Broken image when opening in background tab via middle button/ctrl+left click
I've searched the forum and it seems no one has reported this one yet, not sure if it's just me? Using middle button to open an image in a new background tab is very important in my daily workflow but whenever I use the middle mouse button or ctrl+left click on any hyper-link that ends with .jpg/.png/.gif etc, the new background tab will only show a Chrome broken image icon. Everything goes back to normal with the image shown properly if I refresh the tab or if/after the linked image is already in my cache. If I have opened the image link with any option from the right click context menu, including "Open link in background tab", no problem will occurs. I've tried clearing my browsing data/private window and the problem persists. Any idea? P.S Can we get closing the last tab closes the window back?
Cant reproduce this with Vivaldi 1.0.390.3 32bit on Windows 10x64.
Ctrl+LMB on a URL to a picture works fine in background.
Thanks for the quick reply. I'm on 1.0.390.3 64bit on Windows 8.1x64.
Yes the problem does not always happen with every image, after some testing, seems like it can be isolated to the specific domain that host the image, links below are examples that's giving me the problem
But after some more testing, some pics on imgur are giving me problem but some are not. Very curious.
Also after an given image has successfully loaded, that link/image will never have any problem again. If I clear privacy data (image cache) then it comes back.

I can confirm the same issue with the latest snapshot (32-bit) on W10. I didn't bother to report the issue because I assumed I was the only one encountering it.
Ah with your URLs now, i see.
This is a already reported bug: VB-12831 "Large images not loaded in new tab"
Thanks a lot, hope this get fixed soon.
However not sure if this problem is limited to large images, the following link fails with a 9kb 300*169 image
I've also opened 30+mb super high res images without a problem.
Strange that this happens with small images.
I report that back to Dev Team.
That happens with links which are opened in a new tab with a target="_blank" HTML attribute.
Broken small/large image.
The problem seems to be resolved in the latest snapshot. Good job!
