I am looking for a browser extension (ideally Chrome) to disable the pop-up window when I click on a Google +1.

Hey that means I can recommend Adblock Plus twice today!

AdBlock Plus (ABP) is a browser extionsion for pretty much any browser; here's a few details:

  • Open source: Yes.
  • Gratis: Yes.
  • No 'dial home' features: auto-updating is the norm for Firefox extensions; that can be disabled in Firefox; Adblock Plus also has filter lists that can be set to auto-update but that can be disabled as well. Other than those two caveats as far as I know ABP doesn't have any dial home functions.
  • A simple GUI allowing adding new/editing existing regex'es in the browser: I'd say it is pretty simple and easy.
  • Whitelist regexes: Yep white listing is done
  • Ability to fire certain blacklist/whitelist regexes based on the main document's address (e.g. allowing Google APIs on one site and disallowing it on others). hmmm... ah Yes you can.

Specifically in your case; to block the Google+ bubble just add a custom filter: ##.gc-bubbleDefault like this: enter image description here
