Touch not working on most websites since the final version



  • Hi everyone, as someone with a Windows laptop with a touchscreen, I tend to use this feature quite a lot. Between the last beta and the final version of Vivaldi, however, touch doesn't work anymore on most(!) websites. I did an upgrade from said beta (which in turn was probably just an upgrade installation from the very first beta) and haven't tried reinstalling Vivaldi yet, but that's probably what I'm going to do next. The UI still works perfectly fine and all "Vivaldi-generated" websites do as well. However, if I e.g. visit [url=https://vivaldi.net]vivaldi.net[/url], no touch gestures will work. Neither touching on links nor scrolling. [url=http://www.derstandard.at]derstandard.at[/url] is an example of a website that still works just as before. I can't really find any pattern of websites that do or do not work, except for the fact that the latter seems to be more common. The touch flag is set to "enabled", but it works the same when set to "Automatic". Any idea what could be the reason for this?



  • yes, I have same problem here….
    the touch screen is not working at all in most sites.. please fix this problem, vivaldi team.....

  • I have exact the same problem

  • I have a partial fix / detailed error description, maybe if you have the same problem, try if that "works" for you as well:

    On a page where touch doesn't work, "grab" the tab with your finger and slide it a bit forwards and backwards. It doesn't matter if you rearrange its position, just move it a bit. Touch should now work on that tab as long as you don't change to another tab.

    That's very weird behaviour, but it works, at least for me (Surface Pro 4 / Win 10).



  • same issue here on a W8.1 Dell and your fix works ! thank you very much !



  • The tab jiggle trick works for me on Surface Pro 3 with Win 10 fast ring.

    Thanks, this works! (Surface Pro 3)



  • Same problem as well on the Surface Pro 4. I even troubleshooted with different touch flags, no luck. Having to "shake" a tab in order to gain touch control of a page is annoying to say the least (especially when the tab sometimes doesn't respond to touch either). I was very excited to learn of this browser today, however realizing it doesn't properly respond to touch is quite disappointing. I will return to Chrome for the time being as it is very responsive, I just wish it had proper vertical tabs like Vivaldi has. :/
