BUG: Inactive Tab Stealing Focus

  • Apologies if someone has already mentioned this, was unable to find anything with search. I use Google Apps heavily at work and I've noticed an issue with Google Calendar popup notifications. When I have an upcoming meeting my calendar will pop up a notification that there's a meeting soon. I'm usually not on my calendar tab when this happens and all of the sudden I'm unable to interact with the tab I have open. I can't click on anything or type in any inputs. My browser's focus is being stolen by the popup in my calendar tab but the browser doesn't automatically switch to that tab, so it just appears like everything has stopped working. My expected behavior would be to have Vivaldi switch the active tab to the one which has just gained focus, as other browsers do.

  • Just bumping this as it happens to me just about every single work day. Very bothersome.
