@Gwen-Dragon I disabled admuncher and ublock origin overnight and left it (it was late last night).
Got off work and seems OK.
Trying turning just ublock back on.
My issue is probably just from using ad muncher. Honestly, mostly redudant and probably extremely outdated. Believe the developer abandoned it. I'll post back later if anything changes.
Edit: Yeah seems ad muncher was the issue for me with CPU usage. NetFlix issue I believe is a codec limitation. Even on their website, says chrome (variants) are only capable of 720p. You can do 1080p but it downgrades or lags terribly. Edge has one use now at least.
I found this similar topic where I read that autocomplete="off" should not block Vivaldi saving logins and passwords.
Indeed if I go to chrome://settings/passwords I see that I have saved login and password in the past.
I remember that with an older version of Vivaldi, not very long time ago, quite recently, my login and password would appear but after a long delay, after like 30 seconds on the page when I tabulate to/from fields… but now no more.
@Hirumo I use the latest Snapshot installed as Standalone as my default browser, but have the latest Stable version installed for testing purposes.
To change the type of installation, uninstall, and reinstall as Standalone. They can both be standalone versions. Use sync to share bookmarks etc. if you wish.
Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit 1809 build 17763.195 • Snapshot 2.3.1401.7 (64-bit)
@Gwen-Dragon and others, thank you for your respons.
I was wrong about Edge, it works neither slow as with Vivaldi.
I don't use a vpn for visiting this site etc.
I tried more than twenty other sites and al sites working fine.
Only manybooks.net is very slow.
I replayed by manybooks.net they send my email to the technical staff.
So, no answer from them.
I am having the exact same issue:
From vivaldi://settings/content/notifications (the extension icon on the right cannot be interacted with):
And in the address bar tooltip when clicking on the icon:
I have no extensions allowing any notifications from Facebook.
I checked vivaldi://serviceworker-internals and Facebook was there, but I noticed no change after unregistering it.
I am not even a Facebook user but I do have a dumb account I use to ask questions to small companies whose only webpage and contact form is their Facebook account, and now I'm receiving notifications for friend suggestions all the time.
[Edit] I just disabled notifications from the Facebook account: Settings/Notifications/Mobile and web, hopefully this was the issue. Vivaldi still considers that an extension is allowing notifications for Facebook though, and this is not the case.

How do I clear cache and other items from the browser? Thanks.
In case you don't know, Vivaldi Browser Help Center is available by hitting F1
A bit similar feature requests:
I had to split this reply from https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/33633/vivaldi-gets-stuck-on-some-pages-very-slow-like-frozen/
Some Pages is generic, we need an example.
Just for the records: I am a volunteer and my job is support Vivaldi users who are having issues.
The Community Rules defines how to report a problem. See #5 on my signature
@dracho said in Any way to disable the "This type of file can harm your computer" warning?:
that's for editing resources inside windows exes
Much, much simpler.
whatever floats your boat, mate.
@loyfromcolorado If you want to install in Chrome, you have to install using the Chrome browser. If you want to install in Vivaldi, you have to install using the Vivaldi browser. When you do so, it will still say "install in Chrome," but that is not what it is doing. It is installing in Vivaldi.
The extensions installations accessed by each browser are different, and in a different place on your hard drive. The same with the actual browser program. Vivaldi "uses the Chromium engine," but it does not access the Chromium directory to do so. The Chromium engine used by Vivaldi is specially altered and patched exclusively for Vivaldi, and is installed in the Vivaldi directory.
@macfan I reported the issue informally, that's all I can say.
