Since Browser redesign with Version 4.2 (Verla), the Browser cover on Homescreen stays empty when simply leaving the Browser with side-swipe
- Open Browser
- Open Web Page
- Leave Browser with Side Swipe
Browser cover on Homescreen shows Picture of last visited Website
Browser Cover is empty (to be exact it shows the Browser Icon and “Einen neuen Tab erstellen” (“Create new Tab”)
Workaround: Browser Cover appears when changing from webpage to Tab Overview before leaving the browser.
So it seams like the picture for Browser Cover is now taken from the picture of the website which is shown in the Tab Overview. If not using Tab Overview, it is not created and then missing in the App Cover on Homescreen.
I admit this does not affect functionality but only aesthetics but i think the OS should not be inconsistent like it is in this case.
