Hm, what version of Greasemonkey, exactly? 0.2.6 is what's linked from
the front page's "install greasemonkey." 0.3b is listed in the sidebar.
Others have been mentioned and released on this list.

Also, please try running it from the command-line and seeing if there
are any error messages printed. The more debugging info the merrier.

Hm, I assume others using this Debian package haven't had the same
problem? It looks like they applied some patches to the normal 1.0.2
release to address the security problems [1]. 1.0.3 is in the "unstable"
group of packages, according to the web listing. I'd suggest downloading
and trying the 1.0.3 .deb [2] if it wouldn't be too much trouble.
