Moving a tab to a new window creates a file on my desktop.
Whenever I have a window thats not maximized, and i want to drag a tab to the open space on my desktop (to create a new seperate window), this action causes vivaldi to create a shortcut file of the tabs URL on my desktop. Sometimes it doesnt create a shortcut but instead will show a copying error message.
This is VERY annoying as I tear tabs multiple times a day, and like to keep a clear desktop.
Im loving Vivaldi so far, been using it for a few months now full time, but this one issue is driving me insane.
Has anyone else experienced this? is there a workaround/fix?
Thanks for your time and please let me know if I can add any extra info for debugging purposes.
Where are you dragging from - the tab bar, the Window panel, the address bar, etc. It may act differently in those various circumstances.
im dragging tabs from the tab bar... and as for the tab, i usually click and hold in the centre of it.
I could confirm OP.
Vivaldi 1.12.955.38 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
Debian sid amd64
In XFCE, my only DE, replicating what OP did a few times make "Create Link" (create shortcut) window to open. I didn't met any error message though.
is there a workaround/fix?
Workaround - instead of dragging/dropping, you can use right click context menu (Move to... New Window).
I have reproduced this on Manjaro (Arch Linux x64) with KDE Plasma 5.
