Stop using Activity Stream in mozscreenshots
Since Activity Stream is set as the default home page / new tab page for Firefox, some screenshot configurations show it as a side effect. This leads to frequent intermittent inconsistencies such as this: https://screenshots.mattn.ca/comparisons/mozilla-central/0a7ff6e19bcc229500d92597fac9340d9bdef959/mozilla-central/a4ed10c530275490da48679c6ca5aa0ed196332a/windows7-32/controlCenter_064_compactLight_about.png or this https://screenshots.mattn.ca/comparisons/mozilla-central/a4ed10c530275490da48679c6ca5aa0ed196332a/mozilla-central/3f627210c55d6b2b0a0635683cc4a29102a90270/linux64/controlCenter_043_lightLWT_about.png and more. We also shouldn't trigger alerts for random configurations when Activity Stream lands new changes. Maybe we should override the home page with mozscreenshots.html?
about:home was originally chosen so that we do see regressions in its content… not sure what to do
This should be fixed indirectly once cropping lands. Then we can do an Activity Stream-specific configuration that is able to wait for all elements of the page to load and display before taking the screenshot.
