Tabs on fullscreen mode (mac OS)

  • Where is my tabs?
    I open fullscreen mode and i don't see it !!
    WTF, Opera?

  • Welcome to Opera forums @Blagochinnov!

    As far as I know, in Full screen what is shown it's just the current website and right click menu.

    Maybe exist an extension to access tabs through right click in Full screen.

    Maybe Ctrl + Tab and / or numbers works for you, despite the keyboard needing.

  • Yes. Opera should/needs to have the ability to see tabs and address bar or at least tabs in full-screen mode on Mac computers. If you just maximize the window by draging or using a windows management app, then it will show just like it on Windows. But if you're on a Mac and you switched to full-screen mode It actually gets placed on its own desktop and your address bar, tabs and bookmarks bar vanish.

  • I always had the tabs and menu in fullscreen mode. Today I updated Opera and macOS and they are gone. There is an option in the menu but it's gray (unclickable). With that small screen I have opera is now not usable anymore. Please help.

  • its annoying not to be able to see my tabs on fullscreen mode.

  • Opera shows the tabs and toolbar by default in full-screen mode, unless you're starting full-screen mode from a web site (for example by full-screening a video).

    Try clicking View -> "Show Toolbar in Full Screen Mode" in case you don't see them.

  • @avi

    Thank you. That did the trick. I don't understand how I missed that before. I was looking allover the place. Thank you again. :yes:

  • Sometimes I can select "Show Toolbar in Full Screen Mode" - Sometimes its greyed out. It's very annoying. I like full screen mode actually without all the tabs...but I think a better implementation would be to show the tabs when the mouse hits the edge of the top screen, and then dissapears when it hovers below.

    Anyway, it's super annoying. It's greyed out, and the only way I know how to fix it, is to restart opera, and then I can select the "Show Toolbar in Full Screen Mode" again.

    I have the same problem and I friggin swear to God I'll go back using Chrome if it's not fixed soon.

  • I have this issue as well. macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Macbook Air.

    I don't understand the point of fullscreen mode without the ability to type in the address bar because it is not there.

    Show toolbar in fullscreen mode is greyed out for me as well. Here is what it looks like when I click on View: 0_1528094321057_Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 1.37.09 AM.png

  • Using Opera Beta. Some updates fix this issue and some break again. After the latest update my tabs dissappeared on full screen mode again.

  • I have this exact same issue still. Come on Opera, this is one of those small bugs that is just super annoying. Please prioritise it. Every-time this happens, I have to re-convince myself to stay with Opera and not switch to Chrome, it's that annoying.

  • Hi,

    I've just updated from v. 55.0.2994.61 to 55.0.2994.56, and menu View -> "Show Toolbar in Full Screen Mode" is enabled again and it works.
    But I can be sure this is because the update required restart or the issue have been fixed (hopefully for good).

  • Problem is still there.

    Extremely annoying. Basically cant use fullscreen mode because i dont have tabs (or address bar), so a lot of my screen is wasted on some osx bars and toolbars.

    Edit: A restart of the browser has fixed the issue, weird but okay lol.
