Open Speed dial objects in new tab



  • First post. Did a search on the subject of this thread and was unable to find anything. If I missed a menu setting my apologies. First I would like to thank the developers for a beautiful browser-- and the community for a lot of good information here. I am in process of moving to Vivaldi from Firefox. I need to be able from the speed dial tab, to click on a number of items and have them open in new tabs for speed browsing- and then be able to click through the new tabs at leisure. I can not figure out how to do this. Again many thanks for the excellent browser and the great community. Regards Expat Quito Ecuador

    As for opening a speed dial in a back-ground-tab you can middle mouse click the speed dial, but, there is currently a bug that if there is a scroll bar/the window is rather small, middle mouse page navigation will be triggered. By opening them in the back-ground you should be able to browser these as freely as you'd like (Hopefully). Glad you like the browser, hope this helped a little at least)


  • Vivaldi Team

    If all else fails, you can open a new tab in the back-ground through the right-mouse context menu (Right-click -> Open In New Tab)

    Thanks for the quick reply. Using on a MacBook Pro laptop on Mavericks - so mousing is somewhat limited. Browser is great even with the limitation.

    Regards and again many thanks

  • Aronad, like most of the devs/administrators must be on Windows or Linux … hence the "middle mouse click". On a Mac, if you haven't set up Right Mouse Click on your trackpad, hold down Control and click; which should bring up a contextual menu, or Cmd-click should open the page in a new background tab.

    Those are both standard Mac behaviours on all browsers I've tried, and work for me in Vivaldi.

    HTH :)

    Opera and then Vivaldi comes with shortcuts originated either from windows, mac and unix worlds.

    CTRL+ Click comes from the days when Macs had the poor one button mice.

    Middle click comes from Unix but practically any Windows mouse has at least three buttons.

    That said CTRL+Click works on Windows and Linux too, and middle button works on Macs, if you have a good mouse connected to them.

    Anyway the shortcuts are mentioned in the sticky "tips and tricks" thread



  • True, but apparently the OP, like every Mac user that I can think of — especially those using MacBooks — uses the trackpad rather than a mouse. I don't know if any of the mice Apple have made can or could do a Middle click, so generally Mac users, except perhaps those who use three-button third party mice, don't think in those terms. Also, it seemed to me that the OP didn't know of the Ctrl-Click or Cmd-Click possibilities, or s/he wouldn't have posted the question in the first place.
    May I say here, my comment in no way was intended to denigrate either Windows or Linux and their users; just that in following the threads in this Mac forum, it seems to me that most 'senior' people who have responded have indicated that they are Windows rather than Mac users. From the post you link to in the "tips and tricks" thread, I think I can assume that you too are not a Mac user either, as you don't mention Cmd-Click on a Mac to open a link directly in a background tab without calling up the contextual menu.

    Ok. I will edit the link specifying also Cmd.

    Usually while many Win users don't mind to use Macs, most Mac users are either people who switched from Windows or people who use Macs and Wintel machines in mixed environments or via bootcamp/parallels/whatever.

    So, usually, the majority of Mac users are well aware of the little differences between the environments like CMD v.s. CTRL.

    Especially taking in account that CTRL+Click or CMD+Click aren't Vivaldi/Opera only shorcuts
