Few days after writing the post “Write Orkut scraps in Indian languages” using Greasemonkey script, Google has introduced that feature and now it is inbuilt in Orkut. Now, I will show you the way to embed Yahoo emoticons into your Orkut scraps. A little emoticon can express your feeling much better than words.
For this, we need, as usual, Firefox, GreaseMonkey extension for Firefox, and Yahoo Emoticons User Script.
Read my previous post about installing GreaseMonkey in Firefox. If you know how to install an extension in Firefox, just click here and install GreaseMonkey. Restart the Firefox and click here to get the user script, which GreaseMonkey instantly recognizes and comes up with a window asking for confirmation. Click “Install” and you are done. Now go to your scrapbook and you will see Yahoo and MSN emoticons appearing below the scrap box. Whenever you need an emoticon to be attached to the scrap, just click on the appropriate icon and a link will be inserted into your scrap that turns into an emoticon when it is posted. Enjoy!!!
Update: December 7, 2010
Script is not working anymore on the new version of Orkut. Sorry guys!
Update: May 30, 2008
Modified the script to work for orkut.co.in.
Update: July 17, 2009
PhotoBucket account was inactive and showing up “inactive msg blocks” in place of emoticons. Moved all emoticons to ImageShack for better service.
Update: September 6, 2009
Orkut changed the scrap book path. Modified the script to work with the new path.
after installing greasemonkey fing ma mozilla stops workin
If it does not work, do a fresh install. Mozilla just released a new version of Firefox.

Try this and see if it works: Press the control button on your keyboard and scroll the scroll button on your mouse back to decrease or forward to increase the size of the font.
