turn off highlight text 'Start thread' pop-up chat
Yeah, surprised that this is the only post requesting this? Very irritating to have a little pop-up appear right where I'm working constantly. Even if I was collaborating, 99% of the time I wouldn't need it right then.
I've managed to work around this by adding a filter in uBlock Origin that prevents the popups from appearing.
Hopefully there aren't any other annotation buttons that I'm blocking :)
I was able to get this to stop appearing by using Adblock in Chrome to block it. Right-click the popup > Adblock > block this ad
Hope this helps
I just found repl, was excited to use it, but I can't see the context of where I'm selecting due to this dumb "Start Thread" popup. I'm going to try the ad blocker suggested below and if that doesn't work, I'm out. There are other environments out there.
Edit: Adblock didn't work for me, for some reason.
