Help: Open URL / search term in background tab // auto-hide address bar // themes not changing

  • Hey, I just started using Vivaldi a few days ago, and overall it's serving my needs excellently! There are a few minor things, however, which I have been able to figure out how to do, if they are at all possible at the time being: When typing addresses or search terms in the address bar, I would like to be able to open them in a background tab. In Chrome, hitting cmd+enter (presumably ctrl+enter on Windows) does this, but it doesn't appear to be working in Vivaldi. Pressing alt+enter opens them in a new tab, but I would like that tab to be in the background, rather than in focus. Second, is there a way to auto-hide the address bar, so that when it's not being typed in, it disappears? Most of the time, I'm not interested in seeing the address bar, so hiding it is fine, but this doesn't let me see it and type in it with a single command. What I would like to do, is have the bar be hidden by default until activated, either by opening a new tab or by pressing cmd+L. At the moment I have to first show it, and then focus; and while it is only one more keystroke, it does make it more of a hassle. Third, in relation to scheduling themes: the themes don't seem to change in an active window, so I have to either open a new window or quit and relaunch the browser for the theme to change. (Note that in the case of opening a new window, the original window doesn't change themes.) Is there a way to make open windows change too? Apologies if these questions have already been posed elsewhere, but I have not been able to find what I am looking for.
