1) I was able to select the overlaying DIV element that opens an ad when clicking on it. After that elements on the page can be selected as usual. Therefore hiding that transparent overlay via a filter should resolve this issue.

2) The hiding works for me but only for this one specific image. Using the filter[src^="data:image/jpeg;base64,"] I was able to hide each of those.

Note that both examples seem to randomize the element's class name so you may want to use the newly introduced CSS property filters for that.

weird, with the last filters, all it's fine now ...

before this last fix I wasnt able to select something on the page (perhaps it was the overlay you're talking about)
