This issue happened a few days ago, while Nightly was still 6a1 and GM 0.9.4. I am unable to view the scripts in the Manager. I don't know if the culprit is GM or Stylish (or even Firefox itself) but neither works.

I assume this means ... Firefox Aurora 6.0a1? More details would help.

@arantius,

While it is ideal to keep up with the bleeding edge Alphas it's not practical. Beta channel is a better solution to peruse but still be aware of what's coming down the pipeline in Alphas (Aurora) that affects GM. GMs XHR didn't work in the 6.0a1 series either but then it's not beta.

@hateradio

Yes, I'm aware that running alphas is not practical; however, I've been curious about them since the rapid release schedule.


Here are some details.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:7.0a1) Gecko/20110528 Firefox/7.0a1
(Like I said, it was 6 at the time, but the issue persists.)

I followed the GM wiki guide and created a fresh "test" profile. Here are the error console messages at start.

Could not read chrome manifest file 'C:\Program Files\Minefield\extensions\{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}\chrome.manifest'. (This happens to be the default style/theme.)

Warning: XUL box for _moz_generated_content_after element contained an inline #text child, forcing all its children to be wrapped in a block. Source File: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul Line: 0 (Here's an image of that.)

Warning: WARN addons.manager: Exception calling callback: TypeError: aAddon is null Source File: chrome://greasemonkey/content/addons4-overlay.js Line: 79


Clicking on the sidebar tabs results in the same line 79 error.

Error: aAddon is null Source File: chrome://greasemonkey/content/addons4-overlay.js Line: 79

Warning: WARN addons.manager: Exception calling callback: TypeError: aAddon is null Source File: chrome://greasemonkey/content/addons4-overlay.js Line: 79

Here's an image of the line.

It's not even worth trying to debug GM in Firefox alphas. You don't know which bugs are from GM and which are from Firefox.

Out of Alpha (Aurora)... Beta channel takes some time to propagate/update so use this link instead:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/ and look for the 6.0b#-candidates folder where # is the build number.

Currently everything here checks out so far EXCEPT the AOM User Scripts. List is sometimes empty and other times it is showing content from AOM Extensions. GMs XHR appears to work okay with usoCheckup.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0 (BETA 1 64bit en-US)
Greasemonkey HEAD with version bump
Migrated near clean test profile created yesterday

Error console report(s):

Warning: reference to undefined property Components.interfaces.gmIBrowserWindow
Source File: chrome://greasemonkey/content/browser.js
Line: 14

Unfortunately that is it.

It's time to address this issue, there are only weeks before Fx6 officially release.

@arantius arantius added a commit that closed this issue Jul 9, 2011
@arantius arantius Add the "types" parameter to the .registerProvider() call.
Firefox 6 requires this; we keep our XUL overlay and don't pass most of the optional parameters, to maintain compatibility with 4 and 5.

Fixes #1357
