Web Developer Toolbar messed things up. I think it was the extensions display that got corrupted, but it has been a while since I got rid of it and I am not entirely sure.
Live HTTP Headers stopped working for me.
I use someone else's version of User-agent Switcher now. I have a new bookmark checker and a new YouTube high definition setter.
User-Agent Switcher 1.1.5
Bookmarks Checker 1.4
YouTube Auto HD + FPS 1.6.4
Oh my god it works perfectly! Thank you very much for being patient with me. The Help Page has it all there ( https://help.vivaldi.com/desktop/navigation/start-page/ ), and now I understand it that Vivaldi had long ago provided that option to use alternate Speed Dials.
Now I have the perfect browser! So happy about this.
Hi, if you have an extension as .zip file you can open the extension page with Ctrl+Shift+Esc and drag/drop it from the file manager to the Vivaldi page. You need to have the developer switch on.
@eugenesv LOL, my old UserJS url2title from 2006 does the same and works nice.
Just download, save as url2title.user.js, open Extension manager, activate Developer mode, and drag file into extension manager on extension icon in middle of page to install.
Will never be removed by troublesome Chromium extension management, Chrome & Co. do not use blocklist for userJS, i checked this.
@luetage I know. But a vBlock Origin under mixed licence made with a collaboration between Gorhill [backend] & Vivaldi [frontend] won't be a bad thing to hope for; but yeah, likely won't happen ^^
Probably I'll switch to uBO- when the popup and adding "lists" will work; hopefully before January 😃
@ClaYMan01 I do not use Bitwarden.
I know, that can happen Vivaldi shortcuts interfering with extension's one.
Have you seen https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/69541/guide-make-extension-keyboard-shortcuts-work-windows-10-11?
@Crabb99 It may be just because you are new, and your reputation points were too low. Now that you have two, you might be able to edit the post. If not, never mind.
If you remember next time, you can submit a new topic as a question, and mark it as resolved when a suitable answer is given (if you find one for yourself, mark your own reply as the correct answer).
This may be fixed, at least partially, in 5.4. You can visit the bookmarks, calendar, history, and notes pages with the new tab page set to controlled by extension, but the startup options might still be broken.
You can use the startup option Last Session without issue and Homepage and Specific Pages as long as they aren't the start/new tab page. Using the Start Page option or setting chrome://newtab/ as a specified page will lead to a startup with a blank page, but all new tabs work correctly.
Might need a new bug report since it is a new broken behavior.
@DoctorG There are no YouTube downloaders in the Chrome Web Store. You're not supposed to download YouTube videos, so they don't allow them in the Store.
There are some you can install outside of the Store though. You just have to search for them.
Tested with that extension. When the Vivaldi "new tab page" is set to be "controlled by extension", these bugs happen...
The address field doesn't auto focus after opening Vivaldi.
The extension doesn't show in private window, despite setting the extension to "allow in incognito".
When opening a secondary normal window, the extension doesn't show in the first default tab.
