@stilgarwolf said in Typing too fast before e.g. the vivaldi://private-intro/ appears can discard everything you may have already typed:
It seems that input cache buffer is cleared before any tab content is displayed, so all characters you previously typed are lost.
To verify just open any search engine in a new tab and type something: all characters you typed before search field became visible are lost.
I cannot execute this in the time available - I prefer my example with the incognito window.
By all means if you make it in time, could be the same issue
While it is still not implemented to have different icons per profile, could you pls upvote https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/42397/profile-icons-on-taskbar/7?_=1600855390938
,so it gets upvotes for suggested Feature Requests. 🙂 Thank you
@CFP I think it's not a bug, or if it is, it has already been reported.
The checkbox route is effective for the current session only.
To change it permanently, go to Settings, General, and disable Close Window confirmation there.
BTW: I changed your code tags to a quote tag to improve the legibility of your post.
Edit: See this earlier thread
@Pesala Oh, I searched for panels + private, so I missed that thread. Thanks for the heads up!
Yeah, I can only imagine the complexity. It's nice to know it has been considered, hopefully the work being currently done in Vivaldi already takes a future implementation of it into consideration, decreasing the number of rewrites needed to someday make it real.
Since it is possible to hide most UI elements in a Private Window, (e.g. in Chromeless Mode), the menu button could be changed to show the key icon rather than using two icons.
Some users may even browse in Fullscreen mode by using the Quick Commands dialogue or enabling the Bookmarks Bar. I don't know how one could cater for them.
Since 2.2 there is a workaround to clone a tab with all of it history in opposite way (Private => Normal) 😛
select tab you want to clone holding Ctrl
right click and select "save as session" from popup menu
load this session in normal window
I found a bug there (tabs are loaded as pinned / reported as VB-47199) but generally it works 😛
It does not work in direction that You wanted because of another bug ("Open session in new window" checkbox is not respected in private windows / reported as VB-47198).
Anyway nobody (on this forum) could tell me if saving sessions in private windows is bug or feature despite I asked.
I am getting this same problem (black screen that seems to be running but nothing except a black screen is displayed....which occasionally ends up causing the tab to crash...or even Vivaldi in whole). In case it helps, here is an URL that repeatedly causes the black screen and crash:

I ran into the same problem.
I added Bitwarden (password manager like lastpass) to web panel and it looks perfect there. Much more useful than before. I checked "Allow in incognito" in extension settings.
But in private mode this web panel does not work.
In the header i see "Aborted".
Developer console shows (blocked:other) status.
Please fix this or add an option to enable this.
Maybe you can allow to share a context for extensions with checked "Allow in incognito".
I agree with @jumpsq here. Profiles are clumsy to use for something like this, and even more so if you have the profile button hidden (like I have).
When I use private windows I typically want to still have access to all my bookmarks, history, etc. And I want my settings to be stay the same, not reset to default (which I think guest profiles do?).
@pafflick The possibility to easily create a new session with no shared cookie with any other would be definately great! It was the only nice feature of Internet Explorer and really handy both as a developer and power user.
