See #1249

After that patch, GM_notification gives:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIAlertsService.showAlertNotification]" nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)" location: "JS frame :: resource://greasemonkey/GM_notification.js :: GM_notification :: line 22" data: no]

And nothing is visible besides that error in the Error Console.


Confirmed. I ran into this today when I was installing a script. Opened a clean profile, installed 0.9.1 from AMO and got the same error when I tried to install another script.

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv: Gecko/20101203 Firefox/3.6.13
Tried with Growl uninstalled and it work correctly.
