Hi, apologies if I'm on the wrong track with this reply. I've just installed vivaldi to try it out against my waterfox and firefox alternatives( one of which has a bad memory leak I feel ). So far it feels good and I like the interface but I found I could not click a search result and have it open in a new tab. I searched this forum and found similar requests. The tick box "open search in new tab" is useful in keeping search results safe in a separate tabbed window but I also use duckduckgo as my search engines in both search boxes. In the settings you can just click "open search result in new tab", other engines may offer similar. This is useful as the combination allows an independent tab for the search results and any clicked search result links will open the relevant page in a new tab, and as many tabs as are requested. This works well for myself and may be useful to others, I prefer this to memorising keystroke combinations etc. Now I have a similar setup to waterfox etc with other extra features that are a bonus, it's nice so far!

it selects the option that I circled first. usually in other browsers, said option is selected by default so it shows that it's the option being chosen by the enter key, then I press the down arrow to select the option below the circled option.
@stardust @Pesala Really cool
The main things that Vivaldi UX desiners missing thinking about "wide screens space usage on sides", that Site's UXs also thinking about same spaces. And more and more web sites (tools like JIRA, Confluence or Youtrack or any bootstrap based as examle) made different sidebars/side menubar/side buttonbar as main navigation. So screens with several "panels in a row" or even buttons in a row made it ugly.
Also I often use Second wide monitor for laptop - so some times screen is a wide sometimes no - so I don't want to change browser settings or remember more hotkeys to show pannel.
And finaly - users that prefer to extend their browsers by extension - wil not use vivaldi just cause they can make 'lego' from their chrome or opera or edge or other more popular chrome-ish.
Vivaldi user prefere to tune UX of their browsers using native build-in functionality.
I like and prefere vivaldi's download panel UX. And I dont want to get some extension somewhere from somebody unknown who may be will track someting about me just to show me their ugly imitation of pannel. In same time I already have perfect function already built-in but just with main button in wrong '<div>'.
There is a huge usability issue now due to the new tab reordering animation and Menu button placement: you can easily accidentally open tab in the new window when dragging tab to the left (and hovering over menu button)
@jesus2099 Your issue was a duplicate of VB-18245
Sorry to say, but fixed bug reports are not reopened as i know.
I am unhappy, that bug regressed and came back.
@luetage Thank u I'll try to rely more on quick commands, nonetheless i feel like smol lil button "Go to address" in address bar same as it is in quick commands would make vivaldi more predictable and cleaner.
@noneoftheabove Use fullscreen mode.
Assign shortcuts to show the address bar and tab bar.
Now you can create a command chain to enter fullscreen, display the address bar and the tab bar. Add a delay of 100 ms after entering fullscreen.
