Themes and Panels – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2493.3
My request was posted after an Option to change number of tabs shown in Closed Tabs menu was tagged as DONE, because the list of 100 closed tabs was too long to be useful IMO.
Obviously, the best option is to let users choose how many closed tabs to display, or to hide the trash can completely by setting it to zero, which would be good for the privacy conscious.
setting it to zero for the privacy conscious
you can do that via Menu Customization already by deleting the [All Closed Tabs] entry.
12th auto update worked first load
I like that Firefox just recently decided to do a slight update to their basic theming system while Vivaldi is outdoing something that was already outdoing what Firefox had. That's why I love Vivaldi, focusing on making the browser truly customizable for people willing to dig in the browser settings rather than being as palatable to the most general of general public as possible.
@npro Maybe the trash should have 2 levels? First level shows only 25 last closed tabs (or any other value choosen by the user). The "Show more" entry opens the second level of the list, which is scrollable and shows the rest of the tabs. Something like:
@mozzer Unnecessary extra work for nothing, you could have further entries of the same forum or similar amount of closed tabs from another website, that wouldn't change anything other than putting that extra work-annoyance hover-over -wait- move mouse again to it. And your monitor height would be your limiter anyway in both cases, or you put the 2nd-list next to the current one, side-by-side.
One should not be getting a crippled, useless list fixed to 25 entries, just because I don't know how many use a 15.6" laptop with a scale of 200% and are not in a position to see more, or they don't like scrolling. I should pay the price for their choice of having lack of monitor height?
The only way to not butcher the usability, ergonomy and productivity of it is either to revert it to as it was before the regression, a custom predefined number in the Settings for everyone, or at the very least "fit to monitor height", if devs have definitely decided that they don't like scrolling anymore, not 25 entries.
I think it is bad design choice , having to scroll to top to edit current theme. each theme should have edit button, just like the speed dials.
new themes design is still lagging here. what about you?
there is another thing I wanted to say for quite some time.
deleting a bunch of older and useless autofill entries on webpages is a pain. *add cross button to each entry * like in address bar. (like sum entires on bugreport page)
Vivaldi Team might not know all major browsers have this now.
deleting a bunch of older and useless autofill entries on webpages is a pain
one little issue in the recent ~3 snapshots is that in every new window (including the initial one), has the ad blocker button (or whatever’s first in the address field) focused instead of the page.
- focus page content on new tab: enabled
- new tab page: start page (though,… does that matter? afaik new windows have it anyway)
damn. cannot spot the other magic switch; ie., cannot reproduce so easily in a new profile.
Can anyone confirm that
Ctrl+zdoes not work for undoing more than the last character / changed word any more when composing a new mail?
@gif2d Oh, but...
Life is so confusing!
Anyone else having problems opening Discord?
Edit: it might've been something with Discord (although when I posted this, it was working in Vivaldi Stable, but getting stuck at the logo in Vivaldi Snapshot) - it seems to be working again.
@pesala its lengthy, that is the whole point.
1.scroll to first entry using down arrow, press Shift+Delete.
repeat above step six times until all 6 results disappear.
( why? why should it not scroll to next entry when I have deleted current one?)
- now you must click outside the box and re-focus the box again.
only then another 6 result appear.
wouldn't it be much easier if we had address bar like x button to delete entries.
@juanvase I find that the keyboard is faster than the mouse, even though you have to use two shortcuts to delete each entry. There is no need to click outside the entry field, just do down cursor I am not saying we should not have an x button for those who want it, but it can already be done fairly easily.
The best bug:
Vivaldi browser can't load Vivaldi forum.
Sometimes. But anyway. It should never happen.
I was waiting for 5 minutes to be sure that it is not related to network glitches.
It wasn't possible to scroll page, to interact with it.
Browser used ~0% of CPU and ~0% of disk resources.
After 5 mins of waiting I pressed F5. Nothing happened.
Then I pressed "Stop" button. Nothing happened too.
Only closing tab and opening it again allowed me to load forum correctly.
The best bug:
Cunning that. Introduce a bug that no one can complain about
@killchain No issues so far, except reloading sometimes…
Saving private sessions is still broken and UI has bigger and bigger problems with responsiveness in last snapshots...
4.4line there is also a huge problem with stability of long running Vivaldi instances.
After a few days UI is choking to the point when I am unable to close tabs. Content of the websites works fine but UI is getting unresponsive.
From this moment from my 5 windows only one has half-working UI. It looks like Vivaldi is cycling which window is "active" through time.
But in this "active" window I am unable to:
- access the main menu
- use "take a break" button
- edit URL
- long press next/previous buttons
- close tabs
- open new tabs
- going back to start page via "back" button
4.2& below Vivaldi used to crash - now it looks like kind of a semi-hang.
Looks like memory leak or overflow somewhere...
Fixed session saving would be a lifesaver and a workaround for problems like this
