I am not a "script guy" but i think we can get great use of your scrip.
My question is: Is there a way to hide the counter in the upper left corner ?

I have another question...
I want to use the script on our Navision.
If the user have levt NAV while they have clicked deep into something, NAV says that you have to close whatever you have clicked into - and not close NAV. That is fine for me.
But the script keeps running, and every second a window will appear telling that something is open and working.
I just want that message to appear 1 time, and not every second.
Every second leaves thousands of messages i.e. if the user is in a meeting
