Vivaldi Window Activation (bring-to-front) Broken w/Multiple Desktops

  • I'm using Windows 10 with 3 virtual desktops. The virtual desktop functionality is provided natively in Windows 10 (I'm not using a 3rd party solution). I have Vivaldi configured as my default browser. When I click on a hyperlink in a desktop application (e.g. OneNote, Sublime Text, Visual Studio), the Vivaldi instance that's activated is almost always the "wrong" one. For example, let's say that I'm working in desktop 1, where I have Sublime Text and Vivaldi open. I also have Vivaldi open in desktop 3. If I click a hyperlink in Sublime Text on desktop 1, the Vivaldi instance that's activated will be on desktop 3, though desktop 1 remains visible. Using the same example, if I were to have multiple Vivaldi instances on desktop 3, the instance in which the hyperlink is opened sometimes isn't activated and instead remains in the background.

    Again using the same example, the instance of Vivaldi on desktop 1 should've been activated. This is how the 'big three' browsers behave, so I know it's possible.
