None of this changes the fact that the question raised isn't an Avast problem.
Well, you and I know that, but the majority of users will just blame the Avast Browser.
Ignorance is bliss. If you read the facts, it's obvious this is not Avast's fault.

Good point, but where should users read the facts, there's no additional info available in ASB.

The facts aren't in the Secure Browser they are in Chrome.

Hello,

this is unfortunately as designed. The same behaviour could be seen in Google Chrome as well.

Best regards,
Josef

Thanks, but you are not correct. I do not have this problem in either Chrome or Opera.
I consider this a bug in the Avast Browser. There is no logic for the Bookmarks Bar to show
when it's turned OFF. Only showing in "New Tab" makes even less sense. This is a nuance
that needs to be fixed.

Cheers :)


I apologize. Since the New Tab already seems to open Google Search, I did not pay attention
to the details on that page, assuming it was Google.com. I guess the problem is that there is
no way to set the New Tab page in the settings.

In all other browsers, I have Google.com opening in New Tab, which is NOT showing any
Bookmarks bar. I don't see why Avast could not add this simple feature.

And yes, I still blame Avast team for this nuance. ;)


Cheers :)

He is correct.
Here's a video I just created in Chrome that proves the anomaly.

But in that video, you don't  have the New Tab set to Google.com...

It's a documented Chromium problem.

Opera browser is also Chromium based. Here is New Tab using default settings:
