Reopen Settings Dialogue Opens it in a Tab



  • Is this a bug or a feature? [ol] [li]Open and close the settings dialogue[/li] [li]Reopen the last closed tab with a mouse gesture or Shortcut (Ctrl Shift T)[/li] [/ol] [b]Result:[/b] The settings dialogue opens in a tab. Snapshot 1.3.501.6 (Developer Build) (32-bit) on Windows 64-bit



  • For me, with Open Settings in a new Tab activated, the settings dialogue (re) opens in a tab.
    I believe this would not be a bug.

    With Open Settings in a new Tab NOT activated, the settings dialogue (re) opens in a tab in a new window.
    I believe the new window opening should be a bug (not sure whether opening in a tab is a bug or not).

  • I think it's a feature.
    You can set settings to open in a tab instead of window so it becomes normal tab and one would expect it to reopen as any other tab. Then, if you could reopen settings tab and couldn't reopen window it would be strange/unexpected.

    Open in Tab, yes I agree.

    But if NOT tab, not sure it should re-open as a New Vivaldi Window (normal browser window) - shouldn't it be the settings "floating pop-up"?



  • I reported it as a bug
