Disappearing Tabs

Description of the issue:
Disappearing Tabs has been an incessant issue for a long time. It’s more of a problem if you don’t have a second monitor. If you do have a second monitor you can click the “Restore Down” button and make the window wider, which makes the tabs reappear. But if you only have one monitor, you can’t make the windows wider than the width of your monitor. So if you click another tab then the only way to get back to the hidden tab is to type the same URL in another tab and hope the “Switch to Tab” button appears, or open the “Task Manager” and try to find it there.

(Although that “Task Manager” could be improved. Would be great to be able to close tabs from the task manager, and have it show more information. Also it doesn’t even show all the tabs from all the windows. Also I don’t see a keyboard shortcut on the list of keyboard shortcuts that closes all windows, as shutting down or logging off the computer does.)

  1. Open as many tabs as your browser window will show at the same time. Around 100 or more.
  2. Then new tabs do not show up on the right side.
  3. When it’s approaching the limit, there’s a vacant space where a tab was, and then after selecting the previous tab, the vacant space changes to the tab.
  4. Then new tabs are hidden.

Expected result:
On Firefox the tabs scroll horizontally when moving the wheel on the mouse. Something like that perhaps could be a fix for this issue.

Additional Information:
Wouldn’t have to post this if the previous issues could be re-opened. That’s a poor design. Or is the problem that this whole thing is setup as a “forum” and not as a “bug tracker.” … the posts on “forums” are usually called “Topics” as it is here, not “Issue.”

Thank you.

@life777eternal,
Ctrl + Q closes all open windows.

The site is not actually a bug tracker but a place for users to assist each other, receive assistance from us (Brave) or yes, report an issue – but the team doesn’t track things here. They track them on our Github:

We have an open issue to address this and although it hasn’t gotten a ton of attention, it did get its status changed just yesterday so the team is aware of the issue:

Hi @Mattches [Ctrl] + [Q] doesn’t do anything for me on the beta browser. Doesn’t even close one window.

Thanks for the Github info, I hadn’t thought of looking there.

@life777eternal,
Apologies you’re absolutely right – on Windows it will be ctrl + shift + w to close the window.
