More fixes and another minor Chromium bump – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2088.7

  • @other Thanks for the explanation. I don't use most of these so I can try disabling them and see how it goes.

  • Not sure if it's this snapshot, or just a coincidence, but I downloaded the update late last night and today, four times, when I closed the single open tab, it closes the tab leaving no tabs and clicking the + that normally opens a new tab doesn't work. I have to close Vivaldi and re-open it. It doesn't happen every time I close the single open tab, but so far it has happened four times.

  • @other Thank you so much for the explanation! 👍

    For now I've disabled everything but the Web Store and PDF Viewer.

    Silly you can't have screen sharing in Hangouts without an extra component, when others like Whereby do it "natively". Unless you'd need this component for sharing there as well?

  • @wpcoe I've not seen that exact issue, but there's a known bug already in latest snap with closing the last tab. I'm pretty sure they're aware of this one as well, but if you're able to find a way to consistently reproduce the issue then please report it.

  • a bug: creating new tab always opens last even if preference is set after active

    Edit: argh! I should be more careful, it's already been reported. Consider this a confirmation then and sorry for the duplicate report.

  • @vulture or ask a mod to close the duplicate, which make the things faster 🙂

  • I think this is a new issue with this snapshot:

    Closing a tab while a fullscreen video is playing results in the Vivaldi UI being hidden.

    I tested while playing a YouTube video. Clicked the YouTube video fullscreen playback button. Then closed the tab while the video was playing in fullscreen using a mouse gesture.

  • @ugly oh don't think that, this is as old as 🙊 😁

    block that user/spambot

    Yet another similarly excellent post / thread appeared a few minutes ago. Ergo:
    Broken & shattered.


  • A squahed bug sadly has reincarnated with this Snapshot 3.5.2088.7 / Chrome 86.0.4240.112. Bwaaaaah.

    Summary: Searx POST unavailable/defective from Search Field.
    Key: VB-68138
    Project: Vivaldi Browser

    Environment: Vivaldi version: 3.1.1929.3
    Operating System: Linux x86.64
    Device model:
    User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/83.0.4103.75 Safari/537.36 Vivaldi/3.1.1929.3

    Searx POST unavailable/defective from Search Field.

    Unlike the original manifestation of this bug, now it afflicts more than only Searx POST. Even other search engines are misbehaving; losing my search text & just delivering their default landing pages [when set to POST; they still work ok in GET].

    I confirmed this also with my Test profile [no extensions or hooks active].

    Stable continues to work correctly in this regard.

    PS: All the above applies only to the primary Search tab setting for Always Search in New Tab being enabled; when it's disabled, correct outcomes still arise [but this is no good because this obliterates the active tab's current contents with the search result].

    @Steffie I confirmed your reported bug for current internal 3.5.2090.x Daily.

  • @Gwen-Dragon Vielen dank Lilo. Fwiw, though it might be redundant, five hours ago immediately after i made my post here, i replied to the bug-report email i had received back when i first reported it. In my new email today i mentioned what i wrote here, with a link to my post. So, hopefully i've given the Devs enough info to be able to investigate.

  • @ugly: yes, same-ish here. Only, for me, the behaviour is more consistent. No matter what the last active tab was, whenever I close the active tab, it sets me back to the first in order (left most).

  • @nutcracker said in More fixes and another minor Chromium bump – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2088.7:

    There are times that by closing the last tab I get a completely blank tab bar with only one "+" in the beginning.

    I have recieved mail about developers working on VB-48891 (if browser is working for a long time, then at exit, large CPU usage happens) and then this bug happened.
    Nice solution. If you can't use browser for a long time, then it will not be hanging anymore 😃 (that was a joke. but who knows)

  • @other Thanks. A little more clarification is needed on some, according to Google 🪦 Cloud Print is RIP-expected in 2 months, Hangouts in 8 months, so why now, is it meant just to opt-out for the remaining of their short lives or as a opt-in for some kind of support beyond their RIP status?

  • Wow, these crazy new [/temporary] tab open & close misbehaviours are really scrambling my brain bigtime. There's this constant cognitive dissonance - i can see in my rhs columnar tab layout where my active tab sits within all the open tabs, & thus "know" what's going to happen supposed to happen with each new close & link-open, only to be constantly thrown off balance when V does its crazy new thing. It'd not occurred to me before how such a "little" bug could keep unbalancing me. Am looking fwd to the next Snapshot to hopefully restore my tabs-sanity!

    🤪 🤯

  • When you try to til tabs using the Ctrl button, each time you click the second one while pressing the Ctrl button, it changes your tab to the previous in order (it may be related to a bug in reverse order of cards - - (this makes tilling tabs impossible with this method - selecting few tabs and choosing "til tabs")).

  • @Steffie Why do you use the tab bar then? For me it works almost as if the bug didn’t exist 😛

  • @potmeklecbohdan

    Why do you use the tab bar then?

    Um... erm... huh?
