Oh well, since it looks like this is local to me, I'll have to assume its something on my machines that is causing the problem. Maybe a malware blocker or something.
Since you asked me about this, I've now verified that I get the same behavior from script version 1.5.6 installed in up-to-date versions of Chrome running on Windows XP and 7, and on Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9. All my machines can see the junction angles in the production editor, but not in the beta. Methinks it's as Alan suggested, a matter of the allowed URLs in the current version of the script. I guess we have to wait. At least the production editor has conversations and time-restrictions now.

It doesn't work (at least on Chrome) when permalink contains segments

This script has been available from the Chrome Store for quite a while now. Are you still using a really old version?

The nature of this request stems from the sheer complexity of the routing algorithm decision on turn instructions to be given (or not) during navigation...

The suggested modification is to change the background color of the Turn angle bubble (currently green) when two adjacent segments are selected...
I think that any one of the options proposed would be a tremendously helpful addition to JAI. I enthusiastically support this idea!

One thing occurred to me as I was considering the color suggestions: We have some editors in our community who are colorblind. I believe that blue and orange are the most easily distinguishable colors for most kinds of colorblindness, and because turn angles don't have the same associations as red and green do with go and stop, we could avoid those troublesome hues in this context.

Where is the source of changes to algorithms?
Waze is the source on this. After our NA meetup in NY

Well.. this is too difficult compared to simple script installation.. Besides it does not autoupdate.

Hi seb-d59,
Please look at this segment on permalink - use snapshot for couple days, while old map lasts,
segment to uturn had 45,89 degrees angle, so app said keep right when driving straight.. JAI displayed straight as straight. - should have displayed keep right.

Actually it does not display yellow bubble there, thats why I asked.
It displayed straight on straight line, and left one was overriden, so it displayed uturn there.
Should have displayed straight as keep right.
Also this was the instruction for going straight - keep right.
