I don't know how many times I've accidentally clicked "Close Other Tabs" by accident when trying to click "Reopen Closed Tabs". After an instant of panic I then waste the next next few minutes reopening everything.
I would like to have the option to remove this from the menu if possible. I'm not sure who uses this, and for when/what for?
For now, I'm going to try jam "Ctrl+Z" into my memory to avoid that tab menu entirely.
Don't worry about the "Open New Tabs In Background" because it doesn't work like you think it would work. The only way I got it working close to what it was on Opera and many other GOOD browsers in the past is to use the "Force Background Tab" extension.
At least that extension did what Vivaldi should have added a long time ago, the ability for a person to use the left mouse button to open an EXTERNAL link in a background tab. If the link is in the same domain, it would work like a normal right mouse button and open in same tab.
Vivaldi would have none of that. You mean a working extension that does what users want? The last two "updates" they broke the function and randomly causes problems if you use mouse gestures to close the window to the right of your tab instead of your current tab. It would switch tab if you move to a tab left of your position, but if you clicked on the right side of the tabs, it does not switch windows.
Vivaldi is focused on one important thing; creating useless features. People want this ability to open EXTERNAL links in background tab for YEARS and they will NEVER RESPOND. However, they have free time to add stuff like 1980's games to the browser. They need to get their act together. At the minimum, fix the damn bugs that keeps cropping up in each release. Its like a landmine with every release. You KNOW new bugs will crop up. You almost have to find a version that has the least destructive amount of bugs and keep that revision for years.
Enough of my rant, but Vivaldi don't care about users when it comes to this feature. The create a "New Tab from Link Opens in Background" that doesn't work properly. Its become a running joke. Opera got their user interface right but they switched to Chrome and went downhill fast. Opera original was the fastest and the best interface. Too bad they were not able to maintain and compete with the chrome wannabes.
The tab-bar-stretching-when-closing-a-tab appears fixed in this snapshot. Thank you!
I lied. In snapshot 1.5.644.7 the behavior is still happening. I don't know why it appeared gone except I have a lot more tabs open now.
@seasonly Perhaps, and whether it can be used in some way.
The Tab Tweaks extension allowed to change, in particular, the tab height, font size, line spacing, and others, without using any hidden features. The number of rows was set implicitly, it was determined by these parameters. That is, it was possible to get more than 2 lines, but I was satisfied with this type of tabs (compact and informative, in my opinion).
Thank you! I've seen other people mention this problem in snapshots a while back. Back then, it happened even when using the keyboard shortcut and not just when using the trackpad gesture I described above. The bug disappeared for a while, but is back now with the gesture-only twist.
Please add the ability to specify the URL that new tabs open with (instead of Speed Dial) and also fix the horizontal menus which have been broken ever after 1.0.352.3 – once you click on one menu, you should be able to mouse over to the other menus without needing to click on them.
I recoil at the device integration. Leave my things be. Rolling back.
Oh, and I removed the advertisement label on the Vivaldi Browser header under Jon's Wikipedia profile. Haters gonna hate. You're welcome.
