jasonp doesn't work in greasemonkey user script, when loading jQuery via @require

After reading about new "@require" feature (in Greasemonkey 0.8), I've tried to rewrite my user script, that uses JQuery, accordingly.

I used the following code earlier:

... Add jQuery var GM_JQ = document.createElement('script'); GM_JQ.src = 'URL_to_jquery-1.3.2.min.js'; GM_JQ.type = 'text/javascript'; document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(GM_JQ);

Check if jQuery's loaded function GM_wait() {

if(typeof unsafeWindow.jQuery == 'undefined') { window.setTimeout(GM_wait,100); } else { $ = unsafeWindow.jQuery; letsJQuery(); }

} GM_wait();

All your GM code must be inside this function function letsJQuery() { ... } -----------

And I've tried to replace is by: ----------- ... @require URL_to_jquery-1.3.1.min.js ... $(document).ready(function() { ... }); -----------

After this, I've got most of JQuery functions working in my userJS script, as expected. However, cross-site requests stopped working.

Here's the code I'm using:


type: "GET", url: "URL_TO_my_own_script.php", data: {

action: 'get_note', user: xbUser, topicid: qNoteID

}, dataType: 'jsonp', jsonp: 'jsonp_callback', success: function(data) {

if (jqDiv.parent().parent().css

('background-color').search(/rgb/) == -1) {

jqDiv.data("orig_css", "rgb(230,

230, 230)");

} else {




qNoteResSuccess(data, jqDiv);


width: '100%', backgroundColor: '#eeeeee', border: '1px solid #009900'





Something like this. The key points are that it worked before, and it didn't change.

The point is that all the same code works, if I plug JQuery by 1st method ( document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(GM_JQ); ), but it fails to work, if I plug JQuery via @require tag.

The errors I get in the console:

Error: jsonp1250603530050 is not defined Source File: URL_TO_my_own_script.php?jsonp_callback=jsonp1250603530050&_=1250603531231&action=get_note&user=Vladimir+Mityukov&topicid=537110844

Line: 1

So, I've rolled back to the "old" way to plug JQuery. However, I'd like to switch to the "@require" once I get this problem resolved.

Please advise.

Note: the same bug-report was placed in greasemonkey's bug tracker, but still no effect:

From the description, this really sounds like a Greasemonkey issue. I tried visiting the site linked above with the bug report, but it seems to be down.

Please note that this is an issue with the way Greasemonkey handles @require and the use of jQuery in it's extensions/user scripts. For further information on ways you can resolve this, see: http://forum.jquery.com/topic/importing-jquery-1-4-1-into-greasemonkey-scripts-generates-an-error or http://stackoverflow.com/questions/859024/how-can-i-use-jquery-in-greasemonkey.
