    They removed nothing. It's a part of the proprietary VIvaldi UI, and has to be written from scratch. It is not inherited from Chromium.

    It existed in every version of Vivaldi I'd used until recently (apparently the last version with it was 2.8.1664.44). It doesn't exist in versions after that. If they didn't remove it, who did?

    ... Sorry, I disagree. Its a bug. It was and has been a function of every major browser forever. The developers in their incredible lack of wisdom decided to remove a core function that has been around forever. ... I am giving it another month and if its not fixed, I will be moving on and forgetting about vivaldi. I have lost all faith in this crew and feel there is no security or stability and these guys are just living on a limb hoping nothing bad happens.

    Au contraire, a bug is an unintended error in coding and its resultant functional operation. You can't have it both ways: it can't be a bug and yet also be the 'result of a decision to remove' the function. Moreover, it's already been explained that the code involved has been (and continues to be) written from scratch, since it's part of Vivaldi's own user interface... they're not directly using that part of chromium.

    The functionality you describe may be simple to mentally conceive, but that does not necessarily translate into simplicity of actual coding when one has to take into account how all the other interconnected parts of the address box and related elements of the UI operate... all in code that is still being evolved. In that evolution, sometimes a behavioral/functional detail that exists at one point in time interferes with other seemingly unrelated functions and coding that are necessary to include, so for a while that detail of functionality must be abandoned or altered until a more harmonious 'whole' can be developed. It doesn't just involve some simple 'call' to a small code routine that exists in a vacuum with respect to all the other related functionality in the UI.

    I'm sorry if the function is so important to you that you feel it may be necessary to abandon the many other unique features of the browser, but many of the rest of us realize that Vivaldi remains a remarkable work in progress with many other priorities and issues presented to a limited cast of developers.

    @scotta The address bar is in the process of a re-write. It's not done. During the process, things may come and go. Regressions should be reported to the bug tracker. In this case, during the re-write, it was reported, reported in duplicate twenty-three more times, and is now fixed (as of yesterday) in an internal build which is currently being tested.

    Well, that is awesome. Hopefully it will make it into the next build for either beta or master. Thank you for that update.

    apology accepted 🙂 For me, I do not really use any of the other features. I mainly switched from chrome to viv due to memory usage on chrome.

  • Happy to report that this issue has been fixed in version 2.10.1745.7. Be aware that you have to enable the option in the settings dialog (under the address bar section).

    Thank you, Vivaldi devs.

    @datdinhquoc 2.10 is available on the blog, in the Snapshots section. It is at Release Candidate 2. Soon, it will graduate to Stable, and the main public version will be updated to 2.10.

    If you update stable installation to a Snapshot, it will convert your install to Snapshot, and you will get Snapshot updates thereafter. If you install the Snapshot as a standalone, then you will have a Stable instance on your machine and a Snapshot instance, and each will update to the next version of its own stream, ongoing.

    I can update vivaldi to 2.10 now. It works after enable Ctrl+Enter in Settings>>Address Bar

    Works in 2.10 Stable now.
    Please update.

    I tag this thread as Fixed.



  • Hi,

    After enabling the feature in settings, it doesn't work, though it doesn't seem as fast as the previous iteration. When this started, i was patient but moved back to Firefox about a month ago. Given this fix hasn't restored functionality to how it was prior (the www takes a few seconds), i don't think i will come back to Vivaldi, which is a shame as I've used it since the 0.x beta days when Arstechnica did an article on it.

    Thanks for all the fish!

    @sidewaysjack A lot more code must still be written in order to optimize the function. Although the "fix" has been released, it's partial, and developers are aware they are not done with this. There is still much discussion over it.



  • 2.11 and CTRL+Enter is still broken for me. Please fix.



  • @dmhayes6 you have to enable the feature in settings/address bar/domain expansion



  • @iAN-CooG
    Thank you for pointing out where to solve this issue. Your answer's been a time saver



  • Thanks for fixing this, working with 2.11.1811.38



  • Brand new install in Windows 10 1909, Vivaldi 2.11.1811.49 (Stable channel) (64-bit).

    No Ctrl+Enter functionality except to take you to the search engine. I'm assuming Vivaldi gets revenue from the search engine.

    Uninstalled.

    @kavlito You misuderstood this feature! Ctrl+Return adds the top level domain f.ex. com and was never assumed to start a search.
