Vivaldi blocking popups for our cloud based software despite pop-blocking disabled
ok, yes, I've turned of popup blocking, no it hasn't fixed it.
We use a business management tool called Autotask (www.autotask.com/www.autotask.net) and when I try to open a Livelink (basically a hyperlink with a customer ID embedded in it) a new Vivaldi window opens briefly, then closes and the proper window never opens. I have verified in other browsers that this works (IE (ewww) & Chrome).
When you click the Livelink button it should eventually take you to https://us.passportalmsp.com/passwords/index/[clientidhere] but that has never worked in Vivaldi.
Edit: I changed Settings -> Appearance -> Open popups in tabs (check it on) and was able to see Vivaldi redirect to the proper page, then promptly close the page before it even started to render). I noticed after I clicked the Livelink option that I could see the URL blink by and was able to capture it in a screenshot.
I've gone to vivaldi://settings/content/popups and allowed popups globally, added my site to the allow list, and clicked on the lock in the address bar and verified that popups are allowed in the site. There are no other add-ins/extensions and have been verified on a brand new clean computer/browser install.
Is there any other protection in Vivaldi that can be removed? (I only use this browser for this one site since it tends to open about 20 windows/tabs).
This behavior has been happening for months (I don't know that it's ever worked) Currently running 1.15.1147.64 (Stable channel) (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro 1803 (but also seeing it on my Win 7 Pro SP1 machine).
PS. I'm open to suggestions but I'm a 20 year network admin with light development experience - I've dug through everything I can find. If it's a simple setting in the menus I'll eat my hat!
@gorillad Are you running any extensions?
@ayespy Nope, vanilla Vivaldi. Tried it fresh after loading it on my freash new Win10 machine, no luck
Here's a screenshot of permissions for the site:
This appears to be the same as this user saw but he never found an answer: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/22796/vivaldi-1-13-pop-up-regression-with-autotask
Crazy!! last night after Vivaldi updated to 2.0.1309.37 - the problem fixed itself. Not sure what was changed but things appears to be working on this computer. I'm going to test a few more tomorrow to confirm that it's really fixed in the latest update!
I spoke too soon, it's still happening. It's kinda intermittent and seems to work if I have tab open, but if if that tab has gone to the background (since it opened yet another new tab).
It also happens when I copy and paste in a URL that attempts to open a new "window" (redirected to tab) and close the existing one.
I think I have isolated the page that's getting tripped up and can share it.
