I noticed that Screengrab (a firefox addon I use for screenshots of full webpages) started offering advertisements. While the ads offered are opt-in, the fact that they’re just lurking in the code bothered the hell out of me.

In case you’re interested in what I changed, download WinMerge and 7-zip, then extract the two XPIs with 7-zip. Compare the two directories with WinMerge.
This version is based on Screengrab (Fix Version) v0.99.04c.
