Can't setup an extension hotkey

  • Hi, I've found two great extensions but I can't setup a shortcut for any of them

    I installed TabsPane and Hawkeye - Intuitive Tab Manager to view my opened tabs and choose which one to open as I frequently find myself using my left hand in the keyboard and the other one using the mouse.

    I went to vivaldi://extensions/ and at the bottom of the page I configured a shortcut that is not a duplicate of any pre configured one but does not seem to work, any help would be much appreciated


    forgot to add the version I'm using:

    Vivaldi 1.15.1147.36 (Stable channel) (32-bit)
    OS Windows
    JavaScript V8
    Flash C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer32_29_0_0_140.dll

    Command Line "E:\Vivaldi.1.13.1008.36\Application\vivaldi.exe" --vivaldi-standalone --ppapi-flash-path="C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer32_29_0_0_140.dll" --flag-switches-begin --flag-switches-end

  • @internetuser999 it has been just implemented in the current 1.16 snapshots, but I was able to just associate the activate extension shortcuts, not the other options, in uBlock Origin, the other options don't react.

  • @ian-coog Oh ok, I tought this was implemented already sorry, is good to know is a work in progress, thanks @ian-coog, btw I found a work around, I pinned the tab the extension generates, It gets locked to CTRL + 1 if I put it as the first pinned tab, but now I can see all the thumbnail images for each tab, I'm sure this could be a beautiful feature if implemented natively by the browser.

    Thanks 🙂
