Disabling Export Button on Issue Navigator

I've seen two other solutions (Here and here), but the Javascript solution still shows an arrow and the menu populates properly.  I'm running JIRA 5.2.8, which is a little newer than the aforementioned post. 

Does anyone know a simple alternative or an adjustment to the JS?  If someone could go into more detail about which modules to disable in order to prevent any kind of bulk export that would also be a solution.


Thank you!

This can be done with CSS in the announcement banner.

<style type="text/css"> 

/*This part hides the export button on Issue Navigator */
div.saved-search-operations ul.operations li:nth-child(2)

/*this will hide it on individual issues*/
div.toolbar-split-right ul.pluggable-ops li:nth-child(2)


Valid for JIRA 6.4.11, I suppose the html elements/tags are subject to change with future releases but same concept should work.
