Search in address field or search field opens the default search engine's page
this seems to be the same as this post: https://forum.vivaldi.net/post/3875.
It was solved by upgrading to the newest version, which did not help in my case.
I would like to use the address field for the searches. However, Vivaldi opens my default search engine's web page instead. I have enabled the 'search in address field' setting but it won't change anything.
Anybody has a solution for this?
Well that thread was from 2 years ago, lots have changed.
Check which search engine have you selected in Settings/Search and in doubt, restore defaults then select the one you prefer as default search engine with the tick on the right of its entry.
@ManzTheReader What is the searchengine you want to use and what is the search url you use for it?
You can look this up at:
Settings --> Search --> the one with the blue hook is your default engine --> hit the pencil sign next to it -->copy the url from the first field --> paste it here
@zaibon Thanks a lot for the quick response, same to @iAN-CooG!
I restored the defaults as you suggested and then selected the search engine from the list ... and then it worked
I was impatient and removed the list in the first place and added the search engine manually which was when I screwed it up! I checked now how the search engine entries need to look like and now it is clear I think.
Thanks again and best regards,
