Periodic tab reload – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2056.19



  • @BoneTone Thanks, I missed that one. I don't really understand why 60 seconds would be the minimum, though.

    Using a HEAD request for changes in the document probably does not work with all these non-static sites, so I get why this may not be implemented.

    EDIT: periodic reload 10 also seems to be working just fine for the first time, but then it stops?!



  • @cqoicebordel: Nope - only for the first reload, than it ether breaks or reloads every 60s. It is an alarms API limitation and there are good reasons for it. Shorter intervals should not be set by that API but "set interval" instead.
    I know that at least one Extension in the store can switch between "alarms" and "interval".
    In my personal extension I only used interval, the extra load was negligible (i.e. <1%)



  • Uh, oh, primary selection (→ copy) seems to be broken completely, not only for pasting.

    Interestingly, it works if using the keyboard to select text.

    Uhm, now it’s bugged clipit 😞

    No - its Copy still works here, only my Paste remains ex-parroty..



  • @Steffie True, it just seems I have to kill clipit coz the bug seems to be there (though I have no idea what’s changed…)

    Edit: seems to have something to do w/ Gdk

    Yet another victim of this nasty ZA.
    🧟 🧟♂ 🧟♀



  • @pathduck: I can't go to properties on taskbar shortcuts.

    Invisible icons are gone after restart. But still it opens new shortcut. I unpinned old shortcut again, and pinned new one. Now seems fine, till new restart, I suppose.

    Of course you can. Right click:

  • 👌Winaero reports about "Vivaldi has the function to automatically reload tabs".

  • I use the periodic reload when I'm really waiting for something (ie: an announcement on a website). 1 minute is too long in this case. Could you add a 30 seconds and a 5 seconds options?



  • @pathduck: Sorry, I didn't know that. Here is the target: "D:\Vivaldi Snapshot\Application\vivaldi_proxy.exe" --profile-directory=Default

    I can't unpin invisible shortcuts because they are not pinned. And now they are gone after restart.



  • I consider the VB-72407 bug I reported (similar to VB-72202) as fixed. Thank you for your support.



  • VB-71985 aka crash on Linux on startup is still there 😞



  • O M G ! Periodic Tab Reload! 😍😍😍
    A long missed feature from the Old Opera finally arrives in Vivaldi. Thank you so much Vivaldi people!
    But please do not forget the No-Tab Users, like me, who use only the Window Panel. Can you please make the Periodic Tab Reload also available there? Thanks a lot in advance 😘

    I'm unable to find the debug version: following the steps https://help.vivaldi.com/article/reporting-crashes-on-linux/ I'm trying to download the binary but obviously either I'm using wrong version string or the file is simply not there:

  • @AndreyL you don't put the version number in the wget request. Use https://vivaldi.com/download/vivaldi-latest-x86_64-debug.zip instead.



  • @BoneTone : sure I need, quote: "Snapshot users will need to adjust the download URL, replacing “latest” with the full version number—go to “vivaldi://about” to find this."
    Kind of funny, that crash report asks to go to "About" but I canÄt even start the browser to find it's right version 🙂



  • @AndreyL Well then simply go to your package manager to get the Snapshot version details... but pls do not ignore the valid advice from @BoneTone [just copy & paste ... for Stable].



  • @Steffie : it is what I've already did, but there is not such version on the downloads!
