@jrmgx said in Copy & paste has gotten even worse:
Also quite sad that is it not possible to follow the evolution of a bug because the bug tracker is not public.
You must think that there is a ton of discussion that goes on in the bug tracker; that's not the case. The next update to the bug will happen when a developer reports that a fix has been implemented. The fix will then get pushed out in a Snapshot build (and hopefully the Stable release as well) very quickly. When the fix is ready, you'll see it right away.
This bug is obviously not a trivial thing to fix... and please also rest assured that I'm doing everything that I can do to make sure that this bug doesn't lose focus.
@okkehel It's called a "tooltip" and it pops up whenever you hover the mouse pointer on a clickable UI element. Some users have 100 tabs per window; for them, the tooltip is only way that they can tell one tab from another. I don't think that there is any way to turn this off.
@doctordan Which version are you using? A ton of media fixes are included in the last two 1.15 snapshots.
As features are the raison d'être of Vivaldi, there will not be a pause in development of them. A slate of features was envisioned before the first public technical preview of the browser and, until those features are all included, the browser remains an unfinished product. On the other hand, all breaks and regressions introduced by new intakes of the updated underlying engine (Chromium) are always pursued aggressively. There is a motto posted in all Vivaldi offices, "Kill all bugs." The developers strive to do so.
@amanda121287 Shift and arrow selects text in text editors/fields and command-shift-arrow selects text from the cursor to the beginning/end of the line. This is intended behaviour on macOS. It shouldn't switch tab-focus, you should check keyboard settings in vivaldi://settings/keyboard/ to find out, if you have anything conflicting in there.
@okkehel Links from external apps closing Vivaldi has been mentioned a few times in the Snapshot release thread
@d3f4ult The settings for the New Tab Page seem to work for me but... if I close all Vivaldi windows and then open a new window, that window will always open with the Start Page regardless of what the New Tab Page is set to. I reported this glitch not too long ago - VB-37649.
Are there any other tips for mac users to playback video in a reliable manner? I often have a video play only the first 20 seconds or so, then refuse to play in Vivaldi. Fire up Chrome, put in the same URL, and the entire video plays without issue.
@luetage thank you so much for your concerns. it’s not amazing it’s normal to attend that Vivaldi will work. I don’t have time to repair permissions right now, as I am busy and can’t be sure it will fix it. Initially I thought it was related to VSync as I said. Even it’s unfixable, I’m fine.
BTW I still have older Macs in good condition & running. Why do you do you think everything is replaceable? :D I guess you can’t figure out I or someone else still using 10.9.x may have software that can’t be migrated/data, do you? Vivaldi runs smoothly on it. Grab even worked in window mode (can’t tell exactly when it stopped as I don’t use it often). I don’t depend on Grab to do screenshots.
I just report here an issue I think it may be related to the browser and may help its development. cheers!
