Stabilization starts for 2.5 – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1525.30



  • It looks like every update is getting worse and worse.



  • Confirmation dialogs in private windows are missing 😞 [VB-52558]



  • @ian-coog: +1



  • Duplicated extensions icons. Windows 10

  • @gwen-dragon: to fix, just disable the extension, restart browser, then renable it again



  • This is weird, Show Tab Cycler was set after update but it wasn't before.



  • This is something that got fixed: manually updating uBlock Origin from github, by packing it as crx and dragging to the extensions page, and then reimporting the saved settings, in previous snapshots always crashed the extension (visibly the extension icon disappeared from the extensions space in address bar) and it had to be re-enabled in vivaldi://extensions/
    Now it worked flawlessly.
    Also, the icon doesn't dis/appear anymore by changing the extension setting details like Allow access to file urls, Collect Errors, etc.

    Good.



  • @ruario Excellent news, looking forward to the resize of Speed Dial tiles reaching stable soon and all the other stuff. Also I'd like to thank you guys and Jon for your constant awesome work, I recently checked most of the other Chromium-based browsers (on 74) and they all were blinking, flashing white to the point of causing epilepsy or were extremely slow, when opening new Speed Dial/startpage/empty tabs. Except for Vivaldi of course, the browser with the best and most solid experience! 💕

    And next time you restart, you'll have to do it again. The actual trick is you have to toggle all extensions twice every time you restart Vivaldi.

    Add Active Tab is at the bottom of the Bookmark Bar Folders. There is a space for it at the top and a separator.

    Accessibility Issue: Access Key A no longer works if any item in the folder already uses A for its access key.

    (VB-52566) Add Active Tab Should be at the Top of the Folder menu

  • Shift-Del to delete typed entries still not possible in both address field and search field dropdowns.
    Also the mouse movement in address field drop down still doesn't move the highlight when the mouse pointer is over the "X" rightmost column, making the deletion of multiple lines very awkward.

    Finally! However, extensions still move out of their place when changing one of the options.

    Edit
    Extension popups are still broken. How has this not been fixed yet?

    In the gif that I posted:

    1. I click on the leftmost icon first. It opens normally, then I click it again to close it.
    2. I then click on the middle extension and it opens normally, but then I click again, and it does not close (the popup flickers).
    3. I do the same for the rightmost icon, and it does the same as the middle icon.
    4. Finally, I click on the leftmost icon again, and rather than showing its popup, it closes the popup of the rightmost icon.

    Thank you - I thought I was stuck with that mess...
    EDIT; Nope, back after another restart... who the **** thought that was a good idea? 😠



  • "[Regression] Download “save as” and “open” just save in default location VB-51913"

    Thanks for the fix, but unfortunately for me on this version "save as"/"save image as" always save on default download location. It never shows the save as dialog.



  • Aside the nasty extensions regression showing in the address bar (all of them without a selection to hide, even in the extension bar section) I observe that the Speed dial tiles went back to plain "edgy" parallelograms. A true disaster!

    confirmed on Win7x64 Vx64

    confirmed, fixing one problem had it transfered to the save as context menu options which previously worked.



  • @ian-coog: Then you should stay away from Snapshots and stick to stable releases.



  • @olli Don't lecture me on what I should do or not. I'm always on snapshots since 1.0 3 years ago because I like to follow the developments and report the bugs whenever I can, but I know (I'm a SW dev myself) when a broken release shouldn't be presented to clients.



  • @ian-coog: But you are free to lecture them on when they should release snapshots or not?
    The sole purpose of snapshots is to test out builds, and find bugs.
