Hey ! It's been a wonderful adventure those 30 days with all of you but I'm sorry to declare that it must end today.
The 6.4.3160.34 update finally cured my dev tools hiccup ! Hoorray !
It's been almost 5 minutes (five minutes !) since I opened Dev Tools and it stayed open.
Hi there, It's been years since this issue was reported and I've been getting around it but it's really annoying, do we've a date for this issue to be fixed? I'm also going to switch browsers, it's not great as I use Vivaldi for day to day work.
Go to Settings > Security > Show saved passwords. There will be an entry listed for that site - remove it.
Alternatively when visiting the site click the padlock in the address bar. This brings up a palette with site-related info and a link to Site settings. From there you can clear the (non-)password entry without having to search for the site.
A better solution would be to get a trackball and lift your fingers off the ball before you hit a button. That is what I have been doing for years and I have never had the problem of a tab becoming a window.
Having this issue as severe, on a patched version of Mac OS Catalina on an older Macbook Pro if this helps at all. People were saying it's what Vivaldi is built on 'over' Chrome to be so feature-rich. I notice no problems like this in regular Chrome, Safari or Firefox so far, at all.
