V1.5.604.4 argument passing partly fails

  • If I click a weblink in an e-mail message in outlook.com (web interface), then a new tab is opened without any content. Since the URL bar remains empty, my guess would be that the url is not properly passed as an argument. If I click the same weblink in the same e-mail message in Outlook 2013, then a new tab is opened in Vivaldi (default browser here) with its content. This time the URL bar is indeed properly filled.

    Seems Outlook.com and Oultlook 365 2016 pass a different argument to the browser than does Outlook 2013. In the latter, Vivaldi receives a URL. In the others, Vivaldi appears to receive a js script that is interpreted as about:blank or similar. Other users have also complained that after installing Outlook 2016 on their Win10 computers, it's impossible to open ANYTHING other than Edge from a link in Outlook email.

  • Thank you AyeSpy,
    My first reaction was "should I now report this to Microsoft?"
    But then I decided to check it out with our nearest relative Google Chrome.
    Google Chrome handles these arguments very well: a new tab is opened with its contents.
    Does this make it an issue to be picked up by the Vivaldi team?

    Certainly, if they can get it to work, they would want to.

  • Working in an Office 365 school environment, this little problem is pretty annoying, so I'm hoping it'll be resolved sooner rather than later.
    Cheers, Stephan

    Works in in internal Vivaldi tester version on Outlook.com.

    That means: Wait for next Snapshot to get this fixed version. :)

  • Checked.
    Excited: It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!
