Using chrome.tabs.update with a javascript:-URL does not work either:

1. Load the attached zip file.
2. Visit example.com.
3. Click on the extension button.

Expected:
A message in the page's console, because the addon has the permission to run code in that tab, and updating the URL with javascript: is basically running code in that tab's main page.

Actual:
The following error in the global console:
Unchecked lastError value: Error: Illegal URL: javascript:console.log("tabs.update succesfully injected a javascript:-URL.");
