Extension UI Issues in Private Browsing (Vivaldi 1.3 Stable)



  • Just wondering if anyone, especially extension heavy users, noticed anything problematic with particular add-on's UI or functionality in private browsing mode? I happened to find that, when I downloaded the [url=https://vivaldi.net/en-US/teamblog/141-snapshot-1-3-551-21-notes-fixes]1.3.551.21 snapshot[/url]--and then the current stable build shortly after--Privacy Badger does not function properly--as in it doesn't detect nor block any trackers on a page. I also tried UBlock Origin and AdNauseam. The former seems to work with the counter constantly increasing on a tracker heavy site such as YouTube and blocking them, but the UI upon clicking it brings up the same issue. Same with AdNauseam, but its overall functionality gets cut in private browsing by default, at least from what [url=https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adnauseam/reviews/767278/]this review[/url] mentions for the Firefox add-on. Its Chrome extension [url=https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adnauseam/hgfacieeomogkcchookiodlpppbcolha/reviews]only has two reviews[/url], as of this post, with five stars and scant details. HTTPS Everywhere functions perfectly across the board though. Should note, I did have the extensions mentioned above set to run in private windows, but not simultaneously. (Meaning that I installed and uninstalled them individually rather than just disabling the other afermentioned extensions that would conflict one another.) Update: Just realized that the Privacy Badger issue is a Chrome and Mac problem beyond private browsing according to [url=https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadgerchrome/issues/889]this Github report[/url]. 2nd Update: Found out not too long ago that Ublock Origin does keep note of how many requests it blocked since its installation, even those found in private browsing which I switch to often. Those requests do get displayed in the UI upon clicking it, shown below, while any blocked requests for the visited page only show up in the counter. Either way, it works for me right now.
