So, how many of you do hate the dialog below?
Good news – there is a fix! (or well, a hack around it ;)
Before showing the fix, you can vote & give your opinion here:
Install the fix as a bookmarklet
So, next time you see a MOS page expired in one of your many open browser tabs, you just click on the C-MOS bookmarklet in the bookmarks bar (instead of the OK button) and the grayed out dialog box disappears – without trying to reload the whole page (and failing). So you’ll still be able to read, copy and scroll the content.
Note 1: I didn’t try to prevent this (client-side) expiration from happening as you might still want to maintain your web session with MOS servers by clicking OK in the dialog.
Note 3: As I updated the bookmarklet to support IE too, the new code is a bit different. The old code, for those who are interested, is here:
If you wonder why I picked such a name C-MOS for this little script, just pronounce it and you’ll see ;-)
