Deprecated – is now built in.
It is possible to do that with a little hack, but it comes with a caveat:
It breaks the “open” button behavior of the download dialog – so you have to open it manually after download.
Having said that, here it is:
- look for the user profile directory of your Vivaldi in
vivaldi://about(V-Button > Help > About) and open that in your file manager.
- close Vivaldi
- open the file named preferences with a decent editor (You should backup that file before, just in case, you know …)
- search for:
(including the quotation marks etc.)
- look for the } that follows immediately after that
- before the } add the following:
(including the comma and the quotation marks etc.)
- Save the file.
Done. From now on Vivaldi should ask before every download – but be aware of the caveat!
