How do I stop highlighting with every tap?

For some reason, every time I tap a word on a webpage today, it highlights it and shows Google search results at the bottom of the page. This is incredibly annoying when I’m trying to read stories online, and it repeatedly happens every time I scroll down. Normally you have to hold your finger on a word for a second for it to highlight.

Is there some flag that I can disable to stop this from happening? I can’t find anything in the settings.

Edit: After testing it some more, it doesn’t seem to happen on every website. It’s happening on Xenforo (popular forum software), Reddit, and YouTube, but not on Twitter or this forum.
