Can't open in background tab from Speed Dial + a Speed Dial and Auto Complete suggestion



  • I can no longer open any links in a background tab from Speed Dial, neither via opening with middle-click nor by hitting right-click and then open in background tab. A tab does open, but it's completely blank, no url in the address bar, no progress of any sort, only thing available is the "home" button. Interestingly though this only seems to affect sites that are directly opened via the Speed Dial, you can still middle-click on a folder of sites and it will open those up just fine. Just something broken with opening individual sites from Speed Dial. On top of that I have two suggestions for functionality: 1) In Speed Dial it'd be really damn great if you could drag and drop a website into a folder. Like if you start collecting links onto a page of Speed Dial and later decide to organize those into a single folder it'd be very nice if you could drag them there, instead of having to create them again and deleting the previous ones. 2) For autocomplete, I'm constantly struggling with it filling in addresses that are deep deep into the website. Like for example when I want to go to www.website.com, it suggests www.website.com/2015/01/test/example/harblls/010101.hml, and it stays there until I remove it. So if I want to go to the home page of that website, I have to write it out fully, then hit delete to get rid of the rest of the url, and only then can I hit enter to actually go there. This often makes the autocomplete not just useless, but aggravatingly annoying by getting in the way of going where I want to go. So my suggestion: If you write something into the address bar, and auto complete suggests something, that suggestion is ONLY applied if you hit the right arrow on the keyboard (or click to the end of the address with your mouse, or something), so that you don't have to actively remove the extra stuff from the end. Even better would be if autocomplete first suggested the root address on any given URL, so when I write www.web it'd suggest www.website.com first and only if I accept that would it go further. But at least make it stop forcing the suggestion on me unless otherwise instructed.

    This a regression (bug) introduced with Snapshot 1.1.453.6
    If you use right-click Open in New Tab or Shift-Click (i.e. to open in foreground) then you also get a blank page. However, the url is in the address bar so the site can be loaded AFTER clicking in the address bar and pressing enter.

    Will be fixed in next Final.
