  • To continue reading a single Nat Geo article more than halfway, you need to sign up for promotional emails from Disney
    Behind the Overlay does all this automatically. Much faster and easier than having to hunt down all the specific elements that disable functionality.
    There's also an add-on for both called Behind the Overlay that gets rid of these things with the press of a button. It won't work for anything paywalled, but it works great for sites like this that pop up an overlay and remove functionality to force you to sign in or sign up. Used it a lot on Instagram because I couldn't be bothered to sign up, and after scrolling a few rows, it requires you to sign in. Just press the button (or the keyboard shortcut), and it's gone and you can keep using the page.
  • Guys, i feel like i'm being tracked but I can't figure out how.

    There's also another extension called Behind the Overlay that will kill annoying overlays and make the page functional again. For example, if you browse Instagram without being logged in, after scrolling far enough, an overlay will pop up requiring you to log in. Just disabling the overlay through developer tools won't bring functionality back; you won't be able to click on anything or scroll. But BTO will do that. Just click the button or use the keyboard shortcut.
