Modified date shown in about:addons is wrong - Part 2 #1778
Firefox 22, new profile, install GM 1.11, restart the browser.
Install any userscript from USO (i.e. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/83584 , it also has a custom icon ), after installation, go to about:addons and double-click on the installed userscript, and the result is as expected:
Close the addon manager, and hit the install-button on the userscript-page again.
No icon and "Last Update" will say "Thursday, January 01, 1970"
This also happens if you close and reopen the browser between the two installations.
I have no idea, why this was working fine right after #1744 was fixed, as now this errors also happens with 1.8 and earlier, which wasn't the case when I reported the bug the first time. Maybe I wasn't testing as thoroughly as I thought.
Confirmed on: Greasemonkey 0.9.13+ (0.9.13 - oddly only sometimes)
List scripts on addon window - Windows (the icon):
First - icon.fileURL:
Second - icon.fileURL:
The same problem: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/153699 etc.

I also tested userscripts without custom icons (i.e. arantius' Linkify Plus), but since doubleclicking on the entries in the userscript-manager doesn't do anything in these older versions of GM (pre-1.4), the bug isn't as obvious because their icon isn't changing.
So the problem here seems to be that
So I guess there's two options here: Either live with this foldername suffix, or split up the call to
When it's not showing the icon in the addon-manager, you can right-click on it, hit Edit, then just safe the script in the editor and close it. The icon and the proper "last updated"-date will be back.
