  • Status changed from new to reviewing
  • Summary changed from Not able to block Facebook,Google elements. to "Block element" injects overlays with wrong z-index

That is because the overlay we inject for the image below the login dialog, uses a higher z-index than that dialog. The overlays should always use the same z-index as element they were created for, to make sure that they are positioned over that element, but below other elements with higher z-index.
