How can I hide the private browsing mask icon?

Posted

This is likely an unusual question, since whenever I search for this I find people asking why they CAN'T see the private browsing mask, though I have a reason.

I wanted to have a custom private browsing indicator that matched a different icon set I'm using, since the usual purple box with a mask in it stood out,. Originally I just assumed if I had the different Private browsing indicator on the toolbar, the original would just disappear, and it of course didn't. I promise I'm not entirely crazy by wanting to remove the icon, I just wanted a different icon fitting more fitting for how I've customized my browser.

[Edit] Never mind, I'm just an absentminded idiot, apparently. I found the actual option in the menus to hid it in order to resolve this issue, and I don't know how to/if you can delete questions, so... Just ignore this one.

Oh, you use Classic Theme Restorer. Otherwise, I was going to say "what menu?"

I would very much like it deleted. It really doesn't need to exist since I was just naive by not noticing the menu to disable what I was asking about, so I basically asked a question too soon since I found the solution shortly after. Thank you very much.
