Bug: New private window should not ask to be default browser

  • The issue is in the title When I open a private window and vivaldi is not default browser, it asks to become default one. I'm on a mac, FYI.

    Vivaldi checks at start if it is set as default browser at Settings → Startup if you had enabled this.

    Why is this a bug?

  • I don't expect that a private window would ask to be a default browser, moreover when I opened current window browser already asked that question.
