I created a tool to help with this: Vivaldi Thumbnail Generator
It allows you to generate nice-looking, easily readable thumbnails. It supports changing the icon size and background color.
You can batch create thumbnails for all your bookmarks at once too!
I'm still working on it and updates are frequent so check it out and let me know what you think
Here is my own Speed Dial created with it:
@IdanAdar @Gwen-Dragon said in Developer tools debug does not respond to click:
The not-working developer tools in docked mode (after reaching a breakpoint) is a ugly bug preventing debugging extensions and JS on websites. Not nice.
But works with undocked dev tools window.
My start page (new tab page) is set to Show Background Image with Desktop Wallpaper. I have my desktop wallpapers cycle once an hour or so, and whenever my desktop background is very high resolution, it causes Vivaldi to be extremely slow every time I open a new tab.
For example, try this image: Tesla Press Kit > Photos > Energy Products > Powerwall 2 > Powerwall_retail_graphic.jpg.
Now granted this 121MB image will of course take everyone a ton of effort to render, not just Vivaldi. But why does rendering this image bring the rest of the browser to a standstill, and every single time I open a new tab? Image rendering should take a backseat to interface navigation and so on.
I'm sure this is much easier said than done. When I open the image in the Windows 10 Photos app, I can see a very low-resolution preview for a few seconds, after which it shows the fully loaded image. Maybe something like this could also be done in the rendering engine? My guess is this would require edits to the Chromium engine as well, but it would be a really nice improvement.

Is there a collective thread for beginner questions?
It is best to start a new thread for each question if you cannot find the answer in Help or with a forum search.

@Gwen-Dragon : indeed but it's not really the problem here.
I probably have bad formulated my issue. What I was pointing out is the non-consistent behavior of tab cycling: sometimes I jump to the next tab, sometimes I have the preview. That's not 100% of the time/consistent.
I've understood that you need to keep Ctrl pressed to have the preview (then you switch with Tab) but problem is that this Ctrl key is sometimes up/not pressed anymore when I have the preview...
So, either there is a bug in Vivaldi, or I have an hardware issue with my keyboard (system thinks this key is still pressed)...
I appreciate the reply. In the past, maybe 4 years ago now, I was trying to move my numerous site settings from one instance to another. Through a bit of trial and error I was able to work out exactly which files were necessary from within the profile to do it.
I suppose for the foreseeable future I'm going to have to leverage various deployment tools & write some scripts if I want to simplify and ensure the accuracy of configuring someone else's browser without access to their machines. The 60+ year-old generation is generally fearful of breaking things when modifying their technology heavily, even when they have someone walking them through it. Or when not fearful of actually "breaking" things, afraid they'll make a change they don't want and then be unable to figure out how to revert it.
So I'm trying to put together a fully automated tool to give to people that can work on already installed browsers that will set certain options, install a handful of extensions and then configure those as well. The less user intervention required the better.
@Lucas-Sichardt said in iFrame content not working:
of course you are right, but of course I cannot expect that visitors of my website will do this.
I think visitors of your page do not always block Third Party Cookies.
For those who do you should add a box telling visitors they have to allow Third Party Cookies to view the map.
That's why I'm in contact with the Plotaroute developer on this topic...
I wish all the best for a fix.
(Da bin ich sehr gespannt was die sagen!)
@Pesala said in Bug: Dead crow on window close:
The dead bird is, I believe, inherited from Chromium
Chrome/Chromium use another image:
The "dead tab" doesn't produce negative emotions because tabs aren't live beings. And if we talk about birds, the bird could have more cartoon appearance, like Twitter logo. Again, it will eliminate or at least reduce the negative emotions/associations.
