I went to stackoverflow.com/users/edit/my_SO_id page and clicked on "See an example newsletter" link. The box with an example newsletter appeared:

Then I clicked on the dark zone:

The dark overlay vanished, but the box did not. I tried pressing Esc and the outcome was the same (no surprises here).

(I believe) The bug is reproducible on all SE sites.

This popup still used some custom popup javascript. Most of the popups were standardized to support layering (like in the suggested edit -> improve/reject+edit case), this one somehow slipped through.

A fix is rolling out in the next build (rev 2015.2.19.3097 on meta, 2015.2.19.2316 on sites).
