@Inventer89 Restore Windows user and the SID
Then you may recover the Windows encrypted data.
@Eggcorn , yes, right, the usual slash, sorry. Apart from this, I have always found what I was looking for, even without using Google, so I'm not too worried about it working with Searx or not either.
Specific things anyway I look for with corresponding specific search engines. In terms of images even Yandex shows more results than Google (it is one of the image search engines I use in the context menu)
Mine is probably a separate problem , but it put up a similar failure dialog. Except mine just said the update failed, no clue why. Finally downloaded the full version which installed properly.
For each failure I find a folder like:
Directory of C:\Users\loren\AppData\Local\Temp\Update-08d3c0f6-3027-4f3e-83a7-2b434dd425bb

And a binary file like:

The possibly strange thing is these happened right before the first Vivaldi failure:
11/25/2020 12:00 AM 2,149 chrome_installer.log
11/25/2020 12:00 AM 3,289 msedge_installer.log
I certainly didn't intend to install those. Ever since I got Win 10 2004, it has been randomly putting up notifications that my default app has been reset - to Edge. But when I look it is always still Vivaldi. Is there some kind of browser war going on here?
@Gwen-Dragon said in Can I import passwords?:
For Vivaldi a csv file to import logins from need this format (example):
Import in Vivaldi:
Set to Enable
At right of Saved Passwords select the 3-dots-button
select csv file in file open dialog
Thanks for the import passwords info. You and others mentioned Chrome as in Google Chrome. What about Firefox as I use Firefox. You and others suggested this unusual way to import/export passwords.
I have exported/imported CSV files for almost 40 yr using this STD CSV file format with no problems.
Is the way you suggested part of Vivaldi's programing.
That's strange because that should happen if you try to Open the file and it's not associated to any application, Show in file manager shouls just open explorer pointing to your default download directory.
Thanks for the fast reply. It started after I updated vivaldi and chrome but It seems it was some windows problem, because this problem affected both of them. A system restart solved it.
Although answering the question, yes, bookmarks just stucked in bookmarks bar, bookmarks full page and even in extensions. It was really weird. I usually restart my laptop after 3-5 day, I didn't thought about it as a solution. Now it is working so everything is happy, however I don't really know what was the cause of it.
@Hadden89 IIRC, it was possible to skip entering the encryption password in the beginning, so the login password was used automatically and users forgot that there even was an extra password needed. Now you can still use the same password for encrypting data as for login, but you have to knowingly type it in.
@Zalex108 The minimum length for both the login and encryption password is 12 characters.
@billgjos Thanks to all in the community that responded to my post about Wunderground not loading fully.
The issue resolved after I ran the free version of cCleaner and - both general and registry cleaning. I did this for something else, but it cleaned out whatever was disturbing Vivaldi on Wunderground. I had previously cleared Vivaldi cookies internally and that had not worked. I run Adblock+ and Privacy Badger and have my Vivaldi tracker settings at none. I'm running...
Vivaldi 3.4.2066.106 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
OS Windows 10 OS Version 2009 (Build 19042.630)
Now I can check how long the fog outside is likely to last. The Vivaldi fog has gone.
