Vivaldi and speed dials



  • I absolutely love Vivaldi. I am really enjoy the Chrome extension support (as it's basically Chromium under the hood) but apparently there's no way for an extension to control the new tab settings. I used an extension called "Speed Dial 2" in Chrome and I personally can't live without it so it's basically the only roadblock to my migrating to Vivaldi as browser of choice. I've tried linking the extension page directly to the new tab shortcut but it doesn't work. Is there any way to bring up my speed dial of choice when I hit the + button?



  • I'm using FVD as an alternative.

    It works, I have added it as home page and as tile on Vivaldi's SD



  • Does FVD open when you hit the + button?



  • @gbj1301:

    Does FVD open when you hit the + button?

    No.

    I believe you have to replace the string

    extension://mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli/components/startpage/startpage.html (which is the stock SD)

    with the one from FVD (or other working ones) in bundle.js and maybe other places.

    I didn't yet checked by myself if it works.



  • Ok.

    Tested and it works

    Just replace all the occourrences of

    chrome-extension://mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli/components/startpage/startpage.html

    with

    chrome-extension://llaficoajjainaijghjlofdfmbjpebpa/newtab.html

    in bundle.js

    To fully replace the stock SD with FVD speed dial.



  • Strange. I replace
    chrome-extension://mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli/components/startpage/startpage.html
    with
    chrome-extension://dlmmfcbpgflaeiipmbhelananakfcodj/index.html

    in bundle.js and it doesn't work. I am on linux and using the weekly snapshot, perhaps that is the problem?

    Before replacing the string you should check if the extension works properly.

    I remember I did some quick experiments with speeddial 2 and didn't work



  • Yes. I am using New Tab Plus. I guess that wont work with the bundle.js trick.



  • I tried FVD speed dial and that did not work either. I guess I will have to wait for a new version of vivialdi :)



  • I'll try on linux later, but feel strange that isn't working for you.



  • Thank you. Yes it does seem strange that it is not working. Perhaps I borked up the procedure somehow :unsure:



  • @The_Solutor Have you had any success with fvd or other speed dials in linux?



  • Sorry for the late reply, but yes, it worked perfectly.

    likely you used an editor that broke something, try a different one.



  • Finally worked, thank you. The problem lied with kate and line length limit :unsure:



  • You are welcome ! B)



  • Hello

    Here my topic in french for FVD Speed dial:
    https://vivaldi.net/forum/french/6424-extension-fvd-speed-dial

    I resume:
    It works, but impossible to synchronize.

    an alternative;
    http://topsites.me

    It's FVD SPEED DIAL on a webpage:



  • @CavalierLibre:

    I resume:
    It works, but impossible to synchronize.

    Manual screenshots aren't working either (never tried the sincronizzation).

    But, all in all, is a nice Speed Dial



  • @ The_Solutor

    How did you find the chrome-extension://mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli/components/startpage/startpage.html argument to put in bundle.js?

    I was thinking of trying other speed dials.



  • Usually looking at the url of the extension's option page is enough.

    If not just try look at the extension itself opening its relevant files with a text editor.

    (in the above case the extension folder is called mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli)



  • So with build 1.0.435.5 (Developer Build) dev (64-bit) the old trick of replacing chrome-extension://mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli/components/startpage/startpage.html with chrome-extension://jpfpebmajhhopeonhlcgidhclcccjcik/newtab.html in bundle.js no longer works :( Does anyone have any workarounds for that? If I change my bundle.js vivaldi simply fails to launch for some reason
