This user script has been tested on Mozilla Firefox 27 with GreaseMonkey. It should work on any browser with a compatible user script API, including Google Chrome, Opera and Safari.

Known issues

The script tries to inject the confirmation dialog handler every time a new review task is loaded, but for some (currently unknown) reason, this doesn't always work. As a safety measure, it also checks twice a second to see if a new task has been loaded, and, if so, adds the handler.

Should both of these methods fail for some reason, the "Approve" button will be shown with red text and border to warn you that clicking it will approve the edit without confirmation. Moving the mouse over the button should trigger a second safety measure that will inject the handler and remove the warning color.
