Drag & download is broken

  • Hello, Couldn't find a bug report for the following issue: Until a few versions ago, the feature "drag and download" (dragging a link outside the browser into a folder of my file system or onto my Desktop itself) resulted in the file the link pointed to (.pdf, .doc) being downloaded correctly) used to work fine, but recently the download have become corrupt, i.e. if I drag a link to a Word document onto my Desktop, only a certain number of bytes (apparently 18,6 KB (19.090 bytes)) are downloaded and the file becomes corrupt. Anyone else suffering from the same issue?

    Drag&Download to a folder never worked in Vivaldi as i remember.

  • I think it used to work, that's why I was so upset when it stopped working! 😞
