Vivaldi steals focus, prevent alt-tabbing to other applications



  • Hi, I've been using Vivaldi beta for some time now and I've become very attached to it. So first, I want to thank again the developers for their excellent work. Thank you! :kiss: Since updating recently I've noticed that Vivaldi is a little too keen to steal focus when I am alt-tabbing between applications. It is very noticeable for me - if I have Vivaldi open and alt-tab to another application (e.g. MS word), Vivaldi will many times (but not always) steal the focus and pop out in front (when it should have been word) I have observed this consistently since the update (1.0.435.42 (32-bit)), and on 2 windows laptops, one running Windows 7 and the other Windows 10. Same behaviour in both. Not a showstopper for me, but I felt it was worth mentioning as I have not experienced it in the betas. It just seems odd. Have others encountered this? I'm not very technically minded but if there are specific details I can provide I will try to get them to you. Kind thanks again - Vivaldi FTW!, stim

    Yes, i reported this ugly focus stealing bug.

    I see that the Developers are working on a fix. I hope the upcomin' Snapshot will fix.



  • Great, thanks!



  • Is there a bug tracker we can see? I'll add to this, Vivaldi not only steals focus, but also raises itself frequently and unexpectedly, especially if focus has just been granted and taken away. Likely related to X-Mouse being set on this machine (my rules being that the application under the mouse cursor receives focus with a 20 ms delay, but isn't raised). For me, this could be a dealbreaker, and I loved Opera and am otherwise loving Vivaldi.

    No, the tracker is not for the public.

    Please be so kind report and describe clearly this issue as a bug at https:/7vvialdi.com/bugreport/
