That's my question:
IS IT A BUG?
I know that it doesn't work - and I've reported that several times in this very forum (the one to which you were, for some reason, directing me towards).
My question is: Is it expected?
It's just that it's an unexpected behavior. The general expectation is that there's a repo rpm if you want to install the repo. That would be an easy way to do things, and in line with other RHEL programs.
I got the Search settings working. It looks like, if the Vivaldi zoom is set to a size higher than 100% it doesn't get highlighted. I have zoom set to 115%. I brought it down to 100%, then the Google Search settings got highlighted, so could go in and change the settings. But this must be some sort of a bug in Vivaldi. Chromium was set at 110%, but Search settings got highlighted.
@Iggy64 Before you reinstall, just try this (the chance the problem is in your ~/ is much greater than it would be in Vivaldi install dir):
rename ~/.config/vivaldi/Default/ to something different (e. g. Default_bak)
a new user will be created on next startup
browse some time with that profile; at least a day (24h) (of course you can change the settings)
if that doesn’t help, rename ~/.config/vivaldi and try again; this will reset also all your flags
@Eunoseer said in Drop-down menus for Developer Tools when in "Toggle device toolbar" not displaying next to menu button:
You bug is a duplicate.
FYI: VB-49323 "Device toolbar mode device switcher is broken with undocked dev tools"
@GraveDigger This is an International forum, not every member has English as their first (or even second) language; for that reason I tend to interpret what a post says rather than assume the opposite - ignoring spelling and wrong word usage (of course).
Hopefully, you will be able to adjust the mouse sensitivity settings
@lamarca said in Vivaldi will not open file browser to download:
As a moderator ping me any time. do you know
Bob Marley (a Jamaican singer) songs?
I know of Bob Marley but I don't listen to his music very often. I'm not a big fan of reggae. I like my classic rock & roll, from the 70s and 80s.
Lilo, I have the impression the links are in his mail client. It's not clear when the delay occurs.
1 - Vivaldi gets stuck in before redirecting to the address
2- The redirection is normal, however the page slowly loads.
@Gwen-Dragon said in Flash player won't start on my 2.9 version:
@gimpo Perhaps you should remove the adobe-flashplugin. One is enough.
sudo apt purge adobe-flashplugin
After purging and restarting Vivaldi the flashplayer animations works!
Thanks a lot.
@alphaDev All packages are signed by a GPG key and have a internal checksum hash which is checked wihile running Linux package installer.
You can setup the Vivaldi repo, please read https://help.vivaldi.com/article/manual-setup-vivaldi-linux-repositories/
Thanks again. Starting with all extensions officially disabled did not change anything. The mic/speaker are working fine in Vivaldi, I can even hear the phone dialing, but then there is no phone sound once connected.
All the other parameters don't seem to me to be at issue, since they all work fine with Vivaldi otherwise, and I can even use them in phone calls successfully in a clean Vivaldi user profile.
I guess I'll just open that other profile when I want to make calls. It's not too difficult a workaround.
As @Gwen-Dragon didn't clarify ... By default Vivaldi (and other Chromium-based browsers) uses your default system keyring to securely store passwords. If you did use Autologin, the first time you ran Vivaldi after starting a session you would see a prompt to open your default keyring. But as you don't use autologin the keyring is started automatically when you login and thus is completely transparent to you.
If you have both Vivaldi and another browser, you'd still see the login prompt only once for whichever browser is run first - once the keyring has been started any program that uses it will have access to it.
