Nope, apparently it has nothing to do with being a moderator. I logged out, and then logged back in again - and now it works on Firefox and on Chrome 47.
Howe do I make it work on Safari and Microsoft Edge & Internet Explorer?

I think maybe it isn't set up to work on the moderator version of Mudcat. I logged out, and now it works on Firefox.
This is pretty slick, Dave!

Hi, Dave -
I installed the extension on the current version of Google Chrome, Version 47.0.2526.111 m. So far, I don't notice it doing anything.

Having read the description I think it doesn't.

Do you have something (batch file maybe)to put the mudcat cookie back in firefox every time you click on Mudcat url? I'm set up to delete everything on browser exit, and then run ccleaner at boot.

Not Available for FireFox 34

The reason I used FireFox 34.05 is because versions since about 38 (maybe 40) cannot be used to debug my JavaScript. I use timeOut and de-bugger breakpoints cannot be set, it halts on timeOut instead. Go figure. I also have, currently, FF 43 which I use to verify that my code can work on the latest versions. Though if it ever fails, I am clueless on how to debug for the latest iterations. Short of being a manual timer myself.

I test on Chrome 31 & 40, Opera 12 & 28 Safari 5 and IE 11 plus a few rarer IE clones like Maxthon. I like to be backward compatible as poss, even to providing a basic system for non-JavaScript users. Often this means foregoing some niceties. I knew people who up to last year (and maybe still) run IE8.

Over the past couple of years I've written several userscripts and bookmarklets for browsing Mudcat. I've now packaged them as a browser addon to make them easier to use, especially on a tablet. They're for Firefox and Chrome.
It adds these features to the threadlist and thread pages:
1. Identifies threads posted to since last visit.
2. Scrolls to the first new post in a thread.
3. Remembers a guest user name, and preselects preview.
4. Adds quoting and linking buttons below the input area.
5. Saves and recovers text in case the post fails to 'stick'.

Feedback welcome, especially for the chrome extension. Any problems installing it?
If anyone is using the original userscripts, don't run both!
