Options page isn't opened correctly when using incognito window

Chrome 36 / Linux

How to reproduce

  1. Open an incognito window (Ctrl + Shift + N)
  2. Click on the ABP logo in order to open the bubble UI
  3. Click on "Options" (several times)

Observed behaviour

The options page is opened in a different (non-incognito) window. So far this is the expected behavior and the only possible way. However...

  1. The window in which the options page opens doesn't get focused.
  2. When you click on "Options" again, another tab is created, instead switching to the tab with the previously opened options page.

Expected behaviour

The options page should be opened via the bubble UI, in the same fashion Chrome does it by itself (e.g. when using the context menu of the ABP icon).

That means in case you are in an incognito window, the options page should be opened in a non-incognito window focusing that window. And if the window, the options page would be shown in, already has a tab with the options page, that tab should be focused instead creating a new one.
