Blocked sites information – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1862.3



  • @derDay For the moment a manual check is the only way.
    Making "browsable" the blocked elements would nice, I agree.



  • @Pesala,
    there's nothing to retest, what for?!
    ctrl+shift+B clearly and unquestionably indicates what is meant. That's all it needs. Then call it 'bookmarks bar' or whatever (are more of a semantic quibble). What was meant is "ctrl+shift+B". As written.
    and that is reproducibly broken. An unnecessary bug, actually.

    ps: bookmark-bar is useful for e.g. fixed bookmarks that are called over and over again, test page(s) or IP or weather as you like.

    Firstly, so that you know what we're talking about, and secondly so that we know what you're experiencing, which you think is a bug. It is not a semantic quibble. If you use the wrong terminology it will only lead to confusion.

    Ctrl+Shift+B is the default shortcut to open the Bookmarks Tab. Unless you have set Vivaldi to Startup with Last Session, one would not expect the Bookmarks Tab to reopen on restart. It is by design, not a bug at all.

    There is no default shortcut for the Bookmarks Panel. I have assigned Ctrl+1.

  • Is there a way to use "file://" URLs for our own lists in the content blocker?
    I tried one file but failed to "download" it - but still added it to the list with a "not downloaded" state.

    I assume such a file would use the standard Adblock rules?

    @Pathduck Currently not implemented. You need to use the folder button to open a filter list file.

    If you think your problem can be solved by a missing feature, please read how to make such request at Feature Requests forum and add a request.



  • @Gwen-Dragon Thanks! Apparently, once again I'm bloody blind, I didn't notice the file button 😆

    But my excuse is it seems to be bugged here, it shows as blank white:

    So I guess I should report that one, seems it uses the "foreground" theme colour for the folder SVG.

    @Pathduck Yes, i have this too, but i did not test dark theme when telling you about the button, sorry.

    Please report to bug tracker!



  • @derDay My interpretation is that with the dark grey shaded shield icon (your upper window), the site itself hasn't finished loading and once that's completed you'll get the "flash shield" icon with the tracking protection detailed (your lower window).
    That only seems to work with absolutely new sites, once the site is in cache the dark grey shaded icon doesn't appear anymore.



  • @frommhold
    perhaps it's a combination from both things. When I took the screenshot, the upper window had the website open since minutes.
    As mentioned (and you too) , sometimes I get the flashed shield immediately at new websites

    I think, I wait for a further snapshot and see, how the blocker/icon behave then

    Incorrect. Ctrl+B is the default shortcut for the Bookmarks Tab. Ctrl+Shift+B is the default shortcut for the Bookmarks Bar, just as @dremlon said.

    (Verified this in my translation install of Vivaldi, which is virtually untouched and only used for translating.)


  • Vivaldi Team

    @ornorm: This would happen if the page keeps trying to load the same blocked URL. It can be the result of a script making a request regularly, waiting for it to succeed. To make sure that this is not an issue with the blocked trackers counter, you can check that it matches what actually happens by looking at the page with devtools.


  • Vivaldi Team

    @derday: Hey, do you have any extensions installed?



  • @Komposten Thanks. I changed my defaults.

    All the more important to use the right terminology as shortcuts can be modified. @dremlon referred to the Bookmarks Panel, which has no default shortcut.

    As I said earlier, the Bookmarks Bar does not disappear on restarting. It was hiding when I updated to the latest Snapshot.



  • @julien_picalausa Thanks. I checked and I found indeed several attemps in the Console :

    I temporarily chose the "No Blocking" option to stop it and chose back "Block Trackers and Ads (Default)" and it stopped the attempts.



  • hey @Aronand
    yes, uBlock Origin for example (but more others too)



  • OMG, since when is this feature available?! absolut great! (fyi: Küche is my second vivaldi-profile 😁)

    30c8ba51-35b9-4a8c-a069-97e2a26f8a1e-image.png

    but it only shows up in menu, when the second profile is open. Please add support also for closed profile and guest profile (that would be marvelous)



  • I have a question, accidentally remove some ad blocker lists. how can I reset the list and get them back without losing my preferences? in sync page it says preferences (partially) so removing the browser completely and hoping it will sync properly it's not a good option I'm guessing?



  • @baris-sehri On right click where adblock lists are I see an option to reset them. (Tracker lists hasn't this option)

    Thanks for the headup. 🙂 Very cool. 😎

    So when I have 2 profiles active, I get "Open link as"> with list of all profiles, and I can open links in the second open profile.
    However if I try to launch a third profile to open link, both profiles crash. Is this a known bug?

  • @Hadden89 yes I found it! thanks a lot for the help 😊
