Snapshot 1.0.422.8 - Quick fixup for issues in the previous snapshot
Today's snapshot fixes the major issue reported in the last one, meaning that scrolling should be smoother and you will see less "Dead Birds". We have also done a bit more work on search suggestions, got Netflix working again and introduced a minimum size for the active tab. We also addressed the bug that a number of you raised with keyboard shortcuts not working after viewing the source of a page.
and then there was a wolf…
in your face, V-groupies
I still can't deactivate smooth scrolling. Whether the smooth scrolling box is checked or not, the smooth scrolling is activated.
https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/vivaldi-browser/7042-big-new-features-list has not been updated for a while compared to https://vivaldi.net/en-US/easysocial-dashboard/stream/item/233434 just in case one link is more powerful than two.
Indeed, it's a regression from switching to Chr49. I hope it'll get fixed soon !
Edit : Follow VB-13985 to know when it's fixed !
UPDATE still detected as a virus by BITDEFENDER.
I have already reported twice this issue in bugreport.
So I cannot install it.
Bettybop, I think you should report it to BITDEFENDER instead. It's not Vivaldi's fault if BitDefender makes a mistake…
(sorry, replied to the wrong conversation)
Which file is detected as a virus? I'm sure its a false positive from BitDefender. Try uploading it to virustotal.com and see the results.
The problem with the sidebar not staying closed when there are sites added to it is still there. It's always open when the browser is started regardless of how it was left on the last shutdown.
Small suggestion. One of the things I don't like about Vivaldi is how it opens new Windows in a new tab instead of a re sized Window.
Some Windows need to be open in the size the website sends them to the user, because it just makes sense for help things, app that references the current active window, or something else you need to have on top of the current website.
I guess this is working like this because Vivaldi does not allow to detach tabs yet, but once you do, please open new windows a user opens and clicks respecting the windows size for those windows popups.
It is a false positive. We are aware of it and have contacted various anti-virus vendors to get them to update their definitions.
that's why now I report officially features as bugs
Would it be possible to have dedicated URLs for latest builds like WordPress does? Like:
and so on…
Plus this is kind of a general annoyance. CloudFlare on Vivaldi services is making it pretty darn hard to download the latest builds on my Pi connected to the internet using PIA VPN. Apparently PIA is not doing well in CF's database
Will "turbo bookmarks" return ever?
It seems a few snapshot versions back, it become no longer possible to call up a bookmark after pressing F2 and a unique bookmark nickname WITHOUT HAVING TO PRESS ENTER afterwards. In the "good old days," as soon as a unique letter combination was entered, Vivaldi whisked me off to that bookmark. I miss that! Is there a way to re-enable that feature on my end here, possibly?
Are search suggestions supposed to work? I resetted my search engines again as directed by the previous post. I am using Google as default search. I am not getting any search suggestions after I type a keyword in the address bar.
Before the finale (important):
a) MMB in "History folder" work like LMB (VB-13148)
b) Google translate extention – "translate this site" not working (VB-14048)
Vivaldi in this snapshot works much more slowly than before.
No, it's CloudFare that isn't doing great at all…
Is Search in Settings not working as expected? For example, type "smooth" and get nothing. It seems to be very hit and miss as to which searches will work. Is only a subset of Settings indexed?
Still not fixed the GMX MailChecker extension…
No interest, no priority, no comments?
