Im using Safari 6.0.5 and since about 2 weeks I have the following problem:


When there is a product shown on the site (e.g. an MacBook, a bicycle, ...), there appear after a few seconds little pics of this product with price tags. When I point on a product on a site, there appears "similar" under the mouse pointer. And when I click on "similar", products appear with prices.


How can I get rid of this unwanted service? (without turning of JawaScripts)

    From the Safari menu bar, select


    Safari â–¹ Preferences â–¹ Extensions


    Turn all extensions OFF and test. If the problem is resolved, turn extensions back ON and then disable them one or a few at a time until you find the culprit.


    If you wish, you may be able to salvage the errant extension by uninstalling and reinstalling it. Its settings will revert to their defaults. If the extension still causes a problem, remove it permanently or refer to its developer for support.

    Disabling the extension "Awesome Screenshot" worked for me. Sad, I loved using that plugin but now I am really upset they added that crap when it has nothing to do with taking screenshots. I would rather pay a few bucks, but they chose to just make people freak out and think they caught something else on their machines. I wouldn't be suprised some people reformat their machines thinking they got hacked.
