Search default changes to Yahoo! after update to Vivaldi 1.9

  • Is this a bug within the Vivaldi source that the default changes from 1.8 to 1.9, but not from 1.7 to 1.8.

    I use Bing as my default search engine (I know, sue me) and didn't welcome the change to Yahoo.

    Please fix this, and set Vivaldi to respect settings between updates

  • It won't happen again for sure in next updates, it was probably a 1 time change if you had the previous default (bing). I for example had Google and it didn't change.

    @SPARKESFRANKIE66: Vivaldi intentionally changed their own default setting for several (not all) countries to yahoo. This should not change the setting for anyone not using the Vivaldi default setting. If you don't want the new Vivald default, then simply change it to the one you do like, in your menu/search settings.
