    @sahands - Can't reproduce. Do you use any extensions?

    Having the same problem: While click-dragging, if I happen to pause for less than a second, cursor disappears. Unable to continue click-dragging from there. Cursor won't return until I release mouse button. This happens even when highlighting in the address bar. On this same laptop, I got Chrome, Chromium and Firefox - No issues like this.

    • no extensions installed
    • Vivaldi 1.9.818.50 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
    • Linux Mint 18.1 Serena Cinnamon 64-bit

    @jdreco You posted this under Vivaldi Browser for Windows. Let me test on my 64-bit Mint Serena/Cinnamon and see if I can reproduce. I have moved the topic to Linux.

    @jdreco: I can't reproduce it. Is this happening in text boxes or something?



  • @Ayespy It happens when highlighting any text on webpages (ex. in a wikipedia article) and in the address bar.

    It was very reproducible yesterday. But after rebooting my laptop today, I can't reproduce it now. I'll test for the rest of the day and revert here.

    I should add, I disabled hardware acceleration because of screen flicker when playing videos.
