When I choose 'copy link address' from context menu or just select URL text, following popup dialog is automatically shown.

enter image description here

It is annoying for me because this popup dialog grabs keyboard focus from current working application. How do I disable this popup?

I'm using following version.

Description:    Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
Release:    12.04
Codename:   precise

This must be a thing with firefox. Since i use same 12.04.2 ubuntu, but not firefox. I use google chrome and i dont see this behaviour. – Naai Sekar Feb 16 '13 at 14:27

I suspect that you have an addon to Firefox that is causing this behavior. I'm using Ubuntu 13.04, and I see nothing of the sort, nor do I remember seeing anything like that with any previous version of Ubuntu. You might check your addons (Tools > Addons or Ctrl+Shift+A in Firefox).
