@Namal You've provided no information to address your issues.
Be aware that what you are experiencing is not seen by Vivaldi users in general - so to unsnarl your situation, a great deal more data is necessary.
What version and release number of Windows are you on? What 3rd party security software do you use? What is your hardware platform? What version of Vivaldi are you using? What extensions have you installed? What exactly are you doing when you get a crash?
I run three different versions of Vivaldi on six different machines daily, Win10, Win7, and Linux, without issues. Therefore, to address your situation, it would be necessary to know more about it. It clearly is not normal for Vivaldi.
Since Vivaldi is Chrome-like, you can access the chrome settings page at: chrome://settings/content/cookies (just copy and paste into your search bar).
There you can see the option to clear cookie when you quit
I also just tested and found out that this option already exists in Vivaldi, and was already pointed out by a different answer:
@Tiamarth said in Automatically clean cache on exit:
Vivaldi settings > Privacy > Cookies > Accept Cookies > Session Only
As far as I know this will only clear your cookies, not your history/downloads etc.
You could also set Vivaldi settings > Privacy > Save Browsing History > One Day, which will clear your browsing history after one day, every day.
It's called Session Only in Vivaldi, and can be found in the privacy settings (vivaldi://settings/privacy/).
@Mogle I guess that will come if Vivaldi is up to Chromium 86.
Chrome/ium 86 Canary has it now. => https://9to5google.com/2020/07/15/google-chrome-for-desktop-will-soon-let-you-edit-your-saved-passwords/
I didn't say it was a site problem, I said it could be. It isn't a problem I have encountered - but I stick to Snapshot builds and thus can't rule out that it might happen in Stable. And I made no mention of "infinite scroll" - though now that you mention it perhaps that would be related ... no, that wouldn't. On sites like Flickr I've seen it go Back to a wrong place, but that isn't the top.
You need to load the installer for Flash Player from https://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/ and install.
Then you have to enable Flash Player in Vivaldi Settings > Webpages.
When you visit the website, click on lock/(i) icon in address field, enable Flash by selecting Allow from dropdown and reload page.
@Pathduck yeah, it seems to come and go... CPU usage and IO weren't too high all this time. I use Process Explorer by that guy from SysInternals and usually CPU load is around 30% (not counting brower). Not so much, more or less fine to have Vivaldi fit there with its new tab. I always have 2-3 tabs loaded in memory and active (and around 6 hibernated), that's all.
When I open a new tab, the process which takes ~40% is the one with ID of App: Vivaldi (the parent of Background Page: Vivaldi). Browser process (I mean here as they are called in browser Task manager run with Shift+Esc) shows maybe 2-5%, GPU Process - around 10%. At least usually they are in that order. There isn't any disk or memory usage at that time (although browser takes IO but not at that moment when opening new tab).
While using it now, I see usually new tab loads its name almost immediately, sometimes - in 3-5 seconds. Hardware usage doesn't really change while I check that, so it's like it happens independently. So I guess I'm fine with that for now. Thank you for your help and time.
@kimoo said in Videos very slow inside Vivaldi:
@Ayespy try to put a portable elder versions of V even 2018 versions and try to run same videos in http://mbasic.facebook.com , and it will run much better and faster
That is just Facebook home page in stripped down look. Can you point to some streaming video instead? For example how you run this Youtube video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXb3EKWsInQ
It is 60fps and I ran it at 1440p. I checked new Edge and Chrome and Vivaldi seems to be same speed. Only making it Fullscreen and back is a bit slower or takes more animation steps than Chrome and Edge. Otherwise same video playback here. I don't use dedicated GPU card, just Intel HD 630 onboard graphics card.
Your hint to the settings page was the right one!
And how did you solve your problem now? Others, searching for help here might have interest.
There's only one switch on that settings page, so it's not that ambiguous
This "automatically" is misleading as it seems to include any download link where a script was involved (which a user can't know, unless he checks the page source), even if the actual download is triggered manually. It is also very bad form, because the download dialogue appears, but when you click "Save", nothing happens.
