This happened on Beta for me as well, thought this is a Beta specific issue. Seems like its not.

For me, the blue-dot re-appears after an idle time on the same session.

Also, was able to reproduce in en.wiki just now

Yeah, I'm also seeing them on en.wp now.
Another thing, since I'm here: when I close the pop-up, I don't really expect having to click again on the button to use the link/cite tool.

(Yet another thing... on Office wiki I think I see the link popup but not the blue dot?)

Commit is deployed, seems to have fixed the issue. Not closing this because I'm planning to investigate @Elitre's officewiki issue when I get back later.

@Elitre: Can you still reproduce that issue? I saw the blue dot...

I just saw this on English Wikipedia. Doesn't seem to be resolved.

Actually, that might just have been my first time seeing it on enwiki. It's likely fixed after all.
