Vivaldi response to mouse back button.

  • I'm running the latest Vivaldi and have just installed a new trackball. Whilst my previous model worked fine the Kensington Expert Wireless back button works but not properly. In trials I did after 7 forward moves through a website the Expert only did 4 to get back to the start. I tried exactly the same moves in Opera and back moves equalled forward moves so there is a problem with Vivaldi on this one. Hope it resolves soon in an update.

  • Can I please be added to the recipient list for the bug? I have exactly the same issue (mouse's back button springs several steps back in the history instead of just one), so I'd like to see if there are any updates or a workaround.

    ETA: I'm using the linux build, and a Kensington trackball with mouse-buttons assigned via xorg's config files.

  • My current workaround for my Kensington Wireless Mouse Trackball is to assign a Vivaldi keyboard shortcut to 'History Back' (Settings/Keyboard/Page). I assigned Alt + Left Arrow. I then assign that combination to my chosen backspace button in Trackballworks.
