I am using latest version of MacOs Big Sur (11.2.3).

There seems the vertical tab not working in full screen mode. 

When i am making full screen mode it switch back to horizontal tab mode automatically.

 

is anyone facing this issue ?

Hi,
this is not an issue/problem since the vertical tabs support for full screen mode simply hasn't been implemented yet.

comment from an Edge developer:
"vertical tabs aren't enabled on any platform in full-screen yet since we're still determining, among other things, the interaction that would make the most sense. "

there have been changes to the vertical tabs, this is the most recent one:

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/awesome-new-feature-vertical-tabs-now-hide-title-...

Vertical tabs in fullscreen mode were working a few months ago, however they were a bit buggy. In a frustrating update, the feature was entirely disabled in fullscreen mode again and is still fully disabled. I believe the ability to use vertical tabs in full-screen mod was probably a bug before with how they disabled it on Mac, letting you re-enable vertical tabs in full-screen mode when you weren't supposed to be able to in the right-click context menu.

It technically isn't a bug now, but it is something that would be nice to have. Having to keep Edge in a shared/normal desktop instead of being able to fullscreen the application is a frustrating limitation in MacOS, where full-screening an application is the only way to give it a dedicated virtual desktop (a workflow I think is a little easier in Windows).

Has there been any progress on vertical tabs on Mac?

I'm currently on Version 92.0.902.84 (Official Build) (arm64).
And vertical tabs still don't work in fullscreen.
