GoogleMonkeyR and SkipScreen Incompatibility

I'm a user of the GoogleMonkeyR userscript, and for a few months I had been thinking that Google had changed something that caused the script to have the first result right-aligned instead of left-aligned. It turns out, the problem is actually because I'm also a user of SkipScreen. The problem lies in the 'search refinements' setting, it must be disabled for GoogleMonkeyR to work properly, either do this from the GUI SkipScreen options dialog, or change the value extensions.skipscreen.searchrefinementsactive to false. Hopefully, this saves someone else some confusion.
