Window behavior when opening a link from an external program

  • Hello,

    I would like to file a bug (if it's not existing yet)
    Following scenario:

    • Vivaldi is open with two or more windows.
    • Window #1 is open and active
    • Window #2 is minimized to the taskbar
    • When I now open a link in Thunderbird or another program it loads the webpage in Window #1 in a new tab. So far so good, but Vivaldi also brings up the minimized Window #2 in front of all other windows, which is kind of annoying.

    I use Vivaldi 1.15.1137.3 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    on Windows 10 64-bit

  • Same for me.

    Please do not post in local German forum in English.
    I will move the thread.

  • Also happens when double-clicking an HTML file in Windows Explorer.
