I am happy about every new update also because of the main photos in the blog post
@stardepp: The accent/Razer color issues were the most complained about. The image is a nod to that fix.
@Ruarí Lol. People cannot reliably edit the address bar. Complain about colouring. Now that's weird.
@jumpsq: It was only while the page was loading. Fast connection or wait and it works. I suspect many never even noticed it. Much less reports about that. Either way... they are both fixed now.

That is odd as they are playing perfectly now....i am so sorry to have bothered you with this .please consider it working now and my sincere apologies.
Fallback source of HTML Video does not play if proprietary Chromium codec (libffmpeg..so) is missing!
VB-56817 "[Linux] mp4 Video does not play / wrong video selected"
- Delete the libffmpegso in /var/opt/Vivaldi
- Open https://www.isnichwahr.de/r289313-sieh-her-chef-ich-mach-das-einfach-so.html
- Video does not play, but has a WebM video as fallback source!
- The driect link Webm at https://iserveyoumaster.isnichwahr.de/conversion/749c196d50c0d6ecfad60a2a341b09213da8e433/gif.webm plays
@priest72: It just required the restart. The codecs needed are installed in the background on first startup (if you are using a non-official install method). This is the issue you saw
@gwen-dragon: Restart once and it works
@gwen-dragon: Also why would you delete /var/opt/vivaldi? The report feels a bit like, I broke it and it broke.
@Ruarí My testcase wanted to prove the broken fallback, not a codec issue.
In the past i had broken codec updates andd i expected that fallbacks would work in Vivaldi HTML5.
@gwen-dragon: But you need to restart anyway. Because we don't fallback whilst the browser is running, i.e. we don't unload and then dynamically reload a new lib and we never have. It all happens on startup.
Testing it is tricky because the system I wrote to fix things is pretty aggressive in trying to correct broken codecs.
But you should be able to, like so:
- Shutdown Vivaldi and open a terminal
sudo rm -r ~/.local/lib/vivaldi /var/opt/vivaldi
You should then see this message in startup
Now only open codecs will play.
P.S. I tested the webm you linked and it works fine but on the example site it is not trying to load this because they specify h.264 first. That is something we have failed to handle well for an exceptionally long time on Linux. On the plus side a restart would, in the vast majority of cases, allow the h.264 version to load anyway... so not exactly the worst issue (nor is it in any way related to the changes in this update) but yes it is technically incorrect.

It seems like with the new private window theme, even if you have a window background image configured so it appears with your theme, if you select it as a private theme the private windows won't use the window background image. Someone pointed this out on the 3.3 release post, but no one replied. Is this a known issue?

VB-71391: Unfortunately not fixed here, while waiting for Resolving host... for example with
http://novalidsite, if you go to the end of the url and hold
Ctrl+A, Delto delete, the url is showing up again continually.
I think it was also reported that this happens as well with other protocols that try to open an application and you cancel it, for example:
P.S. Any progress with the flashbangs? VB-71409. The cat doesn't like it
Vivaldi 3.3.2022.45 / Chrome 85.0.4183.106

Thanks you could confirm broken the HTML5 standard in Vivaldi.
Thank you! However since this major version, I am unable to play most videos on my old Macbook Pro from 2011. It may be that the graphics chip is being blacklisted as old but it worked slightly better before 3.3.
