Making extension always opened once the user clicked in the extension icon, only close when the extension icon is clicked
I want my extension, once it is opened (clicked on the icon), to only be closed when the user click on my extension icon , like it happens when you have developer mode on and 'Inspect Pop-up', when it's in developer mode you can only close your extension after you click in the icon of it in the chrome. I would like to make it visible until the user click on the extension icon (not any click outside) to close it but without having to have the developer mode on. or if this is not possible I would like to at least once my extension is clicked, make my extension active so it can deal with the chrome.webRequest.onBeforeRequest.addListener() Thanks in advance.
