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!
Edit: The video was updated to fix some typos and improve some notes.
A brief tutorial on customising Vivaldi.
There is no sound. Pause the video if you need more time to read the comments, and want to try out the tips for yourself.
Note: If you want to comment on the video, please comment under the video and not here to avoid disrupting this thread.
I completely understand, gotta purge Satan every now and again.
See this thread.
Try these steps:
Paste this into your address bar: vivaldi://settings/search#a
Open "Content settings"
Scroll down to "Plugins"
Let me choose when to run plugin content
I would like to offer my opinion about why I think Instant Messaging is a draw for a product like Vivaldi.
This is that Vivaldi is a communication tool in the market where Instant Messaging in one form or another is another view on to the utility which Vivaldi wants to offer. A well known productivity software and operating system company sells its own Instant Messaging system in to office environments because it is that important.
This is in effect no different to the Twitter Smart Phone app offering an embedded browser.
Even with a fast turn around time email can not compete with Instant Messaging in terms of short message convenience and speed.
I would suggest one reason for the uptake of email as opposed to Skype or FB is simply that which every email provider you use your contacts are still accessible and can receive your messages.
Maybe, Tox or CaliOpen are the way to go. The best solution will be the one which offers you your contacts.
Opera 3,4, 5, 6 in between 1997 and 2003 on windows
Opera 6 on Linux in 2001- 2004
Switched to Galeon/Phoenix/Firebird/Firefox as Opera on Linux was stuck at 6.x (6.4?) for a long time.
Once (2006?) Opera 7 or 8 for Linux was available I switched to it as I was disgusted from the memory bloat and wastage of Firefox.
Opera latest at the time between 2008 and late 2013 on Windows. Stuck with 10.X and 12.X for a long time.
Safari on OS X between 2008 and now, Opera 10,11,12 UI wasn't ever much good on OS X.
Since late 2013 IE 11 on windows.
Vivaldi is still lacking in 3 areas for me to switch. -
1.downloads on a tab instead of panel (sorry, panel on the left is just obnoxious, and the on one the right just doesn't provide enough space for the info it needs to show - full file name and path it is being saved to)
2. master password to lock the password store
3. not really a Vivaldi issue but a webkit one - since 2012 webkit, especially chromium wastes a ton of RAM - 6 tab with minor content (forums, text only, no pictures, minimal CSS) waste 420MB RAM. Opera 12.17 renders those the same and uses only 180MB RAM.
This is the only native extension for Vivaldi that I know of - and I don't know if it even works in the latest release.
There's a skin made by community member, widget, over here too.
And there's a whole thread about customizing Vivaldi started by An_dz over here.
People ask about small tweaks they'd like to make to their browser pretty frequently on the forums, and at least one person usually replies with a quick edit they can make to the browser's stylesheet that will have the affect they're looking for. Keep an eye out on the All Platforms subforum, because that's where most customization tips are posted.
As for what the devs' plans are for extensions in Vivaldi's future - I don't know. But I'm currently content in the knowledge that Vivaldi is already highly configurable, and that the developers are keeping the community in mind. I don't know what Vivaldi's future is, but it's gonna be good.
Do you mean this by side panel?
If so, I suggest you take a peek at the bottom of it, there's a small icon which'll display "Show panel" in alt-text when you hover it. Well that's where you want to click.
As for the search bar on the speed dial, I don't think you can. Unless you can JS modify the script used for this page (I've seen the local HTML page correspondent to Speed Dial, but I don't know about its JS file)
Concerning the last one, it's simple and tricky at the same time. The CSS is stored in C:\Users[Your username]\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application\188.8.131.52\resources\vivaldi\style\common.css
You can modify it easily with a bit of CSS knowledge, and you just need to search "address" in the text document and proceed with your additions.
They randomly take a colour from the favicon. I think they should complement it with the Android theme colour metatag though. It's set in some sites' HTML a theme colour that can be read by Google Chrome for Android and will recolor its interface to that of the website.
The most important for me is an alternative mouse combination Right Click + Wheel for Zooming!
BTW I am already using Right Click + Wheel (AHK script) for zooming in browsers. This is awesome!
I absolutely agree. This is the most effortless way to zoom. Firefox's Firegestures extension allows it.
Just created an account to say this: Please, PLEASE, when you add a feature, add an option to disable it!! I mean, the option seems to be there (–disable-smooth-scrolling) why not add it to the settings dialog? Or have I just missed it?
And here's a bug:
Open any website.
Klick any link on that website (which is not a pop up).
Let the page load.
Klick with your left mouse button in the address bar, hold it, don't let go.
Move your mouse, while still holding the left button, over the back button in the tool bar.
Let the left mouse button go.
Result: The back button gets activated and you'll go to the previous page.
Expected result: The back button won't get activated.
I believe this also works with the forward, rewind and fast forward buttons.
But hey, switching tabs seem to be faster. Good job!
I would not regard someone as an idiot because they downloaded executable files from trusted sources. However, I do regard people as idiots if they think that shouting and making a fuss makes their point better than polite feature requests and well reasoned arguments.
The point that you make is a good one. Warning users about the potential danger of executable files is obviously the right thing to do, but there should be an option to disable the warning for those who are computer-savvy, and accept the inherent risks associated with downloading software.
Vivaldi is using the Chromium rendering engine, so I presume that they would have to implement something to override this behaviour. It is still early days in the development of Vivaldi, and this is not a high priority by any stretch of the imagination.
Opera 12.17 also warns me that executable files are unsafe. I don't mind. The dialogue gives me a choice whether to download the file, run it, or cancel. However, if I use the right-click, save target as… route, then I can save it without any warning dialogues. Vivaldi also provides that option to bypass the warning dialogue.
