  • Works again, thank you! Additional suggestion: add https to the include list (HTTPS mostly works for non-meta sites these days). Commented Aug 11, 2014 at 9:39
  • The comment draft still remains behind forever, even after posting it and after blanking the input box. Have you been able to look into this? Commented Aug 11, 2014 at 9:41
  • Seemed to work for me, after I edited all the http:// links to change them to https://. Without that, I think the userscript just does not get to run :-). (I'm using TamperMonkey on Firefox, in case it matters).
