@doctorg Thanks for the reply. I infact tried with a second profile as well. Even with a brand new profile, Vivaldi uses Windows creds to perform the first factor and directly prompts me for the 2nd factor. Is there someplace to disable Windows user based auth for a new profile?
When there are a mix of:
single row tabs
2 row tab stacks
When switching from a single row tab to a two row tab stack the windows readjust 1st to the size of single row tab which was open and then to the two row tab size. So for a few fractions of a second when the tabs switch the text, images and ui jumps around until the double resize is finish.
When opening a new stacked tab from a row 1 tab this 1st open in the 1st row and then quickly moved to the 2nd row. This also cause a momentary double flicker in the UI. Ideally it should be open in the 2nd row directly and then page redrawn.
I am not creating a new thread for this as it is somewhat related.
Thanks, once again, for replying.
You said: "That depends on the Theme"
Not in my experience. Changing the tint of a window doesn't make it more or less usable if the window components are all essentially the same shade of blah... This is a UI design issue which has never been Opera's or Vivaldi's strong suite.
And: "True, but there is a search field"
Sorry but a bookmark folder window that doesn't allow for either alphabetization or manual sorting is broken.
And: "making the dialog even bigger would upset more users than it would please"
I'm not suggesting making the entire 520 pixel window taller - just making the folder window portion of it a greater % of the total window. I can be done and since the individual folders are just jumbled together in no logical order it would greatly benefit for such a redesign.
And: "adding the Automatic description can be disabled in Settings."
Where, specifically, please.
@ayespy said in Taskbar icon:
@grafis The "vivaldi-proxy" call appears to be a Windows error. Something useless Windows interjects when constructing the Vivaldi taskbar shortcut.
Maybe that's why it has appeared with various other programmes on my Win10 laptop. It seems to affect Windows... all of it, even Notepad.
@phant said in Passwords and cookies are vanishing once or twice a day:
No, there shouldn't be any privacy app like that.
OK, but check your Avira settings for anything that might delete passwords because of some misinformed notion of "privacy" some of these programs have.
I'm getting aware that I had O&O ShutUp10 on the system.
I have that myself, and it wouldn't delete passwords.
It's strange that it's both saved passwords and cookies. When users complain about being logged out, usually they've set cookies to "session only" and forgot about it, or they have some kind of "privacy" app on the system they don't really understand. That's why we need to make sure that's not the case first.
It looks like you know your stuff, so hopefully you'll be able to figure out what goes on.
Another thing to test is creating a new profile in Vivaldi and save a couple of passwords there, or migrate completely over to the new one, and see how it goes. Obviously this will be hard to know before some time has passed, as you say it only happens from time to time.
The "happens from time to time" is also worrying. I would expect some cleaner/privacy program would do this regularly, at least weekly if not daily 😕
Another nice tool to use is Nirsoft ChromePass, just point it to your Vivaldi profile under Advanced Options and it should be able to decrypt any passwords. Maybe the passwords are there just somehow "hidden"...
Good to know I'm not insane, because this issue has been bugging me too. I'm glad someone was able to reproduce this bug with consistency. Thank you Menno for finding the specific details!
I'd normally roll back versions since this is the type of bug that disrupts my daily workflow, but I'd really like to keep using the new RSS and email features in version 4. I guess that means I'm just going to have to enable opening tabs at the end until this is fixed. 🤷♂
Any updates? I'm running 4.0.2313.33, and I'm still seeing this bug.
@abolog said in Restore old animation of moving tabs:
Except that, if you have tabs that update their title. It all crumbles to pieces and goes chaotic.
It flashes + the tab gets thrown at the end of the line.
Please. This is not the way to do tab management. Something must be done.
Maybe the stacking feature is with right click or cltr+move or something. And leave the tabs sliding.
This is an ugly bug.
Is a fix planned ?
Or are you trying to alienate your users Mozilla style ?
@raoulg said in Restore old animation of moving tabs:
@abolog Exactly the same behavior for me. Still don't understand how that is not considered a fairly important issue for an otherwise pretty great browser...
@gwen-dragon Thank you for testing. Do you have Spotify app on your machine? I do. WinDirStat 5/6/2020
I'm remembering that I found podcast on web. I had choice of APPLE or SPOTIFY. I clicked SPOTIFY and the podcast started fine. After the podcast ended is when my problem started.
Does that help?
@code3 Yes. There is some room for improvement, and already a number of requests on this topic.

@fidcal You're not the only one. This is quite a common question.
It does say what it does: if enabled it uses the zoom level of the current tab when navigating to other sites in the same tab. When disabled it uses the zoom level that was remembered from the last visit to that site. If the site was not visited before, it uses the default webpage zoom. It has taken me a long time to figure out this feature.
I agree it should have a privacy warning, but it is the default Chromium behaviour. Vivaldi could improve on this some time. Cookies store lots of data that could be a privacy issue.
Any new site that you visit is not recorded until you change the web page zoom on that site from whatever is your default webpage zoom.
Not having to click anything at all is much more convenient. If you zoom in or out on any site, the last used zoom level is remembered. For me, I may need to zoom in more at the end of the day.
This forum has its good points
It also has some bad points
And some quirks that remain to be discovered and understood
