 I'm open to discussing this, but I created a branch for deleting this.
 This patch permanently disables (sets selectable=false) the tab queue, as
 well - the tab queue should not be enabled if the app doesn't have the
 SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW permission. We can delete the Settings entry for the
 tab queue, as well - if that is preferred.

 Branch `26826`.
