Might be due to the latest Greasemonkey update from 1.15 to 2.0. This has already brought problems to GC little helper script. On the Greasemonkey add-on page you may read (in the Version information section on the bottom):


Backwards incompatible changes:


For stability, reliability, and security the privileged sandbox has been updated to match the new changes to unsafeWindow for the Add-on SDK. In order to write values to unsafeWindow you will need to use the new methods cloneInto(), exportFunction(), and/or createObjectIn().

The @grant none mode is now the default, and grants will no longer be implied when not explicitly provided. See the post Sandbox API Changes in Greasemonkey 2.0 for more detail.


If your script already specifies @grant none, these changes will not affect you. If your script does not interact with unsafeWindow, these changes will not affect you.


Otherwise, these changes will break some scripts. These scripts will need to be updated to work correctly again. We don't take breaking changes lightly. It's been just under two years since version 1.0 when we last introduced major changes, and it these particular changes are both important and valuable in the long run.


I downgraded back to GM 1.15 and prohibited the add-on from updating until GClh is updated.
