I was asked to file this bug report and it is based on this tweet: https://twitter.com/GreatChainsLink/status/1272394265365221376
LibreOffice does not display the context menu to remove a hyperlink, but rather suggests to correct a typo. See https://twitter.com/GreatChainsLink/status/1272394265365221376/photo/1 for example.
I also ran into this issue before where I had to click on tiny dot of the URL because LibreOffice saw every word as typo and did not give me the option to remove the hyperlink. However, even the screenshot was done in 18.104.22.168 I was not able to reproduce it right now.
OS: Win 7, SP1, x64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a URL with a word that LibreOffice underlines red as typo (eg. https://myfriendbiggusdickus.com)
2. Right click on the typo word to remove the hyperlink
LibreOffice wants to correct a typo in a URL and does not show you the context menu to remove the hyperlink.
As said: I ran into this before, but could not reproduce it. There is a screenshot of it done in 22.214.171.124: https://twitter.com/GreatChainsLink/status/1272394265365221376/photo/1
Ignore the typo and show you only the context menu to manipulate the hyperlink
Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce
User Profile Reset: No
Version: 126.96.36.199 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 6.1 Service Pack 1 Build 7601; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: win;
Gebietsschema: de-AT (de_AT); UI-Sprache: de-DE
At least in current master this seems to work.
Thanks for reporting.
Confirm this on Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: 747b5d0ebf89f41c860ec2a39efd7cb15b54f2d8
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3;

Tee way you can reproduce is this:
1. Insert a link with a word that is incorrect and need spelling to sugest you something
2. Expect: Remove hyperlink option. Result: NO option to remove hyperlink.
Somewhere is a condition that if there is a mistake the hyperlink options should not be displayed. The hyperlink options should be there if in the case of text with mistakes. Everytime we have an hyperlink.
