The problem described is appearing regularly on my work laptop (Win10, Dell E7470) to the extend that stopped open some sites in Vivaldi. Few hours ago freez happened just after search was started for the first time on my home desktop machine (Win7, Dell Optiplex 990). Searches were performed on completely different sites. There was no crash log. After the browser was restarted I tried to reproduce the problem on home machine, but attempt was unsuccessful.
What is common for both systems:
Vivaldi 2.3.1440.41 (32-bit)
large amount of open tabs (40-60 on avarage)
browser session is restored every time vivaldi is started
uBlock Origin extension in both environments
I've been having this same issue off and on since I started using this browser several months ago. I've determined that it only happens 9 seconds in on any video with audio, but only if that video is the first twitter video played in Vivaldi after the browser is first opened from a complete shutdown. I've tested it in incognito mode and it happens there as well. I've submitted it as bug report VB-49533, and I've reproduced it on these two tweets https://twitter.com/TheKatalyst_/status/1096572913560494081 https://twitter.com/aligatie/status/1095810701577220097. The audio continues to remain bugged even after Vivaldi has been reset.
ADDENDUM: And... just after re-enabling the browser extensions (Ghostery, Click&Clean) and revisiting the website, the problem has mysteriously completely cleared up! This has been the third episode I've encountered involving this issue since updating Vivaldi to 2.3.1440.41, the other two occurring with other websites besides 1stheadlines that also opened links in new tabs... both of those cleared up after restarting the browser (in one case) and restarting the system (in the other). In this case, nothing was done except re-enabling the extensions and revisiting the website to verify the problem existed - which, of course, it didn't. Very exasperating... there's little in software worse than non-repeatability, unless it's repeatability that suddenly becomes unrepeatable!!!

Re: [Too long to start with many tabs](slow operation)
The GPU tweaks only make sense if you have a dedicated GPU (as in a gaming card).
thats what I thought because I have "Enable GPU rasterization", "Disabled" so it doesn't effect rendering of the page. My PC has a built in video chip not a dedicated video card, so I turned off GPU settings since it probably can't handle all the separate commands. HTH
