[*] overlays not blocked (example: handelsblatt.de)

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

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
