Click Trap Remover: Copy Request Work Around

Share:

UPDATE: Facebook made some changes so this version doesn't work when games are launched from your Facebook page. The new version plus installation instructions which bypass the Chrome Web Store message, go here.

In the post below this one, I told you about a change Facebook made to stop us from copying our game requests [1]. Brandon Venery has created an AddOn (Extension) which will allow us to bypass the code that blocks copying. It’s easy to install and you don’t need to do anything special once it’s enabled. To start using it now, follow the instructions below.
1. Click on the link below.

2. If you are a Fire Fox user, you will have to have Greasemonkey or something similar activated. Go here for detailed instructions how to do that.
copy8
3. Click continue in Chrome or Install in FireFox.
copy9
copy13
4. wait for confirmation that the Extension or AddOn was installed and you are done.
copy11copy12
5. The dotted outline will still appear on your requests but you can now copy them as you did in the past.

even without the extension i was able to copy earlier.... just click outside of the dotted box and highlight... it will highlight the entire box :)

i was able to copy earlier without the extension... just click and drag to highlight outside the dotted box and it will highlight the entire box... i have an older laptop and it doesnt like some extensions :)

Damn this game would be impossible without you, Brandon. Another great job!

Thank you!!!

i have chrome beta and it wouldn't let me install it because it isn't from the chrome apps store
they gave this info on how to bypass that though

We recommend you only add extensions from other websites that you trust. In Chrome, you can follow these steps to add the extension:

Download the extension file from the website and save it to your computer.
Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
Select Tools > Extensions.
Locate the extension file on your computer and drag the file onto the Extensions page.
Review the list of permissions in the dialog that appears. If you would like to proceed, click Install.

Great, now chrome extensions, apps & scripts can only be added from the Chrome Web Store. WTH....

Anonymous said...

yep which is most imporrtant part..copying ices isn't really a huge deal,its the links that matter...

Aaron Ols said...

I added the plug in to firefox with greasemonkey, it did not work properly so I deleted it. I tried to re-add it but when I click on the link a new window pops up with a copy of the script. Is there anything that I can do to fix this?

Anonymous said...

I have firefox. I have downloaded greasemonkey, and sharing links still does not work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a little late on this browser.. I get this when clicking on the script install link:

Error installing user script: Error: Pattern could not be parsed: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x804b000a (NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI) [nsIIOService.newURI]" nsresult: "0x804b000a (NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI)" location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/NetUtil.jsm :: NetUtil_newURI :: line 222" data: no]

I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled GreaseMonkey and the extension. Instead of restoring clickable links, the fix makes FarmVille unloadable on my Windows 7 machine. I intend to try again, though. (Darned Facebook! Why do they care if we copy the links, anyway?)

Many thanks - works like a charm!

I use mozille firefox and I installed greasemonkey ... it is active but does not work.
I have to work manually by clicking on item analyzes and then click delete node.
In this way appears to copy link.
But why does not work automatically?

Anonymous said...

Is there any way to make this work with IE? Some of the people in our AOC guild use IE and it would help if it works there as well. I tried it and this is what IE had to say.

Microsoft JScript runtime error

Darryl Eaton said...

Right-click on the file you posted and "Save file as" or "Save link as"
to your desktop first for ease of finding it and then click on wrench, tools, extensions.
Then when extensions folder is open drag the file you downloaded to your desktop into the extension folder.

Trolling is not welcomed. If you don't have something constructive to add, go back under your bridge.

I can get this installed in Chrome, but not in Firefox. In Firefox I get "This add-on could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt." It does start to install then quickly goes to the corrupt statement.

thanks soooo much you rock

Terise said...

So I had been using this extension for awhile on Google Chrome - and thank you so much for making it :) But recently I have had to uninstall it because it seems to be creating issues with my game play. Game play becomes very choppy and my mouse hard to control and point on the screen. Any idea why and what I can do to fix it? I don't know why FB cares who we share with or why they want to make it difficult for us, but I very much appreciate you writing this extension and I really want to keep using it...Thanks!

i had to reinstall chrome and lost it. it now says i can only get it from the web store and it's not there

What do you need to do if your using explorer?

Seems it has been nerfed by Zynga or Facebook.

HELP,, my chrome & FF r not working (i tried uninstalling & reinstalling 2 times) so now am using Rockmelt...do u have anything for it???

majestyx said...

You will now have to download it, then find where it's stored on your computer. Open the extensions page (click the wrench in the upper right), then drag the file onto the extensions page and install as your would normally.

Has the short link maker been broken by the recent FB changes, or MW's removal of Las Vegas? I can't get it to work on either of my machines anymore in FF.
