Ads started to show up with no opt-out dialog Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be a great addon... too bad it started to show ads.

Supporting the author Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am opting in for the advertisement. I appreciate your honesty, and understand that the money from the advertisement might be needed to make the further development of the ScreenGrab possible. I do hope, that in reward we would see some new features coming in the nearest future.

Thanks for your support! I appreciate the fact that you are one of the many correct appreciated my approach to advertising!

Great utility, poor choice to move to adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This has been a useful utility the handful of times I've used it, but sorry, adding adware is either bloat (when disabled), or a privacy concern (when enabled). Either way a poor decision, and I've lost both trust and confidence in it. Will wait and see if the developer backtracks due to what I'm sure is going to be a flood of less than pleased users before removing, but if it doesn't change, I will. I respect the developers work, but this is not the way to solicit our support.

Security Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Now that this addon injects ads, it should be considered a serious security issue and reported to Mozilla!

Using it every day Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks a lot for your time and for the effort of developing ScreenGrab. On Monday I have turned on the ads option, but since still didn’t see any ads, are they actually working? I hope it helps. Good luck with your project.

> are they actually working?

Yes, but not all websites. Only for some online stores.
Suggested ads - are small tips about up-to-the-minute rebates, shown on the top of the page for certain shops you visit.

Publicité intrusive Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Publicité intrusive, je dis non, je vire donc cette extension sur le champ !

C'est avant tout le principe que je condamne, d'autant plus que la façon dont le choix est proposé n'est pas claire :

- En rouge : je ne soutiens pas
- En vert : Je soutiens

La moitié des utilisateurs vont cliquer sur le vert sans lire quoique ce soit !

Beaucoup de personnes, dont je fais partie, participent à la communauté du libre en donnant de leur temps en développant des applications, des extensions, en rédigeant de la documentation, parfois en faisant des dons etc.

Ce genre de méthode est pour moi condamnable, je m'étonne d'ailleurs que ce genre de pratique dans une extension pour Firefox soit permise.

Désormais, j'utiliserai une autre extension pour faire la même chose !

screengrab now attempts to inject content Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to love it, but screengrab now attempts to inject content. THIS IS NOT OPT-IN. The user has to explicitly opt-out, and for each single firefox installation separately (the claim that it's once in a lifetime is simply not true, it is actually per-installation). I simply do not trust this developer anymore.

Adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon now injects advertisements. Even though it's optional, and the dialogue is "only shown once", I now feel the software is compromised.

Donations are one thing. Injecting advertisements is another.

No Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Stopped working a while ago, and now has ads. The opt-out is passive-aggressively labeled "No, I don't want to support you". Uninstalling.

(Yes, dev, I know it "only displays once". I don't care. Your copy-and-paste reply to every person who mentions this just goes to show how bad you are at this.)

Popup Advertisements, etc. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Removed it just now along with a lot of others it seems since they decided to add popup ads, etc. Will never use addons by this dev again.

Appreciate Screengrab Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As one of the users wrote "I don't normally review addons, but..." so do I, but I want to say, that I'm satisfied with the work of the developer. Screengrab is a great addon under active development. If you want to support the author of this addon, you can opt-in to be displayed ads to sponsor the developer. That's it, it's your decision. It all seems quite fair to me. Actually, the dev rather gained my trust because he's clear about the ads, about how it works and it's not enabled by default. Anyway, thanks for the addon!

Needs a [Fixed Version] Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Frequent updates are good, but whenever it updates it opens an update tab and the most recent inclusion of a click in ad system made me uninstall it. Would much rather give 2 bucks then deal with constant monetization in programs.

Uninstalling for new donation page Rated 1 out of 5 stars

New obtrusive actions by extension suddenly. Started opening new tabs on its own asking for donations. I don't trust the extensions behavior any longer.

Edit: Dev, the problem is what you changed the program to do, not that it 'only does it once'

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't normally review addons, but today after notifying me of an update Screengrab injected a popup asking me if I'd like to get discounts and coupons for online retailers. Uninstalled as I no longer feel secure using it.

I uninstalled it, too Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Your decision including advertisements is brainless.
We - "the users" - always try to block ads. Because it's to much and almost for less good or bad products.
Now Screengrab undercuts our efforts, but brings a new safety hazard. Therefor I don't make any donation.
Good bye! MF

Uninstalling Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Occasional naggings for donations is one thing, this new stuff is another.

I'll be uninstalling.

really great, thx Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using this extension already for quite a while, and it really helps in my day-to-day activities. I've never donated you so far, but starting with the new version have donated my 2 cents by turning on the ads, I hope it would help you.
Thx again.

Thank you!

Injecting code is the worst you could do Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's not about whether it's by default or not: it's about the essence of it. And the essence of it is that you could run ads on your update page, or add a donate me button at the same place. Alternatively you could also show a big exclamation mark in the icon of your add-on.

Traffic injection is just low, base and mean, akin to what malware does. Stop it, remove this code and rethink your monetization policy. I'm appalled Mozilla has authorized this new version of add-on.

Promptly uninstalling.

Also, let's be fair: what are the aforementioned new features you're talking about? For two years you've been maintaining it you haven't even raised its version number, you haven't made it restartless, etc. etc. etc.

Edit: Александр: вы не поверите, но у меня в Android либо купленые приложения, либо приложения без рекламы. Так уж сложилось, что модель монетизации у Firefox почти никакая. Варианты я предложил, но traffic injection - это худшее, что можно было придумать. Кстати, об Android - там баннеры отдельно, приложение отдельно - никто traffic injection не занимается - грязное это дело - к тому же не ясно что вы там вставляете, и _нет_ никакой гарантии, что ваш поставщик рекламы не начнёт вирусы под видом рекламы всучивать - знаем, проходили, даже Google AdSense в этом участвовал.

Артем, но вы же не пишите гневные отзывы в гугл-маркет о рекламе в андроидных приложениях, которые вы используете? и заметьте! там реклама сразу и навсегда, а я единоразово предлагаю пользователю активировать эту опцию. Если пользователь не согласен, то ничего никуда не инжектируется!

Edit:
Артем, внимательно посмотрите как на сайтах вставляется обычная реклама, тот же GoogleAdsense или Яндекс, javascript-код которых присутствует на 90% всех сайтов, в том числе и популярных. и никто из посетителей этих сайтов не жалуется о том, что гугл или яндекс или другая рекламная сеть каким-то образом заражают их вирусами.

к тому же у меня договоренность с Мозиллой - в случае малейшего вредительства моей рекламной сети, мозилла мгновенно банит мой аддон и помещает его в черные списки для автоматического удаления из браузеров пользователей.

sorry, you've lost my trust Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Why are you injecting content into web pages? How can i trust that your not doing something else like stealing sessions?

Sorry, plugin removed due to lack of trust. Shame as it was a really good plugin

now with ads?? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be an excellent plugin. I was a bit annoyed by the self-displaying page at each update but found this ok. Now with included advertisements, it is so intrusive I'll uninstall it right now, even if you can disable them.
