Hi Everyone, in the past 2-3 months, Vivaldi has stopped working with Superhuman's email extension. I have used Vivaldi and Superhuman off and on over the years without issues with older Vivaldi builds. To test I dowloaded
an older v3.5 build of Vivaldi and Superhuman worked as expected.
I had the same problem and I digged a bit into the settings and found the solution
•Open settings and search for "Links"
•Disable Allow Text Selection in Links
After that you should be able to use super drag on links
I hope this helps you
There is some kind of a bug in Vivaldi with the extensions, which are using Manifest Version 3.
The problem is with the new service worker which replaced background script .
I made multiple tests and workarounds but without success.
The results: service worker is started only when the browser starts. It is working for few seconds and then goes to inactive state .
This is the expected behaviour. Then the bug occurs.
The service worker never wake up again and we cannot start it anymore except with browser restarting.
I can recommend you to make a bug report as me.
My version is: Vivaldi 4.2.
@texzetech It seems only (subscribed?) UK users - and maybe VPN users, even if listed as possible issue - can test this.
By the way try the usual steps:
Disable/Remove other extensions to exclude a cross issue; let us know your own;
Contact beebs to know if the extension may work with any chromium based browsers different than chrome (as it seems to be a commercial/free-to-use addon).
Report as a bug hoping the addon don't use exclusive chrome APIs which are unsupported on vivaldi. For example, the API for store payments beebs use(d) is not baked in vivaldi being a chrome only feature. The same is for some authentication methods to google servers. Only web sign-in works. Otherwise, I fear, you are forced to use chrome for that.
I just released v2.0, it's a complete rewrite of the code that is far better on getting the images and also allows mods to create custom thumbnails (this is an advanced super user feature, more info at the release page).
Everything is local
v2.0 can grab the GitHub sharing image without problems
That would need modding the Vivaldi UI, that would need constant updates. As an extension I'm limited to what an extension can do and the speed of the internal Vivaldi thumbnail grabber.
@doctorg Very smart! That would require the webRequest API and permissions for vivaldi.com tho. Didn't test yet but vivaldi.com might even be added to a list of exceptions the extension is not allowed to touch.
@spookyduck Was a bug report created?
I have the same issue I think since Vivaldi 3.6/3.7 and now still in 4.1.2369.21 (Stable channel) (32-Bit).
If there is a bugitem or discussion where this issue is tracked and discussed, I would like to participate, since I have the problem still afer a clean install without any extensions. From my investigations its related to the custom theme, but not caused by specific colours. I only remove teh checkboxes for the accent color in the Vivaldi light/standard theme.
I downloaded v1.9.2 from the Stable release linked on the first post.
I applied the fix to the plugins\global.js as described by inanis in this post.
This got things installed and working.
However I had a problem when it came to adjusting the themes. The color picker would never show up.
So here is a change I made that is working for me in case anyone needs it.
In the 'options' folder you will need to edit 'options.html'
Change line 880 FROM:
<input type="color" id="color_picker" style="position:absolute; top:-1000px; width:1px; height:1px; overflow:hidden;">
Change line 880 TO:
<input type="color" id="color_picker" style="position: absolute; left:349px; top:2948px; width:1px; height:1px; ">
After the above options\options.html changes for me that put the color picker below the theme area.
Then I could modify the Dark Fox theme as shown in this screenshot with Manager Window open set to Saved Sessions, the right-click menu displayed and hovered, an example set of tabs pushed out to 15 child tabs deep, and the color picker:TreeTabs.jpg
Keen observers might note the panel has a title which was added in sidebar.html.
To get a named session as show:
Select Save To Disk for that Saved Session
Name file how you want session to appear.
Import Session and it will have named you gave Save file.
