@ROTFL said in Hibernating / unloading web panels content:
I'd like to have something to kill / hibernate webpanel(s).
That is available in the Web Panel Actions mod. It creates a toolbar with controls for many useful actions like: zoom, find in page, invert colors, mute, and everyone's desired terminate panel. Just double click the terminate button to kill the panel. Then use the home button or refresh when you want to load it again.
adding onto this: it should also probably be possible to select a group of tabs from the window panel and move them to a new window in addition to moving them to another window.
currently neither of those exist, but with this feature it'd likely be trivial to add
@Ayespy I don't understand why the Settings Gear button is on the (often hidden) Panel Toolbar at all. What does it have to do with panels? It would be better on the Status Bar, but one can use the Sync button as a workaround, and move that to the top with the navigation buttons.
What do you mean by panels not keeping logins?
In the webpanels, of those requiting login, I'm having my e-mail accounts (vivaldi, yahoo, etc) and my web messenger apps (telegram etc.)
They never reload and are always logged in after restarting browser or computer, even after updating the browser. Actually, I don't remember logging again after my initial logging.
We have explained many times, why we'd like this feature, but you still don't understand. You should try to accept, that people may have different workflows and use cases. The world does not spin around you.
@Noralum Going via the History Tab is the slow way. Use the shortcut for Delete Private Data (default = Ctrl+Shift+Delete) to go directly to the Delete Browsing Data dialog.
Ctrl+A then Delete in the History Panel is best to clear only the browsing history.
There isn't any way to modify permissions to a web panel, as a tab it has all the permissions and everything woks as it should. If you try to add a tab version as a web panel does not change the behavior.
Also it is set to use a desktop version, as mobile version will not work due to the fact as it will try to force you to install the mobile app.

@Seasonly said in Disassemble Address Bar into Panel:
We just need to display the address bar when there is a new page
Well, the "new page" would mean "new path". So if you click on any link, the address bar would >>show, therefore would hiding even be worth it?
this is about new domain precisely.
or the page changes security status.
Only security status could be still kept visible. One solution I suggested is to shown the status onto the tab (look Show Insecure Status for HTTP Site on Tabs ).
That will hopefully be irrelevant in few years as the sites keep adopting HTTPS, so we could (in meaningful ways, like a full-page warning) deprecate HTTP overall.
Until this date, a such security information would be useful however.
And is it really even useful for bookmarked pages?
Absolutely - who guarantees that the page you open is the same you bookmarked? Redirects, MITM, dead links and other stuff can happen.
If this is not the bookmarked domain, then this is an browsering accident, and you get a new domain so, you'll be warned by the address bar showing. What is MITN ?
And even if we really want a long- focus on the bar, which is occasional, a pinning system controlled by the user interface could very well be suitable (example this Unanchor panel / Free floating panel / Pop-up panel).
That would not be very ergonomic as having a popup is less predictable (location, size, background/foreground etc.) than a static element.
The more simple is a pin icon on the address bar panel considered as a vivaldi panel. Currently, you can't set floating or not each panel ! If this would be then the address bar can appear like an information balloon which disappears automaticaly except if you keep it visible changing its floating status to static one.
If we consider that vivaldi panel has its own parameters, then the panel unanchored as a popup can keep its position, size...
That sums up how often the address bar and its contents are not fully consulted. Because these are technical data that are not useful in everyday use.
Yet that is exactly the opposite of what should be. People need to be aware of addresses more than the page titles and favicons, because reading them correctly might just be the only thing that can save them one day.
In a general and everyday use I don't think so. Title and favicon are enough. Because we use always the same sites. Knowing the domain is the main part of the address, and this is the favicon which does that. The other information into the url is not very useful.
@LonM said in Drag and Drop in Download Panel:
Create a new web panel, with this address: vivaldi://downloads.
It might take a bit of fiddling to find a good panel width (Right click the panel icon > check separate width, then drag the panel edge to resize). But then this internal page will allow you to drag items.
I did this but each item is obnoxiously large. It only fits 4 and the normal downloads panel can fit 11. Is there some way to resize those?
New Tab Stack
That is already there, but as with the Tab Bar, you first have to select the tabs to create a tab-stack.
Move tab to
Only makes sense if the Window Panel includes other Windows, in which case D&D would be easier in any case.
