[Solved]Maddening "help" popup

  • At one point I opted in some sort of "assist" and now, every time I type a reply in gmail, and I select some of my text (to delete it or cut it to the clipboard), a huge blob pops up and gives me unwanted grammatical advice. And then I cannot cut or copy or delete because the selection is reset. I am not certain if Opera does this, or if it's gmail, but I don't have the problem when I access gmail with another browser. I searched the settings (of both Opera and gmail) for an option to disable this, but I could not find it.

    Help please, this is driving me nuts...

  • @yorel It's not an Opera feature. Maybe it's an extension?

  • @leocg You are right! It seems that I installed an extension called "Fast Translate", and it was the cause. I removed it, problem gone! Thanks...
