Description of the issue:
I am having the same issue as here:
When I click in the tab, it is highlighted, but if I click in the upper part (just near to above limit of the screen), it takes to foreground any background app open in windows; doesn’t happen on edge nor chrome. I’m on latest 1.60.96 Brave.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Just have to open brower with several tabs and click on any of them in the upper part - doesn’t select but it acts as browser weren’t maximized and I were clicking in the background app.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 11, Brave 1.60.96 Additional Information:
I’ve asked some other team members as and we cannot reproduce this on any Brave build. It seems a bit obscure — is there anything different with the way you’re display(s) are set up? Additionally, it looks like you uploaded a video recording of the behavior before but its now deleted. Can you please reshare a recording of the behavior so I can see it in action?
Basically on Nightly (and possibly Beta) where the tabs are larger, if you have your cursor at the very top of the screen and click, it won’t select the tab. So here on Release, clicking with cursor there would switch to the tab (talking as far up as you can go)
But on Nightly with the bigger tabs, if you click very top edge of the computer screen, it doesn’t select the tab when you click. Instead it’s clicking as if you’re hitting the border of the window or whatever is behind it.
@Saoiray I see what you mean about clicking above the tab not selecting the tab… This is because, as you noted, you’re not selecting the tab itself you’re selecting the boarder of the browser window — which is why when double clicked it changes the size of the window as shown in your video.
However, I do not see what OP is sayin about selecting “behind” the tab/window:
With the exception of selecting something in the background as OP is seeing, the browser is functioning properly — on macOS, this behavior is exactly the same as there was always space above the tabs:
It may be more jarring for Windows users though. I’ll let the team know that this is a consideration they might want to work on.
Well, it was not perfectly explained as english is not my mother language, but it’s as @Saoray sais; upper part of the tab doesn’t select the tab but clicks on what’s behind the window. I’m using a black theme so I didn’t see the border, but it’s not here on regular build, and in my opinion it’s not useful.
I’m not sure how to use this forum. Looks like I may have put my comment in the wrong spot. I meant to put it under a post I myself created in recent weeks. Hopefully I can locate that post and put my comment under the right one.
