Snapshot - Fixes to typed history, keyboard shortcuts for web panels and visual polishing

  • Panel toggle doesn't seem to be working… whenever I click it when hidden it doesn't open the side panel, it works if the panel is already visible though.

    Also, any plans to allow us to hide enabled extension icons from the address bar?

    A long time still. We are not even to Beta. We still don't have email. If I said a final version was only six months out I would still probably fall short.

    First problem is well known and widely discussed. It will be fixed soon.

    Second issue has been asked for numerous times with no response from the developers, which tells me it is likely a low priority. But since their goal is the most customizable browser around, I would expect to see it some day.

    I am pleased to see the "search in page" bar persistent through pages and reloads. This was one of the great things about O12 - the ability to quickly search for the same term in successive pages.

  • Regression for win64bit: unable to play sound samples on amzon. downgraded again to Vivaldi. which plays the samples alright.

  • The video lectures on do not play anymore after updating to vivaldi (Gentoo 64bit). It played fine in previous versions.

    Their video player displays this message: "The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported". The videos work fine in Firefox.

    Edit: example link:

  • web panels can now be assigned individual shortcuts

    Can we see the same for speed dials?

    VB-9462 Mouse Zoom Broken in About Page

    Ctrl + Shift + Mousewheel works in other pages, but not in About Page

    Numpad Plus/Minus works just fine.

  • Only thing i need before switching to this browser is Synchronization. (bookmarks + passwords etc).

    Any idea on its progress?

    They say they are working on it, but as it also means buying and setting up a server farm plus writing their own particular protocols for first, sync of bookmarks and second, sync of passwords, I would not hold my breath waiting for it. In NeuOpera, for instance (and Opera has millions of dollars to buy or convert a server farm any time they want), it took over two years for implementation, and Vivaldi is less than ten months old.

  • I don't know, but I understand there are surely a lot of details to sort out, design and implement - not only a lot of things in the interface, but a back-end needs to be robust and reliable. Basically you can probably imagine how development is - many things go smoother, some a bit less, there is a progress, just all requires time. I understand the curiosity but can't really tell more. Just let's get a little more patience to wait till it comes. WIR. 🙂

  • There is no public access to whole bugtracker, but when you submit a bug, you get its reference number.

  • What colour actually do you refer to? I have not understood it in your previous post too. I have black text on white background in context menus.
    And why do you consider context menu background colour as something so critical? Why it has to be actually forced to be different than in Chrome if it works and does not disturb to work with a functionality. Especially considering that it is only a pre-beta/pre-final product with a lot of important things left to spend time on. So I fully understand this is your pet bug, I have my own pet bugs too, but for the best of all of us, I would opt for the most effective approach - doing it all at once, when appropriate time comes, not get distracted on quite obviously low priority things.

  • Can you add an option so we can search with bing?

  • I'm using a bookmarklet for literature research, to get access to scientific journals requiring subscription. It reloads the current website by redirecting it via the university proxy.
    This seems to be quite a standard bookmarklet implementation, since it works with all browsers I tested so far (Opera, Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari) and it is also used by other universities.

    Unfortunately Vivaldi always redirects me to about:blank.

    Is this a known issue?

    (occurs on Windows 10 x64, Vivaldi 32bit build)

  • Is it a good idea to use this deb file (which is made for Ubuntu 14.04) in an 12.04 installation? Actually I tried to use the way which ruario showed in the notes, which meant that i had to install chromium for 12.04 (which I hadn't before). After copying that file Vivaldi didn't start anymore. I uninstalled and installed it again, so it's running again, but still some videos / audios aren't playing.
    I'm still using Xubuntu 12.04 lts. There are different reasons. No 1 is the fact, that I'm using an old machine and I think it'll cost a lot of time for me to upgrade and my machine won't work well after that. No 2 is the fact, that I'm still using the old Opera for EMail, which is not available for 14.04 as far as I'm aware.

  • @wojcieche:

    What colour actually do you refer to? I have not understood it in your previous post too. I have black text on white background in context menus.

    sigh… I've posted a link in my previous post didn't you see that? I'm copy-pasting it again. I'm talking about the stripe. White background, black text, NOT BLUE stripe. (Blue= Chrome). In my example it is grey-blue.That simple. Also I 've just pointed it out, I'm not impatient. Using Vivaldi 64-bit.

  • @Olli, I see some misconceptions here, so I'll post it again, I'm only talking about the blue stripe of the context menu (select), just the color of it. Not about redesigning the whole content menu. Here is an example done in 10 seconds with a different milder color of the stripe (white background, black text remain as they are: Also just pointing out that with such a small thing you differentiate yourself noticeably from Chrome, which is desirable I guess?, not being impatient or demanding at all. Cheers.

  • Yes, I have seen the screenshot but it does not point which element do you mean. So I guess that by "stripe" you mean selection highlight colour, correct? I think you made the point, it was noted and will be handled appropriately. It is not up to me anyway to decide on the priorities. I only shared my personal perspective on this request. Cheers.

  • Distinguish noticeably from Chrome? It does not look like already and nobody will confuse it only because context menu highlight colours… I would not be also so sure that changing this colour in Chrome components is a quick fix - still would need to be multiplied by number of menus, remember.
    Anyway, I can only encourage that you reconsider if your pet bug needs so much attention or we can just wait patiently when a full proper rework comes. You can be sure it will not be missed and I think this is the most important and valueable part of the feedback you have received already. Cheers!
