OS X: Cannot install scripts, 0.9.1 #1292

A few people have reported the inability to install scripts, on OS X and GM 0.9.1:

As pointed out in one of those threads, I cannot reproduce. Another extension incompatibility?


I am experiencing the same problem, OS X 10.6.6, Firefox 3.6.14. I've tried disabling all other extensions, to no avail.

When I press the 'Install' button, the script is actually downloaded and installed, but the dialog is never closed. Thus, I still am presented with the option of "Install" or "Cancel". If I press Cancel (or the Escape key), the script file is then removed from my gm_scripts directory.

If I kill Firefox will the dialog is still up, and then restart, the script is installed and working.

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110218 Firefox/3.6.14

Javascript error:
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIAlertsService.showAlertNotification]" nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)" location: "JS frame :: file:///Users/gaudio/Library/Application%20Support/Firefox/Profiles/amazon00.default/extensions/%7Be4a8a97b-f2ed-450b-b12d-ee082ba24781%7D/modules/GM_notification.js :: GM_notification :: line 22" data: no]


To those experiencing this bug, installing Growl ( ), or making sure it is running (System Preferences, Other, Growl) should help until there is a permanent fix.


I've heared about it too, always firefox 3.6 and mac and greasemonkey 0.9.1
(and about 4 users complained out of 1000 total, I think it's pretty common)


This is ultimately a dupe of #1264
