Adding search (via right-click)



  • When I do so, a window pops up, but when trying to save the settings (exact addrees, keyword, etc) it, nothing happens. Also in the options, there is Tools > Settings > Search, but there is a blank field only. Am I right, that adding a search engines is [b][i]not yet possible?[/i][/b] Best Wishes



  • You can add search engines - Tools > Settings > Search > Add New Search Engine but they don't appear in the right-click menu yet.
    Context Menu Search works meanwhile.



  • They dont appear in the context menu yet. Thats not implemented (and known issue) at this time, but will come.

    No Sir, that is not possible. Under Tools > Settings > Search there is a blank page only.
    That's with Vivaldi 1.0.228.3, 32bit, Win7.
    Thank you.

    I think, it's a misunderstanding. I don't look for search engines to choose from, but for the ability to add them, at all. I am fine with using address bar with keywords. But using address bar for search isn't possible, either.
    Great to hear it will also be choosable from context menu.
    Thank you.

    Strange, using Win 8.1, in my case all Vivaldi versions so far:

    Try with a clean install, something got corrupt on your profile. That's common when using Technical Previews or nightlies. Programmers are more concerned on changing stuff and forget about migrating/converting old settings to new.

    You are right. A fresh install did it. Then I moved some of the old profile data I want to keep- bam the blank-search-field issue is back. I guess, I have to figure it out file by file. Thank you :-) !
