Remove home button?



  • Hi; The home button serves no purpose if you just resume from the last browsing session. All it does is serve as a big ad for vivaldi dot com. Can we have an option to remove it?

    In Menu/Settings/Startup you can set it to go to whatever page on the web you would like. You can even direct it to open Speed Dial by setting it to chrome://dummystartpage.

    For now, however, it can't be removed. That option will come in time.

    Actually it can be removed:

    .button-toolbar.home { display: none }
    

    See this topic for details: https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/all/3073-vivaldi-ui-customisations



  • Thanks, both of you. Good to hear it will come in time. I'll see if I can use the custom CSS trick in the meantime.



  • Thanks guys! I tried the CSS trick, and it worked. I'll keep this up until the feature to remove the home button comes.



  • For Linux users (I'm on kUbuntu 16.04.1):

    Vivaldi deb installs in /opt so paths to files to edit are
    /opt/vivaldi/resources/vivaldi/style/common.css
    and
    /opt/vivaldi/resources/vivaldi/browser.html

    Option with common.css didn't work for me but browser.html editing did it.
    Hope this will help someone.
