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
Gwen, that is completely useless then.
If you hit a malware page, it will infect the system with what ever account you are running the browser at that time, so it will be able to read the passwords. Same if you download a virus or get infected any other way, if your user account can read them, them every other program and software in your system can, even other non browser softwares can read them. If you search for it, there are even password readers for Chrome to turn them into plain text. This is why I think its completely useless. At least Firefox has a master password, nothing can read the data unless you unlock it. This is similar to password managers, but its still very bad because you would unlock them to use your browser and it would stay unlocked all the time.
Granted, you would probably do the same with a password manager, but the difference there relies in the fact that since its running as a independent software in your system from the browser, malware hitting your browser can't attack it directly, it would had to be an attack at the OS level which is harder to do. If the password manager is linked to the browser, they can try to access it by exploiting something directly in the browser tab, hence why I think it's a bad idea and this is why Google did not bothered to make their password manager safer because they actually explain there is no way to secure it if its running in the browser. Not at least in a way that it will be usable for what people want which is filling logins.
If you really want to have something at least a bit more secure, you would not use a password manager build into your browser. Form data filling is fine, for non sensitive data like filling up your name, street, others. But you don't want your browser to auto fill passwords by its own, since it's an easy attack target, any crafted page with the correct malware will trigger to dump your password into them without your interaction and since exploits are found all the time on browsers nobody should feel comfortable with something like this.
HOW will you notify us all that a new VERSION is ready?? As it stands now as far as I can tell we have to go to .com page and see what is downloading there. Are there any other BETTER choices or solutions.
Make speed dial for the "Featured Blogs" section and check that every week, they are trying to make the updates weekly now.
Thank you for the link, Helmers. I meant something more classical, in a similar spirit to [http://calligraphyletters.org/letter-downloads/loversquarrel/calligraphy-letter-v.jpg], to evoke classical music (and like I said, by its curves, perhaps remind one of a musical G cleff). Oh well, it's just a potential idea.
Two changes in build 188.8.131.52:
When selecting part of a URL in address bar, OnMouseDown starts text selection from the left, I would prefer to select from this exact spot This is now worse, OnMouseDown I cannot select part of the URL at all
[Mac] Open a new tab with Speed Dial, go to any site, then go back. Now you can use two-finger swipe gesture to go forward (see that arrow on the right?) which will crash the browser Swipe gesture disabled for now
Also, with mouse pointing to a Menubar on Mac fullscreen window controls should slide down to make room.
