In the attached image, VA is suggesting me to autocomplete "std::map::at" to operator=. Ignoring this irrelevant suggestion, I continue to type '('. VA is annoyingly ignoring my typing and inserts 'operator=' instead.

I would expect this to happen only if I hit something like 'Enter' 'Tab'. instead VA is forcing me to hit the Escape button which interrupts my typing.

This sort of thing happens quite a lot.

How can I fix this?

For accepting a listbox, VA respects the IDE setting:

IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Member List Commit Characters = {}[]().,:;+-*/%&|^!=<>?@#
so if you edit this list of characters to remove () then these will no longer accept a listbox.

If you cannot edit this setting then it is probably because you have set:

IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> IntelliSense -> Disable IntelliSense = True

so if you enable IDE intellisense you will be able to edit this list of characters, and then you can disable it again.

I am happy to try and help work out why the listbox has the wrong items as well, if you want. If you place the caret into the variable "color" can you then look at VA's Context and Navigation fields. These are normally found at the top of the editor window and are where the Alt-M list appears from. This will show what type VA thinks this variable is. Obviously if the type is wrong then the listbox will also be wrong.

If the type information is wrong, what happens when you try Alt-G on "color"? Where does VA take you?
