    Any ideas? If I open a page in the background it shows the tab button really quick then just goes back to left, right, and the unzoom button. Thanks!

    Really? The tab button should never disappear. Are you on iOS6?

    Yeah when it's in full screen there's not a tab button.

    And by "fullscreen" you mean when the address bar has disappeared? Can you post a screenshot please? :)

    Put your phone in landscape orientation, Safari goes fullscreen. There's no tab button =\

    You'd think they'd implement a two or three finger swipe or something.

    there is some misunderstanding here. there is no fullscreen safari in iOS5. address bar disappearing is not full screen.

    in ios6 to make the safari goes fullscreen, u have to press the little icon arrow in the bottom right.

    when it goes fullscreen, there is no tabs button. so to switch tabs u have to turn your phone into portrait, then press tabs button. or u just turn fullscreen off and press tabs button, after that turn full screen on again.

    i prefer to switch to portrait then press tabs button then switch to landscape again. it's a bit faster.

    Fullscreen mode is when you place the iOS 6 phone in landscape mode then press the squeeze arrows icon. And no, I found it irritating that the only UI buttons available are the arrows and exit button.
