Install Vivaldi as a Standalone version only for you (in Installer Advanced) and the User Data folder will be created on the folder Vivaldi is installed.
Or edit all Windows registry entries for vivaldi.exe and add --user-data-dir="D:\YOUR\WORN\VIVALDI\USERDATA"
Or start Vivaldi with a desktop shortcut and add there extra paramater --user-data-dir="....."

Hi, can verify the freeze on this page, Chrome 71.0.3578.98 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit) and Opera 57.0.3098.116 work smooth.
May you make a bug report.
@tawell said in Vivaldi gets stuck on some pages, very slow like frozen:
Truly impossible to work with.
Well, as 99.9 % of all pages I use work fine with Vivaldi on 5 different Windows/Linux systems for me I use Vivaldi all day.
@Gwen-Dragon: @xyzzy said in Vivaldi instantly crashes whenever I try to open the Private Window and problem with spellcheck:
... looks like it might be related to Sync.
Seems to be correct. No more crashes for about half an hour since deactivating the syncing data by removing the checkmarks. Still testing this.
Some VM have trouble to use/emulate graphics hardware acceleration.
I do not know much about your VM.
And i do not know the guest OS.
Please check my hints step by step:
Some codec packs may not work with Vivaldi and OS
Old or broken graphics drivers
Some setting could activate hardware/2D/3D acceleration
May be the guest can not use Hardware Acceleration for videos.
Try override the GPU blacklisting by opening vivaldi://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist and set to Enable.
I think that if the browser itself respects the privacy and security of the user it is sufficient. From there, the responsibility rests with the user himself, depending on the services he uses, the extensions and the protection of the system.
It is completely meaningless if a browser is required to protect the security and privacy of the user, if he post details of his private life with photos on Spy... Facebook or other social networks.
I'm not sure it is really the scroll wheel that is causing the issue, at least not for me. I have a Logitech MX Master and did what you did, but bizarrely, this site you mentioned didn't freeze at all for me.
But I do still have the problem that Vivaldi seems to freeze randomly on certain sites.
Have a look at my post over here:
@Arrivest in Vivaldi Ctrl+Shift+C is not for Developer Tools to Inspect hovered element, it is Vivaldi global for 'Copy to Note'.
I guess the priority for a fix is not high as you can circumvent this by F12.
@Pesala specific site resources causing this type of error can be identified via the Developer Tools Console:
Mixed Content: The page at '<site>' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure <resource type> '<resource link>'.
@iAN-CooG in danger of being too pedantic; a simple link is not enough, see for example @Pesala's previous post with (auto-converted) URLs not triggering any problem on this site.
@greigpj said in Vivaldi Theme for Google Drive Sheets:
I resolved this for the most part by switching themes and installing dark reader extension. As a suggestion, this could be built into Vivaldi?
Dark Reader is a good option. What I would like for Vivaldi would be, that the filter itself to invert colors would keep the sites where you want it to be active
@squaredave You could use the icon in the Address Field instead.
The suggestion list is probably your most visited sites, many of which will be on the Bookmarks Bar, so won't need adding to Speed Dial.
I added a Feature Request for this. It makes no sense to add frequently used bookmarks that may already be on the Bookmark Bar, to the Start Page as well.
Option to Omit Bookmarks from Speed Dial Suggestions
For the system on which I've seen this happen, it has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 processor with 128 Mb of VRAM and access to 4Gb of shared system memory. The problem has occurred so infrequently that I have no clear recollection of which URLs have been involved in my case... though I'll note them should it occur in the future. On that system, Vivaldi is set to "Use hardware acceleration when available." I've not noted any other video-related issues.
edited to add: The black window just occurred at this website: https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/winter-storm-slows-travel-plains-states-heads-east-60485876 , but it did not recur upon a revisit. The page contains 2 small auto-play videos on the lower left. The whole Vivaldi window inside the outer frame went black about 5-10 seconds after visiting the site, lasted for about 1 second, then the page reappeared - typical of what it's done at other times.
