Hello there!

I have installed Opera on Kali Linux. However, I have noticed that when I maximise Opera's screen, the three window buttons on the right upper corner are gone. I can't minimise Opera any more and also can't change Opera's screen size.

This is a problem that really only concerns Opera, because with all other applications, I don't have this problem.

My question is: is there a way to get those three buttons back when Opera is maximised?

If not, then I hope that this bug will be fixed soon, because it's really irritating.

    Maximize, or fullscreen mode? Fullscreen mode is supposed to remove everything, while Maximize should have a title bar and window decorations.

      I use XFCE, and all buttons are gone, when window is Maximized. I do not want to go with mouse acros whole screen to taskbar to minimize it, I do not want to go to Menu and click Exit. What's wrong with UI designers these days. Removing basic functionalities which works for decades.

        This is weird, because opera, unlike chrome or chromium, does not have its own csd (client side decorations), so it relies on the window manager of the desktop enviroment for the minimise, maximise, close functions. What window manager are you using?

        Needless to say I have no problem here (debian testing x64 with openbox).

          I have old Fedora 22 in VM, not updating. Only Opera is updating there. Nice couple of versions before, there were all buttons. After some time, only X was visible. Now, nothing is visible. I installed in second VM Fedora 26, complete default XFCE, with latest Opera, and now, only X is visible when maximized.

              No, pure default installation. I didn't found any flag regarding titlebar or buttons.
