How to Disable Speed Dial? (completely)
vkvkvk last edited by vkvkvk
Is there any way to disable this thing completely? There are solutions like setting start and home pages to about:blank, they work for new window and new tabs. But when I start the browser, it still opens Speed Dial, maybe to show who's in charge here, haha.
Any advice? Thanks!
EDIT: my bad, SD appears when I create a new window (Cmd+N), not at browser start-up.

Set "startup with" to anything but startpage in vivaldi://settings/startup/. If this doesn't work for you, something is wrong with your profile.

@luetage there's something wrong with my profile, because blank pages used in settings/startup
What can be wrong with my profile? I've just installed V, I didn't have time to screw it up (yet). Is there any way to debug it?

I think this is a bug, if you type about:blank in address field it show a blank page.
Iirc there was a feature request about it.
@vkvkvk In settings, under Tabs, set New Tab as Blank Page. See if that helps.
@vkvkvk And last, but not least, you can open your bookmarks panel, and whatever folder is set to Speed Dial, you can right-click on it and select "Remove from Speed Dial."
The result appears to be that although your browser opens in "start page," there's nothing there.

@ayespy Yeah, I ended up with deleting all items from SD page...
@vkvkvk You don't have to do that - you can just remove any folder that is set to "speed dial" from speed dial.
Now - experimenting further, I found that if all your specific page settings are set the http://about:blank (rather than without the http://). and if you set your new tab (under settings/tabs) to http://about:blank, then when you start the browser, it indeed opens to a blank page, not and empty Speed Dial. Of course that means you have no way to open your Bookmark and History full-page editors, except ctrl+b and ctrl+h.

@ayespy History and Bookmarks pages are also available from the menu and from quick commands.
@luetage OK, yes. I don't use those, but you're right
