Selecting text with mouse in search fields

  • With V 1.12.955.36 it is not possible to select text in the search input fields from eg Google, GOG, Heise. The highlighting disappears immediately after releasing the moue button.

    V unstable doesn't show this behaviour.

    Can not Confirm on Debian 8.9 KDE 4.14 with Vivaldi 1.12.

    Which Linux, which Desktop?
    Which Vivaldi extensions do you use?

  • Here Kubuntu 14.04.5 (KDE) 64Bit, at work an heavily mistreated Debian Lenny 32Bit.
    Both show this behaviour.

    Debian Lenny is old as hell, end of life since 5 years. You expect all is running fine?
    And with 14 Ubuntu LTS you will only get some security updates.
    Not easy.
    You cant update?

    You can report this issue as a bug (for very OS a single report!).

    The debian box is one of my work boxes and more 'based on Lenny' than the the real thing cause most of the packages are upgraded by hand. Upgrading the thing is not an option, I think a replacement would do better.
    Tried Kubuntu 16.04, buggier than our cat. For my purposes 14.04 is good enough.

    Fact: V unstable works fine, V stable not. This arose with 1.12.
    Can anyone else confirm this before I will file a bug report?


  • OK, it's the dict::cc extension with activated textfield search.
