Greasemonkey 1.9 Release

The entire list of bugs handled in this release is also available via the 1.9 milestone on GitHub. Note that as always it takes some time for Mozilla to review the new version.  If you're interested in staying on the bleeding edge, try installing the development channel beta release.

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

Fixed bugs:
  • Keep the script name and version in sync, for the Add-ons Manager display. (#1734, #1710)
  • Fix launching editor from script preferences window, when certain extended characters are in the @name or @namespace. (#1732
  • Fix automated script updates (the first automatic update could cause future updates to stop working).  (#1723)
  • The abort() method for GM_xmlhttpRequest was not permissioned properly.   (#1714)
