Any trick to remove speed dial "+" button from empty Speed Dial page?



  • In the preferences, [i]Start Page[/i], there is a setting [i]Show "+" Button[/i] that can be turned off. Unfortunately for a few months already it only works if you have at least one speed dial item. If you have no speed dial, the "+" is always shown, regardless of the setting. I have reported this bug several times, but it's either not considered important, or not considered to be a bug at all, or simply not considered :P Is there any trick I can do to hide it? I do not use speed dial, and I don't want the "+" button to get in the way of my background image.

    Seems that option is not available yet.



  • If you do not use speed dial, what purpose does a background image serve? You might as well hit Windows Key + D and show your desktop if you want to hide your currently viewed web page.



  • How about renaming or removing the + image at:
    C:\Users_YOUR NAME_\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application\1.0.303.52\resources\vivaldi\resources

    I'm no techy and know little about how things work but it's what I'd try if I didn't like it that much. If it doesn't work put it back to how it was. It'll return with each new update I expect but between times it might not show.

    The background image serves my pleasure and comfort :) Which means it serves my well being and productivity ;)
    I want to see the background image on new tab, all other browser UI still on screen.
    I don't really want speed dial, Opera enforces speed dial on me, that's why I look for ways to get rid of it.
    Even if you remove the whole speed dial container, which should mean "speed dial was removed", you still see the "+" button, see the screenshot:

    Or I can replace the image with a transparent one :)
    Thanks, I'll play with that :)

    You don't have to open a new tab at all. Just open bookmarks from the bookmarks bar (middle-click to open in a new background tab), or right-click in your bookmarks panel, or use the URL drop list, Trash can, etc.

    Start up with your HomePage, which can be as pretty and soothing as you like.

    Instead of Opening a new tab, then opening the page that you want, just open the page that you want directly.

    If all you want to do is look at a picture, open the picture. You could even add the picture to your bookmarks and use it as your home page.

    Add this to your custom.css.

    .dial.add {
      display: none !important;
    }

    @Kein: Go to Start Page in settings and uncheck it.

    Sure, show me the option that is responsible for it.

    @Kein: Menu/Tools/Settings/ (or click the little gear at the bottom of the side panel) Start Page/Speed Dial/Speed Dial Layout -> uncheck "Show 'Add' button."

    @Kein: You still have the add button? What version number are you using?

    @Ayespy - Oh - Nevermind. You're talking about the BAR. That's best left to the CSS wizards. It's not a browser feature yet.

    There we go, only needed few letters to know what to display non.
    Thanks.

    Do you by any chance know a moderately simple way to decrease margin between speddial tabs without redoing whole speeddial stuff? I have default zoom set to 150% so the space between speeddials pretty massive.
