User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1 Build ID: 20120713134347 Steps to reproduce: Viewed web pages that use Wordpress and similar software. Actual results: Annoying pop-ups, usually at bottom or right of each page, block reading of text and interfere with the PageUp/PageDown keys performing their proper scrolling function as well. And right-clicking does nothing, so there's no way to make them go away. Expected results: The option for blocking pop-ups should also block these annoying things even though they are not separate windows.
Hello John David, I just found your 2 years old bug report, but I was not able to reproduce it without additional information. can you maybe give us a URL where we can see such a "popup"? my first idea is that this is a style part of the page, so there is no way to block it. thanks for some feedback
I can no longer find the really bad examples I recall from when I posted this bug, but here is a page where it still happens: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/10/the-society-of-fugitives/379328/ Scroll down two or three screens and a popup saying "Get The Atlantic on Facebook" appears at lower right. After that you can scroll up or down as much as you like, but that popup stays put. That's the kind I'm talking about here.
