Gmail not working properly on 1.15.1147.19

  • I think this was a problem on the previous handful of snapshots too, and I thought upgrading might fix it. Sadly not, and it just introduced the lazy loading tabs issue :(

    Gmail doesn't seem to be working in a couple of irritating ways. Firstly, hovering over a message in, e.g. inbox should change the pointer to the hand icon. It doesn't and sometimes when I click, nothing happens, and I have to click twice to get gmail to open the message. Secondly, and this has been reported before but over a year ago, I can't drag files into a message compose window to attach them to emails.

    Both of these confirmed working OK on Chrome 65.0.3325.181, and I think V is using Chromium 65.0.3325.183, so unless this is something very new in chromium, it looks more like a Vivaldi thing?

  • And after 4 restarts of Vivaldi, suddenly it works (hand icon and dragging files to compose window), although I now often also see a 'Move...' tooltip rather than gmail opening the message, as if I had started dragging the message to drop it on a label. Clicking again when the tooltip is visible (only for a short time) opens the message. Almost like it needs a double-click, which it shouldn't.

  • And now back to not working—no Vivaldi restart, just working in gmail and various other tabs, and the mouse hover pointer and drag/drop just stopped. Note that page refresh doesn't affect things; once it's broken, it stays broken. Also tried disabling all extensions, but no difference.

  • Sorry for the long chain of replies—just collecting data... I also just noticed I'm seeing the same pointer problem in google calendar. Hovering on an event should change the pointer to the hand (which I see in Chrome), but not now in Vivaldi.

    I do see the hand for links in other webpages, so it seems like something Google is doing that V doesn't like...

    I just found this problem with Gmail.

    I was unable to open any message: All I got was a tooltip "Move conversation to," which also did nothing.

    Restarting Vivaldi fixed the issue.

    @pesala Can't produce it on any Vivaldi version. Perhaps a transient glitch.

  • I will use this topic, so i don't open a new one.

    I recently found Vivaldi and so far i love it, but i have found a problem within gmail.
    I received a PDF file, i clicked on it, it opened regularly in a popup as usual, but when i clicked print, it just opened a new tab and...... nothing..... nothing happens.... If i press ctrl+p, again opens a new tab and nothing...

    In chrome it worked as usual...

    Please fix it, as i dont want to download files if i don't need them to...

    Im using Windows 10 Pro N, Vivaldi 1.15.1147.47 (Stable channel)
