Tip #54

Click on the padlock on the Address Bar to access Site Settings.

Behind the padlock icon on the left side of the Address Bar, you’ll find a lot of useful information about the website you currently have open.

  • Information about connection security and certificates.
  • Allowed and blocked permissions.
  • Allowed and blocked cookies.
  • Additional settings.

The padlock indicates that the connection is secure. But you may also see the following icons in place of the padlock:

  • – your connection to the site is not private and you should not share any sensitive information (e.g. passwords) with the site.
  • – your connection is not fully secure and you should be careful about sharing any sensitive information (e.g. passwords) with the site.
  • – you’re viewing Vivaldi’s internal page (e.g. vivaldi://about) or a local file.
  • – on Start Page, instead of the Site Info button, you’ll see a search icon.

There are more ways to open bookmarks in Vivaldi than can be counted on one hand. One way is to type the bookmark nickname, instead of the long bookmark link, either in the address field on the Address Bar or in Quick Commands.

To give your bookmark a nickname, edit the bookmark and type a word you associate with the bookmark in the Nickname field.

Then, whenever you want to open the bookmarked page, just type the nickname in the address field or Quick Commands and press Enter. While typing, you can also see matching nicknames and the link they’re for in the drop down menu.

Bookmark nickname typed in the address field.

In Quick Commands, to open bookmarks as soon as you’ve finished typing their nickname, you can enable “Open Bookmarks on Nickname Match” in Settings > Quick Commands > Quick Command Options. That way you can even skip pressing Enter.
