Info: block annoying overlay on in firefox CSS

For any visitors to who use Firefox and are annoyed by the 'I am a private investor' / survey overlay, here's a way I've (eventually!) worked out to hide it using CSS in Firefox: add the following lines to your userContent.css file in the chrome directory of your profile:

{ /* overlay */
display: none !important;

Thanks for the tip, although I had never heard of that website before. What prevents me from hitting that "close" button in the upper right corner though?

Well, nothing to prevent you closing it, but I spent three months opening the page, then immediately closing the overlay ... so I found a way to remove it.


css, firefox
