I think that it's not related...

Yes, this bug is fixed in 2.3.1440.57. The SlackBuild is in the pending queue.

I've been using Vivaldi pretty intensively this week at work and it's a really nice piece of software!
There are some interesting features like tab tiling, web panels (watch out: all sites are not ideal for that), reader view and tons of customizations.
I'm not saying that you cannot do this kind of things with some other browsers but I think you would need numerous add-ons. It's the overall quality of this ready to use browser I'm highlighting here
So congratulations to Vivaldi development team

Nice feature: https://vivaldi.com/blog/hide-privat...m-your-screen/

@ruario: is it possible to save Page actions like filter Obscure as preferences so next time the user opens the same domain page the Page actions still apply?

After building the 2.3.1440.48 version with the new SBo script (the one adding widewine), startup was distinctly slower than earlier. With the 2.3.1440.57 upgrade I used the old SBo script and now the startup is as snappy as I remembered it. Anyone else noticed the same?

How does one permanently turn off WebRTC handlng?

I've unchecked it in tools > settings > privacy, but every time I start Vivaldi it has been "re-selected."

Quote:
WebRTC is a protocol which suffers from a serious security flaw that compromises the privacy of VPN-tunnels, by allowing the true IP address of the user to be read. It is enabled by default in major browsers such as Firefox and Google Chrome.[87]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_privacy


Edit in: Apparenlty this is only a problem with ms-windows?
Quote:
The security experts and researchers have discovered the critical flaw in WebRTC that enable a website owner to view the real IP address of the user. Such privacy lack was able to insert vulnerability into the working of Windows operating system; otherwise, the users of Linux and Mac OS X are safe from such privacy threat and it’s not necessary for them to disable WebRTC from Firefox and Chrome browser.

The only difference between installations with and without widewine is the presence of the file
Code:
/opt/vivaldi/libwidevinecdm.so
Can the presence of this file make the startup slower? Do you consider startup without any open tabs? If not, do you have tabs that really use the widewine library?

I agree, it really doesn't make sense. Especially since I earlier (before widewine was added in the script) used to have a symlink to AlienBob's chromium-widewine package with no slow-down.

I never save tabs for next session, always start with a blank tab.

Well, if noone else have noticed the same, I guess that it was just an one-off with that particular build/version. Will try the new SBo script again at the next update and see what happens.

Vivaldi-2.4 is now available.

https://vivaldi.com/press/releases/v...customisation/

Quote:
OSLO, Norway – 27th March 2019: The Vivaldi browser launches its new version Vivaldi 2.4 unlocking a new level of customisation in toolbars – unique functionality that lets users move or hide buttons with ease between select toolbars.

Vivaldi 2.4 also gives users new ways to manage and access their bookmarks, enjoy multiple user profiles and allows them to do simple calculations with its new built-in calculator.

“Our goal has always been to make Vivaldi the most customizable browser available”, says Vivaldi CEO, Jon von Tetzchner. “Today’s update is another big step in that direction so that users can get more done with less effort, in the most intuitive and creative way possible.”

Trouble with menus not showing

Vivaldi 2.4.1488.35-x86_64-1_SBo on a full install of Slackware64 14.2 running twm-1.0.9-x86_64-1. For fullness I also have vivaldi-codecs-ffmpeg-extra-73.0.3683.75-x86_64-1_SBo

If I right click all I get is a brief flash of white but no menu comes up. It works fine in XFCE but TWM doesn't want to know.

This is not related to Vivaldi but something to do with TWM, I get the same thing using Brave browser.
