Why only Vivaldi breaks HTML words instead of a straight line.

  • My example code works fine in all other browsers except Vivaldi even tho it uses Chromium.

    https://jsfiddle.net/saudiqbal/v6nkz5wb/5/ Hit the RUN button to execute the code.

    I see a complete popup bar in all the browsers except Vivaldi which breaks the line into multiple lines.

  • Can you specify a window size somehow? I guess that would help.
    Other than that, please see below that should work everywhere.

    text: "Quick brown fox jumps right over the lazy dog.",

  • I could use that code but all the other browsers works fine except Vivaldi which is built on Chromium.

  • I have tried the code with old IE and there is no break (yet). My assumption is, that there is a default window size somehow and that is taken. Why it doesn't only work with Vivaldi as one would expect, I don't know. As I am working mostly with Mainframe Computers I have no further detail knowledge unfortunately.

    Have you tried to use the Debugger to see the defaults used? That could give some clue.

    @saudiqbal I can confirm the issue using the default code.
    Now if I add @kahukura "string", works like a charm.

  • When you view the code there is some interception by fiddle. It could be related.

        // tell the embed parent frame the height of the content
        if (window.parent && window.parent.parent){
          window.parent.parent.postMessage(["resultsFrame", {
            height: document.body.getBoundingClientRect().height,
            slug: ""
          }], "*")
        // always overwrite window.name, in case users try to set it manually
        window.name = "result"

    Chrome 76 and Vivaldi 2.7 break the sentence on word boundaries. Both have the same results.
    And Word breaking depends on frame size with this JS lib.

    In FullScreen (F11) the popup is often shown horizontal like in 2.6, but sometimes after reloads smaller like in 2.7.

    //EDIT: In regular window Vivaldi 2.8, Opera 63 and Chromium 78.0.3866.0 act same after reloads. Small popup, sometimes the wider one.

    It works fine on latest Stable only on one condition: to use our friend @kahukura solution.
