Firefox Greasemonkey Extension Security Problem

psycho_tinman Re:Why Uninstall? (443 comments)

Well, this is the recommended course of action. However, Greasemonkey 0.3.5 is crippled. It does not contain the special GM_ functions so the majority of scripts will break.

Anything that uses GM_XMLHttpRequest, GM_setValue or GM_getValue or GM_Log will not function. It was the developers attempt to make sure that no remote exploits popped up while they were working on the best possible fix.

So, no. Don't install the update and expect things to function normally, they will not.

trolling .. ? or a bug ?

psycho_tinman psycho_tinman writes  |  more than 10 years ago I just made a comment here, on the parenting for coders discussion. When I checked back this morning, I found that an anonymous coward had posted the same comment, word for word here, a few comments higher in the thread.

Was this just a bug in the comment code ? (so did I post twice ?) or did someone do it for karma (the copy got modded upto +4).. ? or is someone trying to prove a point about the moderators ? Strange. I simply can't see a motive.

Anyway, my first journal entry on Slashdot. w00t! :)
