Ctrl + Shift + Arrow Keys Breaking Vivaldi?

  • I have some global hotkeys for Volume2 that require me to use Ctrl+shift and an arrow key for my media player. I have noticed that if I push any of those keys, Vivaldi becomes nearly unusable. Everything I click on in the browser becomes highlighted, if I click on address bar, it just reloads the page or some other page, and if I click a tab, it becomes highlighted. There doesn't seem to be a way to toggle this off once it's initiated until I close the browser, and there are no hotkeys for the keys specified in the Keyboard settings.

    I know that the problem isn't with any programs outside of Vivaldi because I have disabled all that use the hotkey and it still happens only with this browser.

    I hope that there is a way to disable this, as it is annoying.

  • @icarus77 It maybe spatial navigation shortcuts that are interfering. Search Settings for "navigation" and delete the shortcuts or change them.

  • @icarus77 No it does not. This also smells like a .dll issue.
    If it really is an .dll problem anything might be causing that. Shared .dlls used to cause that conflict back in days. Old .dlls make the same effect too. Debugging Vivaldi(or better repairing it by reinstalling) can give a clue
    I hope it's only a software problem not a hardware so it can be solved without too many efforts

    edit: did you try changing hotkey combination?

  • @pesala this one sounds reasonabe 👍
