[Bug\VB-17759] Authentication required: Login dialog in wrong tab when opening in background



  • Hi, I found problem with authentication on sites/links, that are opened in background. Basically login dialog "[b]Authentication required[/b]" is displayed right away on source tab. Not on tab that login is bounded to. This problem can be tested on [b]Start Page[/b] or just any page that has link to site that needs authentication. Then after opening link in background dialog is displayed in wrong tab. This is not an issue in Chromium. Also I've got suggestion to use some specific indicator for sites with authentication. I mean use something similar to option [b]Use unread indicators[/b] for this kind of tabs. Maybe some key icon near unread indicator, or just use another color for unread indicator? Please take a look at it. Thank you in advance.

    Thats is already reported as a bug VB-17759 "Authentication required: Login dialog in wrong tab (current) when opening in background"

    What do you want? That the login mask does not appear visible?
    In Chromium the login mask is tied to tab and if you dont switch to this tab the page load indicator is circulating.



  • Hi,

    I want Vivaldi to act the same way that Chromium does. To display login "popup" on tab it's bounded to only after I move there.
    Also in my Chromium version spinning wheel / loading indicator stopped(at least on page i tested). So it looks similar to other tabs, and basically I don't know if I need to login first without indicator. But indicator suggestion is just nice to have, but not such big deal because I know this pages.
    And for sure, if some users find current behavior as better to suits them, maybe make this optional. To suit us all.

    Also it has another impact on usage with KeePass, as it works on current tab, which in this case is not correct (tab link is problem).

    Thank you for VB update. From name I can confirm it is mine. Also maybe other suggestion. When I enter report a new bug (https://vivaldi.com/bugreport/), it would be nice to return ID of this bug after submit. Then I can add it here, or be able to track it easier at least when new Vivaldi version is released.

    Tabs + Auth:
    Yes, would be nice to have as Chrome has.
    But the browser interface is different in Chrome. In Vivaldi it is HTML and Javascript generated by react.
    May be the implementation is less easy in Vivaldi. I'll ask some developers.

    Bugreport page:
    You should get back a mail with the reported bug.
    The feature for the bugtracker is reported by me VB-17772 "Show VB-XXXX bug number and Summary for reported bug in response page"
    //EDIT: this would be a major improvement in bugtracker as two Vivaldi admins told me minutes ago, but that can not be done wuickly and easyly and other projects are more important at this time. Sorry to say.
    So lets hope to get it in some month ;)
    I think in meantime you can live with the automatic mail from the bugtracker showing the bug number.

    As i am part of the Vivaldi tester team, i need to know what a user wants and needs.
    For Vivaldi users we try to interact and communicate as good as we can and have spare time.
    Vivaldi is for Users. ;)



  • Sure, and for all of that, thank to all of you (guys and gals :))!
