I did what was segested and the overlay blocker does not work. Also how come there are no overlay blockers for firefox android?
Will be good when it works with user-assignable shortcut key, and with Pinterest Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Came looking for this because I need ability to get rid of those popups without using mouse cursor. Will be great when/if you get this working with a keyboard shortcut that I can choose.
It doesn't work with Pinterest. That's OK. Pinterest can bite me. But it would be nice if you could defeat Pinterest's super annoying login popup that makes their site unusable for people with accessibility issues.
Like it! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a nice little add-on that works well. It doesn't save clicks but it does save time because you no longer have to hunt for the little "x" or whatever to close an overlay.
To be more useful, I think it needs a keyboard shortcut. Also, the icon is overdone and doesn't match well with Firefox icons and buttons.
F**k you Pinterest!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Lightboxes and overlays - the new scourge of the internet.
Pinterest was the one that was really annoying me and this has fixed it.
Works great, but does not save time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
This add-on seems to work great most of the time, however, it does not save the fact that you have to click somewhere to close the overlay. For this plug-in to be useful, it needs to ask if it should close the overlay automatically the next time to build a list of web site where overlay should be kept at bay.
Great but not working in private windows. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't agree with Beer Patzer and Charles770, I use few sites where there is noway to get rid of the overlay with a click. This addon works perfectly for me. Only one problem: in private window the addon's icon disappears. I understand the need for privacy (and therefore to deactivate the addon) in private mode but would great if there was a way to choose whether to have it active or not in private windows.
NEEDS TO BE SEAMONKEY COMPATIBLE!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is an AWESOME add-on, but I'd love to see it be compatible with the Seamonkey browser! (HINT HINT!!!!) :D
I agree Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I agree with Beer Patzer: it's 1 click instead of 1. This extension should do the job automatically IMO.
Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The entire idea of an overlay blocker is to do it AUTOMATICALLY. If it takes a click to close the overlay popup, then why do you even need this extension???? You can do it manually!
ok Rated 3 out of 5 stars
But i find out a way to block overlays using this css code:
/* Selects every <div> element whose style attribute value contains the substring "z-index" */
display: none !important;
Put this code in your userContent.css file.

Works fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just what I needed. Thanks!
Nutzlos Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Ob ich jetzt das (x) am aufblitzenden Overlay klicke oder das Icon dieses "Add-Ons" bleibt sich gleich. Das Add-On ist KEIN Blocker - es lässt jedes nervende Overlay durch!
Pointless Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I can "remove an overlay in 1 click" by pressing the X on the overlay. I was hoping this would BLOCK the overlay from showing up
A unique of its kind Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Pop-up ads are a history, overlays took their place. Ironically, with so many tools to fight pop-ups, none is available to combat overlay-based interaction terror. Kiss good bye all that annoying crap nagging you to like some page on Facebook, register for a free newsletter or just simply blocking you from accessing a web page. You should really be surprised how much you'll use it.
tut was es tun soll Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Unverzichtbar -wie oft hat man eine nervige Werbung, die sich komplett über den Screen legt. Seltsamerweise blockt weder Adblock Plus noch Bluhell diese lästige Werbung. Dieses Addon macht Schluß damit - einfach anklicken und weg ist der Mist.
Empfehlenswert! Speicherverbrauch etwa 660 kB - das ist ok.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very nice addon, really like it! Could you make it work in Private mode too? It seems the toolbar button is missing.
Works great, nice tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a great little feature to avoid stubborn overlays. I'm surprised how often I use this.
Very handy for getting around stubborn pop-ups Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent add-on for sites such as theonion.com that block reading with a pop-up that asks for membership. This add-on removes such pop-ups and allows reading. Many thanks!
Great extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Looking forward to the autoclose feature to be implemented and mentioned on twitter.
Great pop-up remover Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Tried it on a couple of websites, works flawlessly and fast.
It's also way more intuitive than looking for a close button or another method to close an annoying pop-up.
