@Gwen-Dragon said in Cannot open usatoday.com:
The flag to disable cross origin opener policy will lower security against bad attacks and like well-known Spectre etc. on all pages you visit.
Description of "Cross-Origin-Opener-Policy":
In the past ad servers sometimes inject bad code and malware in prominent sites. And why should be USA2day always be the safest site? No.
That is why I disagree in enabling the flag.
I tested on Windows 10 with 32bit Vivaldi 3.2 and one webpanel wit the site your mentioned.
The download panel opens when i download vivaldi installier from vivaldi.com, shows the progress of download in icon and download panel progressbar, and after finished i get a notification, too.
May be your issue is a Windows-8-only issue.
You are most certainly correct. However delage32 in this specific case has been in our arsenal for >10 years so i personally do trust this explicitly.
I am aware of forfiles actually so ... well i got a bit lazy here
I completely agree one should not do that if your are uncertain about it. Since i rewrote my reply completely actually the part that included a warning about specificly that kind of behavior and also always run it through virustotal or something alike that got apperently lost. My bad.
To complete it: Even if you find a recommend tool always be carefull if the post has gotten old. Sometimes authors give up their homepage and shady people are grabbing it. While thats a more common issue on the Appstores for Mobile Phones (often less work for more targets) it also happens in the world of "normal" Windows applications.
Also changed the link to the program description instead of direct download to give a little more input..
Please read https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/48560/cannot-open-usatoday-com/18 for a workaround.
And my warning as this workaround lower security and could steal data from your browser https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/48560/cannot-open-usatoday-com/20
Thank You to both nafumofu & claudio for this solution to enable the gannett site's to load properly again, it really intrigues as to how this 'fix' was discovered. Once again what most of us already know this form is SO great for user's trying to help other user's. Please Stay Safe !!
OK, the problem seems to have corrected itself so to speak.
While restarting my PC was not helping my PC crashed when I was doing Folding@Home without turning off my GPU Overclock. When I started my PC from a cold boot afterwards Vivaldi started up without being logged into sync, the original pinned tabs now returned, but not in order, and the ones where I took the pinned tabs and took them from their "The Great Suspender" pages to the actual web pages they represented.
Vivaldi is also launching properly now. Now I can set up my sync encryption password/key.
I guess whatever was causing the problem was either reset by the crash or my PC was just not shutting down properly when restarting.
While waiting for Vivaldi to solve the problem, we have a temporary solution.
Disable this flag and relaunch Vivaldi
All the Gannett news sites work properly again.

@yvespires I find that the sound plays, but the notification dialogs do not appear over the YouTube video.
I was watching a video fullscreen on the Primary monitor, with focus on the primary monitor, not on the secondary monitors.
Two notifications always appear on the primary monitor as I have two windows open.
(VB-66098) Alarm Notification Always Displays on Primary Monitor
I reported in One day. Two big Vivaldi browser releases that this was fixed, but I still see two notifications.
To watch the video you need to have JS enabled for these domains:
Then there are scripts that need to be neutralized and it is obvious from uBlock log panel.
(uBlock filter list)
+js(aeld, , pop)
(uBlock filter list - resource abuse)
These are for "nxload"
fuckadblock.js-3.2.0 << redirection to neutered resource
This is for "cloudflare" and it is interesting because it means uBlock is redirecting the network request to a local JS file instead of the remote file.
Now, I don't know if Vivaldi can apply the same "rules" as above for "nxload" by loading the uBlock filter lists but I strongly doubt it can redirect connections to "neutered resources", which BTW must be provided somehow.
That said, here we are speaking of "features" not "bugs".
I think I have fixed it within Logitech Options: Select the thumb wheel from the diagram. Change the assignment from 'Horizontal Scroll' to 'Keystroke Assignment'. In 'Turn Up' assign a keyboard right click and in 'Turn Down' assign a keyboard left click (or the other way round if you prefer). It works for me albeit not terribly smoothly but it works.
EDIT: I improved the scroll by increasing sensitivity to maximum.
