Problem opening links when browser is in full screen mode.



  • No, this one:

    (VB-19516) Vivaldi dont get focus when URL was clicked on another application on another space in osx

    Vivaldi dont get focus when URL was clicked on another application on another space in osx

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Set Vivali as default browser
    2. Move Vivaldi to space 1
    3. Move Mail to space 2 (or another app that has clickable urls)
    4. Click in some url in Mail

    Expected behaviour:
    New tab should be opened and user should be switched to vivaldi and to space 1

    Actual behaviour:
    New tab was opened but user was not switched to space 1 - it looks like it nothing happend - you click on link and nothing is happening - you later manually switch to space 1 and see that indeed new tab was opened.



  • I just replied to a new post about this very symptom. As a new Vivaldi user myself, I have to say it's a bit disappointing to see that this problem has extant for at least a year, now. My tests show that it's not just a full screen mode issue, however, it happens even in windowed mode, should your browser not be on your first desktop.



  • Can confirm the same. Exactly as @SDSD described. Vivaldi 1.12.955.38 on OS X Sierra 10.12.6. Just discoverd Vivaldi and love it, but I'm a heavy user of multiple spaces and can't have my browser not activated from external links.

    The priority of bug 19516 was increased some days ago.
    May be they work on a fix, as i know there will be some changes in next Snapshot (can not say more).
