42.7.2246.114996 Fullscreen button missing then launching Opera in landscape mode

  • Yesterday I noticed that the fullscreen button in Opera was missing and earlier today I figured out it was because I had my phone in landscape mode (laying down). If I turn my phone to portrait mode (standing up) and back again or if I launch Opera in portrait mode and then switch to landscape the fullscreen button appears.

    Reproduction: hold your phone in landscape mode and open Opera.

    Result: the fullscreen button is not visible.

    Expected result: the fullscreen button should appear as if you launched Opera in portrait mode and rotated your phone 90 degrees.

    Android version: 7.0
    Phone model: HTC 10
    Opera version 42.7.2246.114996

  • What fullscreen button?

  • The button that hides the bottom bar. Only visible in landscape mode in bottom right corner. Four arrows pointing out in different directions.

  • I can see it here.

  • Tested a little more, still happens, but not if Opera is already running in the background. This time it looked like the button was visible a short moment then I started Opera but then disappeared.
