Search suggestion & auto complete not working
Hi all, Not sure if this should go in this forum but I have only experienced this on my mac (macbook pro) since I don't have a windows machine. I have the latest vivaldi stavble version installed and checked all the boxes in the preferences in the search section to enable the suggestion and auto complete but this is not working. Entering something in the address/search bar or in any fields (for instance an email field) does not bring back any result. I have used vivaldi for about a month now and each time I need to fill in a form with email, name, etc I have to retype everything. The most frustrating part is for search where nothing is suggested like Chrome. for info the default search engine in vivaldi is google. Any suggestion?
Search suggestion does already work for DuckDuckGo, Bing, and Wikipedia, but it is unfortunately not yet implemented for Google and Yahoo. Hopefully, that will change soon.
As far as I can tell, Vivaldi has not yet implemented a native GUI for autofill, but if you go to chrome://settings/search#autofill you can click on the "Manage Autofill settings" link at the end of the "Enable Autofill to fill out web forms…" option, and there you can add addresses that Vivaldi will use to autofill forms for you from there on.
