Remove Tab Spacing ALWAYS [VB-8802]

  • Currently there is the option, "Remove Tab Spacing in Maximized Windows." This is problematic for vertically maximized windows that are not horizontally maximized, or actually any windows that touch the top of the screen. There should really be an option to simply remove the tab spacing everywhere. I don't see any point in ever having the spacing, and it causes a great deal of frustration for vertically maximized windows. Instead of having infinite vertical space to click on the tab, now you have to be very accurate and hit a small target. In Chrome, it's easy to resolve this simply by telling the browser to use the system window border instead of its own (at least in Linux), and then disabling the window border for Chrome. Unfortunately, this does not work in Vivaldi. Check out in my screenshot how Chromium displays the desired behavior, while Vivaldi does not. [img][/img]

    Opera 12.17 has a setting for Chrome Integration Drag (opera:config#UserPrefs|ChromeIntegrationDragArea), but it still suffers from the same problem.

    The purpose of those few pixels above the tabs in a window that is not maximised is so that users can grab the window to undock it.

    I can see that it would be useful to remove those few pixels from an unmaximised window too, as there are other ways to undock a window with the keyboard.

  • hello, here's what I did for that "problem" of space which is dedicated to the little bar for grouped tabs. so I moved that little bar indicator too:

    ! /* hack space above tabs */ {
    padding-top: 1px !important;
    .tab-group-indicator {
    margin-top: 4px;
    padding-top: 0px !important;

    Note that my tabs are on top just as yours and the option Remove Tab spacing is unchecked
