Feature requests for 1.6



  • I cant understand what is so hard to add an option to open a new tab when using the search.
    Please add this option soon

    Context-Sensitive Mouse Gestures

    In Opera 12.17, I use GestureDown to Lock/Unlock tabs (Pin/Unpin) in the Button Widget context, i.e. when executed over a tab.

    In the web page it will do other actions depending on the context:

    Open link in background page | Go to end | New page

    • Over a link, it opens it in a background tab
    • Not over a link, it goes to the bottom of the page
    • At the bottom of the page, it opens a new Tab.


  • advanced settings a la about:config in Firefox

    The "equivalent" for about:config in Vivaldi/Chromium is:
    vivaldi://flags/

    @Pesala It should be reported as a bug rather than a suggestion. But before you head over to that bug report page, keep in mind that the faulty font rendering on the website you showed, is due to the font family itself, which does not contain characters for polish letters with diacritical marks. It's the webdesigner's fault then (poor choice of Word Press theme for their website)...

    Unless you meant something else, and I didn't see it? 🤔

    @pafflick The issue was previously reported already as

    (VB-22048) Faulty Rendering of Polish

    Since Opera 41 and Firefox 50 render it correctly I guessed that it's a missing feature, like lack of support for fall-back glyphs, rather than an actual bug.

    Please enable “double” and ‘single’ smart quotes in text fields, and for apostrophes.

    It depends on the fonts used on a website, and has nothing to do with the browser itself. That's a request you should make to the website's owner / webmaster / webdesigner...



  • I'd like to have a History panel and History page.



  • Vertical list tab stacking that Opera 12 had, with ability to set own keyboard shortcuts that activate it(not just ctrl + tab, but anything I set), with tab previews beside it, would really help complete the tab navigation control.

    You don't understand. I am talking about typing in text fields, like this forum post, or when creating a new blog post. I can type any text I want that's on my keyboard, and others with Alt + 0147 and Alt + 148 if not for the Numpad bug that interprets the 4 as Left or Back, and the 7 as Home, which replaces the current page!

    All forums that I know of can manage to display curly quotes. Typing them is the problem.

    In Opera I use shortcuts to type them, e.g. Ctrl W adds smart quotes to the selected text with cut and paste:

    cut & Insert, "“" & Paste & Insert, "”"

    @Pesala It's broken in Opera too, since I checked it in Opera and on the Google Fonts page to find out that those missing characters were not there.
    IMO it should be considered as a bug. Though I haven't come across this issue till now, it's a quite rare occurrence (due to poor webdesign mostly, since every good webdesigner makes sure that their website is displayed correctly in every browser and a better webdesigner would never choose such fonts)... 😜



  • @pafflick Yeh. Thanks, but I know about this functionality. What about I talk, its permanent NOTcrypted DB or txt file in which Vivaldi will store passwords (instead cripted Login Data file, what anyway very easy may be encrypted). With such a file, I could customize synchronization of all need data...

    @pafflick It renders correctly in Opera as my screen shot shows (and in Firefox). They both use an appropriate fall-back glyph for the l slash, while Vivaldi does not.

    @Stardust and to see bookmarsk just use a panel

    No, I prefer dropdown bookmark menu since classic opera.

    alt text



  • Why do people NOT quote the post they are replying to? Why are we having 'private' conversations no one else may follow, unless we track back the posts? Is that a new trend in forums that I am not aware of? Or am I missing something...?



  • Scrolling Speed settings
    (Firefox has mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount in about:config)

    You said nothing about typing smart quotes in your post - you asked for enabling them, here is the full quote:

    Smart Quotes in Text Fields

    It may not matter much for forum posts, but in blog posts, etc., it’s good to use correct typography. Please enable “double” and ‘single’ smart quotes in text fields, and for apostrophes.

    What do you mean by "enabling"? The're not disabled. If you're asking for the ability to type them using the NumPad shortcuts, then how is this different from your previous post on that matter?

    Anyway. I can type [Alt] + 0147 in a textfield without any problems. It's just that I have the [NumLock] always on, the issue happens only when the [NumLock] is off. But - from what I've just learned on the Internet - you're not supposed to use the codes with the [NumLock] off.

    That's why you're getting this issue. Same thing (with [Alt]+[4] for example) happens in Opera 12 too (I forgot to mention that I use Opera 12, not the buggy Chromium based Opera 150 or whatever it's version number was). So it's not a lack of feature, nor even a bug. It's rather the OS feature misuse (it partially works, but gives unexpected results in certain cases).



  • When you add any site as web panel to sidebar, it uses site favicon. It doesn't fit into Vivaldi style what I really like. Is it possible to make this icon changeable or even add pre-made Vivaldi style icons for most popular sites like m.facebook.com? I think it should look like one of this:
    Vivaldi is love, Vivaldi is life
    Does it look better? In my opinion - yes.
    This picture is based on old version of Vivaldi browser, sorry for that.
