In Chrome, every time I click on something like Select: All, I get a popup div from Gmail that says

Original Text: XXX

where XXX is the list of options to the right of select.

What is this? How do I get rid of it?

  • I meant the development version of Chrome (which thends to be more quirky). You can tell by looking at the version number - current stable version is 5.0.375.99. There's also a beta version which will be a higher version no. than this.
