  • @OlgaA , I have liked Vivaldi Android since the first beta and it is close to perfection for a mobile browser.
    But I still have to mention a small shortcoming: Posting in forums or social networks, it becomes very difficult to write longer texts, since on smaller screens the keyboard covers the last lines of the text, since there is no ability to scroll text while typing.



  • To view websites in dark mode, enable Dark mode for Web Pages in Settings > Appearance > Themes. Is it possible to get this at the first screen when you press the Vivaldi button to open options? I would think a lot of people like me use this a lot, and it's not so convenient to have to do so many steps just for this.



  • @space670 , I suppose they can put the option more accessible, although I think most of us use the Dark Mode permanently and only deactivate it occasionally in a very few pages where it does not have a good result. And then having it one or two clicks away is quite irrelevant.
    It is possible that it will be changed in the future, although I think that since it is not such an urgent modification, it will not be a priority either in the development.



  • Well, I'm glad to have the customization down, all I need to do now is figure out how to import my bookmarks and passwords from Chrome. Can anyone help me, please???

    Hi, it is not possible to import on Android devices.
    The only way is to use the sync feature. If one of your other devices had sync enabled at any time all bookmarks and passwords are stored on the Vivaldi server.
    You can also use Chrome export to create a .cvs file (human readable), create a .html file copy it to a Lin/WIN or OSX device, import .cvs, .html and start sync.

    Cheers, mib

    That's because you enable "Hide Status Bar" in Vivaldi or device settings (CyanogenOS have this, global).
    And this is Android glitch not Vivaldi (or any other apps). If you don't believe me, make a note with any app that have a feature to hide status bar.



  • How can I disable tab accent color on Android. It's really annoying.

    Hi,
    Welcome to Vivaldi's Forums!

    If not mistaken, to use the Dark Theme is the only way.

    You can check on Suggestions Subforum and open a new Topic if this one does not exist.
