We have released Snapshot 1.0.330.3 - Trash folder for bookmarks and notes, plus panel hiding

  • Vivaldi Team

    Hi y'all, Today's snapshot adds a trash folder to bookmarks and notes, and added the ability to show which panels to display. We also fixed a handful of long-standing bugs, some highlights being adding the missing Up (stop loading) mouse gesture and giving you the chance to clear your closed tabs list. We also upgraded Chromium to 47. https://vivaldi.net/en-US/teamblog/68-snapshot-1-0-330-3-bookmarks-trash-folder-and-panel-hiding //Christian - Vivaldi Technologies - Take your browser back!

  • Ever since this update (and not fixed in the latest snapshot either), background tabs are no longer rendering. My setup is:

    Vivaldi	1.0.334.3 (Beta) (64-bit)

    Variations	16e0dd70-3f4a17df

    What happens: when I start up Vivaldi, the last visited page loads. All other background tabs (with the corner gone) will stay blank white and not load when I go to that tab. I can't hit the refresh button (because that is greyed out). Hitting F5 doesn't work either.
    Am I the only one with this issue? :S

  • You can work around the blank Tabs and some Tab crashes with three of the Experiments/flags and the "Startup with Last Session" option in Vivaldi Settings:

    [ [b]Enable ] #enable-offline-auto-reload
    [ [b]Enable ] #enable-offline-auto-reload-visible-only
    [ [b]Disable ] #enable-plugin-power-saver

    When the Tabs crash or otherwise don't work correctly, close and restart Vivaldi.
    Blank/crashed Tabs (and some Tabs you thought you got rid of) will load because you've bypassed the Lazy-load feature.

    Tabs that stopped working because the Power Saver feature kicked in should work and keep working.

    For me, the Soundcloud page stopped working and turned translucent ghost-white but the audio kept playing as it worked its way through a few songs on the Playlist before I shut it down and restarted Vivaldi.

  • Nope! No matter what I do, if I have background tabs at all, they will quickly crash/not load(?).

    Can only use a single tab at a time with restarting Vivaldi.

  • I clicked away from this tab to test again and had to restart Vivaldi to get back here. Here is what I see generally:

    Then after clicking a couple of tabs and going back, I now see this instead:
