Drag & drop toolbar buttons now live… but not for all buttons



  • With Vivaldi 2.4, a toolbar button can be rearranged to other toolbars through holding shift+drag. I like this, but I see that this functionality does not count for that hideous 'profile button' nor for the extension buttons.

    I suggest that all buttons receive this functionality and when dragging, a panel would appear in the middle of Vivaldi to drop off buttons which need to disappear out of sight.

    Customization of bars will be enhanced and moving the profile button will come.



  • The toolbar customization is not perfect yet. Below is a customized FIREFOX Toolbar. There I can move buttons across the entire bar. In Vivaldi with the new update i still can't have the Home button after the search bar or the refresh button between the address bar and search bar. Please add these features. I really want to switch to Vivaldi because of Chrome Addons but i can't switch if i can't fully customize the buttons. Please make the following image possible for Vivaldi. Thanx.

    Firefox Toolbar and hopefully soon to be possible in Vivaldi Browsers.



  • @GST firefox has decades of developement and 100x the devs Vivaldi has. It has just started, it will become better in time.

    i wasn't trying to belittle Vivaldi. I just threw a screenshot out there to make developers aware of how the final goal in this regard could look like. For now i am still using firefox. I have tried all the browsers out there and Vivaldi is the only browser i would see as a true alternative to Firefox. Chrome is not an option at all for me (!) mainly because of privacy concerns.



  • @iAN-CooG Vivaldi hasn't just started, the browser is over 4 years old. And of course Firefox has more developers, it's open source. Vivaldi doesn't make it easy for outsiders to contribute.

    I meant the toolbar customization, it went live just today. Jeez. 🙂



  • @iAN-CooG 😛
    But the feature is several months in the making. I'm not a developer, but I don't see a reason why the toolbar droptarget elements couldn't have been spread out over all of the address bar and status bar to begin with – with one obvious problem being that you currently cannot drop on an empty droptarget, but I believe this should be easy to fix.
