Snapshot 1.0.219.3 - A cleaner Speed Dial and lots of fixes!


  • Vivaldi Team

    Hi y'all, Before we dive right into some of the changes made in this week’s snapshot build, we thought we would spend a little bit time explaining our plan going forward. As our development continues on toward beta, we have added quite a few new features and made some significant changes to our products over the last two months, since TP3. Because many people around the world download Vivaldi browser TP3, a build available for public download from vivaldi.com, we thought it would be a good idea to release the another newer Technical preview based on the current snapshot code. As preparation for TP4, this snapshot focuses on mainly bug fixes, but sneaked in a few more customization options on Speed Dial!

  • I just tried to view my Gmail contacts with this version. A new tab opened, but https://contacts.google.com/preview/all didn't link across and just left a blank page.



  • Scroll icon after middle mouse click still does not show.

    And please add option to Tab Cycling Order so we have RMB+WheelUp to act as Ctrl+Shift+Tab, and RMB+WheelDown to act as Ctrl+Tab. Just as its in O12.

    Here, on Win 8.1, it worked just fine. What Windows version are you on - and do you have any extensions that could be interfering?

    @Sajadi:

    Still unable to deactivate address bar search in the options. Function to turn it off is ignored even when checked. No difference to last build.

    Maybe you need a clean build. Here, on 8.1, it works as expected.

    Edit: looking at that again, Where are you seeing "options?" And how/where does there seem to be a choice to disable search in address bar?



  • @Sajadi:

    Settings - Privacy - Disable search in address field

    Is a reported well konwn bug. Sorry, is not fixed yxet.



  • Bookmarks sidebar: bug with moving bookmark or folder

    !



  • I have Vivaldi running on 3 PCs and each exhibit the same problem.

    1 x Win 8.1 Pro running Vivaldi x64bit, 1 x Win 7 Pro running Vivaldi x64bit

    and 1 x Win 7 Pro x32 running the 32bit Vivaldi version.

    On the 64bit Win 8.1 and Win 7 PCs, I only have Chrome PDF Viewer, Adobe Flash Player, VLC Web plugin and Silverlight running.

    While the x32 PC is a basic setup, running a clean install of Vivaldi and a standard Gmail without any Gmail Lab extras and logged into a different email account.

    @Sajadi:

    Settings - Privacy - Disable search in address field

    Deleted my profile, trying a new one, function does not work. Having here Windows 8, 64 Bit

    You're right. Doesn't work. I mistook that you were talking about disabling the search field in the address bar.



  • Tabs D&D bug

    !

    Tabs settings:

    PS: Also bug in the search field.



  • Hi

    I have just loaded 1.0.219.3 onto my Win 7 64bit system.

    After reading the Blog I was looking forward to Vivaldi remembering what size I had set the UI. I changed the Ui size in settings but unfortunately instead of changing the size of the UI it seems to change the content size.

    Can't verify this on Win7 X86. It performs as expected. Are you using the 32-bit or 64-bit version?



  • I am using the 64bit version


  • Moderator

    Ah. Well, report the bug (I can't test for it as I don't use 64-bit because it's too memory-hungry and too unreliable) at https://vivaldi.com/bugreport and the developers will take a look at it.

    It works correctly for me in x64 version, too.



  • First of all keep up with the good work :)

    Here are few bugs I encounter:
    1. The little cut on the tab is visible only until the tab is activated (image attached), after that is never shown again.
    2. Browser not starting maximized.
    3. When trying to rearrange tabs it's bugs out and not allowing to close tab, make empty space and tab is non clickable

    4. Default page zoom not working properly (form settings - > user interface scale is set to 110%) but in order the page to be 110% and remember it I have to set it on the bottom right side to 110%, otherwise is still 100% on every new page I visit.

    Version: 1.0.219.3 (Developer Build) (64-bit)

    By the way great work with google chrome extensions they are working flawlessly :D

  • I think three versions ago Zoom setting work great, you could put the number you want in Settings and it would automatically reset every site you visit, but since then, on newer version it doesn't work. You need to manually adjust every site. Could you please fix that?



  • If I add one of my bookmarks to the Speed Dial it disappears from both the Bookmarks and the Bookmarks Bar.

    Is that By Design? It might be confusing to some.

    I have not seen this. But then, my Bookmarks, Bookmarks Bar and Speed Dial are all the same thing.



  • I have only one folder on my Bookmarks Bar for frequently used bookmarks.

    I moved a couple of even more frequently used bookmarks to the speed dial, and they no longer appear on the Bookmarks Bar drop folder menu, nor in Bookmarks.

    I can see the point of not duplicating bookmarks, but its not the same as Opera 12.17 where they can appear in all three places if you wish.
