URL overlay top left, how to get rid of it?

  • What is that, how did it get there, how do I get rid of it?

    Probably just hit a key that activated this by accident?


  • Vivaldi Translator

    I have never seen that before.
    Does it only occur on the Vivaldi forums?
    If you right-click it, do you get a context menu like you would from right-clicking a website?
    Could it be an extension that put it there?

  • Damn I thought it was easy, its in every tab, not showing in private tabs. Installed a new extension "referer control" but removed that already, otherwise no changes, this just showed up. No special context menu, reacts as if its part of the website but is in the way if I want to access stuff thats covered by it.

  • If it doesn't show in private tabs, that certainly makes an extension seem the most probable culprit.

    Maybe it was an older extension you already had that updated? You could try turning them all off, and then on again one by one to see if you can figure it out.

  • Ok I found it, apparently it installed another extension "show referer" which was causing this.
