    The settings page has 2 big ads blocking the fields to fill in for settings.
    Using Firefox and Genesis.

    Maybe you should push another update to disable ads by default. Because it's required by WordPress.org plugin guidelines:

    In general, things like banner or text link advertising should not be anywhere in a plugin, including on its settings screen. Advertising on settings screens is generally ineffective anyway, as ideally users rarely visit these screens, and the advertising is low quality because the advertising systems cannot see the page content to determine good ads. So they're best just left off entirely. Putting links back to your own site or to your social-network of choice is fine. If the plugin does include advertising from a third party service, then it must default to completely disabled, in order to prevent tracking information from being collected from the user without their consent. This is the method commonly known as "opt-in".

    By the way, pretty dissapointed that screenshots does not show any ads, and then... surprise! after install it :(
