New tab occasionally doesn't have focus in address bar with Momentum

  • After upgrade to latest version, sometimes when I open new tab, the focus is not in address bar.

    I am using momentum extension (, so it might be related but before upgrade it was OK, it was always focused.

    I press CTRL+T new tab opens with "vivaldi://newtab" in address bar (it is set this way because I want to see the momentum content when opening new tab) and I see momentum content in the new empty tab and address bar is focused and the text is selected so I can just start typing address or search... everything OK.

    Except that sometimes with exactly the same steps the focus is lost and I have to click to address bar and select the text... It is slightly annoying.

    Here is my vivaldi version info:
