First snapshot of 2019 – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1420.4


  • Vivaldi Team

    We are back to work on your favorite browser. So let’s start the year with a few nice fixes and a major Chromium bump.

    Click here to see the full blog post



  • FIRST



  • [Developer Tools] Opening links from inspector opens them twice (VB-11330)
    [Developer Tools] Saving an image doesn’t work (VB-47836)

    cool to see some love for the devtools, confirmed working

    [Settings] Add option to keep last selected search engine (VB-45455)

    great, thank you!

    Address bar can be deleted again now, cool.



  • This also seems to fix the issue with the back button on a mouse on macOS not navigating "back"



  • History view now only shows the whole month for me. No option to show only a week or a day.

    Also, the option to search history vanished. I've been using the address bar instead.

    (on Windows 10)



  • @flotsam: Same here. They were there at first, but when I got to the month option after clicking through 'em, the whole button bar vanished.



  • @flotsam Same here. I had access to day's and week's view but when I selected the whole month, the options disappeared and I can't' go back to week or day (using Windows 10 last version).



  • Looks like the minimize issue on windows is still there. When Vivaldi is minimized from fullscreen, and then maximized again, it won't fully maximize, and the maximize button loses all functionality. It can be fixed with pressing F11 twice, or dragging the window down and to the top again if you have snap assist enabled on windows.

    The problem looks like this:

  • Thanks and welcome back 🙂 Also Happy New Year!

    The option to keep last selected search engine was much needed, awesome addition.

    ✍🏻 With this build I'm experiencing some crashes while browsing within a private window.



  • It's time to develop a integrated button to pop out video window; like Opera does.



  • Wow! Save last search engine in address field, nice. Save/Show passwords in the settings, nice. Vivaldi can now tag those two items as "done". At least as far as I'm concerned V can tag them as "done".

    These are two features a bunch of users wanted to see. Again..."Wow!"



  • @Para-Noid said:

    done

    Do you mean In Progress?



  • Also, it looks like web panels don't automatically close any more upon losing focus. If you use floating panels, and have "Auto-close Inactive Panel" checked, they still just stay open if you click on the page behind them. This doesn't seem to affect the stock panels like window, history or download.



  • [Developer Tools] Opening links from inspector opens them twice (VB-11330)

    Good to see dev tools getting fixes. This coupled with the device emulator now working in a non-docked dev tools instance is great to see.



  • [Passwords] Passwords should be visible in Settings (VB-14045)

    Nice, no need to check passwords in chrome:// anymore ^^

  • @potmeklecbohdan Nope. As far as I'm concerned they are done. The keywords are, "as far as I'm concerned".
    As far as Vivaldi is concerned "In Progress" is not only correct, it is also appropriate.



  • @Para-Noid Sorry, that's my English… I haven't known the word.



  • Is there a way to open last session from the history or something, EVEN if I didn't save the session but it's kind of special thing it's my last session it should be preserved some where like what if it was accidental closure



  • VB-39051 Still the only page in vivaldi,. the settings, is unable to be zoomed.

    VB-47788 Tab bar disappears on killing full screen video - not fixed
