Ebay Thumbnails Greasemonkey

Ebay is very broken. I use the middle mouse button to open links in a new tabs, and I use that feature a lot in ebay. However, if you try this on a thumbnail image, you will find that it doesn't work!

Greasemonkey to the rescue! I've replaced the broken links, so that they work correctly (just as the item's description do).

console.debug( "begin greasemonkey script ebay_thumbnail_fix" );

{
  var changedATags = [];
  var aTags = document.getElementsByTagName( "a" );
  
	
  for ( var i = 0; i < aTags.length; i ++ ) {
    aTag = aTags[ i ];
    if (aTag.className == "img") {
      var parent = aTag.parentNode.parentNode;
      var otherATags = parent.getElementsByTagName( "a" );

      for ( var j = 0; j < otherATags.length; j ++ ) {
        var otherATag = otherATags[j];
        if ( otherATag.className == "vip" ) {
          aTag.href = otherATag.href;
          changedATags[ changedATags.length ] = aTag
        }
      }
    }
  }   

  // alert( "Replaced " + changedATags.length );

  // Add greasemonkey logos to the changed thumbnails

  var logo = '<div style="position:absolute; right: 0"><a href="http://nickthecoder.co.uk/pinkwino/view/Ebay+Thumbnail+Greasemonkey" title="Greasemonkey Extension"><img src="http://nickthecoder.co.uk/pinkwino/media/greasemonkey.png" alt="gm"/></a></div>';
