Mouse Gesture "New Tab" broken in Snapshot 1.0.249.12 ?



  • Just updated and the mouse gesture "open in new foreground tab" [RMB down] now opens the speeddial instead of the link. New context: Right click - "new tab" works fine though.



  • Changed - not broken :whistle:

    Now, context menu is "open in new (foreground tab)"
    Mouse Gesture is just "Open New Tab"

    Ctrl-Click is now "open in new (background tab)"

    Developers :P

    Edit guess this is result of
    [ul]

    • VB-8208 “Open in Background Tab” in context menu is in a wrong position
    • VB-3772 Ability to open links in background tab from context-menu
      [/ul]


  • In browser windows, Mouse middle click opens link in new background (!) tab, as used and wanted.

    Using the new snapshot, middle mouse button used in speed dial opens in new foreground tab, not background -> doesn't seem consistent… also wanted?

    Yes, even mouse gesture RMB Down/UP on Speeddial opens in foreground (instead of background).
    I guess the "fixes" had wider impact (or there are more in pipeline for next snapshot).



  • This mouse gesture is one I've ended up using all the time, so I'd love for this change to be fixed/reverted.



  • Me too, that's why I though it was broken rather than changed.
    Right click then left click seems so "old school".



  • Hi, i'm in the same case, my favorite's mouse gestures don't work anymore since 1.0.249.12 :(
    I upgraded to 1.0.252.3 yesterday and still don't work.

    I tried to deactivate mouse gestures, close vivaldi and open it again, then reactivate mouse gestures : no change.

    I miss so hard the open in background tab gesture !!!
    Please fix it dear vivaldi's team :)



  • @TbGbe: right click in speed dial doesn't even show "open in new background tab", only "open in new tab"



  • I know. I was referring to the mouse gesture!

    I've just upgraded to latest Snapshot 1.0.264.3
    Now "Open in New Tab" (context menu) on Speeddial does open in background.



  • Can confirm that - installed the update today, and it works :)

    But for every fix, there is a new bug… cycling via RMB + wheel cycles through empty screen without tab, doesn't happen with ctrl-tab...?



  • Tab cycling is not necessarily "new", more a work in progress.
    Have a look through https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/vivaldi-browser/4646-snapshot-1-0-257-3-visual-tab-cycler-and-better-cookie-management
    for example.



  • Well, maybe my description was a bit short ;)

    Tab cycling is enabled, visual cycling disabled, order doesn't matter. When actually cycling with RMB + wheel, I can switch through the different open tabs. At some place, it cycles not to a tab, but just shows an empty "non-tab"; as if there was an extra tab between two others which just has no input (not blank, not speed dial, empty = dark gray).

    Didn't notice this in previous versions…



  • I've seen discussions about that "blank non-tab", but can't remember/find them now.
    Might have been in descriptions of tab-stacking, tab pinning or maybe simply when there are multiple (more than 10) tabs open.

    Basically, I don't think it's new to this snapshot - but suspect that it has been bug reported and is being worked on. Bug wizard is closed though so can't confirm.
    Of course, I can't predict when a fix will be available.

    If it really concerns you - but don't expect any responses/update notifications and if you know how to report bugs, go here: vivaldi.com/bugreport/
