Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open userportal or webadmin in browser

main tabs are visible correctly on any width
Reducing to low as a workaround exists: don't make your browser window too narrow.

screen-cast: main tabs and search bar disappearing point
see attachment 1113956 [details] - it looks like the main tabs and search bar are disappearing when the window width / resolution width is ~770px. I don't think that anyone today uses a screen width resolution of less than 1024px.
I am guessing that the entire search-bar/main-tabs banner is being "cut" to a second "line", leaving a blank banner on the first "line".
@Alexander - is this something that can be easily fixed, without risking the behaviour for other (higher) resolutions? if so - please fix. If not - please close on WONT_FIX. Thanks.
Well the actual problem is that once you get below a certain size, the header switches to mobile size mode (see the little hamburger icon at the top right in the screen shot) and menu is not designed to properly go into hamburger mode. Its been doing this since we introduced patternfly in the product (3.5?). Unless we spend quite a bit of time making this work properly, I don't think we can do much about it at this point in time, so I would recommend close won't fix at this point.
