The latest firefox major update in stable broke greasemonkey (#828622).
The latest stable version of greasemonkey in Debian (3.8) is known to
work with it, and has been in Sid and Stretch for a while.
Unfortunately, the debdiff against the version is Jessie is quite insane
(252 files changed, 6416 insertions(+), 3144 deletions(-) while ignoring
all spaces and blank lines)…

I’m simply attaching the debdiff against Sid (adding a changelog entry).
The package, rebuild in a Jessie chroot, has been successfully tested in
