As the title says, if the url bar is removed, the browser becomes severely broken after restart
or quit/start again.
The issue does not happen in Safe Mode, but definitely it is not related to installed extensions.
This is because in Safe Mode the browser enters always in a default layout, with url bar.
I can reproduce this issue in normal mode only, always, having all of my installed extensions
disabled or not.
How to reproduce / what i noticed:
1.- Enter customization mode and move the url bar in customization palette. Please note:
I'm referring specifically to url bar, not to hide the navigation toolbar!
2.- Restart the browser or quit and start it over.
3.- When the browser starts, there are two visible things of this issue:
- The session will not be restored, showing only a blank tab.
- The bookmarks toolbar will be completely empty.
"Tools -> Web Developer" is also broken (Ctrl+Shift+J does not work too).
There are also several other malfunctions: You can't restore previous session, the right-click
context menu in various places is broken by showing all available menu items (applicable or not), etc.
For example, try to right-click on the bookmarks toolbar.
4.- It's possible to enter customization mode and restore the url bar, but after that the menu
bar becomes unreachable (frozen).
However, after the url bar is restored in the first window, it is possible to open a new one with
Ctrl+N, which seems to be ok. This way i was able to open the browser console and see several
errors, like the following:
Several extensions also, mainly restartless, become partially or completely broken, causing their
own errors to appear in browser console.
This issue is taking place as long as the url bar is removed. After it is restored, everything is ok
after a browser restart.
