Every picture tells a story – Vivaldi Browser Snapshot 1.12.955.3



  • I don't know which update started it, but I noticed the "Save Delete Cancel" buttons when adding a bookmark were replaced with left-aligned "Save Delete" and a right-aligned "X" that now says cancel on hover. Why the change? I feel like it ruins some of the neatness of the add/edit-a-bookmark thing. At the very least it now feels like a bit of wasted space, and I shudder when words are replaced with symbols that then tell you the same word on hover.



  • @pdray: Another site issue with the space key:
    http://techreport.com/news/32539/iphone-8-and-iphone-8-plus-get-new-guts-and-cut-the-cord#

    Here the space key does nothing. In prior versions, it would do the same as page down.
    The cursor keys and page up and page down continue to work okay here.

    Space bar seems to work fine for me on that site with the latest 32-bit snapshot on Windows 10 (64-bit).



  • Hey, can anyone help me with this issue I'm having?
    I can't comment on the blog even when I'm logged in! I need to use the Forum page to comment here!

    It started a few weeks ago, when I tried logging in to comment on a snapshot release. I went through the sign in procedure just as I normally would, the site redirected me to the Forums page, as always, but when I tried going back to the Blog, the comment box would display a "Log in to join the conversation" message, and clicking anywhere inside the box would do anything! And the user icon was blank, meaning the site doesn't recognize me as logged in!

    The buttons Register and Log In also appear under the comment box, and clicking on them takes me to the Forum page. For some reason I can't log in on the blog, but can log in on the forum. I can't comment, reply or upvote any comments on the blog. Using the forum was the only way i managed to comment.

    Please, send help!



  • @kiriya-aoi I just noticed this and I don't like it either. The original way was better.

    @yamiryuuzero It sounds as though you have 3rd party cookies blocked.



  • I would like to see when was the image modified.
    It's not part of the exif info and it may not be close to the date of creation, but sometimes is the only way to know approximately how old is the image.
    Right now I have to use Firefox to see that information, it was present in older builds of Opera, but it was removed.



  • I'm not getting the image info no matter how many times I try with different images... here's what I get even after waiting for a long time:

    The strange things is that it doesn't happen all the time... some images get a fast inspection but some don't give you anything even after you wait for more than 10 minutes...

    Windows 10 64-bit
    Vivaldi 64-bit



  • This just came to mind: How about showing the current shortcut for every button and clickable element when mouse hovers over it?

    I know I can press "Ctrl + F1" to check them out but I think it'd be really easy and user friendly for a new user to hover his mouse over the some clickable element and not only see a very short tip about what it does but to also see what shortcut activates it...



  • Is the lone check box in Settings/Updates really meant to be a resident-only feature now? If so, why did you drop the method where you're alerted only when the browser is active?

    I only use the beta for testing on the side. It's not normally active. So imagine my surprise when a notification came up via the W10 notification system alerting me to 1.12.955.3--when I was using 1.11. It's true, I hadn't installed 1.12.955.3 yet in the separate beta installation, but more to the point, the beta browser wasn't running. My first thought was that 1.12 had just left beta and that 1.11 could be upgraded, even though I knew it was too early for that.

    I've since unchecked the box in the beta. I've always had the box checked in 1.11 earlier and have never seen the resident Vivaldi updater task like I saw with 1.12 (I think there was an earlier attempt at something along these lines several months ago, but I thought it was dropped).



  • Bug: Download speed is updated in downloads panel after it is finished, until you press "Save" in "Save as.."-dialog.



  • @superkiwi I don't understand what you mean. The download is not even shown in the panel until you press Save or Save As..



  • @lonm Yep same here. It's been like this since the feature was added in the "experiments". I guess they will add multiple windows in the same panel, otherwise it would be pointless.
