Keys repeat in inspector

  • Sometimes when inspect something on a page and I try to change a value, my key just repeats. I have to close the inspector and open it again. This only happens when the inspector was already open.

    If I the inspector is NOT open and I inspect an item on a page, everything works fine.

  • Yeah, it's known, happens rather frequently. If you can find a way to replicate it 100% of the time -- explain the steps, make a video and submit a bugreport. I believe the devs have still trouble pinning this down. At least I haven't heard otherwise.

  • I was able to duplicate this pretty easily.

    • Start Vivaldi, shows Google Search page as default.
    • Right click on "Google Search" button and select "Inspect". Inspector opens in new window.
    • Click back to browser window.
    • Right click again on "Google Search" button and select "Inspect".
    • Click on "" under the Styles tab.
    • in the text entry area that appears (for the style specification), type a letter - it repeats until the window is closed.

    If you close the Inspector in between uses, it doesn't happen.

    If the inspector is attached to the window - it doesn't happen.

    @philmarshall05486 Confirmed. I can reproduce this too, but it only happens consistently for me when the developer tools are undocked.

    Edit: I filed a bug for this -- VB-32236
