Mouse gesture for opening a new tab doesn't work all the time



  • Hi all,

    I finally switched from Opera to Vivaldi. After 15+ years of using Opera, I find Vivaldi to be a browser with great potential, but still requires some fine tuning.

    One of the first bugs I've seen is related to mouse gesture (right click + down) which should open a new tab. It works, but is buggy. Sometimes, when I try to open new tab with mouse gesture, it opens last closed tab or a blank screen. Ctrl-T solves the problem, but I'm very used to mouse gestures (been using them since they first came with Opera) so Ctrl-T doesn't work for me.

    Regards,
    Damir

    That's strange, I use this mouse gesture all the time and have never seen this problem.

    Try this

  • @calypso This is a known bug that is triggered when you perform the mouse gesture on a spot where in the recently closed page an url was placed ( I know this sounds stupid but it is indeed reproducible)

    For example it was already discussed here and here

    Not sure it is the same, as that "bug" is opening a link from the old tab - so opening to an unwanted/incorrect tab; not as

    it opens last closed tab or a blank screen.

    The "[...] it opens last closed tab [...]" thing is the same but I've to admit that I skipped reading the "[...]or blank screen[...]" part. This indeed might not belong together or it could be a combination from old tab is reopened bug and the blank screen bug - but I am not sure.



  • Yes, the same problem here.

    Too often the right mouse button + swipe down (even when performed over a blank area of a page) open some other URL "out of nowhere" instead of giving me the new tab.

    Another gestere that is missing is "clone tab" as in right mouse button + swipe down and up that used to work in Opera < v12.18 unless you performed it starting over alink.

    "Clone Tab" can be added as a new mouse gesture (Settings/Mouse - press the plus under the list of gestures).



  • @TbGbe Nice. Thank you very much for the hint that I definitely will give a look.
