History is still practically the same as Chromium, so it isn't [yet] affected by the theming.
Anyway some mayor novelties will come on the theming side and the history itself is in the todo list since the beginning.
In short no need to ask, just wait. You will see changes as part of the Vivaldi evolution.
Thanks, I just wanted to know whether it will work on. I will be waiting.
I figured it out. There was corruption in the Secure Preferences file in the default profile. I was able to determine with certainty that this was the source of the problem, took a peak at it, found a section that had the suspect URL, did a bulk copy/replace with the correct URL that I may have wanted, replaced the file and everything is back to how it should have been.
I suspect that having a ? query string in the URL specified three times in the Secure Preferences file may have been the root cause.
Trash icon! Ugh, I never thought it was for that purpose! Many thanks
I have enabled autocomplete, and NOT ticked 'Always prefer bookmarks' , but it seems to make no difference. Am I missing something or is this a bug?
standalone version is not fully portable. When you have portable application, you can simply copy/move it to other machine, and it keeps its settings and everything. Sure sometimes due to system integration few settings can be even in system registry and so on. For example if you'd like to have Vivaldi as default system browser. But all the information/settings are moveable.
With Vivaldi Standalone version at lease passwords and extensions won't work this way. So even if you copy/move Standalone folder to other machine, you can't use these settings of Vivaldi.
It's because Vivaldi intstall (even Standalone as far as I know) is bound with current system user / OS / machine (not sure what exactly is used, but specific unique ID for current installation is made by some of these values). So its not fully portable in its nature.
As for passwords I also don't use passwords in browser. In some forums there was information, that it would be possible to export extensions (once). And I don't really got it, why are extensions bound to UUID, but it's fact.
Look, probably is better if you just uninstall Vivaldi taking care to check the removal od the user data.
That will clean your vivaldi profile all together requiring practically zero IT skill.
Usually I don't suggest to do that but given you have Vivaldi installed freshly I assume you aren't going to loose anything of important.
BTW you probably won't see your windows profile folder because you have yet to configure windows to show the hidden files.
That would be nice. I didn't continue using the extension because of the stuttering. It was pretty distracting. But I did like the configuration I got, it's kind of like Apple Safari, which is the feel I was going for. But I hope Vivaldi can natively have that kind of smooth scrolling eventually. That, and the font rendering, would help in making browsing a really nice experience.
Vivaldi can't import the favicons from other browsers. The file system is different. You just have to visit the websites and restart the browser to get the favicons back.
Firefox has Favicon Reloader extension to automate this. Is there anything similar for Vivaldi? I found an extension named Favicon Checker but after install and restart of Vivaldi it did not show any config page as shown in the screen shots.
Back in the day I wrote a brute force command line program that read a bookmarks.html file and loaded each bookmark in the default browser, 10 tabs at a time, then killed the browser and did the next 10. Needless to say that will not work anymore because browsers now weigh 10 tons and take a minute to load rather than a few seconds.
