Empty bar showing on the bottom / Pressing screen off place 1cm vertically

  • Hello,

    I have a weird bug on my Opera mobile on Android.

    I'm getting an empty bar on the bottom of the browser randomly and it's as if the whole page has been shifted upwards because of it.

    So when I press on any part of the screen within the browser it's as if I'm clicking the area about 1 cm above the area which I pressed (the same size as the empty bar that shows on the bottom of the screen).

    I have Opera updated and everytime I update I hope this issue to be fixed but it hasn't.

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    How can I troubleshoot it?

    Thank you!

  • Anyone?

  • I can confirm this bug. Absolutely annoying.

    Seems not related to any particular Opera or Android version.

    Only I noticed that the empty bar appears after switching from Opera to different app and then back to Opera. I need to kill Opera and reopen to fix.

    Important is the screen is not only moved up, but it's only rendered up. The action areas (links, buttons, inputs...) are working as if the page was rendered correctly.

  • @fiisha happy to see I'm not the only one with this issue (although I'm sad you're also suffering with this).

    Did you manage to find any solution to this problem? Do you know how we can open a bug fix request with Opera itself?

  • @s3nd41 Just use the Report a problem tool in Opera for Android

  • Did so, it seems the development team is already aware of this and the issue has been fixed on the beta version. Should make it to the browser on the next release. Thank you!
