I had the same exact problem and it was making me mad. Your post led me to figure out how to fix the Dark Reader toggle in Vivaldi so it works with a hot key the way it should.
Go into vivaldi://extensions/
Click the Hamburger bar next to Extensions.
Click on Keyboard Shortcuts.
After you do that change the 'Toggle Current Site' button to GLOBAL instead of VIVALDI
That made the hotkey work for me! I can now toggle/untoggle with ease!
I'd like to add that I'm having the same issue. I cannot get the Dark Reader keyboard shortcut to work to either toggle the entire extension, or to toggle the individual site. Keyboard shortcuts from some other extensions do function properly for me.
I have tried setting new key combinations (in case the default was reserved somewhere else), but no luck.
Thanks for considering this!
Edit: I found that setting the keyboard shortcut to "global" under the extension options got this to function just fine! It you have it set to "Vivaldi" only, it doesn't seem to work well, but hey, I'm happy.
Ah, too bad the Global setting captures the shortcut globally, so the same shortcut stops working in other browsers
I'm not comfortable having to set different shortcut for the same thing in multiple browsers.
People have been reporting this issue for over 5 years already, seems Vivaldi just decided is not high enough priority to fix it - https://forum.vivaldi.net/search?term=extensions keyboard shortcuts&in=titlesposts&matchWords=all&sortBy=relevance&sortDirection=desc&showAs=posts
I have the same problem but your post guide me and I solved my problem. Thank you.
