A must need for people who use tab bar on the sides! Waiting for it!
There's a mod from @sethjbr which lets us customise V for the time being.
/* Prevent changing the size of the side panel or the tab bar once size is configured */
display: none !important;
For more information on modding:
Note: We would need to reapply the code after every update.
Unfortunately, it does not work this way in my PC 😞
I use a different settings (Startup with Start Page), so Vivaldi always opens with my Start Page (and it is preferable by me) and never asks me for last session.
I have different sessions saved (with different windows, tabs, sizes and positions on 2 monitors). And none of those windows is maximized on any monitor.
Currently, when I close Vivaldi from the window of the maximized browser, and then open Vivaldi (first automatically on my Start Page), and then I choose to open one of stored sessions, all windows will be opened in the maximized mode.
And when I close Vivaldi from not-maximized window (e.g. half of the monitor), after re-opening Vivaldi and selecting a saved session, all windows will be opened from the size of half the monitor, one above the other (although these windows have been saved with different sizes and positions).
On August 2017 I submitted a bug report ( VB-30942 ) with this issue.
The Opera 50 method of simply dragging and dropping the tab onto the current page is the right way to do this.
While you're waiting, just assign a shortcut such as Shift+F11 to "Detach Tab."
Alternatively, assign a mouse gesture. I recommend one that is not too easy to do accidentally, e.g. GestureDown, GestureRight, GestureUp.
@sgunhouse The OP was talking about keyboard use only. If one uses Ctrl+Left/Right to navigate text, the cursor is always at the beginning of the word, not inside it. The context menu invoked from the keyboard does not show the suggestions.
