Where's the Wand (autofill) button)?



  • Where's the button to autofill username and password?



  • There is none, next time you visit the same page you ll see your username password already there, if you saved it.



  • Really? Didn't notice that. Will report again if it doesn't work again.

    As I've learnt, and confirmed by another, "Not all site log-ins will initially trigger Vivaldi's password-save option". This is why the Wand button is still a good idea.



  • BTW, if you want to manage your autofill settings, just type "chrome://settings/search#autofill" into the address bar (without quotation marks) and press enter; then click on "manage autofill settings" ;)

    Thanks. Two questions, though: Why isn't this feature available in the standard Vivaldi Settings window? Where would one find this information? (I don't see it, for example, at "vivaldi://about".)

    @vivabrowser - Vivaldi is unfinished. Not all settings functions have their own place in Vivaldi UI yet.

    Thanks. I'm still interested to know, though, what the best source(s) of info would be for users who are looking for info such as the "chrome://settings/search#autofill" URL mentioned above. This forum? Developer's blog?

    @vivabrowser - Not everything is documented yet - and certain menu items that will be coming to Vivaldi are not called out specifically as missing. They might never be, before they ARE included. However, much of what is not yet covered in the Help pages, IS covered at a site called Vivaldi Tips https://vivalditips.com . That is a user-supported site that was developed independently and is maintained independently, by some users who wanted to extend the available documentation for the browser while developers continue to work on the browser itself.



  • @Ayespy Thank you very much for your detailed, helpful reply.
