Its funny how small differences in work flow give different output. If you select then use Go to vivaldi://settings/passwords from the right click menu you are taken to the correct page but copy and paste does not work for some reason.

I wonder if it would be possible for someone to comment on the upcoming changes to Chromium which see it disabling ad-blockers. This is a big minus for all Chromium-based browsers. This leaves those of us using such browsers with two options - hosts files or switching browser to something Firefox-related. It may sound drastic to change browsers over something like this, but ad-blockers are one of the things which make the web usable.

I'm by no means technically qualified to provide an adequate comment, but as an end Vivaldi user (for some reason I had much more luck with Vivaldi's developer tools than with Firefox/Chromium ones), but if this "innovation" of Google makes it into Vivaldi, I'll prefer to abandon it in a blink of an eye and go back to cringe in pain using the clumsy developer tools of Firefox.

Well I think we will have to wait and see how involved it is and how this develops. We are after all a small team but I have not a single doubt that we would try.
We are of course discussing this internally but it is early days.

+1 if adbloc is removed from Vivaldi, or if "clean filters" ala microsoft concept are inserted by Google into chromium code, I will stop using chromium based browsers altogether. The INTERNET (post DARPA) was originally designed for all users to exchange ideas, not just the key providers biased agenda. I wonder if anyone remembers that mind thought, with any bias, is the end of freedom. As it is Google has monetized the Internet more than it should be. I started using the internet when it was gopher and host files for the great sites. I can go back to that if necessary. Cheers

All --

I posted a question on the Vivaldi Linux Forums: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/3416...of-libreoffice

I posted the Q in the Linux Forum but there were a lot of Windows-Only Solutions and ultimately, the only solution is to change my Global mimetypes file.

Not gonna do it.

So I'll ask here ...

My job is mostly Data Conversions and many times I'll get .csv files or I need to connect to a link to grab a .csv file.

Unfortunately for those of use that don't consider a .csv file to be a Spreadsheet, Microsoft does so that means for all intents and purposes, a .csv file IS an Excel File.

So vivaldi graciously opens the file on my system with Alien Bob's Libreoffice Calc.

And if the content of a column looks like a number, then it is a number and I lose all my leading zeros which are essential -- they wouldn't be there if they weren't important.

Is there a secret option in Vivaldi where I can create a LOCAL mimetypes file ?

Maybe an option to associate file types with an Application ?

And I am not sure I have been given the entire story.

Check this out: http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/peo...ompat32-tools/

Alien Bob's Directory is chock full of shell scripts.

Vivaldi will happily open scripts in the browser that don't have a .sh ext. Example: http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/peo...ols.SlackBuild

But it will NOT open the ones that do have a .sh extent.

When I click [Open] in the Javascript Dialog, Vivaldi tells me that it's too dangerous. Example: http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/peo...ssconvert32.sh

All I want to do is look at the script in the browser -- I would never RUN a remote script which is what Vivaldi seems to interpret as [Open] ...

I can do this in Firefox or PaleMoon -- I set the Application to gvim for .csv files and for .sh files and then I click the 'Always Ask' Box.

Has anyone cracked this nut ?

Maybe a LOCAL mimetypes file like mozilla (used to) have and like PalMoon still does have ?

Thanks.

CSV (Comma Separated Values) has been an exchange format for spreadsheets and databases since at least the 1980's (I know that dBase, Lotus 1-2-3 as well as SuperCalc supported it).
So it's long been recognized before MS Excel even existed.

Expansion: in .csv files, things with quotes around it are TEXT strings, values without those are numbers (which in spreadsheets often are stored in binary). So
Code:
...,01.10, denotes the NUMBER 1.1, but
...,"01.10", is a text string, with pre- and post-fix zeroes
In databases this may be different, you may try to associate .csv files with LibreOffice base instead of calc. Haven't tested that, though.

Well, I just gave Firefox a good old college try and found it to be unstable and wanting in features I use with Google Chrome. Soooo, it is time to give Vivaldi at least equal time for a good shake down. I have to admit that Vivaldi is growing on me. Maybe it will win me over

ehartman --

Yes, exactly. I've been exchanging Data.csv Files since the 80's ( before there was an Excel )

My Problem is exactly the opposite.

I DO NOT want Vivaldi to automatically open Data.csv Files in LibreOffice ( it does do that ).

As you said, not all CSV Files are Spreadsheets.

In my case, NONE of my CSV Files are Spreadsheets.

I want Vivaldi to open them in the browser, or better yet allow me to configure Vvaldi to open the file with gvim ( FireFox and PaleMoon both allow for this ).

Apparently the only way to do this in Vivaldi is to change my GLOBAL MimeTypes File.

Then I would like to look at Script.sh files in Vivaldi.

But when I try to open any .sh file, that means 'EXECUTE' ( inherited from Windows, I am afraid ).

I NEVER want to RUN a .sh file ( or any other Executable ) from within the browser, again inherited from Windows which is why Windows has always been a virus magnet.

Anyhow ... enough with my ranting.

If Vivaldi would fix this design flaw ( no LOCAL MimeType File ), it would be PERFECT for my needs.

Congrats to Vivaldi for coming third equal in the LQ awards this year. Great work!

The percentages look a bit confusing when all listed, so here's a pie chart. One can easily see how Vivaldi's slice is a lot bigger than most.

Thanks. Jeremy posted the pie charts as well (https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/2018mca.php)

Is there any way to get Vivaldi to simply use the system theme? I generally like how it looks, but on the other hand it does kind of ruin the uniformity of everything else.
