Be careful with old versions!
These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.
- Fix a Firefox crash caused by a bad greasemonkey-script: URL (i.e. passing the empty string, or a nonexistent resource name to GM_getResourceUrl().) (#1623)
- Re-fixed the setTimeout + alert issue; it popped up again in the grant none case. (Note: Firefox 16 fixes this for real. This just applies the same old workaround.) (#1620)
- Fixed the character encoding of the es-CL translation. (#1616)
- Fixed the display of the "Enabled" check mark in the monkey menu. (#1611)
- Fixed the "Show Script Source" button for some scripts. (#1609)
- Killed the final remaining zombie compartment (i.e. memory leak). (#1608)
- The toolbar button is colorful (in the enabled state) on Mac OS X. (#1597)
- The metadata @unwrap has been removed, as being unwrapped is now the default. The wrapper will still be applied to scripts that have a "return" statement outside of any function, but this may be removed in the future, so make sure your scripts (and requires) don't do this; authors may manually add an anonymous function wrapper around the script for the exact same behavior. (#1568, #1592)
- Scripts that @run-at document-start have a valid document object to modify, E.G. for adding <style> tags; but still before any part of the document is loaded. (#1565)
- GM_xmlhttpRequest() accepts a timeout option. (#1561)
- GM_getResourceURL() works with a special protocol handler. (This is more efficient/faster than the data: URI encoding used previously.) For example, specify images and styles with URLs to your @resources.
- The standard Firefox web developer console works for console.log() et al. (#1564)
- Automatic updates work correctly with scripts installed from userscripts.org (but still note the require secure updates setting). (#1555)
- Require at least Firefox 14.0 (no more Firefox 3 compatibility). (#1426, #1522)
- Error reporting is much more consistent and obvious than in the past. (#1404, #1592)
- The alert() workaround (see http://bugzil.la/647727) is not applied for Firefox versions that do not exhibit this bug. (#1318, #1350)
Bug fixes since Greasemonkey 0.9.x:
- When downloading a script not encoded in UTF-8, display an error message to the user (rather than just failing). (#1588)
- The "show script" button in the install dialog is disabled until the download of the script file is complete. (#1586)
- Scripts with missing or broken "==UserScript==" metadata will work. (#1562)
* Fix memory leak related to GM_registerMenuCommander. (#1578)
- When the toolbar is in text-only mode, the "Greasemonkey" label on the toolbar button will be striked-out when Greasemonkey is disabled. (#1544)
- When selecting a script editor, the previous choice will be remembered and displayed. (#1546)
- Automatic update checking can be enabled, without automatically installing updates. (#1455)
- Script updating is enabled by default. Please read the blog post describing this new feature. (#1462, #1463, #1480)
- Error: "aForced is not defined". (#1517)
- Expose information (including Greasemonkey version) to user scripts via GM_info. (#1452; also see #1512)

- Editing script from the "New User Script" feature, to change any remote dependency (@icon,
@require, @resource), could the script to malfunction. (#1504)
- Enabling/disabling scripts from the status bar menu (Firefox 3 only). (#1506)
- Incompatibility with GreaseFire. (#1507)
- Failures during "Check for Updates" from the Add-on manager. (#1509)

- Toggling the enabled state of a script via the main (Tools > Greasemonkey) menu failed on Mac. (#1496)
- Installing a script from local disk failed in 0.9.14. (#1501)
- For new script installs, and installed scripts' updates (still not enabled by default) there is a progress meter for the download. (#1419)
- Script updates install automatically. (#1442)
In 0.9.12 we added update checking. In 0.9.13 updates install automatically, but there's still some discussion over how to handle this best (#1455), so checking is still not enabled by default. We hope to figure this out by the 0.9.14 release. Some other update related work was done, mostly to make Firefox 3 work better. (#1421, #1422, #1423)
- Provide an Options item in the Monkey Menu. (#1447)
- Add a Cancel button to the Options window. (#1454)
- Script update checking (limited!). (#1053)
- Shared window object. (#1278)
- Right-clicking a script in the Monkey Menu works, even when no editor is configured. (#1405)

- Global, user specified, @exclude rules. (#1002)
- New @run-at metadata imperative, which supports value document-start, as well as the standard document-end behavior. Please see the documentation. (#1103)
- Support for @match metadata imperative, as implemented by Google Chrome. Thanks to Scriptish for original implementation. (#1377)
- Support for full regular expression syntax in @include/@exclude rules. Please see the documentation. (#1378)
- Scripts with broken @icons will install, just with no icon. (#1214)
- Editing the @icon line of a script will take effect immediately. (#1215)
- Remote resources (@require, @resource, @icon) that redirect to other URLs will now work. (#1222)
- Installing and uninstalling the same script many times does not work properly. (#1353)
- GM_xmlhttpRequest() does not work in Firefox 5 betas. (#1354)
- (Introduced in 0.9.4:) Cannot enable nor disable scripts. (#1355)
- Installing the first user script while the user scripts pane of the add-ons manager is open leaves the "no user scripts" warning. (#1356)
- The installation dialog shows the script version, if provided with @version. (#1349)
- Error message logged ("Redeclaration of const document")/high CPU usage when closing the sidebar. (#1226, #1298)
- Navigating to a .user.js inside a frame works like anywhere else. (#1248)
- The list of user scripts in the Add-ons Manager would sometimes forget its sort order. (#1307)
- Compatibility enhancement with AutoPager (broken in 0.9.2). (#1344)
- Passing a non-function to GM_registerMenuCommand()'s commandFunc broke the entire menu, and items showed up in the wrong order (both broken in 0.9.2). (#1346, #1347)
- Failure on OSX when Growl is installed, but not running. (#1264)
- Incorrect display of Greasemonkey icon in Add-ons window (Firefox 3.6, OS X). (#1284, #1291)

- Remove "accelerator" keys from GM_registerMenuCommand(). (#1312, previously)
- Work around incompatibility with Personas Plus extension. (#1253)
- Fix user script sandbox wrapping. This deals with lots of problems like eval(). (#1258, also #1254, #1260, #1263, #1265)<br>If your script(s) stopped working with 0.9.0, this should fix them.
- Fixed rare bug when installing scripts. (#1250)
- Fixed errors when Growl is not installed on Mac OS X. (#1249)
- Fixed problems with relative @require imperatives. (#1262)
- Allow sorting by descending (as well as ascending) execution order. (#1217)
- Compatibility with Firefox 4! Note that because of Firefox bug 612025 this is somewhat unsafe for 4.0b7 to 4.0b9 (inclusive). Beta 10 should be fixed (the nightly build on January 14th definitely is). Firefox 4 support is still preliminary. Everything probably works, but not everything works really well. The backlog of bugs for the next release is primarily focused on this.

- A global options dialog, where the script editor can always be selected. (#1012, #1109)
