menu bar entries do not open on mouse over (was: tool bar)



  • Up on the top (I'll call it the Toolbar) where File / Edit / View / Bookmarks / Tools / Window / Help are shown.
    Let's say I click on File and what's there shows up under File. I'm wondering why it is that as one slides the mouse over to Edit, everything under Edit doesn't show up unless one clicks on it.
    At the top of this forum page, where Features / Download / News etc is, if one hovers the mouse over those, they automatically open up. Shouldn't this be a feature added to Vivaldi itself? Or is there a way to get this Browser to actually do that?

    According to Vivaldi It's called Main Menu:)

    I can not reproduce it. Hovering the mouse over any option displays the menu



  • Hovering the mouse over it here does nothing. If I click on File for example, it will display everything there is under File. But moving the mouse over to Edit, nothing happens other than the File continues to display its contents. To open up Edit and see its contents, I have to click on Edit. That you are not experiencing that, tells me there is something weird on this machine or in the setup maybe that's causing that. Any ideas?



  • Your initial post explains clearly what you are experiencing. It's not working as it should.

    Unfortunately, I don't have the answers you need.

    An ibm advisor told me: "Never guess, check first"
    Sorry for the issue



  • Seeing your whole post, I have to edit. So you are saying then, it is an issue, correct? Who do we report this to or is there anyone to report it to since it is opened source?



  • You reported an unusual behavior regarding to the Main Menus. I could not reproduce.

    @Andoheb said in tool bar:

    Who do we report this

    You can file a bug report, you will be giving a number (VB-xxxxxxx), please, post the number here for our follow up.

    Btw: Vivaldi is not Open Source



  • That you cannot reproduce it is strange from my perspective, for I just downloaded it onto another computer and have the same problem.
    Thank you kindly though for the link.
    As to Vivaldi being open source, that of course is a mistake on my part. I thought I had read that somewhere but obviously I am wrong. I shall indeed post the number up here for you to follow up. Thanks so much for your help.



  • Reference VB-53820

    It's important to delete all Vivaldi folders before reinstalling. Why? The new install will inherit data from the previous installation.

    Not really. Vivaldi uses some Open Sources software:)

    @Andoheb said in tool bar:

    Thanks so much for your help.

    You are welcome.

    Thanks for the VB number. Now the Devs will analyze it.

    Cheers



  • I hadn't reinstalled Vivaldi on this system but on another computer where it had not been installed before. Sorry for the confusion.



  • No probs. Thx for the feedback.



  • @Andoheb This is a very old issue, and not a bug strictly speaking. It just has not been implemented yet to behave like most programs' menu bar.

    Vote for Pull Down Menus on Hover

    You can avoid the problem by turning off the menu bar. Selection of menus works as expected on the Browser Button menu.



  • @Pesala It works fine on Linux for ages.



  • @lamarca Maybe so, but this thread is in the Windows forum.



  • @Pesala The most important is the user issue. Besides, Vivaldi is multi platform, which allows you to help a Linux user.

    But why does not it work for me? Are you sure you use horizontal menu when trying to reproduce this?



  • @potmeklecbohdan said in tool bar:

    The horizontal menu displays all the options in a row.
    I always used the V menu
    Do the math:)


    Horizontal
