Option or bug? Since 1.12, right click highlights/selects text just like leftclick.

  • Ever since 1.12, (and every following release including snapshots) the right mouse button behaves just like the left mouse button regarding highlighting/selecting. You can only reproduce this with vivaldi mouse gestures disabled.

    Is this a new feature or option or is it a bug?

    It's an issue for me because I use a chrome extension for my mouse gestures, and every time I do a gesture, it selects text and stuff on the page. I would simply eliminate the issue by using vivaldi mouse gestures, but it lacks the option to have multiple gestures for the same action, which is why I use an extension instead.

    @mrlenxa It's confirmed, not fixed, and not assigned to anyone yet. Low-priority bug.

  • It is so sad. 😞
    Without proper working gestures is V unusable. 😞

    I have no problem with gestures until last update.
    Its not Low-priority bug for me. 😞

    @batmaster Gestures and select-on-right-click-and-drag are unrelated. Gestures are being worked on quite intently right now.
