External Link and Vivaldi Focus

  • I'm new to Vivaldi. Originally installed 1.13 and just installed 1.4.
    In the transition to 1.14 Vivaldi opens a new tab but focus does not switch to Vivaldi.
    That is my preferred behavior and was how 1.13 behaved.
    Is this a coded change in behavior or do I need to change a setting?
    I checked the settings but don't see anything that would affect that behavior.
    Or is this an OS issue?
    I did a clean install of 1.14 on macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 Beta (17E139)
    [edit] Correction: installed Vivaldi 1.14.1077.41 (Stable channel) (64-bit)

    Thanks for any help


  • This is an old bug that was recently fixed but has just reappeared with this version. It's pretty annoying, especially if you keep your browser on a separate desktop like I do. Anyway, long story short, if you go back one version (Vivaldi.1.13.1008.44 here) things will behave correctly. That's what I did.
