I can't reproduce here on win7 32 bit, Vivaldi 2.4.1488.29
The page takes some seconds to load fully, as each of the files get diff-ed individually while scrolling. After reaching the bottom of page, shift-esc and the tab shows taking 108,224kb (!) of RAM, but apart that, scrolling up and down works smoothly for me, and can close the tab regularly. No particular hiccups.
@blackfailer Hm, I've got something next to that, the new tab button hangs a bit if I have animations on and a minimum tab with of 90px set - but after a while it settles and I can access the + and the x again, but sometimes it took "ages" though.
@lanternland videodownloadhelper works in firefox for me - gives options of versions of the video to download so I can choose mp4 and have it turn up in Plex media player (or open with mpv - the best for opening files from disk).
To be honest, to simply open Youtube I use a chromium shortcut (opens as an app window)... but then when downloading is interesting it's Firefox. I'm not keen on Palemoon - I tried it, but it's based on very old Firefox code...
Anyway, the SIMPLEST way to do this (and I just tested it again - and it worked) is to pause your video, then replace the initial addressbar text with SSyoutube.com. Works with any browser...
Make sure to delete from the '.' in front of .youtube.com so you replace 'https://www.' with ss - then you get a website offering you a green download button.
I just put slimjet on, and must say it's pretty slick as a youtube downloader... though the tabs are completely white (white text on white tab) even when set to GTK+ theming so that sucks.
Best player for video is MPV (also the basis for Plex Media Player if you have the server installed) which also works for music too... though I prefer Audacious for music, it allows me to drag 'keepers' into my picard app which checks tags, renames, and moves them to my music library folder (so it then turns up in 'clementine' - my computer's jukebox/lyrics display as well as plex media player). Best features of MPV - unless you mess with settings it opens fastest, resizes with no borders (i.e. it's just basically video display with no borders, just titlebar visible - no menus or visible controls) - great for 'always on top' video hovering over the page as you're busy typing.
@greybeard If you go to Wikipedia, it says:
"The company is headquartered in Barcelona and currently operates in eleven countries around Europe; Spain, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland."
Maybe that's the reason.
Are you able to check Rakuten TV with this proxy (with EU server)?
@JamieMulcahy said in Windows background image no longer working :
So it seems the feature to use and track Windows background image in the start page is no longer a thing.
It works quite well, here. It is the setting I use. As @LonM showed, it is under the Start Page setting.
@k7gV8Y This would be interesting to try to implement, as the architecture of private windows (as a function of the underlying Chromium engine) prohibits the storage of cookies beyond the current session. One way this is implemented is that opening a private window denies access to cookies outside the current session.
