Has anyone experienced autofill putting login into password field after selecting list item and pressing Tab key?...

  • In about 25% of cases when I try to log in to www.facebook.com at freshly opened Private window I end up here...


    It happens only once per window after startup.

    I'm unable to reproduce. Here's what I do:

    1. Start-up Vivaldi (1.15.1147.64 x64)
    2. Open Private Window.
    3. Navigate to Facebook.
    4. Focus login field.
    5. Keypress first character from the e-mail address saved as the Facebook login.
    6. Keypress [⬇] (down arrow).
    7. Keypress [TAB].

    Result: both fields are filled correctly. I tried several times, skipping step 5 in a few cases, as you didn't specify if that's mandatory. Am I missing something? 🤔

  • @pafflick Oh... i forgot to add that I currently use 1.16.1259.3 x64 Snapshot (@ Win 10 x64)
    But it tends to happen for months...

    Usually randomly but more often just after turning on computer and staring new window when system is bit slower / busy because of startup routines...

    Workaround may be to select the login suggestion by user.
    Activate it by:
    Open chrome://flags#fill-on-account-select
    Set to Enable
    Restart Vivaldi

    Does this help you?

  • @gwen-dragon Thanks, I'll try this 🙂

    This bug still happens from time to time on 2.1.x Win64 Snapshot line... Especially when my machine is really busy.

  • @Gwen-Dragon No difference. Still randomly happens in 2.2.1386.4 (Win64 @ Win 10 x64).
    Even later after start / without high CPU load...


    Looks like Tab key event is handled before executing autofill

    But I cannot find the way for more frequent reproduction... huh 😕

    @ROTFL I can not test it.

    Please report the issue to Vivaldi. May be this issue is a bug.

    Please read how to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.

    //Edit: If you make a screen recording (GIF, Video) and send them, it would be easier to test and understand the issue.
