These look like normal right-click button actions. Just use your left mouse button to select and this will not appear.

Then perhaps you have an addon/extension that is putting clickable links in the text?

or perhaps you have a bad MOUSE.

Those can also be from holding down the control key while clicking or a bad mouse wheel.

Or you flipped your buttons on your mouse. The settings can be changed in the control panel on a widows computer.

Computers only follow instructions.
This is a case of user error.


Cable ties should hold it

Before you buy a mouse I suggest you check your mouse settings. I suspect left hand mouse has been enabled.
