    Do you have a third party mail app installed? Have you simply checked the settings to look for a toggle to turn off the floating action icon for email?
    You are going to have to give more details. Typically with a floating icon on android you can Press and hold it and an X will show up at the bottom of the screen where you can drag it to to get rid of it. But it will come back if you get email, until you go into the email app settings and turn it off.
    Have you attempted any of this?
    All you have basically told us is, you have the icon and it's annoying. What troubleshooting have you done.

    I have checked the settings and there is nothing to turn off related to email. I have also checked if there is a email app installed but there isn't.

    Specs on the Android box? What make? Model? Etc. You are going to need to provide more info if you want someone to be able to give you an answer.

    Hi i'm having the same issue with the circle in the same spot. I also have the same box. Mine seems to be trigered by kodi addons. It changes its picture and displays numbers at times. The only way to turn it off is by rebooting the box. It comes back as soon as I run any kodi addon. It truly is annoying. I can't click on it either. Hope someone can help with this.

    I think this question would be better suited to be asked in the KODI forums since it's their addon causing the issue

    If you press and hold it, what happens, not just tapping it, but pressing and holding?

    I have a feeling this is something to do with ES File Explorer. The circle has been bugging me all week. Saw one pop up on my phone and it was ES File Explorer. So if you have that, try uninstalling and let me know how you get on.

    I have set three of these up the first two were ok on the third the circle appeared.It looked like it was a problem with Kodi.I did what you suggested and removed ES File explorer and this cured the problem.I am wondering now if it was a setting or a bug has the first two worked and are still working with ES File explorer installed. Thanks for the fix it has saved me a lot of time and effort.

    Had this problem with kodi on fire stick but found that if you go into Es file explorer then go under settings on left,click on logger floating widget and uncheck box it should remove it. Hope this helps!

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This started tonight on a new Kodi install and w/ FireTV Stick remote I couldn't maneuver to the right side of the screen to click on it, press & hold or anything. And the image in the circle kept changing so no clues there. But it's gone now so... thanks again!

    I had the same icon silently getting on my nerves. I eventually traced it back to Es Explorer. Its a notification symbol of sorts that logs certain files/ addons. It apoarently for use on mobiles where it can simply be pressed to reveal the notification. To remove it from your firestick/ tv screen. Open Es, click on and open the logger folder which is along with all the other folder icons that are on the front page. Give it a little time fir the logs to appear Then go right down to the bottom panel and press clear. I've only been using it for a couple of days trying to find the best build for kodi on my firestick and im not computor literate at all so i cant guide you through it in technical terms too much but once cleared a dialogue box appeared with three options and one open option with the symbol, 2 of the options were hi lighted, i un checked them and the symbal just disapeard. I then re ticked the middle option and i have'nt seen it since
    If anyone can share a link to get the most stable copy of a good uk tv build for the fire stick 2 it would be very much appreciated.

    And i've no sooner ended the bloody SA and someone has already enlightened you haha. Although i could not right click using the fire stick remot.
