Menu stays highlighted



  • Win7 X64, Vivaldi 1.6.689.40

    Very often (after some time spent browsing) top Vivaldi menu stays highlighted for a long time. I mean that some menu entry stays highlighted even if I click in some area in website (and don't use that menu). If I move mouse cursor over another menu item, the old one isn't highlighted anymore, but the new one becomes highlighted again.

    Sometimes the issue goes away after X minutes (don't know what triggers it), sometimes the only way to "fix" it is to restart browser. I don't know what triggers this bug because usually it occurs only after some time, and I can't tell exactly when it happens.

    @toxpal: Do you use any extensions?



  • HTTPS Everywhere and Disconnect



  • After reading this thread, I discovered this has also been happening on my stable 1.6-32bit version - I'd just never really paid attention to it. The extensions used are Ghostery and Click&Clean. In any case, I've updated to the stable 1.7 version (plus the two extensions) and the sticky-highlighting phenomenon is gone, whatever it was.



  • When did you update? Maybe the bug is still there, and there wasn't enough time for it to occur.



  • @toxpal I updated a couple of hours after this morning's v1.7 release (8 Feb), so that's been several hours ago now. It's possible it simply hasn't had time to appear yet in the 1.7 install, but when I noticed that I was experiencing it on 1.6, it was virtually continual and survived multiple browser restarts, apparently differing in that regard from your experience.

    Because it's such a minor visual issue in how I browse, I have no idea how long it had been occurring in 1.6 or just what details of coming/going might have been occurring there, prior to seeing your thread. I do know that, for unrelated reasons, I performed multiple 1.6 restarts on this system after I became aware of the issue, and it was surviving all of that. With the 1.7 update, now it seems to be gone. I guess time will tell...



  • As I'm running 1.6 yet, this time bug occurred right after starting browser. I opened Vivaldi, and started typing address into address bar. At the same time other application was launched (so other application became "focused"). Once I clicked Vivaldi window, menu became highlighted.

    @Ayespy This is easily reproducible in both the Stable (1.7.735.46) and Snapshot (1.7.735.39) versions with no installed extensions:

    1. Menu > View > Horizontal Main Menu ([CTRL]+[M]) - turn it off and on again if it was already turned on.
    2. Hover over any of the horizontal menu items. It stays highlighted after moving the cursor away.

    However, it's easy to fix (temporarily), so this will do as a workaround:

    1. Click any of the menu items.
    2. Close it by clicking away.

    The issue will reappear in each new window and after restarting the browser (also after switching the menu off & on again). The workaround with clicking solves it only for one window per session.

    That is a minor issue, probably one of the least important, but it is a bug.

    Interesting. I did exactly what you listed in steps 1 and 2 and the problem did not occur on this system (Win7-64 pro), and thus far today hasn't reappeared at all since the 1.7 update.

    @Blackbird Oh, sorry about that - I forgot to mention that like @Ayespy and unlike you & the OP I'm using Windows 10 x64. Anyway, the bottom line here is that there is a bug, but perhaps it varies on the OS.

    Just did that on Win7 x64 - yes, menu stays highlighted.



  • Happens here. W10 64bit, V 32bit.



  • Just as an update, I'm now 3 days into a single continual browser session under Vivaldi 1.7 with hundreds of pages viewed, and still no menu sticky-highlighting has occurred, even after several times repeating @pafflick's method of getting the problem to appear on his system. Really strange... some have the problem, some don't, and some who once had it no longer do. ???
