Hides the page action for a given tab.

hide() overrides pattern matching, so the page action will not be shown in the specified tab even if its URL is matched by show_matches.

Syntax

  tabId // integer
)

Parameters

tabId
integer. The ID of the tab for which you want to hide the page action.

  browser.pageAction.hide(tab.id);
});
