When we fail to launch the configured editor due to an incorrect path pref, bring up the configuration for that setting.

More details in the excellent greasemonkey-dev request:

I have two firefox's installed on my system, one for linux, one for
windows, both shares single profile. I am running both applications
with following command line :
for windows: firefox_windows\firefox.exe -profile .\profile
for linux: firefox_linux/firefox -profile -profile ./profile

I have installed Greasemonkey 0.9.6 and editor is set to Notepad++
from windows version.

Problem is that whenever I try to edit any greasemonkey userscript on
linux following error is added to error console :

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure
[nsILocalFile.initWithPath]" nsresult: "0x80520001
chrome://greasemonkey/content/utils.js :: GM_getEditor :: line 102"
data: no]

I understand the reason. Kindly make an update which asks for editor
when such error occurs.


Thank you very much for reporting issue for me. Issue is reproducible. If not, kindly reply me.
