Yea, and I see everyone from Google Community is running to let us know what it is and how to fix it.   No support for anything anymore.

Let's start with a screen-shot so we can see what you are referring to.

This is the error. How do I fix it? Always pops up when scrolling

Thanks for the pic.  A bit more context would have been nice, but I'll assume that shows up in the middle of the window on top of whatever is being displayed.
 
Does it only appear when viewing a message (not when looking at the Inbox or another label)?
 
You say it appears when you start to scroll.  What (if anything) makes it go away?
 
What browser are you using?   What other browsers have you tried?
 
Does it happen in an incognito window (Chrome) or private browsing (Firefox)?

It happens on the gmail app on my iPhone 8. I noticed that two messages were not sending while I had a perfect internet connection and then this error box comes up and it’s like the app is not connected to the internet to be able to send or receive messages.

Removing and re-adding the gmail account fixed this problem for me.

So support just ABANDONED this thread? I’m not deleting and reinstalling my email account. I’ll give even more detail:

I was typing an email and in the middle I typed the following parenthetical: “Tessa (Tessie? I’ve not met her!)” and IMMEDIATELY received the black Error pop up. As though it was a grammatical suggestion. Every word I typed after that produced the black box but clicking on it did nothing. 

I “sent” the email but the circle representing me as sender kept spinning blue around the outside. Black box repeatedly popping up but when I tried tapping on it I merely opened whatever previous email was under my finger when I tapped the box. Useless. 

So I copied the body of the email and removed the offending syntax and hit send. SHOCKINGLY - same error pops up and now TWO emails are spinning as unsent. I hard closed the app and reopened. The spinning has stopped but I cannot trust that these were ever sent because I closed the app WHILE THEY WERE TRYING, not after they were successful. So now, with this important and time sensitive email I have to risk looking like a moron who sends things THREE TIMES or worse, call someone to ask did you get my email all because Google refuses to admit either they randomly stop sending email in the iOS app or they have non-interactive pop ups that arrive for no good reason? Fantastic.

My wife had luck with copying the content, turning off her iPad and turning it back on again.

Google thinks subscribers can provide tech support.  Sometimes they can, but Google needs to post fixes to problems like this.  I called Apple (the error box appears on my iPad and nowhere else).  They knew nothing about this.  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling my gmail app.  That did not work.  Of course I made a Google search and just found other people with the same problem with no one knowing a fix.  Is there a way to signal this gigantic corporation that they need to provide some resource that deals with the inevitable bugs in their systems.  I usually use social media to do this, but with Google I am stumped.
