for those using mail and calendar Its a known issue in latest snapshot.
[Mail][Calendar] Google login popup on restart with an OAuth Google account in M3 or Calendar (VB-82865): Until we fix this you will need to login once per session, switch to “App Password” login or set your Gmail account as an offline account for the time being.
hope that helps.
@pesala -- I never used one. I'm a touch typist, and the Windows key got in the way, so I have bought old-style keyboards over the years. They are still being made.
I'm signing off now. I won't be back until the afternoon.
@sgolux This, & similar functions within the underlying Chromium Settings layer, has been discussed numerous times over V's lifetime. The problem / story is basically [i'm omitting heaps of salient details here; this is a very very inadequate description] that one of the primary differentiators of V from all its competitors, its massively customisable UI, is coded as a discrete layer on top of the Chromium bits & pieces. Everything you see, all in the UI with which you interact, is the result of explicit inhouse design & coding by the V Devs.
They are only a small team, & they have a huge workload, ergo notwithstanding the massive UI achievements already, users & Devs alike [afaik] acknowledge that much more still remains To Do. One such item is to integrate ALL the Chromium Settings natively into the V UI. Once the day arrives when that's done, we shan't need to use the internal Chromium Settings address anymore ... it'll all be present in V's own Settings.
Well, nobody knows. 🤷♀
Thank you @mib2berlin and @Catweazle . I do have a Google Voice account, and I have for years. So the timing of rendering the page is after I have logged in. I have thousands of SMS messages accessible from that page. I'm sure they are not ALL rendered just because the page is loaded, but I don't know how many are rendered. As I said, when I run in Edge or Chrome the page renders in 5 or 6 seconds, and much slower (30 or 40 seconds) in Vivaldi. I am running only ONE extension in Vivaldi, namely my password manager, Roboform.
When I try your "Guest Profile" idea, the page loads in about 25 seconds if I don't block anything, but in about 30 seconds when I block ads and trackers.. Not appreciably different than the non-guest-profile, but a little better. But still getting smoked by Edge and Chrome, which are still around 5 or 6 seconds, and both have many more extensions (including the same password manager).
My Vivaldi version is Version 93.0.4577.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)
My specs are VMWare Workstation x64-based 64 bit VM, 4 processors, 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1185G7 @ 3.00GHz 3.00 GHz, with GPU (but I have hardware acceleration turned off because it causes other Vivaldi problems, but when I turn it on to test this it doesn't make a difference). I have 8GB RAM installed.
@anonymouspigeon Yes. It is a common issue that people want fixed. The problem is that clearing the Closed Tabs list on exit would create problems for many users who close out Vivaldi by clicking the X on the Window. If the last window they close is not their main work-space, they will lose all of their tabs, and have to recover them from history, and if that is set to Session Only, the tabs won't even be in history.
Yes, I know, “Don’t treat your users like they are idiots,” but a lot of users are careless, so Vivaldi should err on the side of caution.
It takes only a second to clear your closed tabs list:
Click the Trash Icon
Press the Access Key (C for English UI).
Vote for Setting for Number of Closed Tabs to Store. Setting it to zero would not save any closed tabs, and would remove the Trash icon from the UK. Again, that might not be what you want.
since I wrote my post here two weeks ago then issue does not occurs anymore 🙂
Not sure if it was fixed in version 4.2 which I install right after released.
I will let you know when I face it again. Thanks.
@skedd Most of the preinstalled search engines come with working search suggestions. If you add an engine yourself, you have to input the search suggestion url in vivaldi://settings/search/ manually. You also have to check the setting to allow search suggestions in the address‐ and/or search field there.
@ayespy A background script is completely normal and almost every extension is running one. It will be terminated once the extension is disabled. Again, please link me an extension that messes up Vivaldi when disabled. I’m genuinely curious.
I had my Vivaldi installation synched to another computer and found I had the same problem there. The problem was definitely caused by DuckDuckGo Tracker Radar. I've also used Ublock Origin in the past but I'm wanting to use the built in ad blocker in an attempt to make Vivaldi display pages closer to the speed of Brave. The only extensions I use are Bitwarden and Fakespot.
