Option: Force Reload Web Panel when (re-)opening
on Reddit the user csehszlovakze has posted a suggestion for a feature, which makes sense to me, so I want to submit it this way in the official forum.
The point is that panels should be reset automatically when they are reopened. Since this makes sense for some tabs (weather, news, ...) and not for others (WhatsApp, static pages, ...) this should be added as an option of this panel.
It would be nice if you could add this option in a next update. With this option, the browser should simply do exactly what it does when you click on the Home icon in the Webpanel tab.
@Runamaus Thanks for sharing your request. It's a nice one indeed.
Also welcome to our community.
See you around
Sounds like a useful feature. You get my upvote.
The option could be integrated into the menu where you can decide for mobile website or panel width.
I was surprised that this didn't work already, since aren't web panels just web pages, and aren't web pages subject to the state of "Lazy Load Restored Tabs"? But if that's unchecked, web panels are still in the lazy load state (i.e. not loaded).
Sure, these aren't tabs, exactly, but it's a distinction without much of a difference. Ideally, I guess, there should be a separate "Lazy Load Restored Web Panels" option for more versatility, but in the meantime it would have been nice if the existing setting pertained to web panels.
Any updates on whether this feature will ever come up? It'd be extremely useful for password management extensions and a webpanel sounds like a great place for bitwarden to live in, for example
I love this suggestion
Hi, you can do this already, disable Lazy Load in vivaldi://settings/panel/
@mib2berlin Hi! Thanks for your advice
Lazy-loading panels doesn't work for what I intend to do. I want the panel to reload every time I open it, so that I can have bitwarden running on a panel. For example, if I open the BW Panel on reddit, I get the reddit login. If I then switch tabs and re-open the BW panel it will not reload and I have to force it to reload so it shows the correct login information.
Hm, then it should be enabled.
If I enable lazy load my Keep panel reload evry time I change to it:
I am sorry I cant test this, I don´t have a Reddit account nor Bitwarden.
@mib2berlin I think that's a different thing, though I can't be sure... that's Keep syncing/reloading your notes, and is, as far as I know, not dependent on Vivaldi. At least I think so
Here's an example:
BW panel when writing this post:
If I switch tabs, close and reopen the panel, the BW panel still shows me the same outputs as for the Vivaldi Forums site:
I expected to see this, with my google accounts there:
