I rechecked the settings after updating to 1.11.
It seems that somewhere in between, new gestures were introduced (Open Link in New Tab (Over a Link), ...) and those are the ones actually needed to be changed. I kept changing the old ones and that's why it didn't work. Solved now!
It's really weird, because in the right-click menu there is an option "Reload" but it's always greyed out. Also I have a site with sparklines and auto-refreshing percentages, and while the percentage does auto-refresh, the sparklines don't - I have to manually reload every sparkline image to refresh. And at some point even the percentages stop refreshing.
Over twenty of them when I open the task manager.
Is that normal?
and the second question
You can use File/Import Bookmarks and Settings, but the File/Export is only for bookmarks. I want to save ALL my settings, including advanced settings, so I may recall them (import) if needed.
Twenty processes? If you have 15 or 16 tabs and/or a number of extensions, totally normal. One process per tab, one process for the engine, one process for the JS engine, one process for the UI, and one process per active extension.
Right now the only way to save ALL your settings is to make a copy of the "Default" folder, which is identified in menu/help/about/profile path in your main menu. When sync arrives you will be able to sync all of your settings, etc. to another copy of Vivaldi.

I reported it as a bug. It is bad UI design. I carefully arranged my search engines in alphabetical order so that it is easy to find the one that I want. Now, I have to stop and think before selecting the desired search engine.
