Skipping WebAuth Confirmation Screen

At my employer Oxford University we use Stanford WebAuth for web based Single Sign On (SSO). One of my particular problems with the current setup at Oxford is that for each service you sign into you have to confirm that you wish to signon using your credentials to the site. At Oxford this is known as the green tick page. Thanks to the wonderfull Firefox plugin called greasemonkey I can have some JavaScript run when I visit the green tick page to automatically follow the link. The result is a greasemonkey script that means I don't have to click on the link. I've put the script up for anyone else who might find it useful. WebAuth Tick Jumper to use it you should already have greasemonkey installed.
