@pesala Good find, thanks. I could not find it before. All of you are welcome to add your vote to the request.
@Ayespy I zoom via Ctrl + Plus or Minus or Ctrl + scroling wheel on mouse. When you you zoom in more steps (from like 100 percent to 170) in one draught, the slowness is really noticable. Sometimes it takes like a second to get to the final zoom stage. In IE or FF, it is almost instant. Input lag when the action is initiated is not that bad. While it is quite acceptaple here in the forum, it is almost shameful on site like https://www.idnes.cz/ – complexity of website is also a factor.
Pinch to zoom on touch screen is another story. IE and Edge are great, FF is incredibly slow and Vivaldi do not react to the gesture at all.

The actual gestures (hold right button and move mouse), I'm pretty sure they do. The chords (two buttons. or things involving scroll wheel) ... I don't know.
Strangely there's a similar bug in Opera - they use Ctrl-Tab to display a tab list, if the mouse happens to be where the list appears then the wrong tab is selected. Makes me think it may be related to Chromium rather than Opera and Vivaldi's respective code. Maybe they need to work together on this one ...
@0blivion Regarding your uninstall/install vivaldi again problem to speed up the start time. You might want to try the following the next time you want to do this.
1.) Clean the list of finished downloads in the side panel (that has been reported a few times as an issue - don't know if this is fixed yet)
If this doesn't do the trick than
2.) Open a new tab click on history and hit the brush icon on the right side and clean your history, cache, cookies&storage and applications cache.
No success guaranteed but it should be worth a try.
@catweazle Well thanks, I see it too, the pdf viewer is enabled for surer. I do not see anything in Settings > Download that will change the situation. There, I always have checked the two lowermost boxes, as I want to choose my own download location all the time.
As a matter of fact NOTHING AT ALL downloads from Vivaldi here since last week, last example being a retoure label for a package.
I just cannot download anything and save it. When pressing that arrow, which you have marked in the viewer, I am directed to the explorer, where I can choose a directory to save, and when pushing on Save, I can see the file name in the left-
side download list column with the following message underneath it:
"0 bytes of 384,50 kB - stopped" [which I never did]
When I then press the arrow to continue from Pause, the writing says
"384.50 kB of 384,50 kB at 4.8 kB/s" [or so, which is ridiculously slow*]
but it never gets finished and saved, and will never open from there either.
Again, it certainly is not linked to my internet connection or that sample page. Chrome does everything in a few seconds.
So, the problem is more deep-seated, and linked to my Vivaldi, in which it started to be noticed after one of the recent updates. Actually, they have indicated "improvements" to the download.
I just downloaded the file in a fraction of a second, without problems. Your problem therefore can only be due to what you mention @zaibon, that your AV or something else blocks it.
I use Panda
For those who come upon this thread with the same problem, before going full nuclear on the profile as a whole, try replacing just browser.html in the profile.
That was the cause of it for me. When I was modifying it, I accidentally used an old version of that file which was missing some lines. A white screen ensued upon restart. I imagine if browser.html was somehow corrupted on an upgrade, or in some other way, the same thing would happen.
Did you install 1.14 Snapshot (BETA) over 1.13 Stable before? Thus may result into Vivaldi browser profile problems.
Please for a check with a fresh profile:
Check in Windwos Taskmanager if all Vivaldi processes (may stay there from former crashes) closed, if not ,terminate them.
Copy %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data
Paste into Explorer address field
Rename folder Default
Start Vivaldi without changing any setting!
Type some addresses in address bar
