    Greasemonkey script issue

    Hello Everyone! I'm new to JavaScript. I thought of learning by doing instead of just reading tutorials and books. So I started writing a Greasemonkey script for Facebook.

    Basically what it does is it creates a link to download photo albums from Facebook. I'm far from finished but anyway, here's my code so far.

    The format of the HTML code block where the URLs of pics are.

    <div class="tagWrapper">
    <i style="background-image: url(https://fbcdn-photos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/299595_10150290138650735_543370734_8021370_355110168_a.jpg);"></i>
    And here's my script so far,

    var picURL;
    var modURL;
    var URLset = [];
    for(var i=0; i<picURL.length; i++)
        //gets all the URLs in the page
        picURL = document.getElementsByClassName("tagWrapper")[0].children[0].style.backgroundImage;
        URLset.push(modURL);  //inserting them to an array
        alert(URLset) ;
    function modifyURL();
        //doing the replacements to make them downloadable
        modURL = picURL.replace("url(", "").replace(")", "");
        modURL = modURL.replace("a.jpg", "n.jpg");
        var dwn = "?dl=1";
        modURL = modURL.concat(dwn);
        return modURL;
    I have created a fiddle so that it all would be clearer.

    Since I'm half way through it, I just want to make sure it works up to this point so I have put an alert box to show all the modified URLs stored in the array. (supposed to, at least) the problem is, it isn't showing up.

    Can anyone please tell me what I have done wrong here? Bare with me for I'm new to this as I've mentioned earlier. Any help in teh right direction would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    just do what Atli explained.
    The computer is always right. The computer is always right. The computer is always right. Take it from someone who has programmed for over ten years: not once has the computational mechanism of the machine malfunctioned.
