Stack/Sliding Tabs not showing everything if node opened in new tab

Steps to reproduce

For ease of reproduce-ability I will only use a single note that references itself but the link destination does not matter.


  1. Set Tabs to stack
  2. Open a new note and insert a link to itself
  3. Control click the link to get a new tab
  4. Repeat 3 until you have at least one note that is not entirely visible

Triggering the Bug:

  1. Focus the right most open note that is still completely visible
  2. Control click the link in this note
  3. Control click the link in the new note, if you still see the link

Doing this will open a new note but not show it in its entirety.


  1. Focus another note
  2. Focus back to the new note

I recorded the process and saved it as a gif. A few notes here:

  1. I have the exact same behaviour on my Windows machine, but the recording is from non-KDE/non-GNOME and non-AppImage and I am aware of your policy. It is only for the recording and the behaviour is identical on Windows.
  2. The recording triggers the bug in the preparation phase already and then continues to demonstrate the bug another two times and what the work around is

Additional information

I have the same behaviour on my Windows machine. I can post the debug info as well, but it should be a very similar picture: Logged in, Insider build, etc.
I tested on my normal vault, in an empty vault, and the sandbox vault.

Sounds like the same as one or both of these?
