  • Finally Minimized tab order fixed, before it was broken i actually wasn't aware how much i use it, thanx.

    I noticed i can select text with middle mouse click, kinda annoying, very often i just want to scroll page with middle click and some text gets selected.

  • Thanks again!!!

    Sadly , still crash at open apps as a window: 
    Hootsuite, tweetdeck, tune in and Evernote. While Google Task Panel open as window without problem
    Perhaps a bug?? or what other option?

    Vivaldi 1.11.917.43 (Stable channel) (64 bits)

  • "Vivaldi does not start with many bookmarks (VB-30865)"
    Ok i have 5k bookmarks and don't have any problem with start, so in that case how much is "many" 😃

  • Moderator

    @Fang In one user's case it was 40K.

  • @Fang 5k bookmarks is considered as "normal" in the usual bookmark hoarder circles, as is having 50 tabs permanently open in the tab hoarder circles ...

    ... but some people are really going over board 😃

    (only 4.5k bookmarks, but confessed tab hoarder with minimum 70++ open tabs here)

  • Off topic, but how is more than a few hundred bookmarks even useful? I find it very very hard to believe that most of those links will be clicked more than once - and by the time they are they're likely to be out of date.

    Heck, I go through some of my few dozen bookmarks probably one time every few years... And for those I often find the page no longer exists.

    Same with keeping more than a couple of dozen tabs open... Do people really go back to those open tabs again and again all day...? If you only want to look at something once or twice then just open it once or twice!

    And it's not like I'm some kind of low-intensity newbie... I use the net for research (although not so much these days) and news, and have done for twenty five years now. I probably see a few hundred pages a day, but I just look and move on.

  • @mossman Long term memory replacement.

    Search engines prefer recent results and finding older stuff again is sometimes almost impossible.
    Of course this is of no interest for people who watch and read only the latest and greatest stuff, but as soon as you do some deeper research, you learn very fast to value your old bookmarks.

    Even dead bookmarks can serve a purpose: You can search for them in the various web caches.
    Lately I searched for something I knew that it had been "out there" about 2002 or '03 and found it in my bookmarks. The site was dead but I could retrieve the contents from archive.org and subsequently changed the URL to point to the archive 😃

    Needs of course good tagging and self written descriptions or else you will not find the right stuff even if it is in your bookmarks.

    @fang: The problem was with a large file and/or many bookmarks that crashed Vivaldi. That's all.

  • @QuHno As I said, I (used to) do a lot of trawling for information for research, but if stuff is worth retaining then I either get a copy of it and archive it properly or note it down somewhere. I also keep a text file "diary" of what I'm doing for each task... just being able to search through those has saved my arse on many occasions!

    Depending on far-from-reliable bookmarks for important information seems rather... adventurous to me...!

  • @mossman There is important and there is "important".
    I store the first and bookmark the later, just in case that I change my mind.
    Additionally I can't and don't want to save the whole web (well, I would want to, but I can't)

  • When is the fix for the damn middle mouse scroll usage that ends up selecting page content bug.. it should be highest priority

  • yes, middle click scrolling is the worst of 1st world problems.

    @Koolio I am not even able to reproduce this bug. I believe you, but if it's only affecting some users it won't be a high priority. With thousands of bugs to fix and not many developers they cannot fix everything at once.

    When it is fixed.
    I agree it is a nagging issue. But, pelase, why can't you release the MMB while moving the mouse down? That is a "fix" on Windows. ☮
