Tabs bar disappears

  • Re: Empty tabs bar (all tabs disappearing)


    I found (probably) the same bug in my 1.15.1147.47 (Stable channel) (32-Bit) installation on Windows 7.

    Reproducible with the following steps:

    • Vivaldi window maximized
    • Have a tab stack
    • Open a link from within this tab stack by using "Right click > Open in new tab" or simply by using the mouse-wheel click
    • Close the recently opened tab

    Result: Tabs bar disappears

    My way to restore the tabs bar: Change window size by using the "undo maximize" button (don't know the correct name... the button between minimize and close in the window buttons in the top right corner 🙂 )

    This also happens when I deactivate all extensions.

    Thank you for all the work on Vivaldi, I love it! 🙂

  • @ulm same for me empty tabs bar. My workaround is to go in the settings panel and by unticking and ticking again the show tabbar option.

  • @ulm Unable to reproduce here. I tried disabling Settings, Tabs, Tab Features, Tab Stacking, Open Tabs in Current Stack, but still cannot reproduce it.

    A shortcut can be assigned to Toggle the Tab Bar in Settings, Keyboard, View, Tab Bar, to speed up the workaround.

    Are you using Native Windows in Settings, Appearance?

  • Same issue is happening to me intermittently on 2.3.1440.48 (Stable channel) (64-Bit).
    I already tried between native window setting on and off but it happens with both settings.


    • Vivaldi open
    • have several tab stacks
    • open a link from within a stack with middle click
    • jumping into and using the tab
    • closing this tab from the tab stack
      -> all tabs disappear/turn invisible

    if i then STRG+T to open an empty new tab all other tabs become visible again.

    Addons used:

    • The Camelizer
    • HTTPS Everywhere
    • Lastpass
    • Magic Actions for Youtube
    • Proxy SwitchyOmega
    • Session Buddy
    • The Great Suspender
    • uBlock Origin

    @Tetsuo Session Buddy and The Great Suspender may be messing with the tab bar.

  • I am also experiencing this issue. Session Buddy and The Great Suspender are not the cause as I do NOT have these extensions.

  • Same here on 2.3.1440.48 (Stable channel) Only addon I use is AdBlock.

  • Also seeing this issue on latest release in Linux, no addons. It's obnoxious enough that I've disabled tab stacks and come back a few times.

  • Same here on 2.3.1440.61 (Stable channel) (64-bit). It is very annoying that I have to resize window to make tabs display again.

  • @zeekozhu My extension:

    • AdGuard AdBlocker
    • Augury
    • GitHub Hovercard
    • LastPass
    • Octotree
    • Raindrop
    • Sourcegraph
    • Tampermonkey
    • Vimium
    • Wappalyzer
    • Saladict

  • Tabs disappeared and resizing don't help. I had a youtube video opened in full screen and I pressed "Cmd + T" to create a new tab. After that, I can't see the tab bar anymore. I also tried to disable/enable it in the browser settings but nothing helped. Window resizing cannot fix the problem also.

    Vivaldi 2.8.1664.43 (Stable channel) (64-bit) for Mac

  • @kivagant And what about restarting the browser?

  • @potmeklecbohdan , restarting didn't help also. I googled some workaround but forgot how exactly I returned them back.

    @kivagant Did you try cmd+F11?
