@yjs14 There not a lot to render with a blank page, but the same thing happens if I set to New Page to a local HTML file (again with very little content to render) or any live page on the web. It is only a second, so what's the problem?
@AgFar It's probably because that is the URL used to sign into the Chrome browser. This URL is not functional outside off Chrome. You can sign into Google, but you can't directly sign into Vivaldi using Google, meaning you cannot sync bookmarks, history, etc.

When opened, I forgot to remember the current session. All that was done was to install the browser extension. How can I fix the situation? And now a couple of times I entered / left - normally. Reloaded - again an empty page at startup ...
I had animations disabled and accidentally found out the animations on tabs were improved and while playing around to see them I once again had to see the UI that has neither borders nor gradient or anything.
I stacked 3 windows on top and they all look like a single horribly disfigured window.
I doubt anyone can argue that this looks nowhere near aesthetically pleasing, come on. There should be gradient and border options inside the theme creation settings.
@pawpawone That's not a real file path is it? The .exe sould be in c: \ program files (or program files (x86)) \ Mozilla firefox and the user profile should be in c: \ Users\ USER \ AppData \ Roaming \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ charstring.default
@Hexaemeron Mmh, okay I see if op meant this issue I indeed misunderstood this. Btw I wasn't even aware of this issue due to the fact that I never use the searchbox or even have it activated. But good to know about that irritating behaviour.
In another thread there was a pretty nice workaround that even skips the part where you do some weird windows-magic ^^ to get your vivaldi window back on screen.
1.) Go to vivaldi://about copy the "Profile Path" (It should look like this but can vary when you have standalone C:\Users[your user name]\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default)
2.) Close Vivaldi --> go to said directory and search for a "Preferences" file --> open it with a text editor (e.g. notepad)
3.) Press "Ctrl +F" and search for the term vivaldi_window_1 the first hit should look like this:
4.) Now make sure that the values for X and Y (I coloured them red in the example in 3.) above) are set to 0. This pins your vivaldi window with its upper left corner into the upper left corner of your screen.
