I got around the issue. Another user pointed out to me that it can be changed under preferences (Keyboard -> Page -> Focus Address field). So I simply (re)added Alt+D back.
Firefox uses Ctrl+L and also works in Vivaldi.
Both Ctrl + L and Alt + D are standard shortcuts that work in Chrome and Firefox. I'm just used to the former, thanks anyway
I, like others here, had also been wondering how to open new tabs in the background from links. It is also how I work. I had also not noticed (until I read this thread) that there is an option in the right-click context menu to "open link in background tab".
But seeing Vivaldi is quite customisable, and the option exists in the context menu, I don't think it would be very difficult to have a default option setting for this? It would just add that cherry on the top for me and make it work even more smoothly.
For now I'll try retrain my click to select the 3rd option from the top. I'm really enjoying using Vivaldi though!
On my machine, starting Vivaldi with no email takes 4 seconds. Starting Vivaldi with email installed and operating takes 4 seconds. That said, If email is included and downloaded with the browser package, it doesn't do anything or take any processor cycles or memory space unless you enable it and set up an account. Hence, it increases startup time by exactly 0%.
Somehow, people just don't get it. It's the same as the alleged bloaty Firefox, just because it has things like Hello on board, which can be completely removed from the running process on the user interface in three seconds.
Thank you for this. So while the bookmark file itself may contribute to this problem, it is for sure, in your case, not the problem (you tried exporting, removing, re-importing, and no joy). Yes, you probably could have at least saved log-in data and gotten it back, but just exactly what is doing this is still rather fraught. It's a fairly rare complaint, and is so far only able to be RELIABLY reproduced by installing certain extensions, but then users without those extensions have still reported the problem. SOME of them have fixed it with a profile refresh, involving backing up their bookmark file and replacing it into the new profile. SOME have fixed it by exporting and importing their bookmarks, SOME have not fixed it. It's a puzzle to be sure.
That's a bug. It's not supposed to be there. If you grab the bottom of that little line of tab previews and drag it up or down, you can make it go away, or make a line of full-sized tab thumbnails, it was it was intended. The ability to drag to varying sizes is intentional, because some people like their thumbnails less than full height, but if you DON'T want tab thumbnails, you should be able to turn them off in settings and not thereafter accidentally drag them open. The developers are aware of the problem.
Sounds as if you have those (goal.com etc) in your Bookmarks.
You could just delete them or if you don't want Vivaldi to suggest Bookmarks:
File / Tools / Settings / Address Bar
and under Address Auto-Complete
DISable "Always Prefer Bookmarks"
Bug Reports and Feature Requests can be sumbitted to the Bug Report Wizard.
There's a Feature Requests thread in the All Platforms forum with a list of common Feature Requests in the first post, to try to avoid too many duplicates.
All of the instances you cited were solved by fixing a bad checksum or by re-downloading or simply trying again, but for two. And on those two, we don't know what happened because they never responded again after someone offered a solution or asked a question.
The one commonality I noticed between your problem and one of the others with the "failed to uncompress" issue is that the browser was installed standalone. Unfortunately, that's one of the users that dropped from sight without telling us what happened to his issue.
In over eighteen thousand bug reports, I see five instances of your problem. Two of them were traced back to either real or false system feedback of inadequate disk space to install or failure of the installer to check for adequate disk space. Two more were back-burnered for failure of the developers to be able to replicate the problem. The fifth was a Windows XP problem.
The only thing I can suggest at this point, given that over a million copies of the software are installed and updating without an issue, is for you to try the normal install location, try the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the browser (whichever you are not using), try installing for current user or all users, whichever you are not doing, install the regular, not standalone version, or in any other way you can think of, do something DIFFERENT from what has not been working.
I have this working now. This appears to be a conflict with the extension HTTPS Everywhere. Removing it and the netflix cookies fixed the issue of being unable to access the Netflix DVD page and queue in Vivaldi.
Update.. looks like this bug is present only in external monitor setup. I suspect is related to nVidia Nview that I uses to manage multiple desktop. Recently upated my nVidia VGA driver and the issues is gone.
It's a long-standing issue. Opera 12.17 still suffers from this after exiting from Fullscreen mode. Apparently harder to fix than one might think.
(VB-17670) Vivaldi Breaks Autohide of the Windows Taskbar
so i've been using opera since version 7 (2003)
I still have 12 installed on my pc but i found this and I think I finally can throw the new opera away and say farewell to the old friend (12), but there's a few features that I think are lacking
1. ability to drag an opened tab to a new window
2. ability to detach embedded media to it's own window (without window decorations) (thats from the new opera)
3. and ability to turn off the thumbnails of tabs you get by clicking middle mouse below the tabs. that thing is really annoyed me in 12 (you guys gave me the dejavu) but it was possible to turn off in 12, and I did not find how to do it in vivaldi
1. Being worked on as we speak.
2. Unknown when this might be looked at.
3. Known and often-reported bug, fairly low priority at the moment, due to more important projects like tab handling, mail and sync.
