[BUG] Drag tab with sound to a new window makes speaker favicon disappear

  • EDIT : I noticed the https://vivaldi.com/bugreport/ section after posting, and I can't delete my post now... I reported it now, if a mod comes and see this post, feel free to delete it. I apologize for the inconvenience.


    Hello everyone!
    I downloaded 1.10 stable earlier today, and I noticed a bug. I'm not sure if it was there in the previous stable version that I used or not.
    The bug is quite simple to explain: if you have a tab that makes sound (hence it has a speaker favicon) and you drag that tab to a new or another Vivaldi window, the speaker favicon vanishes (though the tab still produce sound).


    • Open Vivaldi Browser 1.10
    • Open a new tab
    • In this new tab, open an URL with content that produces sound ( let's say https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPjJszHidhI )
    • Notice that the favicon on the tab turns into a speaker icon
    • Drag and drop to a new window the tab producing sound
    • Notice that the favicon on the tab has turned back to the website favicon ( but that the tab still produces sound )
    • Go on vivaldi.net, search for any mention of the bug, find out that there isn't any, and report the bug [DONE]


    Vivaldi version: 1.10.867.38 (Stable channel) (32 bits)
    Operating system version: Windows 10 Family 64 bits

    Additional data

    No relevant additional data,

  • No need for the post to be deleted. In fact it is even recommended to make a post about your bug first so others can comment it or provide workarounds or even fixes for your problem.
    In this case I'd like to ad that I can only reproduce this bug when I drag a tab to an already existing window.
    But when I drag a music playing tab to the desktop and it creates a new window it needs about 10-15 seconds and the speaker icon appears on the tab in the new window.

    Tested with viv 1.10.867.34 32bit || win 7 64bit

  • Hello Zaibon,
    Thanks for the feedback!
    I tried it again today at work, on Vivaldi 1.10.867.38 32 bits on Windows 7 Pro 64 bits, and I got yet another result: if I drag tab to a new window, the speaker favicon disappears forever (no reappearance after 10-15s like you), and if I drag tab to an exisiting window, the speaker favicon works as intended (it doesn't disappear at all)...
