Weird Tabs Behavior



  • Hello! I've been using the Vivaldi browser for quite some time and the bug I'm about to describe is a thing for me for a long time. So I decided to stop "enjoying" it and ask for help.

    Look at this picture:

    As you can see there is a gap between tabs. This gap might grow and might disappear but if I close all the tabs to the right of the gap and open a new one it will appear after the gap again. If I relaunch the browser it will get back to normal (no gap).

    Alas, when I have 2+ sessions of the browser open it is not convenient to relaunch the browser since I will lose the session so the bug is growing on me. I can't say what exactly provoke such a behavior but it looks like I've seen it when I have a pinned tab(s). Also, I have the browser window to occupy exactly half the screen estate.

    @ixsci I have never seen it, but I have seen other posts about it. Which version of Vivaldi are you using on which version of Windows? Try pressing F11 twice to work-around the issue.


    Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit • Snapshot 1.15.1137.3 (64-bit)



  • @ixsci There are old reports of this, but the most recent I found has some "workarounds"

    See https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/22256/empty-tab-slots/



  • @pesala I use the latest Win10 (Fall creator update) with the following Vivaldi:
    Vivaldi 1.11.917.39 (Stable channel) (32-bit)
    Revision 161e1fce0e1b4aa6e95de8aa8b0e5cbc11cd8e8b-

    The F11 workaround helps, thank you.

    @ixsci That is an old version. Why haven't you updated to Vivaldi 1.14 yet?



  • @pesala That's a good question (mainly because it didn't ask me to update and I didn't check myself). Just updated, will test it for a while and report here afterwards.
