Inactive zone at the bottom of any page when «hide address bar» is enabled

  • Steps to repro:

    1. Enable «hide address bar when scrolling» in Settings.
    2. Go to https://blogs.opera.com/mobile/ (or any site with some active elements at the bottom of the page) and scroll to the bottom of the page.
    3. Try to tap «Terms of Use» link (for the site above or any active element/link in other cases).
      Result: nothing happens.

    I shot a video to visualize the bug:

    Compare the shadow animations at the top and bottom. As you can see, there is a gap at the bottom between the shadow and Opera's navigation panel. That gap is the exact dead zone.

    The bug is present only when Opera panels auto-hiding (any of the two variants) is turned on.

    My specs:
    ARMv8 SoC
    5.5" 1920x1080
    Near-stock Android 8.1

  • Seems to be working here on my Moto Z3 Play.

  • @leocg I have an assumption that that's because you have on-screen navigation bar, rather than separate navigation buttons.
    Need someone to test this with buttons under the screen and 16:9 aspect ratio.
