Issue: On download, Open button behaves like Save As...

  • Not sure when this started (I think after upgrading to the latest version (1.11.917.39 (Stable channel) (32-bit)), but when I now download a file, I can no longer open it directly with the associated program in Windows. For any file type I tried (docx, mp3, odt, ...), clicking the Open button has the same result as clicking Save As...: a save file dialogue window appears.

    None of the settings under vivaldi://settings/downloads/ result in the desired behaviour. I have not been able to find any reference to this issue (or anything similar) anywhere. And I'd rather not do a complete reset of my Vivaldi profile.

    Any help is much appreciated.

  • I can't reproduce, I tried an .mp3 and a .torrent, the file is saved in the default download dir and the associated program is started.
    Do you have any extension that could interfere? Can you try disabling all extensions and retry?
