You can use AdBlock for more than just blocking ads. In-page pop-ups, or the "Subscribe to our newsletter!"-style pop-ups that overlay a web page when you visit a site, are not blocked by default. EasyList, the primary filter list we use to determine what to block, considers these legitimate self-promotion rather than third-party ads.
If you would rather not see these, however, turn on the Fanboy's Annoyances filter list in AdBlock's options. Fanboy's Annoyance blocks in-page pop-ups, social media content, and other annoying features on web pages.
- Click the AdBlock icon in your browser toolbar and click on the gear symbol.
- On the Filter Lists tab, select the check box next to the Fanboy's Annoyances filter list.

If you're seeing a pop-up like this with the Fanboy's Annoyances list enabled, please report it to the list maintainers. You can find the contact info in our Knowledge Base.
