The design of a pop-up that you use in your non phone formatted pages (in my case a laptop) does not allow the reader to respond to the pop-up. I presume that I am not alone in this.
None of my windows are run full screen. I use the full area of my desktop. Your pop-up’s purpose is to inform the user that there is a petition that could be signed. However since the pop-up is positioned so that the action response button is on the lower right side of the pop-up when the pop-up comes up in a non full screen use the "Add your name" button is inaccessible and invisible. The solution to this non user friendly situation is for your coders to move the pop-up to the top of the screen then the "Add your name" button is visible and accessible. You position the pop-up five to seven lines down from the top and then you put the "Add your name" button in the lower right side of the pop-up making the pop-up useless for someone who uses screen area for multiple windows.
Because of the way that you have coded the pop-up the mouse wheel does not work to get the foreground pop-up positioned so that one can use the "Add your name" button. Change the coding so the mouse can be used or the pop-up occurs on the page at a higher position or the "Add your name" button is accessible from the top of the pop-up. Not everyone uses the computer in the same way so your design should accommodate all users. Thank you for your attention to this issue.
