Bug Description

Typically, when a touch selection is active, a quick menu with selectall/copy/paste options is displayed.
Per design request, we need to hide that menu when one of its actions is tapped, only to show it again when the selection is tapped again. We need the touch selection controller to expose an additional method for that.

It can’t have started happening earlier than 2016-03-11, which is when touch selection landed in the browser :)
That said, I’m aware that this is annoying for the common use case, and we need this additional API in oxide to fix it in the browser.
