised. Thanks
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.
Same here as a Chrome user - no change.
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.
aaaah...that could be it. I am using an earlier version. I will update and get back to you
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:
This is cool!!! Thanks for posting!
Updates indicate it is ;latest version.
Bump for home
BTTT! Many thanks!
So I downloaded and installed Chrome and got the add-on. Nothing. Nada. Just the regular FR with no extra buttons.
Any significant changes visually or functionally with Beta version? I like the current, latest version 188.8.131.525 (42898)
PUDDY: High-five...Dont leave me hangin
ELAINE: Youre a salesman now - and the high-five is.. its very grease monkey.
PUDDY: What did I tell you about that?
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!
Try upgrading to the latest Chrome Beta:
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!
bump for home
Thanks for the confirmation! I wasn't sure if that was the issue or not.
Updated to the BETA version and it works great! Good stuff man...
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!
Not working with FF 3.6.3 running on Vista. < |:(~
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?
Mine worked after upgrading to chrome beta.
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?
Self-Ping for later!
It doesn't work in my Chrome either. Works on Firefox. But to me, the tree view is the most important part :)
It’s not working on mine either. ??????
Cool! Not fond of the colors but love tree view.
On my computer, the script is located in the following folder:
That's Win7 (and probably Vista configuration). On XP, it might be in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Mozilla\ etc....
Anybody doing this with Linux...Ubuntu or otherwise?
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...
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.
