Showing macOS App Menu Breaks the UI in Fullscreen Mode

  • When Opera is in fullscreen mode, moving the mouse to the top of the screen to show the macOS App menu causes the entire UI to abruptly shift down and the web page layout to change. Safari shifts its UI down smoothly, sliding it over the web page. Firefox has a fixed UI but allows the App menu to slide over it instead.

  • @kathampy Not on mine, running 10.14.4 … everything shifts down normally with no layout change.

    Sometimes, for reasons I have not (and cannot be bothered to fathom) the space for the Apple menu-bar is left at the top. Others have complained about that in another thread, but as far as I'm concerned, quickly running the mouse up there and down again solves that.

    Though I'm not someone who thinks that my time and attention is so precious that even that second's worth of distraction is a potential deal-breaker.

  • @xiamenese The shift down itself is abrupt without any animation. The web page contents have to be susceptible to height changes or they won't be affected.

    My MacBook and its software is a work of art and anything that doesn't meet that standard is garbage and will be deleted from it.
