I've started getting this issue regularly again.
One of my work laptops keeps on getting stuck with "clashes with another client" in the sync upload. When I log out and log in again, there will be old duplicates of notes I cleared months ago.
I recently cleared the data and re-connect all 9 devices... but annoyingly it's started again after only a few days. Having to continually scan my notes and bookmarks for duplicates and then look through all of them to determine which is the current version (dates and titles stay the same) is a real pain in the backside!
@ruudtes A Tip for You:
Help on Feature Requests
There are a number of feature requests on this topic. Please vote for those that you think would be helpful.
Enable Spellcheck in Settings, Webpages
Spellchecker in Settings
Consolidate Settings in a Single Place
Reorganize the Settings Dialog
Move Chromium Settings to Vivaldi's Settings
Vivaldi settings and configuration
Settings not visible
Countdown and Alarm Settings can be Setting in Vivaldi Settings
Different Settings (for different types of user).
Bottom-line: There are already too many settings for some users. Almost every update adds more options to the settings dialog, and users find it hard to navigate. The search field in the Settings Dialog is very helpful, but it does not find hidden settings
@MMurray Editing and removing addresses is fixed in latest snapshot (3.2 Release Candidate 1). You can update to it already if you want to (go here and look under "Downloads - Stable stream") or wait for a week or two until 3.2 is officially released.
Probably cloesly related to (VB-69090) Not returning to recently used tab
and also related to (VB-60204) When taking a tab out of the middle of the tab stack and placing it right next to the stack, positions for switching tabs are messed up (which was fixed by removing the possibility to remove individual tabs from a tab stack, if I see this correctly).
Every weekday I open 55 tabs. These are the websites I go to every day. I also have a list I open once a week, and another for M-W-F too.
On the everyday 55 list, I've found Vivaldi doesn't open them as fast as Firefox, but is waaaaay faster than the new Edge.
@lolmaus I don't think you can. The search suggestions made by Google when using their home page are based on many factors, like your IP/location, search history (if enabled) and others (cookies) to give you what it feels are "relevant" results.
When Vivaldi uses the address bar to create this list Google will also most likely base the returned results on IP/location but not sure what other factors it might use. I do think Vivaldi also sends cookies on search requests from the address bar/search field which is not good at all (might report that as a bug actually).
The limit of five results is I think hard-coded somewhere, don't think it can be changed. The reason is likely to not clutter the drop-down with too many results.
You can easily examine these results by using the DevTools and looking at network traffic when running the search URL in the address bar. The results will be returned in a standard format (JS array/JSON?) They will also contain more results than five.
For instance below are my results when using the Vivaldi built-in query. So pretty standard results, but Google clearly knows my location:
["test",["testosteron","teston","test corona","testosterone","testament","test microphone","test corona oslo","test elsykkel"]
From a local shell using curl and pretending to be Chrome, no cookies, but it still knows my location. Not sure how to account for the slightly different results from the above one:
["test",["teste for korona","testosteron","test corona","test elsykkel","teste seg for korona","teste korona oslo","test robotstøvsuger","test robotklipper"]
From a shell on machine located in the US:
["test",["testosterone","testing","test my internet speed","testicular torsion","testicuzzi","testimony","testicular cancer","testament"]
From a shell on a machine located in Germany:
["test",["teste dich","testosteron","testament","testerheld","testberichte","test mineralwasser","testo","testspiele bayern"]
Also note that by default, Vivaldi does not have a suggestions URL for Google, because it's not "approved" by them, so any search suggestions comes from the hack of "pretending" to be Chrome.
The way Chrome handles it is quite sensible. It's there as the top suggestion just like in Vivaldi but it's already selected (which tells me "this is what you'll get if you hit enter now") and when you press the down arrow for the first time you get the first autocomplete suggestion as we'd like. It works for mouse users too!
@mchipeur That's great
I kind of understand this from your writing "not using extensions. Just the web pages"
Feel free to add the extension in this thread with an explanation what it breaks:
Hi again, there is a list > https://help.vivaldi.com/article/full-reset-of-vivaldi/
We spoke about passwords not working and AFAIK preferences are also not changeable.
I will have a look at FreeFileSync, I use Grive at Linux and start Google sync manually at moment.
@steinarb Hello - what is your version of Vivaldi and OS, from Help > About?
Are you talking about the search field on the Start Page, or web search forms in general?
Are you using any extensions? Try disabling them, or try in a Guest Profile.
Have you remapped your keys, specifically the Focus Address bar one?
@Pesala said in Spellcheck to remain in enhanced mode:
@ineuw said in Spellcheck to remain in enhanced mode:
Is there a setting which ensures that the spellcheck remains in enhanced mode?
Are you sure that you want to send everything that you type in a text box to Google?
I guess that Privacy Settings would have to be left on.
I am revisiting this topic, and ask which dictionary is used by the Vivaldi "standard" spell-check?
Your point about privacy is not dismissed, in fact I am intrigued by it. But, I can't help to put matters in my perspective, which is; valuing my time more, because once a person connects to anywhere, through any place, privacy is gone. After all, I rely on several Google products, simply because they serve, help, and advance my interests. In that context, I must look at everything else as nonsensical *****.
But then this is me, and that's why I don't dismiss others' concerns.
