Vivaldi is highlighting elements when I scroll with MMB pressed down and I want it to stop
So, yeah, just like the title says. This was changed recently (with 1.10? haven't had time to whine about it until now)
I really, really, really, really, really, REALLY want it to be like it used to be. Can I revert it somehow in Vivaldi's settings? I realize that many people may find it useful but it drives me crazy.
Btw, anyone working on the mail client you promised us?
The Mail client is in progress and tested internally.
@Gwen-Dragon Great. It's a piece of some really anticipated news.
But what about the problem at hand? Can I somehow revert Vivaldi's behavior to its previous state? As I said, I see the logic of the change and most people will likely be pleased by it, but it doesn't work for me personally. Would really appreciate a solution.

No, not in Vivaldi at this time.
But a workaround by changing your behavior:
Press MMB once(!), release MMB and move mouse to direction you want to scroll
@Gwen-Dragon Haha. Yes. I know that and I've been trying to do that. But a two decades old habit is more than the second nature of a man. Especially that other software I use (in fact, all of it) still allows me to swish around by holding the button just for a moment.
Maybe you could mention this little issue to the devs so they could allow users to change this behaviour in Vivaldi's options? I realize that it's certainly not something of great importance but if more oldies like myself were to complain about it, maybe something could be done about the issue?
I've learned to live with the fact that Vivaldi is incompatible with online banking and that it's the only browser that doesn't accept the "refresh" button on my mouse but these issues are piling up...

Yes, i can imagine changing a habit only for one program is not nice.

Yes, thats why it is a bug in Vivaldi and it will be fixed, teh devs knwo about this.
