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-Dragon said in uBlock Origin not blocking ads and umatrix disabled:
@Kein You should not trust a report which is more 2½ year old.
The issue I've linked was for the sole purpose to show how far back the problem with Vivaldi goes, it was easier to ignore it and its internal changes 2 years ago already, rather then trying to implement convoluted fix of a workaround.
I've been test-driving uMatrix for a week and visited about 391 different domains and approximately 10% of them it did not work properly and some still were able to run 1st party/inline script despite them being blocked globally in extension. This is something that does not happen in Chromium, even custom builds like Ungoogled.
You simply cant rely on any privacy/blocker extensions in Vivaldi unless it was specifically accustomed to it and none of them are because it simply not worth developing basically whole new extension for 0.0001% market.
@fakakta said in Uninstall due to bugs:
I am reporting why I uninstalled here.
Your report is unfinished though and therefore of no real use to potential new Vivaldi users and existing ones -except for having created a generic negative vibe, which looks like your *intention- who wouldn't be on the same OS as yours and wouldn't use your particular extensions but would consider Vivaldi buggy because "they read it somewhere". So, in particular you didn't mention
a) on which OS you have tried Vivaldi, Linux, Windows, Mac OS, 32-bit or 64-bit, OS build number, Desktop environment etc
b) which Vivaldi branch you have tried, stable, snapshot, 32-bit/64-bit and which version number, for example 2.11.1811.52
c) what browser you tried to import your passwords from in conjuction with your OS, if I'm not mistaken what you have described only concerns Firefox -and not sure only on Linux?- and not with other browsers and other OS'es.
Further, bulk delete passwords is not a bug but rather your idea about how a software should work better for you, which is a request, which should be made in the appropriate sub-forum https://forum.vivaldi.net/category/113/feature-requests-for-desktop after you 've searched for an existing one already.
*Pop ups. So many pop ups, Vivaldi Sync doesn't work, you have a buggy browser, I don't have time to look for this, make it easier for people to report bugs, right from inside the browser would be best. I have uninstalled and will not be following up
Thank you everyone for having patience with me.
I have a setup I am...reasonably satisfied with. Admittedly I am juggling this browser and Brave back and forth (both here on W10, on Linux and on my Android phone). I might even keep both.
For now I am planning on browser-juggling for a month, at least.
(I solved my annoyance about the Speed Dial by literally making it identical to the bookmark bar by tagging the bookmark bar as the Speed Dial. It is actually less irritating than to have a few manually added shortcuts that I might or might not use on the speed dial).
@pana Welcome to the Community. Here are a few links for your bookmarks that you may find useful:

Vote for Add Key Shortcuts to Open Panels and Focus the Search Box
Ctrl+B does not open the Bookmarks Bar, and there is no search field on the Bookmarks Bar. I guess you mean the Bookmarks Tab, for which the default shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+B. There, the search field is focused automatically.
The Bookmarks Panel remembers whichever folder or bookmark was focused when you last used it. The above feature request thread asks for a specific shortcut to focus the search field on opening the Panels.
@chrismcknight Nice idea and even though I can't read the minds of the Vivaldi crew, I am not sure that is on their priority list.
Mobile plans can almost bankrupt one here in Canada (that's why I don't have one) and I'd also join but I don't see it as forthcoming.
@LorenAmelang said in eBay listing preview invisible, extensions appear offscreen:
Why create distinct icons if they aren't actually used?
Good question, they really should look the same for consistency and for the user being able to see at a glance what level is activated. I suspect the star/lightning icon means something is blocked. Not sure as I don't actually use the Vivaldi blocker, I use uBO instead. I've even hidden the Vivaldi blocker icon with a CSS mod.
Well done catching the Darkreader issue, I was able to replicate it here as well after installing the extension. I suppose you could report an issue on their Github page:
Or you could disable the extension on the eBay domain.

@barbudo2005 , currently I only use the Vivaldi Blockers, but with added uBO filters..
Clear URLs don´t block the trackers from the pages, but this in the URLs. This URLS which apart from the page directions, shows a large number of letters and numbers. f.ex. webadress/article/page number/84722437y83y32r32ryrwehrerwrh this last part redirects to a third party site with often your encripted data, and this is what ClearURLs blocks, apart alows to copy the clean URL from the context menu. It´s a good complement for ad and tracking blocker.
