Mac delete key closes certain types of browser session



  • Hi In some Vivaldi browser sessions the delete key closes the session: Details: - When I access a site that hosts Microsoft Outlook Web access for exchange 2010, the session logs out as soon as I delete an email (delete key). I've learned to delete emails only with mouse right click. - When I remote into an server that presents an RDP session of HTML5 (via [url=http://soha.io]SoHa[/url] who use [url=http://guacamole.incubator.apache.org]guacamole [/url] as their backend) the same thing happens. The browser session closes completely as soon as I dare touch the delete key. Other browsers do not have this behavior on the same web pages. Vivaldi: 1.3.501.6 (Developer Build) (64-bit) Mac: Yosemite 10.10.5

    It sounds like "History Back" is erroneously triggered by the Backspace key on those pages.

    If you go to vivaldi://settings/keyboard/ (sorry, the forum software can't make this a link) and remove 'Backspace' as a shortcut from "History Back" in the Page section, does that stop the issue form occurring?

    IIRC, Chrome recently announced that they are going to remove Backspace as a default shortcut for history back, because it often causes accidental history back events for users. I think it would be a good idea if Vivaldi also removed it. If someone prefers Backspace as a shortcut for history back, it's trivially easy for them to add.



  • Hi

    You are completely correct, thank you for the help.
    I must say I could not at all find that keyboard shortcut until I did a search in the settings. But yes, removing history back keyboard shortcut was the fix I needed. Vivaldi is now usable. I would indeed suggest not using that setting by default.
