URL protocol is not copied if location bar gets typed into
Vivaldi 1.6.689.40 + Mac 10.12.3, but I don't see why this would be limited to Mac.
- Open a page
- Go to URL bar (I use shortcut key)
- Go to end of URL. Type something. Remove it. You should still have the original URL
- Press select all shortcut and copy the URL
- Paste the URL somewhere else, like a text editor or terminal
Expect: Since I pressed the select all shortcut, the pasted text should include the URL's protocol.
Actual: It doesn't
I believe this user's issue is the same thing, but it was filed in 2015 and has not gotten any updates since.
The issue occurs only when the "Show Full Address" option under "Address Bar Options" in Address Bar Settings (vivaldi://settings/addressbar/) is unchecked. Otherwise it works as expected.
I'm not sure, though, whether it is actually a bug or whether it's like that by design. You can report this to the Vivaldi Team if you feel that it should be fixed. Here's a copypasta (stolen from @Gwen-Dragon 😁) on how to report a bug:
