Extension Icons Sometimes Change Position.



  • Naturally my initial, & logical, hypothesis was that i have a domestic IT poltergeist. Alternatively albeit far less exciting, maybe there's a minor bug?

    Three times now i have noticed some of my extension icons are in a different position to where i'd previously dragged them. Twice this was in the current SS, 1.10.829.3, & the other [first] time might also have been in this SS, or it might have been one or so SS's ago [can't recall].

    I don't think i can provide any technically useful info to assist troubleshooting, as it's not something i watch closely [though i shall try to be more observant from now on].

    I have no evidence at all for this, but i wonder if the icons that moved each time, had their extensions recently auto-updated -- could that then cause V to allow them to move to the far RHS position [that's always where the changes occur]?

  • @Steffie Interesting... is nobody else having this issue? It just keeps happening to my SS, & is spanning updates.

    Check if you have disabled animation (Tools/Settings/Appearance).

    @Steffie Not something I would have noticed (I only have 5 and usually have icons turned off). Are they "moving" after Vivaldi close/restart or is it after computer shutdown/restart?

    Yes! It was that the cause. Thank you mate :+1:

    Hiya, ta. Well this of course is an excellent question, which unfortunately i can't yet confidently answer. Partial info so far: at night i exceedingly rarely shutdown my pc, but instead Suspend it, then Resume it the next morning for another day of fun-filled frivolity & farcical fascinations. However when i do my weekly backups of course i close V, & that will happen again a bit later today, so i shall keenly await sighting the icons once V is up & running again.

    I'm going to specifically track it from now on. Here is the current disposition [has not changed since my last whinge, although i did just discover that uBlock Origin had turned itself off & had to be reloaded; damn poltergeist again]:

  • @Steffie ...and now, after post-backup V relaunch:

  • @Steffie Another couple of V-SS restarts, & a pc restart** too -- so far all the extensions' icons have still stayed put. Yet, per my earlier whinges, the icons have not stayed still over a longer time-frame. If the moves are following a pattern rather than just being random, i can't yet deduce it.

    ** Another crash, damnit; i have no understanding of root cause, but a pretty consistent track record seems to have emerged over several months that when doing heavy I/O to one specific USB stick of mine [SanDisk Extreme Pro (ha!) 128GB USB3], 4-6 of cpu's 8-cores max-out at 100%, & frequently eventually freeze the pc... cf for same operations to my Verbatim 128GB USB3 stick, this does not occur. Is this weird? Can a cpu & specific stick truly hate each other so badly? Actually, now that i recall, they really do hate each other - ages ago i learned to my displeasure after buying the stick that i can only plug it into one of my Tower's 2 front-panel USB3 ports; if i use the "wrong" port, Tower does not see it, whereas the Verbatim stick is happy to work wherever i plug it. Crazy mad SanDisk.

    Hmmm, so not after restart (Vivaldi or PC as such). It may simply be a matter of having Vivaldi running "for some time" (days ?) or could it be related to performing the backups?
    As I almost always shut down PC overnight - maybe I'm not letting it run for long enough to see the problem!?

    Off topic - I have had similar USB stick problems (works in one port but not in another) with a 16GB Kingston USB2; whereas a 128GB SanDisk USB3 stick works in any.



  • Damnit!! No restart, no nothing of any significance, but sometime during today when i wasn't watching [though i've been on my pc all the time]:

  • @Steffie Maybe one of your extensions had an update?
    (Mine haven't moved - so not Ublock or HTTPS :grin: )



  • @TbGbe Yes, per my original post i had also wondered if that was what was going on. This one that moved so very recently was Session Buddy, & looking now at its Chrome Web Store page, i saw this:

    Version: 3.5.1
    Updated: May 7, 2017

    Hmmmm, sehr interessant, nicht wahr?

    Mais si!C'est impossible! Stef alter ego d'GwenDragon. diverse. !



  • It's my mid-morn Tues, still not had first coffee yet so slightly grumpy, & i just glanced at the extension icons. Another move has happened, within the past 75':

    0_1494290461930_upload-06aab2f2-5efc-4173-bca9-8d37b16f02c0

    That's Stylus, & at the Store i see now:

    Additional Information
    Version: 1.0.7
    Updated: May 8, 2017
    Size: 573KiB

    I think this is starting to make sense...

    After posting this i shall restart V to see if the icons self-return to "my" positions. If not, then we've learned that extension updates break/reset V's preset user preference, which would be a pity.



  • @Steffie Oh coolsville!! They self-repositioned back where they should be, with the V relaunch. Nice one V Devs :-)

    I posit therefore that if my pc usage pattern was different, eg, i SD pc every night, or even just closed V prior to Suspending Tower, then each next morning i'd not even be aware of the icons' little party tricks; it'd all happen behind the curtain.



  • Note Board just took a jump to the far-right [unlike France, phew], & sure enough:

    Additional Information
    Version: 7.3.7

    Pity really that it wasn't a jump to the left, coz then i could have logically segued to...

    And then a step to the right

    You bring your knees in tight
    But it's the pelvic thrust
    They really drive you insane.

    Let's do the Time Warp again

    However as it wasn't, i shouldn't. Hmmm, more coffee needed.



  • @Steffie Yay. :coffee:
