Some time ago, the Washington Post changed its home page to add a highly annoying (to me) bar across the top that’s chock-a-block with sub-menus. It’s fairly high pixel-wise, and the sub-menus are large and persistent (they don’t disappear with a slight nudge of the mouse).
In other contexts I’d consider it a good menu. But I don’t use it, and it’s position and size means that often, after clicking a WaPo tab or bookmark, my mouse pointer remains near the top of the screen and the page’s headlines are obscured.
It’s not so bad that I want to remove dropdowns on all sites or jump through a series of hoops. I’m looking for a quick, site-specific fix, something hopefully built into NoScript or Adblock or available as an add-on.
Ah ha. I just blocked the basic wapost.com and it’s gone.
