Snapshot 1.0.283.8 - Fixes to typed history, keyboard shortcuts for web panels and visual polishing




  • Vivaldi Team

    Do you have a list of urls where you have a problem getting a favicon? m.facebook.com works fine here. Perhaps because the icon has been cached earlier on my machine and installs immediately when the panel is set up (otherwise we wait until the panel content has been loaded so the icon can be fetched via the page itself).



  • @3630:

    Nope, doesn't work. 'all users' is greyed out. When I change the folder to, for example 'desktop' then Vivaldi changes it to 'program files/vivaldi'. After that I can change to all users, but the problem persists. Should have something to do with permissions in windows 10, but can't find out what.

    Run the installer as administrator and pray that the greyed out option can be selected.



  • When will the final version of Vivaldi



  • When you delete a bookmark from the express panel browser should ask for confirmation.To avoid wrong actions. Or even remove the delete button and remove the possibility to make a correction mode only



  • I don't know if it's the best place to post this, but… How about adding the release date next to the build number on "About" page? It's hard to keep up with the frequent updates on Linux without automatic update...

    Thank you so much, you guys ROCK!



  • Well, it just does not work at all and it seems to be a known issue. Should we still report it? Does anybody know the bug number?



  • The order is correct on the View menu.



  • I had problems with inoreader and instagram for a while. Seems to work now. But m.facebook.com and translate.google.com/m still doesn't load their favicons for some reason. Haven't tried a clean install. Got many things set up so I can't really do one though. They won't even load on my Windows machine. I'll try to keep adding other URLs to test



  • 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.1.0.279.3.x64 which plays the samples alright.



  • The video lectures on Coursera.org do not play anymore after updating to vivaldi 1.0.283.8 (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: https://class.coursera.org/crypto-preview/lecture/1



  • 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. 🙂
