    the script I want isn't found on userscripts.org but it is on the web, I had this one before i had to reinstall firefox. ugoira to gif. I went to the page I found with the script with firefox, and nothing asked me if I want to install the script. Lot's of code on the screen but nothing happens. I downloaded the zip file and all it does is open in note pad.

    Wow! You mean you can download and install stuff in Windows? When I saw this instructable, I thought you were going to demonstrate actually creating functional Javascript scripts for use with GreaseMonkey.

    Question: Any clue how to remove/replace characters from a URL in whatever language greasemonkey operates on (I think it's javascript)?

    Javascript is stored as text just like html files. Open the script with any text editor and look for URLs to edit. They may be stored as variables or used directly. Just look for the tell-tale 'http://'
