This is the major obstacle for me at the moment.
I have enabled GPU and the #ignore-gpu-blacklist option and I can play youtube videos by 50% chance.
I wish the dev team will find workaround for this issue in the near future.
So making it insensitive is not really a loss if you want predictable behaviour.
@chas4 said in Sync not working:
@gwen-dragon Wanted to see if anyone else was having the issue first (see if it was just a Vivaldi on macOS only or other OSes too).
Side note @Gwen-Dragon Were you on MyOpera also? (user name look familiar)
Yes, i was there, as a internal tester and in the Opera forums. But i left Opera after Opera Next came up and with Vivaldi appearing on the stage.
Problem with color profile of monitor and Vivaldi does not get/selects the needed one?
Please try this:
Open Vivaldi internal chrome://flags/#force-color-profile
Set in dropdown to sRGB
@redfinito The popup is created by the website, but Vivaldi blocked the content in this frame popup because it is done over insecure (mix SSL and non-SSL) connection or the web server has restricted injection of code in webpage.
disable-accelerated-video-decode => no videos are displayed, i.e. short videos on BBC-news site; enable it again: videos are displayed again. Permission for flash has te be given, ortherwise videos do not show.
Open the start page. Then Tools --> Developer Tools
The touch bar controls from chrome are there, however none of buttons work execept for the open new tab one.
Also if anyone wants this in Vivaldi, you should probably vote for the feature request: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/24390/support-for-macbook-touch-bar
@ryanjohnjackson said in Slacking on standard features and bug response:
The forum tends to hint that these issues either don't exist or no one will ever change them which makes me feel like I'm making a bad decision.
The forum, understandably, tends to reflect people defending something they like when they get the feeling it's being devalued. But Vivaldi philosophy is to take user feedback into account and try to offer what's wanted - most popular first. But the reason for the existence of Vivaldi is new features, not copying other browsers. It is born out of a dissatisfaction with the mainstream, and it attracts new users only through its differences. Time spent aping the mainstream is time spent failing to attract eyeballs, and thus failing to ultimately have enough users to pay for itself. That said, there is also the effort afoot to keep from losing users because something new users would take for granted is not yet ready. The Team can't afford to short change either effort in pursuit of the other. It can't be either/or. It has to be both. There is in fact no slacking on "standard" features, and between five and fifty bugs are fixed every day. There are thousands to work through, and regressions are introduced weekly by changes in Chromium. And Vivaldi has to intake Chromium updates or risk both security holes and becoming incompatible with its own rendering engine.
You're saying these things are on an official list that I missed somewhere?
No official list. Just discussions with the Team.
Why I want open in background as a default option:
If I'm reading an article and the article references another link, I open that tab in the background as I read the article and keep reading. This is my default way of not getting distracted by new info. Having it as a secondary function takes me out of my reading every time.
For now, it might help you to build a new habit with middle-click
-I feel I need to shout about the default of background tab because it feels like it's part of the vivaldi culture
No, no need to shout. Just upvote the existing feature request. Since there are already four ways to do it, it's not yet a priority to introduce an option to modify that menu.
"with the unfinished Bookmarks Bar" I'm guessing you're saying it's not complete?
The bookmark icons issue exists for me in win 10 and mac 10.12 after importing from chrome
Favicons aren't imported. They are fetched when sites are visited. Due to a difference in database structures, they can't be imported presently. But they are synced.
To end, for me the browser is 95% to perfect. Once vid is fixed on mac and bookmarks bar behaves normally it's like 98%. That last 2% is my frustration with background tabs. I love all the other options, felt like this is left out on purpose since it's standard most the time.
Video has been fixed on Mac more than once. Chromium and Mac OS updates keep breaking it. Hopefully a durable fix can be designed.
Hope this isn't tl;dr lol
Yeah, really, it was. :)
