  1. To Install Any (or all) Skin..
    1. Install Firefox
    2. Install GreaseMonkey (U’ll need to restart firefox if u r installing GreaseMonkey for d first time)
    3. Install Any or All skin(s).

    For Advance Users:
    This Skins are just GreaseMonkey scripts. So they will work with GreaseMonkey only n GreaseMonkey is firefox extension so in order to use these skins u need to have firefox & greasemonkey both!!!

  2. ANSWERS:
    1. Just refresh the tab(s) to see the chages. No need to restart anything after installing any GreaseMonkey script. (Please note, installation of Greasemonkey itself requires restarting firefox)

    2. To switch between themes:
    From tools menu, select “MANAGE USER SCRIPTS” option.
    A Window will pop-up listing all GreaseMonkey scripts installed. Please note installing a script in different than enabling a script.
    So to select particular theme, ENABLE appropriate script (n disable others).
    To GET BLUE BACKGROUND BACK, disable all “theme” scripts. (Note, this will not uninstall scripts from ur system).

    No. Others will not see any changes in ur profie/background. This is local effect limited to ur browser. Even u can’t see changes, if u login from another browser or another PC.

  9. To: ANUSHUL
    No bro, pictures are true. Actually Orkut code modified recently. So some effects are not properly visible.

    1. @Alpesh
      No Alpesh. The changes are local and visible to you only that’s too from same browswer.
      If you open your profile in IE or opera you will come to know that no changes have been made anywhere.

  18. what do u mean by the script will not be removed from the system
    how to removie it from the system and if i remove greasemonkey or firfox will the script be removied

    1. @Maddy
      There is a difference between disabling and uninstalling a script.
      If you want to remove script from system, you must uninstall the script.
      Details about procedure are here.
