Yes, that would certainly be nice, but I'd assume that such a feature would have to be implemented for Gnome, KDE, XFCE, Unity, [i3, awesome, sway] ... each (or is there some common API that all these Desktop Environments/Window Managers use?).
I searched on this topic a bit and found out that X apps should be able to use _NET_WM_XAPP_PROGRESS window property (I found this only for Cinnamon, but to me this seems universal enough that also other DEs (in fact, panels) should support it). About Wayland (and others) we don't have to care for now, because Chromium is X-only now AFAIK.
@section31x said in HOW TO: make vivaldi open downloaded files automatically:
I don't want files opening automatically.
Nobody forces you, this functionality (if accessible, because it is already implemented) is optional and is by file type.
It's probably a security risk and best to leave that option out.
The security of a program should not be at the expense of usability and comfort for the user.
In this case, moreover, this is a poor excuse. All the most popular browsers implement this function. Chromium, on which Vivaldi is based, has it.
I chose Vivaldi for its flexibility, despite its many bugs (which I trust will be solved little by little), and the freedom it allows the user. So I don't accept that such functionality is not implemented with the poor excuse of security.
Not all of us use Windows. And those who do have to be careful and/or use an antivirus.
Not allowing downloaded files to be automatically opened does not make it safer.
The management of that downloaded file is done by the operating system, not Vivaldi.
For example, .torrent files are downloaded to be opened with another program (by themselves they are useless), opening them automatically with the browser is, for me, essential.
Pardonnez cette réponse tardive. Je vous remercie vivement de vos messages. Et permettez moi de vous regarder comme les gardiens d'une liberté, d'une indépendance d'esprit toutes choses véritablement peu communes.
La question du téléchargement de photos est réglée. Depuis quelques jours apparait " un petit drapeau " en haut et à droite de l'écran avec l'indication téléchargement terminé.
Enfin vous savez certainement que " Mojave " est en fin de course. Il sera remplacé par " Catalina " dans les prochaines semaines dont la version est, je crois, déjà disponible en version Beta pour les experts.

Этот перец ваш знакомый, что вы так за него яростно, со всей большевисткой ненавистью впрягаетесь, когда в его отношении пользователи выражают недовольство? И еще раз повторюсь: человек пишущий в своем профиле ПРОГРАММИСТ, по определению должен разбираться в настройках браузера и не только в тех, где чек-боксы выставляют, а и в правке кода (кастомизации).
Вам первое предупреждение за флуд и оскорбительный тон в адрес собеседников.
In previous Snapshot there was a fix for it, you might want to try it if this solves the problem for you
[Regression] Opening link in background tab does not trigger download save popup (VB-51936)
Current snapshot is https://vivaldi.com/blog/snapshots/vivaldi-2-6-rc-1-vivaldi-browser-snapshot-1566-31/ and the fix will get its way into the 2.6 final hopefully.
@GenXstarX said in Downloads panel - resizable from bottom of page:
Dude, you know, this useful stuff you talk about is the 'page title' this is what the titlebar is supposed to be used for to display this in full un truncated.
Secondly, put you tabs vertically in the sidebar.
images below, should help you 'get it':

If you don't have the tabs at the top of the page, why are you complaining about tabs at the top being in the title bar?
I don't want the tabs in a sidebar because that takes up too much of my screen space. Having them at the top (in the title bar) sacrifices a small amount of space in favour of not losing 10% or more of the width of the screen. And I don't have a need to see the full page title; if I ever need that I just hover the mouse over the active tab.
@GenXstarX said in Downloads panel - resizable from bottom of page:
Dude, your head is naturally 'broken'!
Go to the Bookmarks menu, select Manage Bookmarks
What do you see?? All the bookmarks displayed in in the browser window area, not in a side bar why?
Because the content cannot fit practically in the sidebar.
Because the sidebar cannot be made wide enough for the content, it is limited fixed width.
Why 2, because also the user may have a vertical tab bar taking it's own width.
That, (why i even need to explain something so logically simply is beyond me) is what makes the actual browser window area the ideal location and to disclose this information, is best suited to raising a curtain from the bottom to expose.
Do you put any thought into anything or do you just 'off the cuff' resist things for arguments sake?
Ok, so I think i've been babysitter for too long in this thread, bye.
First of all, I stated my opinion. There is no reason for you to outright attack me by calling me stupid, calling me a babysitter and saying I'm just a troll. Best case it will simply take away credibility from your arguments, and worst case it will get you banned.
Secondly, press F6. What do you see? All the bookmarks displayed in a side panel, and not in a browser tab. Why? Because the content fits in a side panel. Why? Because you don't need all the available information about the bookmarks and features for managing them at all times; if you need that you can open the bookmarks page.
Again, I don't use a vertical tab bar since that takes up way more screen space than a horizontal tab bar. I do use side panels since they allow me to view content on the page while using the panel, without sacrificing any more height, and with the option to close them when they are not needed anymore.
I'm not simply arguing for the sake of it. I'm stating my personal preferences, as a contrast to yours. I do this to make it clear that some people prefer things the way they currently are, so that if the Vivaldi team makes any changes they will know to do something that will please us both.
@coltlking Hi, there's another request which is more generic and work for many file types and protocols. Please vote for this to avoid duplication: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/24141/support-for-mime-types
I'm not programmer, but i think this would need a special more object for the same purpose (another object means less workforce on others features and maintaining) whereas reusing download panel as it is currently, with autorealignment (like web page) to get something similar (and why not better than the simple download bar), would satisfy everyone and more, and would have less code... This'd be a dynamic interface.
