Why is this bar appearing in Safari?

Sometimes when I'm typing in (Japanese) a text box in the safari browser, all of a sudden a new thin text window appears in the bottom left corner and my typed text is transfered there. This box has no title or anything, just a minimize icon.

After that I can't type anywhere else. I have to close this text box and the tab I was working on. Only after I open a new tab does this problem to go away. What the heck is going on and how do I stop it?

You can see why I've had trouble googling this >_<

  • Does it happen on specific sites only or on all sites? Are there any plugins installed? If yes, does the problem persist after you disable all of them? – nohillside Dec 21 '11 at 18:21

  • Thanks @Mahnax that is totally the problem. I was looking for that on app stack exchange. I still have no idea how to stop it though. – Slamice Dec 22 '11 at 1:16
