Manage Favorite - Hide/remove gear Icon on web client

The gear icon is sending my users into the edit view form (inbox.view). I can't have that and I don't see how to disable or hid it (9.31 app 9.35 web). Found one post telling me to edit the systext table but the Fav/dashboard are fine, it's the edit I can't have. they are overwriting global views and making a mess of my system. :-(
