Fedora 24 - Gnome - Mystery Box Hides my windows.

I don't know why it appears - but sometimes an empty box appears in the lower right hand side of the screen. It is 'above' all the other windows so it covers them. I tried xkill to remove it but xkill won't make it go away. The only way I have found to make it go away is to close all the windows open and log out - when I log back in it is gone until it shows up again.

Anyone know what causes this box ?

At firs it seemed like it was the extension that places a nice Fedora logo on your background - but that would be 'below' all the other windows. I removed that extension but the box still appears.
