@Acada said in Half sync?:
the switching tabs
I don't think I understand what you mean here?
Sync will work with remote tabs (the ones you have open on other devices), and will show them in the cloud () menu next to the closed tabs menu ().
But it won't actually open tabs in the tab strip for switching.
@tylerntd Please open vivaldi://components , have look at Widevine section on bottom of the page and press Update button. Now tell me the version you see.
Try reinstalling of Vivaldi 2.8 with Installer from https://vivaldi.com/de/download/.
I remember some Google Web Store had some extensions saving form's content to avoid form data loss when restarting the browser.
If you are in Windows - it is possible in Windows to set different volume levels in each program. Right-click on the volume control icon in the system tray and select to open sound control (or go through Windows settings or control panel to get to it). If a program is playing a sound you'll see it listed with a slider to control it. See if Vivaldi is set too low.
@IWSBHT said in Disable tab hibernation:
the flags have disappeared as expected, we can on blame Chromium devs at this point, they are probably enforcing the behaviour, no idea.
@Pathduck said in Weird error on Google, unable to click first search result:
@Catweazle I don't know - I don't get any ad from Google on Startpage. There is no indication on the first link that it's an ad. Even with adblock disabled. It just looks like this:
The first link I can't click, but on the second I can ...
Although it is not specified as ad, it obviously is. Maybe Google, since everyone uses adblocker, needs to create something where the unsuspecting click, not necessary in other browsers controlled by Google, such as Chrome, Opera and Firefox.Doubtful ethical tricks
I'm still bitter that Mister Tetzchner choose Chromium/Blink as the base for Vivaldi.
If not for Chromium/Blink we would not have Vivaldi. One reason why Opera failed was the huge cost of maintaining the Presto rendering engine.
ths has nothing to do with tabs. could be also like automatically closing a profile/window and opening the other without noticing it.. profiles should be for different people using this. whats the sense, when everybody can use also the profile of one another?
@ajquotes You mean, the login was stored and shows up in Vivaldi → Settings → Privacy?
Please check if it works in Private Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) to reduce impact of a installed extension.
You may test it in a fresh test profile by creating one in Manage User or using Guest View.
//EDIT: Your issue happens with which Vivaldi, OS and desktop version?
@Pathduck Yes, same here. I'm not really doing stuff with databases. So I don't know if those settings are from within the DB structure.
But seeing that Vivaldi never changed it, or VACUUMed by itself, suggests it either always uses that setting, or it's in the file (or both..)
As for the uptime: Mine is a laptop, and suspended if I don't need it. I really only reboot after a larger system upgrade (kernel, systemd,
And yes, xkcd rules
@auipga I my wee mind, I'd think you'd do the deduplication in FF (or whatever browser), then perform the Export/Import.
That way you'd only have to deal with dupes caused buy bookmarking the same site in multiple browsers.
A bit of history regarding Jon von Tetzchner's involvement with browser development and businesses is in order, first at Telenor, then at Opera, and now with Vivaldi. Initially, after first being developed as an intranet browser at Telenor in 1994, Opera was established as a stand-alone business in 1995; and an Internet browser was released in 1996 as shareware (v2.0). The early versions were offered with a free trial period leading to paid products. In late 2000 (v5.0), Opera issued a free version that included advertisements instead of the free trial version, along with its paid version. Until 2005, Opera existed with both ad-supported and paid versions. Then (v8.5), Opera began offering a single free browser version that derived its income only from favored placements (search engines, pre-loaded bookmarks, etc). Vivaldi, since its inception has also been structured to derive its income from favored placments.
This history is relevant because, after over two decades of creating browsers and the businesses to distribute them, it's certain that Jon has a full grasp of the economics of providing a useful browser to users while operating a going business concern. Though business economics are always subject to review as time and conditions may change, nevertheless Jon's business model currently does not include issuing a paid version. Given his lengthy business experience and innovation in the browser field, as well as his long experience with various browser revenue models, he undoubtedly has sound reasons for his current business model, and I choose to defer to his judgment in the matter.
@belisarius said in Issues with last round of updates (on Android and Windows 10):
I do not have the same issue on a guest profile
Well, that shows that "the browser freezes when I right-click" is not a Vivaldi problem "per se", it is something to do with your profile.
As guest stops extensions loading at all - disabling may not remove all the extension effects, you could try renaming the profile folder "Default" (see help/about for profile directory path) and then add extensions 1 at a time and re-test.
Or just remove all extensions and only add (one at a time) the ones you really, really want.
