BUG As a user[0], when I close a session window, I want my window size and location to persist so I don't have to full screen it every time I restart



  • Hi all,

    Thanks for software

    BUG As a desktop[0] user, when I close a session window, I want my window size and location to persist so I don't have to full screen it every time I restart

    I have conducted a full reset[1]

    If anyone else reading this agrees please up-vote or reply "+1"

    I'll follow up again in the near future and base my decision to keep using Vivaldi on whether this is fixed

    Please let me know if there's a more suitable place to leave issues

    Let me know if you have any issues - happy to help

    Hope to hear back

    Yours faithfully

    @ldexterldesign The Vivaldi Forums are a great place to request assistance from the community or to get confirmation for issues that you run into, but the developers don't actively monitor the discussions that go on here.

    Please let me know if there's a more suitable place to leave issues

    You can file a bug report at https://vivaldi.com/bugreport/

    Thanks, and welcome to the Vivaldi community!



  • Hi @xyzzy,

    Thanks for reply

    Hope you're well

    In your experience is it worth posting issues here ( http://forum.vivaldi.net ) before formally creating bugs; namely to see if anyone else is experiencing the same problem(s)?

    Hope to hear back

    Yours faithfully



  • @ldexterldesign Registered on this forum to write exactly about this. Resizing a windows on OSX is not effortless. Remembering the window size from the last session would save me not only the 5 seconds to adjust the window, but also lowers the chance that I forgot what I was about to do with the new browser window. Solving this issue would greatly increase usability for me. I hope this is made a priority.

    @ldexterldesign Everyone is welcome to submit a bug report; you don't need anyone's permission to do so. :-) I don't think that there are any official guidelines but these are the ones that I generally go by:

    • You should definitely file a bug if you encounter an issue and can replicate it consistently with a clean profile and with no extensions installed.

    • The forums are beneficial when you encounter a glitch but can't find a way to replicate it cleanly. It's nice when another user can confirm that they're running into the same issue, and even better if you can work collectively to find a way to reproduce the glitch consistently. The developers can't fix a bug if the problem can't be reproduced.

    • If a longstanding bug is annoying you but isn't getting fixed, file a bug report as well -- numerous duplicate bugs will (eventually) help to raise its priority internally and (hopefully) get the issue fixed faster.

    • If you're testing a pre-release Snapshot build and encounter a bug, you should first report it in the comments section of the Snapshot Blog. If it turns out to be a new issue, file a bug report.... and if a Vivaldi developer asks you to file one, please do so immediately while the issue has their full attention. If it turns out to be a known problem but it's still really important to you that it gets fixed, file a bug report.

    If you're still unsure about what to do, post here. We're always more than happy to help out in any way that we can!

    VB-29511

    Could not reproduced by our internal tester from Vivaldi with Vivaldi 1.11.

    With which version do you have the issue yet?

    I remember some resizing issues were fixed in a 1.14 Snapshot.

    @ldexterldesign If you look at the Mac issues that have been fixed in the release changelogs, you'll see that the Vivaldi developers are hard at work to bring Vivaldi in line with how a native Mac application is supposed to behave.

    The bugs relating to window size/position seem to have been fixed now and new windows don't open with random sizes anymore. There are still some cases where Vivaldi can get itself into a "maximized" state and Option-"Green window control button" doesn't un-zoom the window back to a normal state, but hopefully these will get fixed soon as well.

    As for wanting Vivaldi to restart in fullscreen mode after you Quit while in fullscreen mode, I think Vivaldi already does this, but only if you have "Startup with: Last Session" configured in your Startup settings. If you don't resume your last session, the correct behaviour is for Vivaldi to start with its window in a normal state; this is consistent with other browsers (such as Safari and Chrome) as well as non-browser applications (such as Terminal and TextEdit) on macOS.



  • @gwen-dragon hey, my version is detailed in my original post. Yes this has been fixed between 1.9 and latest release. Apologies.
