We’ve scheduled an update to Vivaldi Community Blogs between 16:00 and 19:00 UTC on 17th of December. During this time you may experience some downtime on Vivaldi.net. Thank you for your understanding.
I've got a different problem with scrolling in 2.2: after clicking the wheel and moving the mouse down to scroll smoothly, it's sometimes gets stuck scrolling, and it becomes hard to stop scrolling (have to click several times before it stops; moving the mouse up also doesn't slow down/stop scrolling).
The Use POST method seems to have some hidden surprises since the last version. I had the cursor active outside and above the Google searchbox after having installed the last version of Vivaldi.
I was able to resolve the issue by ticking the Use POST method box in the settings.
(I hope this might help users facing the same issue)
this link works if i open it but putting it in the personalized start page addresses won't do the trick. still opening default page.
@rseiler said in Search field history no longer works after upgrade to 2.2.x:
The down arrow to the right of the dedicated search field is inoperable until one character or more is typed into the search field. Doing that is the only way to see previous searches using that search field.
I can't repro the issue. In cased you are having the same problem, I suggest to report a bug, you will be given a number (VB-999999), please, post here for our follow up.
.... OR ... write a simple DOS batch file (using commands in Command Prompt) to delete the cache folder.
I have a comprehensive BAK.BAT batch file to do daily back-ups, the first part of which deletes all the useless space-consuming files of my choice.
Have a look at the 'DEL' options within the Windows Command Prompt.
This assumes you are comfortable creating batch files, of course.
If not, I'm prepared to help a little.
Hope this helps.
@rseiler said in Tab Stacking not working with mouse:
works in either direction here
Ditto for me. I found zero hint of tab-stacking malfunction here, using mouse, in tab-bar... & i verified by testing [all being latest versions]:
1, Snapshot & Stable in Manjaro KDE Linux.
2. Stable in Win7.
3. Snapshot & Stable in Win10.
Correct functioning was found with tab-row at top, & tab-column at RHS, & performing the stack in both directions.
OT: OMZ, when i fired up my old Win7 VM... what a blast from the past, so olde-worlde, so quaint, so slow, so narrow after Linux.
I can confirm the the same issue. I use an external gesture program to handle mouse gestures and causes vivaldi to go back 2 times whenever it sends VK_BROWSER_BACK key code. It uses this MS 'api' :
Others have reported this issue here like this topic below, the culprit must be the same:
@ROTFL Well, you may try the shark (which is small in size) or the kazaa lite mega codec pack (which is a big collection of codecs) to see if you can use netfilx without MS codec pack.
But probably the best solution will be to use the MS feature pack which actually convert "Win10 N" to "Win10". Or the one linked here, which seems to add only the WinMedia Codecs (and H264/DRM, I hope).
About the unwanted apps - some tools or powershell commands allow their removal...but they may come again at any major update =_=
