UserScripts (Tampermonkey, Greasemonkey etc) on Sidebar Extensions

  • I would like to run my userscripts on sidebar messengers (whatsapp, twitter, messenger).

    Tampermonkey can run my scripts in the current tab but not on the left sidebar messengers.

    Is there a solution for this?

    This is not only limited with Tampermonkey as well. Other extensions are also not running in those sidebar messengers.

  • I join the topic.
    Tampermonkey scripts work for me like this:
    messenger - only browser
    whatsapp - only browser
    instagram - sidebar and browser

  • @depitrox which script are you using for instagram? may be I can add a modification for other scripts too.

  • @baturkacamak I created a simply script for getting images from posts.
    Script is not complicated. it's simply. Is the same like you adding it for main window on browser.

    // ==UserScript==
    // @name         IG download IMG & VID
    // @namespace    http://tampermonkey.net/
    // @version      0.1
    // @description  Get the instagram images & movie from everywhere.
    // @author       You
    // @match        https://www.instagram.com/*
    // @grant        none
    // ==/UserScript==
    console.log('"IG download IMG & VID" get started!');
    document.addEventListener('contextmenu',function(x){
    //etc
    });
    
    

    How you see, it's simple script. Generally extension like Darkreader(from chrome store) or others extensions, also working on sidebar instagram. Whatsapp and Messenger only doesn't work. But 😃 . Sometimes messenger is black, which means, that darkreader work on messenger (he manages to break through). But I repeat. Only occasionally when browser (system) is loaded.
    Recently I really thought the tamper was working in the sidebar, and that was just the "bug" I wrote about. 😁

    PS: Twitter also works.

    Greetings.
