Everything got bigger after the update to 1.5



  • I have updated to 1.5 today and suddenly everything is displayed much larger. I am on zoom 100%, also on the Appearance settings. Because of this bahaviour, some pages do not fit into the screen, especially when the sidebar is open.

    Does anyone know why this happened, and more importantly – how to fix this?

    Thank you!



  • Have tried to use the 'Reset!' Just click it. The slider will not rest to far right, but closer to the left.



  • @RRR13
    I believe so, I downloaded directly via Help->Check for updates.



  • @diahron
    Tried it, didn't help :(



  • This "bug" was introduced several snapshots ago. The question is will it be fixed...



  • Problems related to size (DPI settings) and blurred fonts - several "workarounds" were found depending on system specifics.

    Have a read through https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/11603/blurry-ui-fonts-after-reboot



  • I had the same problem, everything got bigger after the update and I can't seem to get it to stay at 100%, every web site goes to 115%. I tried "reset" but it does nothing. I downloaded the update from Vivaldi.
    How to fix this?



  • It is not a permanent fix, but it seems that 80% of zoom is the equivalent of 100% before the update. Until it is fixed, you might want to go to settings and change it. Go to Webpages settings, and change default zoom from 100% to 80%. You can also do this for the interface in appearance settings, changing the user interface zoom from 100% to 80%. The only problem is that it seems these settings don't affect web panels, but for everything else this should work.

    Regarding the reason, it probably is a problem with Chromium, as I noticed the same problem with Google Chrome about a month ago (but don't trust me completely on this, as I'm no expert).

    I second this method. Did it immediately after the 1.5 update and it's been holding.



  • Hello, since the last update I spent the same thing that describes this post, looking for this solution and it works for me, it's in Chrome but follow the same steps taken to Vivaldi and now.

    Translated into google translator, I hope greetings work for you.



  • @bong same problem here. at first I thought they made some adjustments for tablet use. and I have to admit that after several hours I kinda like the bigger fonts. The worst for me is size change of the hole speed dial page. its very unhandy now with this big icons. only 3 icons in 1 row now.
    after the update all my saved passwords are deleted, too. so far the update to 1.5 is a big disapointment to me after the great 1.4 version.



  • @RRR13 its still 6. which is the same like before the update

    this is how it looks now:

    YES. thats it. just change the windows DPI settinngs from 125% to 100% and everything will be fine.

    Thanx @TbGbe



  • @Agco ... Wait a minute. Unless I'm missing something, changing the system-wide DPI setting impacts everything.

    That is NOT a fix.

    You don't have to struggle anymore waiting for it to be implemented natively, which will come later for sure.

    @HarryH No the point was that it was broken before, we did not respect the system-wide DPI settings in all cases and you got used to Vivaldi looking too small. Now we do respect the settings and you are seeing it as it is supposed to be.

    However, if you want Vivaldi smaller again (while all other applications that respect system wide DPI are bigger) you could use our UI scaling to make Vivaldi smaller again.

    Alternatively if you want we could add a setting that ignores system wide UI scaling. It will obviously be off by default as most people want and expect their applications to scale with the OS but we could add it for those of you who want something different.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Yes! Please add this setting! Firefox has this in about:config.

    I'm also experiencing some weird scaling in 1.5.658.44 on Windows 10 Pro:

    I have two monitors as an extended display, one at 3840x2160, the other 1920x1200, with Vivaldi sitting on the latter. The 4K monitor is scaled to 200%, while the one with Vivaldi is 100%. Tooltips & menus are all rendered in the 200% scaling, despite being on the monitor with default scaling.

    When maximized, the browser windows overlaps into the other monitor by 1 pixel. I'm wondering if this is enough for it to register as being on the 4K screen for (some?) UI elements but not everything.

    @alexdante - Overlap bug a known issue, and is fixed in the latest snapshot.



  • @Ayespy Cheers, I'll grab it tonight and check if it resolved this issue too.
