Copy & paste shortcuts constantly fail

  • Recently this has become a real headache for me: copying something from Vivaldi using the keyboard shortcuts basically never works.

    I copy something, then paste it to a text editor, and a totally different thing gets pasted. Usually it's something copied from some other app before. Then I have to go back to Vivaldi and copy the thing again using the context menu.

    Can't say exactly when this started. Maybe two-three months ago?

  • Same issue here, really painful – Only right-click/copy works fine.

    I suspect this is related to the performance regressions seen on the last few releases. It's reached the stage where some of my colleagues moved back to Chrome.. And I'm not far from doing the same.

    More surprisingly, I can't find any traces of anybody working on this, anywhere (blog?).

    Please, fix it, Vivaldi is a great web browser but without decent performances, we can't use it.

    Before you anyone ask, note that I did remove all my extensions and the problem persists, only solution is to restart the browser every 30 minutes.
