Bookmarklets replaces the URL in the address bar
As a workaround, you can either
- clone the tab after the URL has been replaced to recover its URL, or
as the last command in the bookmarklet, i.e. just before
})();at the end, in order for the URL in the address bar to reappear after triggering the bookmarklet.
I can't believe they still haven't fixed this, Vivaldi must be the only browser that doesn't handle bookmarklets correctly.
@postbb This bug was previously fixed when the code for the address bar was rewritten (I was able to remove the workaround extra code from my bookmarklets previously), but has returned as a regression, and you're correct that the old workaround no longer works anymore. I've reported the bug as VB-66045.
workaround worked for me today 2020-04-22, with Vivaldi 3.0.1874.23 (Stable channel) (64-bit) on Windows 10 OS Version 1903 (Build 18362.778),
but I thought that (); (open & close paren & semicolon) that I have at the end of my bookmarklets was supposed to do what the workaround fixes. I'm guessing it won't be fixed unless Chrome fixes their stuff for Chromium.

@jesus2099 Your issue was a duplicate of VB-18245
Sorry to say, but fixed bug reports are not reopened as i know.
I am unhappy, that bug regressed and came back.
