Firefox: Annoying Pop-Up That Screws Up Scripts


Recommended Posts

Every time I want to leave a page it give me this pop-up saying: 
"This page asks you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved"
Than than ask me to confirm this by clicking: "leave page" button
I have tried to search for solutions on Firefox help forums and they say 
its not the fault of Firefox but it is the the webpage that is doing this.
Some say it is possible to click the "leave page" button with help of Greacemonkey (javascript based)
I know Greacemonkey very well and I have no problem using it,
but the thing is that I dont know what the information/source of the "leave page" button on the pop-up screen is
I have tried to use the Inspector tool but it doesnt work on pop-up screens
so my question is how can I see the source/info of the pop-up window so I can click this button with help of Greacemonkey.

The webpage is: http://tweepi.com

"This page asks you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved"

But i heard its not only tweepi but allot other website have the same problem

The website does not allow me to view the page source when the pop-up shows up

FWIW, _FFOpenURL performs a _FFLoadWait by default.

I would try something like this:

_FFOpenURL("http://tweepi.com/tools/flush#500") ; no problem

_FFOpenURL("http://tweepi.com/tools/follow_by_followers#0", False) 
_FFDialogWait("confirm", "", "ok") ; may need to change text to something else that matches

this may work if I could fill in the correct text, but how do i know the right text of the _FFdialogwait() 

because I cant use the inspector tool  from firefox on the pop-up

the pop-up is only show the text:

Deze pagina vraagt te bevestigen dat u deze wilt verlaten - gegevens die u hebt ingevoerd worden mogelijk niet opgeslagen (dutch)

This page asks you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved (translation)

2 buttons:

Pagina verlaten(translation: leaving page)


Op de pagina blijven (translation: stay on page)
