  • looking around... first?



  • @iAN-CooG Assuming zero-based indexing with the author Ruarí being 0th, you would be 1st, but not the first. 😉



  • [Regression] Crash and bookmarks lost after Copy&Paste of bookmark folder (VB-47352)

    This looked particularly nasty, good to see it fixed.



  • It's just an impression or now Vivaldi is starting always maximized? On both my win7 PC seems to always work, and I've closed/restarted many times. 🙂



  • [Regression] Address field is empty in note and bookmark editors (VB-47197)

    also this was worrying, good to see it quickly restored to normal behaviour.



  • Yeah, it even seem to remember correctly the unmaximized window position correctly every restart. OK then, horray \o/

    @lonm: Yeah if you don't upgrade to this build, your bookmarks will could end up like the cover image above!🔥

    @ruario You mean, the last Snapshot was really 2.3 Codename "Bonfire"? 😉



  • The Print (Preview) is again not working in the latest SS 1401.7 and 1400.4 on certain sites . It was fixed for me in SS 1386.4. I reported this already for SS 1332.4.

    It still works for some of the earlier problem sites reported (i.e. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010S9N6OO) but not for others (i.e. https://www.ebay.com/itm/391970438731).

    When I try to print certain pages like
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/391970438731 in the latest few snapshots, the Print Preview window opens but then it's stuck at the "Loading Preview" animation. I tried the following:

    • Opened the same website in Private Window with all Extensions disabled (no change)

    • Using Right-Mouse-Click -> Print or CTRL+P makes no difference

    • Print works fine both in Chrome and Edge



  • This bug has resurfaced again. Bookmark Bar folders fail to open.

    Restarting the browser fixes it.



  • Even though the UI is hidden, V shows it at every restart now.



  • @AXK Unable to confirm here. Both fullscreen and Chromeless UI are restored on a restart whether done in the usual way or by typing vivaldi://restart in the URL field.

    I use a dual monitor system with a maximised window on both monitors, but also applies to restarting Vivaldi from a single window on my primary monitor.


    Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit build 17763.194 • Snapshot 2.3.1401.7 (64-bit)



  • This version suddenly exit fullscreen mode and stays in windowed mode until browser restart and sometimes not even restart can't fix it. Full clean uninstall of previous version and reinstalled this one. Oh and blog + mail service had today issues to connect to them.



  • [Regression] Settings window is only partly visible on some resolutions (VB-47388) is not fixed for me, or only partly. The preferencies window is still not centered on the screen.



  • Thank you for fixing the bookmark panel, as I use it a lot. What I like about the snapshots is that hey keep up with the Chromium releases. Only other browsers that do this are Chrome and Opera, and Opera is incompatible with YouTube TV,, and slow. Neither is a problem with Vivaldi. Nice job!



  • This update seems to fix a long-standing (I think since the very beginning) issue that I had - the Settings window opening on my primary monitor.

    I'm on Linux Mint Cinnamon, and I have my primary monitor on the right and my secondary monitor on the left. The settings window would always open on the left (secondary) monitor, instead of on the primary monitor. This issue seems to happen for a lot of programs on Linux (games in particular always want to open on the leftmost monitor).

    However, a new bug seems to have been introduced. If I have the browser window fullscreen, then minimize the window, then unminimize, the window will not return to fullscreen. Instead the window takes up the fullscreen, but it not maximized (I notice this because the maximize icon is different, and because my tabs do not reach the top of the screen).

    It appears the only way to fix this is to drag the window away from the top of my screen, and then hit the maximize icon again.

    I can confirm it and is the same issue i said above (the maximize one and i think is related with the new Hide UI function added with 2.3)



  • OK, as a certifiable dimwit, i'll bite. Has anyone deduced the "right" way to use the new Settings option for tab-stacks in the preceding Snapshot?

    Prior to the recent two Snapshots, these were my relevant enabled settings:

    0_1545178279632_20181219_001.png

    0_1545178298089_20181219_002.png

    For several months my default was "Open Tabs in Current Tab Stack", but i grew tired of that & recently deselected it.

    Now, i have enabled the new option, "As Tab Stack with Related Tab", then gone about my morning news, current affairs & Linux browsing of my regular sites in my usual manner*... & have observed NO apparent change at all in the way my multiple spawned/child tabs have arranged themselves. Certainly exactly none of them self-stacked; i still needed to do that manually as usual.

    *From parent-site1 [eg, The Guardian] i peruse the home-page & open multiple child pages in the background via wheel-click. With ps1 now "read" i manually stack all its kids via right-click "Stack Tabs by Host". Next i peruse ps2 & repeat the procedure, thence ps3 etc. Now i'm ready to read all my multiple stacked child-tabs. As stated above, the way all this proceeded today appears afaics completely identical to yesterday, when i still used the older Snapshot.

    @Steffie Don't feel bad. I can't figure it out, either.
