Configure mouse buttons?



  • I've just migrated to Vivaldi from Firefox (they broke sound output in Linux) and one thing I've used a lot on Firefox is middle-click to open a link in a new tab. In Firefox, there's an option to raise new tabs to foreground automatically.

    In Vivaldi, middle-click does open the link in a new tab, but leaves it unselected, requiring a second click to raise it (and a sweep of the pointer to the top of the screen). I know I can right-click and select "Open in new tab", but that's a two-click solution too.

    There doesn't seem to be any configuration options for the actions attached to mouse clicks. Or am I just being stupid and haven't seen it?



  • As workaround you could use the combination "Shift + MiddleMouseButton"
    or "Shift + LeftMouseButton"

    He he... That PulseAudio?
    I actually need 1+ minute to really understand that Firefox popup mean. Staring blankly.

    O well, at least I really don't have problem with PulseAudio since beginning. I just saw it I don't need it back then.

    Hmm, seems like a strange oversight. One would assume that that was a basic feature. Anyway, I combed through the settings in Vivaldi 1.7 and by default there's a mouse gesture to open a link in a new tab (instead of a "background tab"). Place the mouse cursor over the link, press the "right mouse button" and hold it while moving the mouse down, then release. Mouse gestures have to be enabled, of course.
