Entering a single quote character gives a strange pop-up screen

  • 2180

When I enter a single quote character a strange Duolingo pop-up screen appears. This has only started happening today and appears to be happening in all the languages I am doing and even in the search box in this discussion forum. Is it just me or is anybody else experiencing this?

Hm - it looks as though it has something to do with Evernote Web Clipper as I have noticed the same problem in another application now. Strange it should just start happening today. Anyway, not a Duolingo-specific problem so please choose to ignore.

Just in case anybody is interested, my problem was indeed caused by Evernote Web Clipper. Somehow the keyboard shortcuts had been switched on and the keyboard short cut for Start Web Clipper is ' (single quote). Now that I have turned off the keyboard shortcuts I don't have the problem.
