Bookmarks issues


  • Vivaldi Translator

    I'm experiencing some issues related to Bookmarks. The first range of issues is related to clicking bookmarks with left mouse button (LMB), middle mouse button MMB)or right mouse button (RMB). In a regular web page, LMB-click a link and the page is opened in the current tab, MMB-click opens a new background tab and RMB-click pops up a menu. The same counts for all my bookmarks in the Bookmarks panel. The same counts for level 1 bookmarks on the bookmarks bar. But my bookmarks bar also contains folders and subfolders, and in there life is somewhat different. The LMB-click opens in the current tab, the MMB-click does nothing and the RMB-click also opens the current tab. Another issue is related to Xmarks bookmark synchronisation across different browsers: Google Chrome, IE, and Firefox. Following [url=http://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/vivaldi-browser/4527-xmarks-extension/]this discussion thread[/url] I managed to get my bookmarks in a compatible structure. But somehow, somewhere my bookmarks folder structure is being messed up where my bookmarks bar will be filled with a large range of folders that really should have been placed one hierarchy deeper. Until now, the only way to solve things is to perform a Xmarks restore to a previous bookmarks set, and this several times a day on several browsers. Maybe something more needs to be done to make my bookmarks structure more compatible across browsers, or something is actually messing things up? I would like to understand where Vivaldi stores its bookmarks so that I can try and watch what may be happening, and would it help if I'd make that available to the development team for review or experimentation?

    I may have found the answer to the second issue where the Xmarks bookmarks synchronisation goes wrong.
    After writing down above problem description, I decided to examine the bookmarks structures in V, FF, GC and IE more closely. I found that the favourites in IE (also synced through Xmarks) contained a subfolder "Bookmarks bar" within "Bookmarks bar". In other words, one of my Bookmarks folders had received a reserved name. After renaming this subfolder in IE, I haven't experienced any messing up of my Bookmarks anymore. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

    Xmarks cross browser tip: Considering different bookmarks structures and requirements across browsers, for each different browser that you use, check the synchronisation results for possible errors and inconsistencies, and try to find a common solution.

    The path to the bookmarks file on Windows is C:\users{user}\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default. The file Bookmarks looks like this in an editor:

    ! ```
    {
    "checksum": "f3de834d7e9932bf9f3f78b0532d9ee7",
    "roots": {
