You need to add them in lowercase. Sorry I'll fix that bug (and I'll fix the other bug with the removing function)
EDIT: I fixed it so you can put them in any case you want. It will work now.

Not sure this is working. Thought I'd try it on the main page here, added "Travian" and "Ikariam" to its filter... no changes.

Use something like this:

function delNode(targetNode) {	
  if (targetNode) return targetNode.parentNode.removeChild(targetNode);
  return null;

HTMLElement in a Greasemonkey script is wrapped in an XPCNativeWrapper, so it won't let you add methods to its prototype. The "Element" in your code isn't a special object, it's a normal variable (an empty anonymous function after the assignment)

Error: HTMLElement.prototype is undefined but I
fixed it anyways.

Although I can't use it on previousSibling...
Error: X.previousSibling.previousSibling.delete is not a function
Or this weirdly...
Error: X.delete is not a function

thats strange... it should work in firefox 3.0.3


HTMLElement.prototype.delete=function() {

Error: Element.prototype is undefined
Line: 28

but I fixed it with
if (!Element.prototype) {
Element = function() {};

Not really going to read through it too much, but this might help (and in future scripts too):

Element.prototype.delete=function() {

So that once you have an element, e.g. X.parentNode.parentNode, you can simply call:


to get rid of it.
