How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Click ABP icon
  3. Choose "Block element"
  4. Move pointer over search input field

Observed behaviour

Nothing is highlighted. However, there an overlay has been injected into the page which is correctly positioned where the text input is, but since it uses the same z-index it not visible.

Expected behaviour

The input field under the pointer should be highlighted. Therfore the overlay must use a z-index one higher than the element it was created for.
