    I have Android Nougat on my S2 and Oreo on my S3, and the exact same version of Chrome on both (current update 67.0.3396.87), but on my S3 the Chrome page is like on my old phone (Lollipop 5.1.1) - very basic - on the Home/Navigation page(s) there are no tab folders, no 'new tab' parallelogram button for opening new tabs, no new/multiple tabs able to be shown together in the same window next to each other (new tabs open as separate pages), no back, forward, or refresh/stop buttons (no long press to show previous/next recent history), no toggle icon between regular and incognito modes, no bookmarks star icon, etc. On my S2 I have all of that on the nav page, but on my S3 all I have is the home button, then the address bar, then an icon that shows the number of pages that are open (and can be accessed - in tile view - only by pressing said button) and then the menu button. That's it, so it is slow and frustrating to use as a browser. Basically, I do not have the Omnibox available in Chrome, but when I use Firefox on my S3 its omnibox shows up and works fine (same with Chrome on my S2). So what gives? I recently updated to the S3 and I use Chrome a lot so if I can't fix this I am seriously thinking of returning my S3 and purchasing some other tablet. Is this usual on all Tab S3s or is something just wrong with mine?

    In the Google settings do you have open a new window on? If you click on the top right drop down menu do you have the option for Open a new window?

    @villanur101 does yours look like this? This screenshot is from chrome on my Tab S3. Can you post a screenshot of what you expect to have?

    I feel really stupid about this, but it turns out I just had my text scaling set too high in Settings. The Best Buy tech figured it out pretty fast. Thanks, Tech Guy! If someone else has a problem like this, that's probably why.

    We might have saved you a trip if we had seen a screenshot.
