Greasemonkey 0.9.7 Release

Bug fixes:
  • Scripts with broken @icons will install, just with no icon. (#1214)
  • Editing the @icon line of a script will take effect immediately. (#1215)
  • Remote resources (@require, @resource, @icon) that redirect to other URLs will now work. (#1222)
  • Compatibility with Firefox 6 and 7. (#1357)
  • GM_openInTab() will respect the insertRelatedAfterCurrent preference. (#1370)
The entire list of bugs handled in this release is also available via the 0.9.7 milestone on GitHub. Note that as always it takes some time for Mozilla to review the new version, but it's available on the all versions page immediately.

If you are using it and notice problems, it's best to either let us know at greasemonkey-dev or log an issue (and be clear that it's with this version).

I can't find the link to download it on
The latest version it appears is 0.9.6
Is there another place where I can download it to test it?

Best Regards.

How about making greasemonkey Firefox 8 64bit compatible??

Aw damn, looks like I am too late.
I found a bug, but I can't be bothered to report it anywhere else.
When you use a Greasemonkey script on a page which you have pinned onto your tab-bar in Firefox it triggers twice whenever you visit that page in that pinned tab.
E.G.: got a script
I go to, then from there I go to again. If it's in a pinned tab, the script runs twice, if not everything is fine.
Please fix this issue.

I use Greasemonkey (with FF6) for "reddit enhancement suite" and this version seem not to be working correctly - there are buttons missing, etc. Unless it's because I tried earlier forcing 0.9.6 to work (by disabling compatibility check) and it somehow messed up some settings. i tried installing and re-installing but it doesn't help. Any ideas?

Nope, clicking the "download" link at the ~/versions/ page just goes back to the 0.9.6 installation page and refuses to work with FF6 -- whether I go to the "versions" page in English or in Japanese, same result.

The max ffox version for this release is 7.* although on addon page it says that the addon is not compatible with ffox more than 5.*

Remote resources (@require, @resource, @icon) that redirect to other URLs will now work.
:o That's scary! A script could be harmless at first, then the external resources get changed out and it loads malicious content!

If someone has the power to make a page redirect, then they also have the power to change the content of the original page anyway.
