Bookmark Bar opens tab without options in all windows

  • Hi.
    I was hoping to get some help on a little problem with Vivaldi.

    I believe it all started after the last update of Vivaldi.

    The thing is:

    When I right click a tab from my Bookmarks Bar (below the address bar) I don't get any options for how I want to open the link (new tab, new window and so on). Instead the tab is being opened in all my different Vivaldi windows at the same time.

    Same thing for a left click just that my 2 active tabs in each window get overridden by the new tab I wanted to open.

    When I open tabs from my sidebar (the thing with bookmarks, downloads, timeline etc.) I don't have the multiple tab problem.

    It's a little frustrating after a while so I hope you can help me with this one.

    Thanks in advance!

  • @Obstfuchs Please give your Vivaldi version when reporting problems. I have seen such problems about multiple tabs opening before, and sent bug reports, but they no longer occur.

    There is no right-click menu on Opened Bookmark bar folders, only on the Bookmark Folder itself. This is a long-standing, and well known missing feature that you can vote for.

    Sorry to forget that one! the version is 2.2.1388.37 (Stable channel) (32-Bit)

  • @Obstfuchs I could not reproduce it in 2.2.1388.37 (Stable channel) (64-bit), but it would not surprise me if this bug is not properly squashed yet.

    i'll do so 🙂 thank you!

    I just noticed that it only happens when i try to open a link from a folder out of the bookmark bar. Links not in folders do work properly.
