Snapshot 1.0.380.2 - Bug fixes and new Settings



  • ~
    Bookmarks :
    Or add the BM Mgr (and other Bookmarks related functions) as a dedicated dropdown into the MAIN Menu - as has been the browser standard since day 1.

    That's exactly how Vivaldi works for me (and how it did since I can remember)

    Furthermore i would prefer a search panel with all searches instead of the combo box which never remember the last search url.

    Not sure what you mean here, because the search field does both things that you described. Do you by any chance have it disabled under settings?

    "Display search field in address bar"



  • Hello, Vivaldi team and thank you for your work. It is a great tool and Im looking forward to support your initiative to give creative and compact alternative for browsing.
    So, as a user I got these important issues:
    1. When I use multiple monitors, in my old browsers I use to drag only a tab from a browser window to one of my monitors. It seems that Vivaldi allows me only to arrange my tabs order, but not to split them into different monitors.
    2. When using Ad-block (witch by-the-way, wasn't so easy to install it as an addone to your browser 😛 ) it seems that not all pop-up-ads are blocked as they do in "the other" browser.
    Without all these small inconveniences, I want to congratulate you for this wonderful piece of web-tech that you made. The gestures and colored tabs, bookmarks tool and all the other settings are more than great! Again, thank you all!

    If you right-click on a tab, select "Move to -> New Window" are you able to then drag that window to your other monitor?



  • Hello, this is my first comment on the blogs of the Vivaldi, I have an active account since last year and use the browser since its first technical previews, and I have been following all the updates and improvements with the browser. The team is to be congratulated, we really have everything to be a large community of users passionate about technology and 2015 up until now, the Vivaldi has much improved in all aspects, is fluid, beautiful, full of fantastic features, some powerful features that are already deployed, and much more. I will dedicate myself more to post new comments as soon as new materials are published, thank you for the space the Vivaldi team.

      :D:D:D


  • I hope that this piece of jewelry ill see on iOS too.



  • Oh, I forgot to thank you guys for fixing the videos not playing in Facebook or Twitter.

    All seems well now on my Vista 32 machine. 🙂



  • Here at Linux Vivaldi can't import passwords from Chrome, even when you select that option.



  • Windows 8.1: I keep getting "Vivaldi has crashed" dialog boxes, although Vivaldi doesn't actually crash - it keeps running fine. Maybe one of the plugin containers is crashing? Here's the details:
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: vivaldi.exe
    Application Version: 1.0.380.2
    Application Timestamp: 56a6e70d
    Fault Module Name: StackHash_b7a6
    Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0

  • Vivaldi Close = Computer reboot

    It's happened 3 times so far with only this build. The last thing before I go to bed (ie after a hard day's work in Vivaldi <g>) and, prior to putting the computer to sleep, I've closed Vivaldi and… Black screen, BIOS v1.etc etc etc and eventually back into Windows.

    In Vivaldi, I have
    1 group tab with 2 tabs
    1 group tab with 3 tabs
    1 tab Twitter
    1 group tab with 4 tabs

    Startup: Last session
    Adblock is running,
    Tabbar is set Right.
    (o)Show Status Info Overlay
    (o) Color Active Tab
    [x]Show Panel Toggle

    Overwise, it's a standard install on Vista 32, ATI X1300PRO video card.</g>



  • Closed Vivaldi just after writing that. It just close.
    Closed it again. It crashed.

    Would that be 50% ? 🙂



  • well sorry to hear this,
    got no crashes at all with this snapshot (linux 32bit), and I use it as my main browser, sometimes it's running for hours with 20-30 tabs open.



  • Yes, right now I'm back to using Opera temporarily because Vivaldi is just super unstable for me. Some mouse clicks I did in the address bar caused the browser to close . . . there are a few things I want, like the Alt button to not trigger mouse gestures, and for the browser to actually be stable, and I would love to use it again.



  • Runs great but seems to hang for a second before opening web pages but the way the development is going, it may become my default browser.



  • Right now, the address bar is slow on it's suggestions, which wasn't much of a problem in previous snapshots. It's slow to autosuggest websites, and the autosuggest most frequently visited sites such as google.com doesn't work because as soon as you type "g" it'll type goal.com, not google.com, and I've never been to goal.com. This is even with "always prefer bookmarks" disabled. The behavior is really finicky, unlike a few snapshots ago, and RAM usage is going up, not down(I have one process that is about 750MB of RAM, and others that take up 100-200MB of RAM). I also want the the option to disable the Alt key for both menu and mouse gestures, so that the page doesn't go back when I'm pressing Alt and moving the mouse at the same time(because I have Alt set for a lot of keyboard shortcuts). New Opera doesn't do this behavior, so I'm hoping the next snapshot will fix these things.



  • one simply can't complain about using free RAM as far as the memory is free.
    The (other) problem is how Vivaldi can free the RAM it runs when other program need it and Vivaldi doesn't…

    Though, I have to admit that address bar suggestions are not optimized at all. (time to time I even have to reopen a blank tab just to get any of my history suggestions)



  • Yes, I understand what you're saying about the RAM. I just mentioned it because it looks like RAM usage is going up and up. In Windows 10, I mostly just use my web browser. I might open up other programs here and there and then close them, but my web browser is usually open all the time. So Vivaldi, being the only program open a lot of the time, looks like it's taking up more and more RAM. That 750MB process used to only be a 400-500MB process, and that used to be 200-300MB. I can also see that the process is usually Facebook taking up that much. So it could be FB, but I think Vivaldi is doing that. Remember that they also just recently upgraded the Chromium 48 a few times, and they were on 47. And that we're still in Beta, so it's not fully optimized yet. While I do have free RAM to spare, I'm sure it's still possible to optimize the RAM usage they currently have.

    And on the address bar, they seriously do need to fix that issue with the bookmarks suggestion thing and optimize the whole thing. When I use Opera or any other browser, it's instantaneous and doesn't suggest bookmarks, but my most used sites. But we're on the first version of Vivaldi, so they're still getting things right and I know they will get there.
