Feature requests for 1.9 / 1.10
Allow turning on full-screen mode as a website permission
With this feature, we would be able to blacklist/whitelist websites for turning on full-screen mode automatically (like eg. opening video in full-screen mode), just like we could do it with Notifications, Popups, Plugins, Location, Camera & other website permissions. Global setting to allow/disallow full-screen on all websites by default would be welcomed too. Some browsers - like IE for example - ask you to allow the site to run in the full-screen mode.
File-sharing like Opera Unite
Ability to drag & drop bookmarks and folders into other folders on the Speed Dial page.
More Space Above Tabs in if not Maximized
Collapse/Expand Bookmark Tree with FlipBack/FlipForward
Allow resizing Speed Dial items to fit more than 6 columns (and also more rows) of them
Ability to use the "back button" on vivaldi://startpage (after entering a folder).*
We should be able to quickly move between folders on our Speed Dial pages. Currently the only way to go to the previous folder (after entering one), is to click on a tiny button placed above the Speed Dial items. It's inconvenient.
* By the "back button" I mean the following:
- Go to previous page button
[<]on the navigation panel;
- Keyboard shortcuts (
[←]or custom ones);
- The built-in "Back" button that some mouses have;
- Mouse gesture "History back";
- Rocker gestures.
- Go to previous page button
Open Bookmarks / Notes folders with single click
That is especially needed when the "Open Bookmark Panel Items with Single Click" option in vivaldi://settings/bookmarks/ is checked. Right now the only way to open bookmarks/notes folder with a single click is to aim the small triangle-shaped "expand" icon.
Switch the cursor to
pointerwhen hovering over Bookmarks
But only when the "Open Bookmark Panel Items with Single Click" option in vivaldi://settings/bookmarks/ is checked. It'll be more intuitive...
Bookmarks / Notes Separators
Ability to separate bookmarks/notes with a single, horizontal line, just like in Opera 12.
Make the User Interface Zoom affect context menus
It would be handy for touchscreen devices. At least increase the spacing between context menu items (as an option), just like it happens with the File Explorer context menu on Windows 10, after switching to the Tablet Mode.
Make the "Close Tab" button always visible (as an option)
On a touch screen, the
:hoverevents don't work (for obvious reasons), so closing a tab using an invisible button is quite difficult sometimes...
Allow stacking pinned tabs / pin stacked tabs
Allow moving pinned tabs across the tab bar (and placing them in between other tabs)
Allow changing the order of tabs within tab stacks (with drag & drop and keyboard shortcuts)
Currently, it's possible only by removing & adding them back to the tab stacks in the desired order.
Include a reference to custom CSS/JS files
For those of us who write custom scripts & stylesheets for the browser itself, it would be handy if we could just keep those files in one place and have the browser automatically check for them upon launch, so that we wouldn't have to edit the browser's files after every update...

Image preview while hovering with some enhanced settings (e.g. preview only when a "this key" is pressed etc.)

"Create new Folder" in right "add bookmark" menu
In the bookmark icon -menu (on the right side of the address bar) there is no option to create a new bookmark folder yet.
I miss this feature, and it is quite common in other browsers.
