Automatic remove overlays

Image from store Auto Overlay Remover
Description from store This lightweight extension automatically close overlay popup without the need to press on any button. You have probably encountered in web sites you visit, the frustrating overlay which masks the page content with a transparent or semitransparent background and above it a registration form, sign up for newsletter, advertising of products, a survey and etc. Overlays are the next generation after the standard popup window, which has almost gone from our web world. Overlays are much trickier and can appear in a variety of ways like: on website on load even before you can see any content, after a delay, when you move your mouse, click on something or even more creative ways. This extension is lightweight and will close for you most of the overlays without doing anything. There is no need to click or press anything for almost any overlay. You can add specific web sites to a white list, use different timing or more aggressive overlay cleaning. The permission to read / write needed for saving the white list. I hope that my extension will succeed to make your web surfing less frustrating and more pleasant. In case you have questions, comments or suggestion you more than welcome to send me email to: [email protected] what's new in version 1.0.4: * Updated algorithm.

  • (2021-11-05) Pat MySecret: Fantastic! Ask first option might be good While fantastic, users might also consider, running in tandem the "Nope To Overlays" extension, which is manual vs being automatic. It picks up a few strays. It makes a great team! There are times, however, that Auto Overlay picks up pop up windows that I need.. they do have a white list option. 11/21 Even more effective at times, if you are not in an interactive mode, is using a ReaderView Extension if it suits your style. Some of them work on autorun.
  • (2021-04-10) Sparkschu Itai: NOT WORKING!!!! This is a scam. You should be ashamed.
  • (2020-12-22) artur artur: it works but not smooth at all, you see the the unwanted overlay for a while (1-3 sec) and then it disappears. So, technically, it does its job but in a clumsy way.
  • (2020-09-27) совсем неважно: Nice! To anyone who liked this extension, check out the PopUpOFF one - it also prevents overlays from appearing.
  • (2020-09-22) FirstName LastName: Maybe this works on some sites, I don't know. I only wanted it to remove the annoying agreement on Google in private mode. Didn't work.
  • (2020-01-03) George Fayad: Works perfectly fine for most sites. Tried it on one of the worst (kbb) and it worked perfectly. Some sites fail to load properly because of it, at which point you just have to white list and deal with it.

  • (2018-10-29) Code Bit Cookie: it works perfectly fine you just have to refresh the page after reading the reviews I tried and it worked. I'm not sure it works on every website but i tried multiple times and it works.

  • (2017-10-26) Put simply, I tried it on about ten overlay sites (which is most sites these days) and this extension doesn't work. And I also don't trust the fake/paid reviews that give it five stars.
  • (2017-10-17) Derrick Simpson: Simply put, it doesn't work for a simple div with left:0, right:0, top:0, bottom:0 that's absolutely positioned and blocks the context menu.

  • (2019-08-20, v:1.0.7) Avi Wasserman: Breaks modals
    On some sites in which modals are the primary way to interact with the web page (e.g. Steam Guard, Google Chrome download), the modal will simply close after clicking the button that opens it. I know the modal is closed by this extension because I disabled it to test if that's what causing the modal to close it.
