Modal Window popups

I am really, really tired of modal windows popping up on countless sites. They need to go away.

I have tried Poper Blocker, Stoppity-Poppity, ... and I can't find any other extension that will get rid of these infernal overlays.

Clarification of modal window: a smaller window on a website page that pops up that you must interact with before you can go back to the content... e.g. when you're done with an Upworthy video, they ask if you want to sign up for more.

There are plenty of other examples of shaded screen + popup window. Usually it's an ad, but sometimes they ask for a subscription. Either way, I came to the site for the content, not the ad or notice.

Yeah, Adblock usually lets you block specific elements on a page.
