Bug Description

When I am selecting a word in Calibre Book Viewer and pressing the lookup/search selected word, it is going its job as expected. Using google dictionary, it is showing the meaning of the word. So far, so good. Now, this right pane is open. Next, when I am selecting a word or a sentence to bookmark or say highlight, auto-request is getting sent to the lookup thing. But I have not pressed the lookup button in the context toolbar that pops up. Because of this auto-request, after some time google is blocking me suspecting I am a robot for obvious reason. Until and unless and pressing the lookup button, this thing should not get activated. Just selecting word should activate lookup.

I am using Calibre 5.0.1 (Windows 64 bit version) in Windows 10 machine. I was reading an epub file.
