Copying this from another post of mine, as it seems to be confusing to some users. Here's the update process explained:
Update is downloaded automatically, but it's waiting for the user to restart the browser:
At this point the user can either click to restart the browser and install the update right away or continue working with the browser and manually close it later (restart is not forced on the user).
Similarly, when checking for updates and downloading the newest version, this dialogue is shown:
At this point the user can also dismiss the dialogue and close the browser without clicking on the "install" button (again, restart is not forced on the user).
@Pesala said in Not disable but remove mail calendar etc.:
@1Al Detest is too strong a word to use, but I see no purpose in requesting things that will not make the slightest difference to Vivaldi. As Ayespy explained before for your information, when disabled these features use no resources.
I wrote I'm not interested in disabling it, but I want to get rid of it completely.
@danielp What would be the point of converting WebP to PNG? In PNG format the images would be much bigger (6 Mbytes instead of 410 Kbytes in my quick test), without any improvement in image quality.
The request should be to save images as PNG if a copy exists on the server.
See this earlier topic among others.
@pesala said in Remove the Close Panel Button:
New users will not know how to hide the button
The confusion of new users who didn't know how to close opened panels was the main reason for introducing the button in the first place. More advanced users can easily hide it with CSS, therefore removing the close button by default is a no-go, I'm afraid. 🤷♂
@moosmas The "Cookie Crumbler" is part of the Ad Blocking sources, as explained in the article, and therefore the suppressed cookie warnings are counted as blocked ads. For now, we're not planning to make the statistics count blocked ads and trackers from each list separately.
Thank you for the suggestions. Before making a request, please take note of the Feature Request forum category rules:
Search to make sure the feature you have in mind hasn’t been requested already.
Upvote features you like.
If a feature hasn’t been requested, start a new topic. Post only one feature request per topic.
Choose a clear and concise title for the topic and describe the feature in more detail in the body of the post.
This is not a valid feature request. Read more on how to request a new feature.
Hello, @ktaym, and welcome to our community!
I'm afraid your request is impossible to fulfil with the current state of things. Sync is used inside profiles - which means that we cannot sync multiple profiles using one Sync account. It's as if you asked one driver to drive two (or more) cars at the same time (so to speak). And as already mentioned by Obiwan2208, the Android browser doesn't support profiles. I guess you'd have to stick with using multiple browsers for now... 🤷♂
@fishoutoffire Thank you for the suggestion. For now, we don't have plans on implementing anything like that. We're focusing on building better browser and browser-related services. Such specific tasks (as converting images) can be achieved through other means (dedicated software & other tools). 🙂
Hello, @danielmgm, and welcome to our community!
Unfortunately, such a feature would have to be provided by YouTube itself, not the browser, as the current behaviour seems to be consistent across other browsers.
I think chances for implementing something like this are pretty low for a few reasons:
Different search engines use different methods of excluding domains
Some search engines do not support it at all
It would have to be regularly maintained (to follow all relevant changes made by the search engines providers)
It's already possible by using custom Search Engines (and other means)
As for "maintaining it between installs" AKA syncing search engines, it's being worked on.
@ibay770 This is something we're likely not going to do, however, we'd like to know what's your motivation behind this request? Is something not working as it should when Vivaldi is set as the default browser? Could you please elaborate on that?
@aurodeus Vivaldi uses Googles Safebrowsing blocklist which will reject such sites.
You can report there:
The Vivaldi dev and community team has no enough ressources to check this.
Hello, @gassanhirra, and welcome to our forums!
The Picture-in-Picture feature works with media detected on the page. For now, YouTube does not offer any playable media when viewing thumbnails, therefore it's not possible to spawn the PiP window on such pages (as there are no media to play). It would require a workaround made specifically for this website, which is what browser extensions are for.
All the background images that were previously available in Vivaldi can be downloaded from here: https://themes.vivaldi.net/categories/vivaldi-official
Adding too many backgrounds for every user - whether they want them or not - would be superfluous if they can easily download what they like from the gallery. 🙂
I don't think we're ever going to do anything like that. Our developers would have to keep up with the changes being made on YouTube, not to mention, that it's a matter of personal preferences, and there would probably be many users who wouldn't appreciate it anyway.
It's something that can already be achieved by using an extension, and that should be sufficient for those who'd like to modify web pages in such a way.
Vivaldi is built as a feature-rich browser, and we're striving to make it even better. Developing and maintaining separate apps sounds like the opposite of what we're aiming at, so I'm afraid this request is a no-go. However, we would like to improve the bookmarking feature, so if you have any ideas on that, feel free to share them. Just make sure they weren't posted already. 😅
For example, the request for tagging bookmarks has already been made here - you can show your support by voting for it.
