Borked Tabs on Vivaldi



  • I posted about the weird Vavaldi bug with some YT videos here:
    https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/21888/vivaldi-failed-to-playback-some-youtube-video-on-newer-vivaldi

    tl;dr : Vivaldi 1.12.955.48 64bit couldn't playback some YT video that works just fine on W8.1's IE or Firefox or Vivaldi 32bit 1.9.818.50

    But now with another bug with the tabs:
    alt text

    Sometimes when closing a tab (X button, Ctrl+W or mouse gesture) it'll just borked up the tab bar completely. When this happened I would be no longer able to rearrange the tabs, any new tab will begin move into the empty space that the closed tab/tabs left there; if even more tabs are then opened then they just go under the one before them (the tabs that were already opened will neither move or resize from its/their place in the tab bar) and therefore cannot be selected by mouse, only accessible through Ctrl-Tab (or through the Vivaldi>Windows> menu, I guess).

    And so I am now left to conclude that the Vivaldi automatic update has fked up my Vivaldi installation, since before running into all these annoyances I had always manually download the installer and update/upgrade using the installer instead of just letting the automatic update do anything.

    This bug is known for some users and already reported.

    You had deactivated the autoupdate in vivaldi://settings/updates/ and you Vivaldi was updated automatically to 1.12?

    I had the only setting in that updates section "Notify About Updates" disabled. What I meant was that I had always manually download the Vivaldi installer and use it to update Vivaldi before the two most recent times (the 2nd most recent was because I got lazy, and the most recent one being an attempt to try to solve the above YT issues) and just use Vivaldi>Help>Check for Updates... and just let the automatic process take over.
