I retested the cpu load with snapshot 4.2.2406.23-1:
Situation seems mostly unchanged. Only thing to note is, that after closing the last window of Vivaldi, all processes of Vivaldi are terminating after a while (in earlier days I had to manually terminate the processes as their shutdown lasted too long).
=> I can use the Calendar function for my own calendar in Google Workspace but not together with those of my co-workers - as in this case Vivaldi becomes too sluggish/unresponsive.
During my first sync of theses additional calendars my cpu load looks like this:
@bidmead Did you relaunch the browser after enabling that flag as instructed by the browser?
I see no problem with it here, as you can see the button Visual is cropped, but nothing from the text below, and the scrollbar is invisble.
1st screenshot is system's global scale at 125%, Vivaldi's UI & Webpages at 100%
2nd screenshot is system's global scale at 100%, Vivaldi's UI & Webpages at 100%
@DoctorG, good to know it could be something related to cinnamon.
Is there any known configuration do in Cinnamon or any other workaround?
Since Vivaldi is the new default browser on Manjaro Cinnamon, I expect more people to experience this behavior.
@jafi0101 Wait, i try now on Manjaro (KDE).

@npro I always shut down V before doing an upgrade, so I don't think that's my problem. I will check out that section of the forum to see if there are any clues to be found there. Thanks for the link!!
It gets wierder. Today I tried to link to an item on The Register.
Vivaldi opened with the previous first page, and then locked, in the sense that there was no reaction from the page. I clicked the link in the Reg again and VIVALDI opened with THREE pages with the Reg page.....!!!
Well, for test I've downloaded/installed into my everyday machine, brave, opera and google chrome, all chromium based. They all have the same problem.
Also tried firefox, librewolf and icecat. They are all fine.
Then booted into live cd with nothing installed, obviously. Downloaded/installed vivaldi, brave and opera. They are all fine.
So, it seems, that something doesn't like/agree with chromium browsers. Go figure what.
