Something worth noting about this issue (hopefully the underlying cause is fixed soon...):
Local PDFs that are opened, that get stuck in a "always loading" state, seem to eventually crash the tab (showing a "dead bird" icon). If you try and close such tabs to re-open them, it causes the whole browser to crash.
Does download work in Private Windows mode? normal mode
Do you use extensions (Addons) in Vivaldi? no addons
Do you use Internet Security Software? use windows defender only
Do you use VPN/Proxy? use private WIFI.
the last,i deleted and uninstalled browser vivaldi and installed back popup and works tx
Didn't see this thread.
I had regular crashes (especially since v2)
I thought related to pdf viewer (but must be just a catalyst)
but seems in fact related to Ctrl+F
Got dozen of crashes this morning alone even with extensions disabled.
Opening pdf files and using YT seems to help to reproduce the bug.
Crash logs aren't always generated
But I sent the ones I had to bug report.
NB: Experienced once 2x CPU cores (on 4) used at full use, but don't know if related to this (after 2.3 (original) install).
@simonwhite Unfortunately some web sites don't know about Vivaldi and they don't accept all the User -Agent (it's how the sites identify the browser) to connect to their site.
You can install a UA-switcher extension. The Dev's recommends:
Just add for example:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/72.0.3626.96 Safari/537.36
and refresh the page, it should work fine now.
In case you decide to install the UA switcher, let us know how things worked.
Thanks to @steinh for the tip.
@Rafale Well, I'd assume they'd only release something to make it better, and not worse.
@Rafale said in High Memory usage:
got it thanks. Didn't know that.
I don't want to dig too much as to what is causing Vivaldi to consume so much Memory in my system. Hope the upcoming releases are better
I can verify lagging with Outlook online and 4-5 tabs open on:
Opensuse Tumbleweed x86_64
CPU i7-3520M 8 GB
GPU Intel HD4000
KDE Plasma 126.96.36.199
Vivaldi 2.4.1455.4 (Official Build) snapshot (64-bit)
It lags even writing this message or work on notes, mark text and so forth.
Never had this before, good find.
EDIT: Closing Outlook online give power back.
@Gwen-Dragon I set ignore blacklist to true and restarted. VP9 is still not accelerated.
I have tested Brave and Opera too now.
Browsers that support VP9 acceleration:
Browsers that don't support VP9 acceleration:
VP9 acceleration has been supported on Nvidia GPU's since the GTX950.
