Thanks for the tip, I know about Alt+Enter but didn't use it much in this case. Actually I still would like a new tab on startup to:
1st See the speed dial
2nd Do not load the last tab from my previous session (I use lazy load), so the browser will start faster in case my last tab was a video stream for example.
Yes, I tried sessions. My problems are:
If I open a session, and make changes (open/close tabs), I cannot update it. I have to save it, and delete the old one.
If I open a session in a new window, and close the original window, that session's modification is lost if I not save it.
Mainly if session modifications could be automatic, I would be happy with "live sessions", where I do not need to save them by hand every time.
@Alex_Sig There are several existing requests on Sessions, such as Sessions Panel.
The Open Session dialogue is limited to listing about 20 or 30 sessions. This was reported as a bug already.
I would like to see a few improvements to the Open Session dialogue too:
A scrollbar is obviously needed.
The setting to Open in the Current Window or a new window should be remembered.
A Search Bar has also been suggested.
@ksus In case you sometimes have to select a lot of tabs that all belong to one main site but are all scattered on your tabbar, there is even one further method you can use.
To see how this works just open a few tabs that contain sites from the vivaldi forum and drag them anywhere on your tabbar now Ctrl + double left click the vivaldi forum tab you have active at the moment and it will instantly select every other tab that uses forum.vivaldi.net/...
Of course this works with every other site as well.
@ROTFL Saving selected tabs as a session is a new feature.
It needs adding the Help File
Edit: I see that Help already has this section
To save only some tabs as a session:
use the Ctrl/⌘/Shift key to make a selection > right click on one of the selected tabs to open the context menu > Save # Selected Tabs as a Session
start typing “Save Selected Tabs as Session” in Quick Commands.
According to the task manager, it seems that all the tabs are closing appropriately. I shall do more investigation looking at disabling extensions to see if this solves the issue.
UPDATE: I can confirm this isn't because of any mods, and so is probably being caused by an extension. I will now need to do the whole one-by-one thing to figure out which.
UPDATE 2: I can confirm it still happens with extensions disabled as well. Perhaps it is profile related?
