Private Window Themes – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2022.6

    Furthermore, the new SS has now arrived in Arch. I have just finished updating my Arch VM [not yet my real Arch on Tower], & the new SS still launches again, still with en_AU.utf8, because i did that locale two-step the other day. As i said, i did explicitly document this in the forum.

    Yes, your "two-step" works for those who do it (and remember the vital "second step")!

    The "known problems" solution from @Ruarí is a "one-step" for those who didn't do it!

    I would read his replies to you as additional information and not any form of rebuke; just a caution for others.



  • @luetage Business people have a right to advertise and the web is very much a big platform for that..I don't mind well placed ads on a page but pop-ups are a big no-no...but i use an adblocker to cut out the majority of the sludge.



  • @Ruarí Yet there is no progress bar to indicate the status so if you restart to early the update fails. Even if there is no update the auto update seems to break that menu option as it does nothing even when you are updated.

    @sjudenim: The contrast in your theme is very low to begin with, and that propagates to the other colors. You'll need to increase the brightness of the Foreground color to fix this. But the first screenshots you shared does not look like Vivaldi at tall - is it a different browser, or just heavily modified Vivaldi?

    I don't use high contrast or bright colours at night, it's harder on the eyes. I certainly can't be the only one?...

    I've been using this to compensate on darker themes

    .UrlFragment-Wrapper--ShouldHighlight {
      --HighlightColor: var(--colorFgIntense);
      --LowlightColor: var(--colorFgFaded);
    }
    

    but because of the calculation being made for the variables, I run into the issue on light themes where the domain is lighter
    and less emphasized.

    This is the calculation result on a white(ish) theme
    --colorBg: hsl(180deg 8% 97%);
    --colorFg: hsl(208deg 8% 47%);
    --colorFgAlpha: hsl(208deg 8% 47% / 10%);
    --colorFgIntense: hsl(208deg 9% 61%);
    --colorFgFaded: hsl(207deg 10% 34%);
    --colorFgFadedMore: hsl(208deg 15% 22%);
    --colorFgFadedMost: hsl(208deg 17% 20%);

    The contrast between the bg and fg is sufficient, but rather than being faded (lightened), the fg is being darkened.



  • "Highlighting the base domain"
    This is a very nice improvement, thank you!

    Hilighting base domain should be in bold letters!
    Currently the URL has not very good contrast for older guyz 👴and galz 👵 and people with sight problems. 👓

    Contrast should follow the rules of WCAG for better Accessibility. #ally #webstandards
    Is this unfixed bug: VB-69508 "Contrast too low for URL parts in address field"



  • @Gwen-Dragon said in Private Window Themes – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2022.6:

    @saudiqbal This rule fails for you? I remember this block full domain was introduced in Vivaldi:
    ||example.com^$document

    I just tried it and it is not working, uploaded it onto my server

    ! Title: Private Filters
    ! Expires: 7 days
    ||facebook.com^$document
    

    Update: looks like it is working in beta and not in stable. I ll wait for the stable to be updated.

    @saudiqbal This rule for blocking-all It was as i correctly remember introduced only in a 3.3 Snapshot!

    Completely agree 👍
    Vivaldi should dare to be different and not copy-cat what other browsers do just because some obscure research has told Chromium developers that us poor users are "confused" by complicated URLs.

    This is what I have now, maybe it's useful:
    dac4f667-f465-42e8-8b67-e523c4924001-image.png

    /* URL Bar no lowlight */
    .UrlFragment-Wrapper {
    	color: unset;
    }
    /* URL Bar scheme part */
    .UrlFragment--Lowlight:first-of-type {
    	color: var(--colorFgFaded);
    }
    
    /* URL Bar host part  */
    .UrlFragment-HostFragment-Subdomain, .UrlFragment-HostFragment-Basedomain, .UrlFragment-HostFragment-TLD {
    	color: unset !important;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }

    @Pathduck Nice patch.

    But such should be active if in Settings > Appearance the WCAG setting is active.



  • This is not the case with Ubuntu

    Bug : open the Address Bar Settings and under Address Field Drop-Down Menu tick Include Browser History
    Close and reopen the settings,the setting is deselected.
    Confirm?
    Reported: VB-71166



  • @claudio Noticed that too when I messed around today, but the bug is only visual, the setting still sticks.



  • Now it's time to go one step further and add the ability to set a theme for different websites. 😃



  • Last several snapshots changed how they render background colour on pages that don't have it set – previously it was always white, now Vivaldi seems to take the colour from my OS settings. Unfortunately this makes a lot of pages unreadable, since I use a dark high contrast theme in Windows, which sets background to (nearly) black, and Vivaldi does not use the Windows text colour for text (but that'd only help on pages that set neither background, nor text colours, and there's unfortunately a lot of pages that do set text to black while ignoring the background).

    Here's a minimal sample page, and this is how it renders for me in 3.3.2022.6:

    Interesting, I was facing the opposite problems when I once tried to set default colour scheme in FF to dark bg & light text…



  • This setting seems to be present since the previous snapshot, but isn’t mentioned in the changelogs: vivaldi.quick_commands.use_notes_manager.

    Regarding the private window theme, will we get the possibility to just keep it the same as in normal windows?

    Unless I misunderstand your question, that is already the case.



  • @Ayespy Now when you change the normal theme you also have to manually change the one in private windows, I just want the single change to affect both.


  • Moderator

    @potmeklecbohdan Well, that would not seem to be an option at present.



  • Icing on the cake for me would be the ability to use firefox personas with vivaldi..Chrome themes are not in the same league as mozilla's.
