I have a very strange problem recently.
I have set Safari so that new windows are opened in tabs (or I add tabs manually to open new windows) – I just prefer this over having many separate windows. Now, initially everything is ok and I see the tabs below my bookmark bar. Then – and I do not even know how it happens- , suddenly these tabs are gone and the window looks as though there is only one tab open. When I try to close the window, it warns me that there are two or three tabs in the window though, and in fact when I click somewhere on the left hand side just below the bookmarks, I can manage to get into another one of the tabs/sites that are open (but often this would accidentally lead to clicking the bookmark that is just above).
I have tried to reproduce the problem to see when the tabs are disappearing, but whenever I try it on purpose they stay there…. But then, of course when I am working all of a sudden I find them gone. grrrrr :-)
I don’t have huge amounts of tabs open when this happens, generally between two and four.
Have you ever heard of the problem and / or do you have any tip how to make the tabs visible again without closing everything and reopening?
