    I thought it was just me, but seems to be a bug in the menu, same goes for the bookmarks bar, did you report it yet? And I'm afraid all Chromium based browsers are resource hungry, this also annoys me. I sometimes open 50 tabs with Opera 12, I wonder what will happen when I do this with Chrome or Vivaldi. I'm not a fan of the multi process architecture, it's good for security and stability, but I never had any problems with Opera 12 when it came to this.

    My Bookmarks settings have become unavailable just like what's posted here and here.
    I'm not starting another profile.

    As a long time Firefox user, I just don't have the patience for it as I miss vital features that are simply not available in Chrome based browsers.
    And Firefox addons seem to be much more refined than Chrome ones.

    I also miss Tab Wheel Scroll.
    Once you had it, it's pretty hard to live without it.

    Plus a bunch of other great addons.

    I've enabled it, but can't see it.

    I suspect this is an old Opera feature, but what is the difference between:
    1. Rewind & Fast Forward
    2. Previous Page & Next Page

    OK. I know what number 2 means, but how does it differ to number 1?

    I believe rewind goes to the first address you visited while fast forward goes to the last address you visited from that particular tab.

    vivaldi to blame again as a "standalone"
    kicked all my extensions when changing windows.

    not possible to run it as a real portable like opera without a sync account.

    what a waste of time - deleted!

    when you press ctrl+tab a window will popup showing a popup thumbnail of all the tabs you have open. if its disabled it will cycle through your tabs without showing the thumbnails.

    Vivaldi seems to be coming along real well - you can create your own mouse gestures now. Also, someone over on the Vivaldi forum said that the eventual aim was to make it just as customizable as opera 12 and below had been.

    When they get rid of that "lazy tabs" feature nonsense, let me know.

    I tried the latest version, but the bug with the bookmarks manager still isn't fixed. Why do they need people like me to point this out? If they were on point they would have already noticed it. What I also hate about Chrome based browsers is that they disable Flash if it's outdated, I hate this "baby-sitting". Does anyone know how to turn this off?

    Are you sure you're talking about the same bug? Because I believe I didn't mention this specific bug in this thread, but I may be wrong. But anyway, what happens is that when you click on a bookmark, the bookmarks manager navigates to the top automatically. It doesn't matter if you open a bookmark in the fore or background. I mean, is it really this hard to spot such a bug for the developers themselves?

    Sorry, I believe I confused with the post of someone else. My bookmarks issue with Vivaldi with the bookmarks import.

    BTW, is it true that both Chrome and Vivaldi can not open these links in the background? I have no problem with Firefox. BTW, AH is a Dutch supermarket, see link.
