It was Windows Firewall after all. I added the two ports Vivaldi uses to upload sync data (one is 443, other is searchable) as allowed ports as a new rule in outbound traffic and all is working well. Thanks for the response.
@LonM said in Need a bit of help with custom user profile location:
You could install Vivaldi as "standalone" on the drive that you want it to store its data on. Then make sure to set that particular one as the default browser.
Guess that's something to try next. I doubt it will impact the startup and load pages much if I use the HDD. The video streams barely do 1-7MB/s on the disk which is really low even for the slow HDDs.
The separate cache seems to work nicely for now with one exception, when the browser is closed and it starts because you clicked a link somewhere in another app. When this happens all the arguments in the Properties of the executable are ignored.
I remember (might be wrong, lots of time passed) that the old Presto Opera had option menus for changing its folders, including cache/profile.
Might be nice to have those back. It would fully solve this, as the browser would respect its Options, regardless of how it is launched. The argument solution is quite bad, can't understand why Chromium uses it.
Never saw such message.
A screenshot would be interesting to see.
Last pass had some issues in past on Vivaldi, but I don't think is able to corrupt the profile or the chrome:// pages.
Most chromium options are pointless in Vivaldi (they simply don't work), but some may be helpful, so yes, should be accessible.
As general rule you really should avoid changing settings from there if not need or if vivaldi has a similar option in its settings (under the gear icon).
I hope won't happen again ^^
Not using DPI scaling, and i'm on Windows 7. My monitor is set to 1360x768 and usually use Vivaldi at 85% scaling.
The problems isn't about scaling, if you watch the screenshot you can not a lot of wasted space (padding?), and the box isn't scaled with the page.
Until yesterday everything was fine, so i wonder what happened.
@CryptisMidnight In fact what you did already was the correct way that you don't have to disable bitdefender in the future, as the blocking is coming from their site the Vivaldi devs can't do much about it so the only way is to let bitdefender developers know about the problem - the more people do this the more likely it is that they'll test their new versions against vivaldi before releasing it.
So a big thanks to you for contributing
I originally had Vivaldi blocking my third-party cookies, and I also had extensions (uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and Cookie AutoDelete). I realized that my extensions were already customized to block the cookies I don't want and then they would auto delete them. After I disabled Block Third-Party Cookies from Vivaldi, my Gmail worked again as normal. Hope this helps someone else out there.

Issue wasn't present on earlier version. How can I roll back to previous version?
@lemonjuice said in Vivaldi standalone - large Installer folder:
But the installer is not removed. I've check another standalone installation I have and after a few updates the Installer folder is still there.
Removed is mis-leading, the contents are replaced by the updated "installer" files - thus the "old" ones are removed but new ones are added to facilitate the next update.
