Is it possible to remove thread titles from the title bar in firefox/IE?
I'm hoping to continue participating in some of my more "mature" private forums while at work yet still retain my job. This is challenging when certain threads have titles with explicit sexual imagery or politically incorrect colloquialisms.
I use a free hosting site to hold my scripts and I guess you get what you pay for as the damn thing is down (again).
If you have patience then try this link -
eventually there will be a script there that does what you want.
If you're in a hurry then try this -
Save the following as a file called reset_title.user.js
Firefox : File -> Open File & install the script.
Go to the 'My Games' page and the game id's should now be clickable. You'll get a new window with the analysis board.

Alter the title of a thread (boss safety)
var titleBit = document.evaluate("id('docbody_id'😉/table/tbody/tr/td",
document, null, XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE, null);
"<table border=\"0\"><tbody><tr><td align=\"center\">Set Title :</td>" +
"<td align=\"center\"> </td><td align=\"center\">" +
"<input type=\"text\" size=\"100\" maxlength=\"100\" id=\"gm_newTitle\">" +
var gm_newTitle = document.getElementById("gm_newTitle" ) ;
gm_newTitle.value = document.title;
document.title = gm_newTitle.value;

This should work on all the RHP pages (not just the forums) - you'll get a little text box at the top right that will have the text of the page title in it. Overtype this with whatever you want & get the title of the page to update by tabbing out of the text field.
Note - for those without the GreaseMonkey magic -
