 Yes popups - block sliders ?, "Read this next" pop-in sliders

This is a feature request - for Yes popups...

( unless this feature is currently available? -- I don't see it mentioned. )

Recently on some webpages, when scrolling down towards the end, there are what I call "Pop-in Sliders" -- that are very annoying.

I want to be able to block these sliders, for all websites -- or at least be able to turn them off on particular websites.

Examples: --

1) all of the story pages at -- http://www.nytimes.com/ -- for example:


2) all of the story pages at -- http://www.mercola.com/ -- for example:


( site #2 turns off the sliders at the very end, so go back up a little bit )

Has anyone else noticed these Pop-in sliders?

I hate them -- they're like saying: -- "Hurry up -- you've got more to read over here..."

Would a blocker be easy to add to Yes popups ?

I haven't seen any other Firefox extensions that can do this.

I've been aware of this limitation since the beginning. The thing is, Yes popups only tweaks Firefox settings, and Firefox can't catch "pop-in sliders" (aka fly-in ads). Catching those seems quite tricky, actually.
On a side note I'm not developing Firefox extensions anymore apart from basic search engine "add-ons" like Scroogle SSL search.
