I'm a new convert to Greasemonkey and firefox and love them both! But I'm amazed that when I log in to my PC at home, the scripts I downloaded at work aren't there!

Is there anyway to sync scripts across from machine to machine? (preferably as simply as possible!)

You could use Dropbox or any other sync program to sync the userscripts folder.

I'm still hoping they implement the userscripts in Firefox Sync.

It isn't quite as simple as that though is it? Don't you have to set up the browser to pick up from your dropbox?? I've no idea how I'd go about that! Any clues?

I would be nervous to point Dropbox at a folder in my Firefox profile...

I made an issue about this on GreaseMonkey github: https://github.com/greasemonkey/greasemonkey/issues/1573

If you are using linux or Mac, fire up a terminal and:

ln -s ~/Dropbox/userscripts ~/.mozilla/path/to/gm_scripts

Dropbox is pretty secure, just make sure you don't put things in your public folder.
