Empty tabs bar (all tabs disappearing)

  • Hello,

    I've faced the following issue a few times and it seems to be a small bug in Vivaldi. I've found a "workaround" to solve it temporarily but, for me, this isn't a normal browser behavior.
    When I close a tab from a tabs stack, the entire tabs bar gets empty (see picture).

    The only way I've found to get all the tabs back in the tab bar is to click on the setting gear and, under the Tabs section, I uncheck and check again the "Show tabs bar" option.
    So, the bug isn't too annoying because of that quick solution but I think this could maybe be fixed someday?

    FYI : Windows 10 64bits with Vivaldi 1.14.1077.60

    Thank you very much in advance and viva Vivaldi! because I like it 😉

    Have a nice day.

    @ornorm Have you file a bug report?

    That said, yours is the only report I have ever seen, of such a curious effect. Do you by any chance run any extensions?

    Oops... I love extensions.

  • I have the same issue, though it happens randomly, not just when I close a tab.

  • Still an issue for me too. Haven't recognised any pattern yet.

  • @JerDoggMcKoy The last post from @Ayespy asked about extensions.
    The missing info was that this problem is <likely> caused by one (or more) of those and you should disable them to check this.

    If you have not enabled them for incognito - then retest your problem in an incognito window; otherwise disable ALL extensions and then restart Vivaldi to test.

    Note: Rather than restart to workaround problem, you can activate show/hide tab bar as a keyboard shortcut OR as mouse gesture.

  • @TbGbe
    Opening and closing a few tabs with mouse gestures usually solves the problem for me. But indeed, it is a very frustrating bug.

  • @Nekomajin I didn't mean using mouse to open/close Tabs; I meant using a gesture to Show/Hide the whole TAB BAR.

  • @TbGbe
    I get that. I just wanted to offer an alternative.

    May be the disappearing tab bar bug is fixed in 2.4 1468.4 Snapshot.

    @Gwen-Dragon I've seen someone on the discord chat room mention that they experienced disappearing tabs on the latest snapshot.

  • Vivaldi Team

    We're looking into it. Using a keyboard shortcut to open a new tab should also bring the tab bar back.
