And it's still broken. :-)

I just got around to using your updated version instead of my hackery, and noticed it didn't work. Here's a fix:

--- pmchat.html.old 2004-12-19 20:12:15.000000000 -0500 +++ pmchat.html 2004-12-19 20:07:59.000000000 -0500 @@ -15,7 +15,7 @@ var record = str.split( /\s*;\s*/ ); for( var i = 0; i < record.length; ++i ) { var kv = record[ i ].split( /=/ ); - this.data[ decodeURIComponent( kv[ 0 ] ) ] = d +ecodeURIComponent( kv[ 1 ] ); + this.data[ decodeURIComponent( kv[ 0 ].replace +(/%25/g, '%') ) ] = decodeURIComponent( kv[ 1 ].replace(/%25/g, '%') +); } }, get: function( key ) {
PM seems to double-encode or something -- at the least, percents (%) are replaced with %25 in the already URL encoded string. It doesn't seem to care if you do the reverse or not when re-encoding it.

    There are more doubly encoded characters than just that one. PM's cookie is weird… In any case, I did this to fix it instead:

    --- pmchatter.html.old 2004-12-20 02:49:00.000000000 +0100 +++ pmchatter.html 2004-12-20 02:49:03.000000000 +0100 @@ -34,3 +34,3 @@ - try{ cookie.parse( this.req.getResponseHeader( 'Set-Co +okie' ) ); } + try{ decodeURIComponent( cookie.parse( this.req.getRes +ponseHeader( 'Set-Cookie' ) ) ); } catch( e ) { }

    Makeshifts last the longest.
