    Hi,

    more and more sites use overlays, mostly for self-advertising.
    Dislike them though. How would I block such overlays in AG?

    example: go to www.handelsblatt.de, click on Zenith-Pleite schockt die Branche
    (this one is actually kind of useful, chose it bc it is reliably reproducible)

    Also I dislike the overlays saying "read this or that" (lower right), was glad I could suppress such too (these especially suck on a tablet).
    See "Homepage Top News" here for instance:

    Thank you,

    Dolfi, for second picture:
    Code:
    handelsblatt.com###divStickyLayerWrapper
    Overlay I didn't see.
    Boo Berry, try this:
    - omgubuntu.co.uk
    Code:
    ||omgubuntu.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/omg-magnific/magnific.min.js
    or this
    Code:
    omgubuntu.co.uk##.mfp-bg.mfp-ready
    omgubuntu.co.uk##.mfp-container
    - noobslab.com
    Code:
    noobslab.com###fanback
    - omgchrome.com
    Code:
    ||netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/plugins/omg-magnific/magnific.min.js
    or
    Code:
    omgchrome.com##.mfp-bg.mfp-ready
    omgchrome.com##.mfp-container

    the question remains the same:
    How would I generally block overlays (w/o having to program a block on every single site)?
    These overlays sincerely suck! I do not want to become a bloody facebook fan every single day, I do not want to trash my iPad with a bloody app, I do not want to [insert whatever here].
    But especially I do not want to be bugged every single day!

    So how would I block these bloody advertisements?

    You can try rules like this without domain:
    Code:
    omgchrome.com##.mfp-bg.mfp-ready -> ##.mfp-bg.mfp-ready
    omgchrome.com##.mfp-container -> ##.mfp-container
