I should probably make this a FAQ for Platypus, but if you go in and edit 
the GM script that Platypus creates, you'll see that it waits for an event 
before executing any changes to the page. You can try removing that line and 
just executing the Platypus function without waiting for the event. That 
will work on many pages and eliminate some of the wait. On other pages it 
will break :-)

Email me with your script if you don't see how to make the change.
