Description

17 years ago
Noted this behavior in 0.9.6 on both Windows 98 and now Linux. Marking OS as
"All" for that reason.

Using CTRL+T shortcut or file-->new-->navigator tab to create many tabs first  
 squishes down to the size of the corner image (the little bookmark-style
thing). After it can't squish down any farther, creating new tabs pushes things
at the right side of the entire browser off the "edge" of the window
(effectively removing them from view). 

Closing several tabs returns the browser to full view, as does resizing the
window to account for the "extra" space. It makes creating new tabs, resizing
the window, and deleting tabs incredibly slow. Using file-->close tab seems to
return the main browser toolbar section to regular size (but not the browser
content section or the lower section with the quick buttons, document status,
offline/online status and security button). Using CTRL+W does not have the same
effect.

How many tabs to reproduce the behaviour of course depends on window size. In my
890x975 browser window, this begins at 32 tabs. Will attach screen shot.
