Script editor application in non-ASCII folder doesn't work #1173

When trying to edit some script for a first time, Greasemonkey prompts for an editor location. User chooses desired edtor, and it's being written to greasemonkey.editor config variable.

But when the path to editor includes non-ASCII symbols (in my case, it's "/Applications/Программирование/"), editor cannot be launched. The only solution is to move my editor to some fail-safe location and set config variable manually, which is quite frustrating.

I suppose this issue may apply to other operating systems as well.


is "/Application/Программирование/" stored in the greasemonkey.editor config variable correctly? or does that look incorrect?


yes, it's a correct path


Confirmed, on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100722 Firefox/3.6.8. Console dumps:

FSPathMakeRef(/.../@>3@0<<8@>20=85/ failed with error -43.

Using runw would prob fix this, since the docs say it was added in Gecko 1.9.3 it won't work for FF <= 3.6 so checking that it exists and using it when it does is a solution that will only work for newer versions of FF, afaictatm.


just tested using runwAsync on a folder with the name above, and that worked.


The dupe #1325 says this happens on Win7 as well.
