    So... using pretty much a 'ported' firefox extension: AutoPatch Works.

    Scrolling through my favorite threads like the monthly Wallpaper threads, and "Post your Setup" threads has been a breeze!

    so much fun!!

    I definitely recommend you guys to try it out - makes MR's super long threads worth reading!


    What other Chrome Extensions have you guys checked out that work wonders for the vbulliten system?? i know the goo.gl plug in has ruled for me!

    Thanks for the tip. I haven't used it in FF but I just installed it on Chrome.

    Wish there was an extension that would preview the first couple lines of a thread as you scrolled over the thread title..

    Same here. I have a vbulletin website and I have that ext on mine (if I'm understanding you correctly- when you hover your mouse over a thread title, it gives you the first few lines) and it's really helpful.

    I dont know... maybe if you hold down a function key and then do that... I could find that irritating if it was set to auto show.

    Amen to that. I think it's pretty much a basic feature of vBulletin anyway? I once asked a mod if they could enable it on MR but never got an answer. :(

    It has been discussed and answered here frequently in the Site and Feedback Forum
    It does put a strain on the servers I believe

    Here is one such thread

    and Doctor Q's answer
