Weird contraction of tabs in build 84.0.502.0

Valued Contributor

Hi insiders & team,

In build 84.0.502.0, upon opening links in Edge, the tabs contract like they all have been pinned, however they have not been.

Attaching a snip for reference:


Please consider fixing this.

Interesting, this is not happening for me. All seems normal. Exactly what is it you're doing?


The behavior gets triggered when we open a link from another app or website installed as app. The tabs contract exactly to the size like they are pinned...

@Rohit Yadav I saw this briefly yesterday after updating to  84.0.502.0. At the time I had just the one (unpinned) tab open. I opened a second tab directly (not through a link) and the first tab instantly changed to normal size. I haven't' seen this happen since.

This is happening in chromium, saw in it my chrome canary also.

In their latest post, Microsoft has already mentioned that they are aware of this issue. You need not worry: this will be fixed in the upcoming updates.

They are aware that this happens only when a link from another app or program is opened in the browser.
