Browser becomes unmaximized when I try to adjust vertical scrollbar

  • On several occasions, when I tried to scroll the screen by adjusting the scroll bar on the right side of the window, Opera has become un-maximized and moves the window. I probably grabbed the edge of the window by accident, but would not normally expect this behavior even in this case. I can understand grabbing or double-clicking the title bar to have the window un-maximize, but it is extremely annoying to have the window become un-maximized when all I am trying to do is scroll the window. I tried doing the same thing with other applications (MS-Word, for example), and they do not behave this way.

    Is there a setting somewhere that controls this? I could not find it.

  • @mitch-c There is no such setting.

    I couldn't reproduce the problem here.

  • It's weird. I can't seem to make it happen now, but it did happen numerous times earlier today—I know I wasn't dreaming.
    Go figure.

  • Normally double-cicking on the title bar of a window (which in Opera would mean an empty area of the tab bar) should maximize or restore (unmaximize) a window, and of course there's a keyboard shortcut or the actual Maximize/Restore button; that's about it.
