Allow user to enter file://... as a home page

  • This may be a bug. I just opened 1.14 for the first time and my home page setting (from 1.13) was gone. It was replaced by the default for Vivaldi.

    I tried to clear the field using backspace, but it only cleared back as far as http:// and then kept putting the whole default back in as I kept backspacing.

    The only way I was able to get it to work was to select the whole field and copy and paste my URL into it.


    I should just be able to type it in.

    Yes, it's a bug, not a feature request. I already submitted it as:

    (VB-37088) Difficult to Type Localhost File Path for Home Page

    You can type file:// but you have to select http:// before you can delete it. Very awkward to use.

  • @Pesala I'm on Linux, not Windows. I don't know if this problem is platform specific or not.

    I am on Windows, but since it also affects Linux, I have moved it again to All Platforms.
