uBlock Origin is the 👑 of the all addons out there imo.
And BTW it was the first addon supported by Firefox for Android 👆
In the next few weeks, uBlock Origin will be the first add-on to become available in the new Firefox for Android.
A few additional observations, concerning operation, bugs and possible feature requests.
After starting playback a three dot menu appears on the player, containing a menu item for downloading the podcast. This does nothing for me, tested on Linux only (VB-76260).
We can tab through the player elements to access the timeline(?), this lets us skip back and forth by 15 seconds using arrow keys. Pretty handy, because doing this with mouse is inaccurate and rough. Maybe expanding the player horizontally wouldn’t hurt either, at least when being hovered. Being able to input a time by hand to jump to it and buttons for skipping, would be awesome extras.

There is no way to mute the playing tab. Keyboard shortcuts don’t work and there is neither a speaker icon in the tab header, nor a corresponding entry in the context menu. “Muting other tabs” has no influence either. It’s likely because M3 is not a regular webpage, but I don’t see why this shouldn’t work. It would also be neat to get a toggle for stopping and resuming playback optional in the tab’s context menu.
@guigirl , Well once again by coming here in the vivaldi forums area & asking a question & receiving some helpful replies it makes me realize even more how grateful I am to be using a great browser & be among fellow user's that still care about other's & actually try to provide thoughtful answers to them. I'm surely going to take your valid advice & not use the vivaldihooks method & I just wanted to let you know that I'm currently trying out the bookmark extension via the link you included in your reply. Of course I don't object at all to using extensions as long as they provide what I'm wanting them to. As it turns out, I seem to be liking the one you mentioned better than the one I had been using: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/neater-bookmarks/ofgjggbjanlhbgaemjbkiegeebmccifi
(Update) One thing I personally dislike while using the tidy bookmarks extension is not being able to delete the 'other bookmarks' folder, even though I've gotten older now if my memory serves me correctly I think that I remember trying the tidy bookmarks a long time ago with a different chromium based browser & I didn't care for it at that time for the same exact reason...PLEASE don't think I'm trying to be rude in any way.
@Lionking202084 We like to get ideas, discussions and programming tips from other pros and not-so-experienced users related to Vivaldi modification, extension programming etc. or not so related to Vivaldi.
@Pesala No, no message. But now after a restart of Vivaldi I could restore the shortcuts for history back including backspace. A little hiccup, it seems.
But it is still impossible to simply add backspace as a short cut.
It needs some time to figure it out and find out the usefulness.
For tiling, you would need 2 Screens or more or one in full screen and just work for a period of time.
Usually, Studying, working, researching... you end up with many tabs.
Sometimes not all users knows the many features it has and its combinations.
But if even knowing those features are not enough useful to use it, fine.
@section31x said in HOW TO: make vivaldi open downloaded files automatically:
I don't want files opening automatically.
Nobody forces you, this functionality (if accessible, because it is already implemented) is optional and is by file type.
It's probably a security risk and best to leave that option out.
The security of a program should not be at the expense of usability and comfort for the user.
In this case, moreover, this is a poor excuse. All the most popular browsers implement this function. Chromium, on which Vivaldi is based, has it.
I chose Vivaldi for its flexibility, despite its many bugs (which I trust will be solved little by little), and the freedom it allows the user. So I don't accept that such functionality is not implemented with the poor excuse of security.
Not all of us use Windows. And those who do have to be careful and/or use an antivirus.
Not allowing downloaded files to be automatically opened does not make it safer.
The management of that downloaded file is done by the operating system, not Vivaldi.
For example, .torrent files are downloaded to be opened with another program (by themselves they are useless), opening them automatically with the browser is, for me, essential.
@stardepp Well done for providing this help for noobs, & especially for linking to @LonM's fantastic mod.
Just wrt broadening the relevance for non-windoze users, the corresponding Linux default Profile Path is:
I'm sure that in no time flat a Mac user will be able to add the relevant path for that platform, to this thread.
For anyone unsure of their actual path if somehow they did a non-standard installation, they can easily discover it by inspecting internal page vivaldi://about/.
@Pathduck No, MediathekView is open source and may officially offer the services of the public media libraries. With the free extension Hoxx VPN
I was able to bypass the country lock and could watch Babylon Berlin from Sweden (Finland does not offer Hoxx)
For example: The German ZDF magazine Planet E. also offers its reports in English
Many other German TV shows also offer their programs in English. If I can think of more, I will publish it here.
@Pesala said in Change font throughout Vivaldi (Windows):
This step is no longer required. Custom UI Modifications are enabled by default in Vivaldi Stable 3.3 or later.
I've tried now with a clean --user-data-dir on my 3.4 & it's still disabled (by default).
One can also see the experiment features in the Biscuit Area of the Settings dialog. Enter the "dog face" emoji to enable it.
These are two different experiments... one is chrome://flags for Vivaldi's features & the other is almost purely for testing.
Hi, one user post this link, you can choose a list and copy link from Home button then add the link to Vivaldi.
It seams most lists are linked to Github.
Another possible parameter would be the number of results displayed, Vivaldi only display suggestions 5 maximum anyway, so if available, limit this list to 5 elements (setting it higher won't make more suggestions appear)
Is this 5 maximum suggestions limitation still in place?
