Sometimes browser refreshes the current page instead of going to different page



  • I can't really compress the problem to few words so sorry for the long subject. Anyways the issue is that sometimes I'm on some web page. I click on the address bar and type something like vivaldi or whatever and the browser autofills the rest of the address (to https://vivaldi.net for example). Then I just press enter but instead of going to the chosen site the browser just reloads the current page. Has this happened to anyone else? First I thought I was misclicking or pressing something else except my enter button on my keyboard but I'm pretty sure I'm not. It seems to happen inconsistently and not very often.



  • I wasn't able to reproduce this with a quick test:

    I typed "vivaldi" in the URL, which autofilled vivaldi.com, and pressed enter. It worked as expected.



  • Probably the same bug as in this thread:

    No solution yet, though.



  • This has been affecting me too, particularly when I paste a new address. First time I often remain on the same page but second time the new page opens.

    I have also seen this. It also happens sometimes on clicking a bookmark. Instead of going to the bookmark, either NOTHING happens, or the current page refreshes. And this is on the newest snapshot, 1.1.443.3.

    It is not about typing the vivaldi in the address bar not working but more commonly that sometimes when you try to go to a different page the vivaldi just reloads the current page.

    This happens very often, it's frustrating. And I thought Vivaldi 1.0 final could finally be my main browser :S

    Well, that's what I meant. When I press Enter it does go to a new page.

    95% of the time, it does for me, too. But sometimes, not.



  • Yup, this happened to me a ton of times as well.



  • I wonder if it's any better in the latest snapshot?

    • Better transition for Ctrl+Enter (www..com) in URL field
