You can't.

You could file a bug to request that, but I'm pretty sure it won't go
far. Users should be able to retain a standard interface to the
toolbar buttons and be able to interact with them in a consistent way.

The button’s context menu is a very important part (50%) of the extension’s functionality, and alien items are totally undesired there. I can’t use popup instead because pressing the button (via left click) is used for a different purpose (the first 50% of the extension’s functionality). Thanks.
