Confluence text select popup disable

In Confluence, when I select some text, a little popup containing "Quote in comment" and "Create JIRA issue" appears. This popup is annoying as it obsecures the text underneath it. I often use text selection to mark a location in the document.

How can I disable the popup (without disabling JavaScript)?

Disable "Page Highlight Actions" Plugin from System-Add-Ons.

Is this configurable on a per user basis? I looked under Settings ( and don't see any system add ons configuration.

No, it is not a per user setting. The option I referred to is in the admin section can be disabled by a confluence administrator and will disable the popup for everyone.
