Hide a button via Announcement Banner

I am using the "JIRA Email This Issue (JETI)" add-on to handle emails.  I want to utilize this rather than Jira's native share button since it saves the emails into the issue.  Being the case, I want to hide the share button.

I want to utilize JavaScript in the announcement banner to achieve this:

<script type='text/javascript'>
AJS.toInit(function() {
    var shareButton = AJS.$("#jira-share-trigger").closest("li"); 


However, the behavior is inconsistent.


It works when:

  • A URL is entered into the browser
  • A refresh (F5) of a entire page.

It does not work when using a link within JIRA:

  • Issue Link
  • Issue search
  • parent link of sub-task (above the Summary)


How can I get the announcement banner to fire every time rather than only at full page refreshes?

It might just be easier to use pure CSS to do this.  At least for JIRA 6.4, something like this should work:

ul#opsbar-jira\.issue\.tools > li:nth-of-type(2) {
