Annoying, isn't it, to have to leave one browser to go to another for an, apparently, simple service which they can all do except for good old Vivaldi!
I contacted Amazon thru their Chat help service and told them about Vivaldi not being able to play Amazon Prime movies or previews. That it cuts out after 10 seconds with an error.
They said it would be forwarded to their Tech Team to be aware of the problem to look into it. So maybe they might be able to have it as an approved browser on their site.
As of now I use Firefox60 to watch Amazon Prime Videos, maybe Vivaldi will be allowed if its their servers causing the problem.
Good idea! I have just contacted Amazon Spain on Chat and they will also pass on the problem to the technical department.
I cant guess why this happens.
With which extension installs does this happen?
Did you try to remove all extensions ans install new step by step?
Perhaps you may report the issue but i fear it is not easy to reproduce.
Please read How to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.
@luminouslemon if you load an unpacked extension and then you delete the directory from where you have loaded it, it's logical that Vivaldi can't find it anymore. It may be possible that you just downloaded in a default download directory, or a temp directory and loaded it from there, and then in a second time you have cleared the temp/download directory.
If you create a crx (Pack Extension button), just give the directory where you have unzipped your extension zip, for example C:\temp\scriptblock-master and in C:\temp you'll find a scriptblock-master.crx; just drag and drop it inside the extension window. That's how an extension should be installed.
After that you can delete the extension zip, crx, pem and the unpacked directory. The extension is now correctly installed in "%localappdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Extensions" so you don't need anymore the extra files.

I hope this makes it to stable eventually
Sure it will, but the next stable may be months away yet. If it bugs you, install the Snapshot as a standalone version.
It seems they included this fix in the latest stable patch. At least from reading the change log.
Having tried it, I feel like this is the intended behaviour. History is designed to keep track of the sites you visit, and there's no need to track a site more than once. - Think of <a> links that get coloured purple after you visit them once - a link being visited once is all a browser realistically needs to remember to render the web properly.
However, thinking about it, it does seem odd that the entires jump about when the history view is designed to look like a calendar. In that case, it seems like you would want a log of sites visited according to day:
The reason it was implemented with a calendar view was, in part, to make it easier to find sites. Say you couldn't remember a particular site, but knew you visited it on a certain day. This use case would be broken if you had accessed this site on a later date but forgot about it.
I tried some other browsers to see what they do, and both edge and firefox only seem to keep a single entry per site with the date being the latest visit.
Edge wins some points as the "old" history entry lingers for a little while, but it wouldn't surprise me if that was a bug.
@pesala said in Bookmarks & Speeddial sorting:
@stagger_lee ...most users would regard it as a bug if sorting bookmarks resulted in the speed dials being rearranged.
Yes. Me too!
Also, if the bookmarks db wasn't loked up one could sort using SQlite.

Apparently I'm not so good at analyzing and fixing problems
@catweazle said in Sound problems:
if this problem is so strange..
I suspect the mixer setup
My distro has an long time audio issue. A conflict between two sound system. It got better now. Example: the speakers and the headphone don't work at the same time.
@barrym Seems like it always says that... I first "Checked for new drivers on the internet" and the message was that I had the latest.
Then I went through the next item "Check Windows Update for new drivers" and Voila!... New drivers!!
Installed and rebooted. All OK.
Sometimes things are not always as they seem!
If you have got it working, don't fix it.
If you've not tried the above, it's an option...
I have not been able to reproduce the issue with both extensions disabled and flags reset to default. By reproduce, I mean have the issue happen as I cannot identify a way to reproduce the issue at will. I simply have to wait for it to happen.
So I'm not sure what combination of extensions and flags being enabled is causing the issue or if it is simply one of either that is the culprit.
I can also now cause the tab strip to re-appear after disappearance by simply opening a new tab using ctrl-t as the (+) disappears along with the tab strip.
Thank you @Pesala and @An_dz, for your support, having posted while travelling meant that by the time I got round to testing your suggestions and/or reporting it, the issue was already resolved. PDFs currently always open in the third-party PDF app and can open directly from double-clicking in the downloads panel without the need of unchecking the suggested options in the download options.
All the best and thank you.
