@GodGoku Idm works, but sometimes may fail in Vivaldi.
Have you enabled Vivaldi in IDM settings?
You should have an IDM extension here: chrome://extensions/
The extension - which is in IDM folder - is installed?
(Guide is for chrome, but still valid for Vivaldi due chromium nature).
Are you on Vivaldi Stable or snapshot? (Snap could have some issue due newer chromium version. But could also work fine).
I had troubles (crash on pdf viewer) with older version, so ensure extension is on 6.32.3 version.
Newer version seems to work on youtube too (where usually fails)
Also, current Vivaldi have no official support for 3rd party DM. I'm asking for an old feature from Opera (presto), which allow user to redirect download link to 3rd party DM automatically, or manually via Save dialog.
@afsarpasha Ideally this would be possible, however in my experience not all web servers correctly report the size of a download before you make it.
I have often seen in the downloads panel a download being marked as "100%", but continuing to download, because the server didn't say how big the file was.
With this in mind, it would be very tricky to implement this such that it would always work, without starting the download first.
You already posted in the Feature Request forum two months ago.
Do Not Rename Video Downloads
Feature Requests and bugs will be fixed in due course, when they reach the top of the list. There is no need to post again that such and such a feature was not added yet, or that a bug was not fixed.
@Pesala said in "Open With" in Download Manager:
@astro46 The team are always working to improve the browser. Their priorities may not be the same as yours and mine.
I asked Jón about the Decision-making process some time ago
All it takes to open any downloaded file is to click the magnifying glass in the Downloads Panel, then double-click the file when it opens in your file manager.
I think that we already know this. This has been the only way to view some pdf through vivaldi. Though I never bothered going through the downloads panel. Since I have to go through the download saving windows already, I know where the pdf is saved.

@lonm said in Resource Sniffer:
It seems like this could be achieved by looking at the network tab of the browser inspector and reloading a page.
Does it add any more functionality than that?
@terere said in Resource Sniffer:
But you can do this already in a much better and powerful way with the developer tools. It is even easier than selecting it from a menu since you can just open and close it with the
F12 keyboard shortcut.
Thanks guys, but the point the the OP was making was that the user does not have to use the Developer Tools. This is about saving time.
For a more comprehensive search, the user can use the Developer tools, but to quickly grab something, a sniffer tool would be so much faster (approx only 3 mouse clicks).
What exactly is so hard about pressing F12?
That is one single action, not 3 clicks.
The Developer tools remember your choice preference. If the OP constantly checks Network connections, hitting F12 will open directly that every single time.
I was going to create a new request, but this seems under the scope of a download manager anyway, so I'll add it here...
Sometimes I find myself forgetting I had already downloaded a file and doing it again two or three other times. The fact that I'm terrible at managing the downloads folder doesn't help much either...
My request/suggestion is that if when downloading a file, that file is already present in the Downloads panel and if the actual physical file it points to hasn't been deleted yet then, instead of activating the Downloads panel and downloading the file again, it could simply activate the Downloads panel and point to the already existing downloaded file. The information of each file in the Downloads panel already contains useful information for this, like the URL the file was downloaded from (and maybe even the date of the file if you think that's important).
There might be a small warning (a tooltip, maybe) to let you know that this is a previously downloaded copy - in some cases the same URL corresponds to a file generated in runtime which may be different and you may actually want to download a new version of it.
This would save bandwidth and avoid creating duplicate files in the file system. I think this would be particularly effective in a cell phone, where file management itself is not as advanced as in a desktop computer...
@vbop said in Vivaldi need to have in-built Ad Blocker, Multi threaded Download Manager and Internet Speed up:
I fail to see why a built in ad-blocker is necessary since there are several very good ad-block extensions like ublock. Just because Opera has it is not a good excuse. In fact I would be very wary about built in stuff like ad-blockers/download managers since they have the potential to cause privacy issues.
How better DL manager can cause privacy issues? Also - ad-blocker can at the worst improve user privacy, i.e. prevent from tracking user…
Also - those were the features of the good ol' Opera...
