If you’re a customer of NAB (formerly known as National Australia Bank), you’ll no doubt have found the way its internet banking opens up in a new, full-screen window — even if you have a 30″ monitor.
In the office, this is particularly annoying because it makes it difficult to discreetly check your bank balance without giving everyone around you a “full screen view” of your finances.
A looooong time ago my old friend Simon Wright (proprietor of the excellent Whirlpool.net.au online community) wrote a script to stop this annoying full screen NAB internet banking behaviour.
It’s a “userscript” that slightly modifies the code on the NAB homepage to stop this annoying pop-up behaviour. To use it, you have to install a plug-in in your browser — Greasemonkey on Firefox or GreaseKit on Safari. Chrome has the capability built in already.
To install the script in Firefox:
1. Install the Greasemonkey for Firefox plugin
2. Restart Firefox (File > Quit) then reopen it
3. Click on this link to download Simon’s NAB Internet Banking no-fullscreen UserScript
4. Click the “install” button that comes up.
5. Enjoy your NAB internet banking without the stupid 90s full-screen pop-up window!
To install the script in Safari:
1. Install Ninjakit for Safari (download the extension file, then double click it in the downloads list to open and install it)
2. Click on this link to download Simon’s NAB Internet Banking no-fullscreen UserScript [currently I can’t find a way to actually install the script as of Safari 5.1.5… waiting for the developer of Ninjakit to release an update.)
To install the script in Chrome:
1. Go into Chrome
2. Click on this link to download Simon’s NAB Internet Banking no-fullscreen UserScript
3. Click the “add” button that comes up.
4. Enjoy your NAB internet banking without the stupid 90s full-screen pop-up window!
