Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I recently opened an XML file on the local file system and got the following (very odd) message at the top of the page:

The site you are about to shop will not earn you Contributed. We suggest

The message is getting cropped off and auto-hides after about 20 seconds. It occurs anytime I open a local xml file.

What is this?

Probably an addon that got added in. I would check what addons you have turned on. –  MrStatic Aug 26 '10 at 1:03

What it is, it is not an IE8 message. So it is either from the xml file or an addon. Try starting IE8 in safe mode to rule out addons.

Turns out it was the Digsby Donates addon created by Freecause. Disabling the add-on got rid of the message. Very weird! –  pygorex1 Aug 26 '10 at 18:30
