There should be an option to remove the pop-up option for bookmarks, highlights and notes. Every time my finger slips when turning a page, I get one of those annoying popups. I was able to remove the pop-up for dictionaries which popped up every time my finger slipped, but I had to delete the dictionary. I don't need bookmarks and highlights, but cannot remove this option.

The pop-up is appearing because you're pressing and holding your finger on the page too long. You didn't say what model of Kindle you have, but I assume it's a touchscreen model. You just tap on the screen to turn the page, so you probably need to practice that so you have a lighter touch.

Sounds like you need to practice with a touch screen. I have the Paperwhite and I don't have any problems with it. You would have to touch the screen at the top in the right corner for the bookmarks pop up to come up. Not sure how a finger would slip doing this.

Do have the "zones" in your mind's eye when you touch the screen? The top (I'm estimating) 1/4 inch brings up the menu. The left 1/2 inch, all the way up & down (below that 1/4 inch) is "back" a page. The rest of the screen is "forward" page.

It does sound like either you're long-touching (which on touch-screens is a command change), and/or you're tapping where you don't mean to.
