Is there a wiki, maillist, etc, for greasemonkey ?

Hi. I only just started using greasemonkey and made a mistake right away.

But I can't find any help facility, except for a book from 2005.

Can anyone tell me of a help facility?

Here's my mistake, in case you can tell me the answer:

Writing my first script I stupidly selected ~/.emacs as editor, which of course is not how to set emacs. But now greasemonkey does nothing when I try to edit. It doesn't offer the choose dialog again. I can't figure out how to reset this or how to upload a script directly.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but gm seems to retain preferences.

(Firefox 3.0.8 on Ubuntu 8.04)

Thanks! Mak

Thanks farslayer. I did look at the addon page; I don't know how I missed this.

(Not having a good day.)

Thanks again.
