Searching fails "occasionally often"
I am experiencing a rather irritating problem when entering a search term directly into either the URL field or Search field in the browser header (when already viewing a web page) . The search 'result' simply reloads the page I am currently viewing. This does not happen every time but happens often enough that I can replicate it with 4-5 test searches. I have also checked that this is not an auto-complete problem. I am currently using Google as default with search suggestions turned off. Everything else works well, it's just this issue that is proving difficult to ignore. When I then enter the same term again it all works as one would expect.
It works fine with me......
Try using a different search engine.....
It seems to prefer me to use Bing. No issues with that. How much do I really want to use Bing? No that much to be honest.
What is really odd is that it does the same on both my work and home machine I installed Vivaldi on both machines on the same day so I am not sure whether there is something with the build I installed that has become a ghost in the machine even after upgrading. Should maybe uninstall and try again but that is a pain.
Do you use the snapshot version or the stable version?
You could install the one that you aren't using right now and test it out…..
Try testing it first via the standalone version; then if it works, you can upgrade....
Thought I had installed the snapshot when I checked the version number but my current version 1.0.435.42 seems to be the one associated with the 1.0 for Windows link. I will give the snapshot a try and see if that helps. Thanks for the suggestion.
The update to the snapshot seems to have cured the problem No more grinding my teeth, thanks muchly
