[BUG] Handling of domain-less names in address bar broken



  • I use Vivaldi also for internal systems with URLs like http://foobar/baz . When I type foobar/baz directly into the address bar this will turn into a search; I kind of understand that, because it is not a clean URL - although old Opera gets it, Firefox does, Chrome doesn't. Ok, so I have to prefix http:// to make it clear and then it works. Now I want to change the URL directly, say, turn foobar into foobaz. Fail! Obviously, the address bar not only hides the ugly http:// prefix - which is a good thing - but it forgets about it when I start modifying the URL. So I'm forced to type http:// again. Not nice!



  • Disabling search inside the address bar solves this once and for all.

    Yes, disabling search in the address bar "solves" it, but that should not be necessary. This is a bug but close to a feature request as well :) Would be good with a bug report at: https://vivaldi.com/bugreport

    I'll keep an eye on it :)
