On userscripts.org site, I suggest you ...

Make the "Install" button use HTTPS finally

GreaseMonkey requires the script to be _installed_ using HTTPS, otherwise the updating function is disabled.

Unlike Scriptish which only requires setting of @downloadURL and @updateURL, GreaseMonkey ignores @downloadURL and has its own memory of where the script was installed from.

If a script was installed from userscripts.org, GreaseMonkey will grey out the "Check for updates" option. If I copy the same URL that's under the "Install" button, but replace "http://" with "https://", the same script will now have updating enabled (both manual and automatic).

On userscripts.org in the installtion instructions, you're still suggesting using GreaseMonkey and no mention of Scriptish. I'm amazed why to this day, you're intentionally disabling GM's updating facilities.

And on this very page, the most voted "feature" (which is planned?) is auto-updater for scripts!

Please, switch the Install button to HTTPS. Many thanks in advance.
