@Ayespy macOS builds are different from Windows/Linux. Vivaldi used to have a "Show Close Window Confirmation Dialog" but the setting never worked, so the devs removed it and (very recently) replaced it with Chromium's solution: Hold ⌘Q to Quit (or whatever Quit keyboard shortcut you have defined). Unfortunately, they neglected to add an "off switch" to Vivaldi's Preferences, so I filed VB-52231.
In chrome://settings there is a setting called:
Show warning before quitting with ⌘Q [enable/disable]
You can use this to disable the Quit Confirmation dialog in the current 1525.4 Snapshot. Future macOS builds will have the following setting:
[✓] Show Quit Confirmation Dialog
@mathiasconradt Thanks for this! I just noticed this issue too and found this thread. as a new convert to Vivaldi. Grabbed Spectacle for the workaround and it will do for now. Looking forward to this getting fixed up. PS: Love the dev engagement on this browser. I'm hooked and telling everyone about Vivalid!
@milafabio I love Vivaldi - much better than Chrome et-alia - BUT videos don't play in random fashion. Twitter; Facebook, and I have reloaded Flash twice!

@buss Vivaldi does not ship with Widevine; it downloads it after installation and it should download automatically. If it doesn't, just go to vivaldi://components and click the "Check for update" button.
I can confirm that this works with a new/fresh Vivaldi 2.0 installation.
Also, I can't stress this enough: DO NOT downgrade to older versions of Vivaldi... and definitely DO NOT install any Vivaldi 1.x releases on macOS as a workaround for ANY issue after you have installed Vivaldi 2.0. Vivaldi releases are not backwards-compatible and downgrading will likely corrupt your Vivaldi profile and cause other problems that can be difficult to recover from.
@gaelle But how about accepting that we post in apparently wrong groups, and try to read through is all carefully and consider if just posting the bug / problem he suggest that something else is wrong. That what you believe the problem to be stems from not fully understanding the problem. I have had the request moved and deleted, and bluntly, I know the problem and can fix the code - but I have to repeat the "fix" every time I receive a new version of Vivaldi. Yes - I have posted the fix. I don´t know it it fixes it all. I got my video working, but still get the "wrong codec" - and sometime I know the reason. Where to place it - how to report? Very good question. It is not really video you see.
@bluesnoop85 At this point, it might be time to give up on this feature request. The future of the touch bar seems grim, as it appears it might not even come back for the next macbooks.
@Gwen-Dragon @mk71 There's still an issue, VB-45008, where the fullscreen UI still "drops down" when it should not. As far as I know, it only affects users with multi-monitor setups running macOS Mojave. That bug is still open and has been assigned to a developer, but I haven't seen any activity on it for quite some time. I'll try to get an update on where things currently stand regarding a fix.
@luetage said in Logging in to Vivaldi forum is difficult:
There are 2 steps. First you click on login on the Vivaldi site, then a new site appears and there you input your username and password. Then you click login on this page and -- nothing happens for a while, because Vivaldi is processing this request. If you get inpatient and click login again, you will get the authentication error you mentioned. Then only going back to a normal vivaldi site, reloading, and doing the whole thing again will let you login. So again, after hitting login be patient and wait for the site to do its thing, then it should work out fine without the error.
About the pasting of passwords I can only say that i could paste fine in this field, but I actually let Vivaldi save the password for vivaldi.net, therefore the login information is already filled out in my case.
iMac El Capitan user here just experienced the same thing. Thanks for the tip. I'll git used to it.
@xyzzy said in Vivaldi won't reproduce some YouTube videos:
I'm always on the latest snapshot, and I can play the videos on the site. What doesn't work for me is Twitter and (I just discovered this) Gamespot. Youtube, Vimeo and the likes are fine.
Vivaldi on OS X MacOS uses a popular third-party software update framework called Sparkle. This framework doesn’t have a GUI to turn off automatic updates, but it does have and honor a hidden preference. It’s easy and safe to change this setting using the command line (Terminal, iTerm2), so that is how I will demonstrate, but you might be able to use a GUI tool to edit the appropriate preference file if you prefer.
The auto-update feature is controlled by a key named “SUEnableAutomaticChecks” in the Vivaldi preferences. You can check and change the value of this preference using the defaults tool. In your terminal app, type/paste everything after the dollar sign:
$ defaults read -app Vivaldi SUEnableAutomaticChecks
If the value has not been set, the tool will produce this error:
The domain/default pair of (com.vivaldi.Vivaldi, SUEnableAutomaticChecks) does not exist
(which defaults to on).
You can disable auto-update by setting the value to NO:
$ defaults write -app Vivaldi SUEnableAutomaticChecks NO
$ defaults read -app Vivaldi SUEnableAutomaticChecks
