Description of the issue:
Command line Flag “–force-stacked-tab-strip-layout” has stopped working with newly updated version 1.34 (it was working fine with previous version 1.33.106, and still is in one not updated device and versions before).
In my case Brave is run with this command in Target section:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” --disk-cache-dir=r:\Chrome --force-stacked-tab-strip-layout
The Cache folder Flag is used correctly but the Stacked layout is now ignored. I have tried to switch order of Flags but result is just the same.
Also I am not able to downgrade to 1.33.106 - installation package prevents from downgrading and downloaded standalone zip package is not able to run due to “parallel configuration” issue.
The only option is to uninstall and install again which I don’t want to do.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- run Brave with the Flag “–force-stacked-tab-strip-layout”
- open 80+ tabs in single window
- All 80+ are visible and very small in size (hard to read and navigate as names are not visible, hard to move them, easy to accidentally close)
Stacked layout should be visible (only ~20 tabs visible and stack of other tabs at the end or at both ends when browsing in the middle)
