Make Tamper Chrome work under Vivaldi Linux?

  • I used to use FF and regularly used Tamper Data for my work.
    Using Chrome, found Tamper Chrome (extension and App) to work similarly.
    I cannot for the life of me get this to work in Vivaldi. I checked all support sites. closest I get was to enable the check box for "Controlled by Extension:" under the Tabs preference but that option is greyed out (unselectable) in my Linux install (1.12.955.48 (Stable channel) (64-bit))

    Has anyone gotten positive results with Developer tools and Tamper?

  • The controlled by extension setting does nothing in this case. It's meant for extensions that provide a custom new tab page. Vivaldi just has a different implementation of devtools compared to chrome. This might be a minor issue or a serious one. I'd contact the developer and ask them for guidance. Fact is the "Tamper" tab isn't being created in devtools.

    edit: Also I just noticed Tamper Chrome is dependent on a chrome app install. Chrome apps will be deprecated in first quarter 2018, from this point on you won't be able to run this extension anyway (other than on ChromeOS).

    Tamper Chrome

    A bug with Vivaldi, it does not add a new tab to developer tools, same issue as with some other extensions. 😞
