That's my question:
IS IT A BUG?
I know that it doesn't work - and I've reported that several times in this very forum (the one to which you were, for some reason, directing me towards).
My question is: Is it expected?
@Pathduck To be honest, I am just sometimes super lazy. When this phenomenon first appeared I thought somebody also suffer from this issue and already reported as a bug, so the fix is underway in one of the Vivaldi versions.
After a while I used to it, but in the past few days I had enough and started a full-scale investigation, but I didn't find a solution or anyone else with this issue, so this is why I started this topic. I just wanted to be sure that I didn't miss something.
Upgraded to Vivaldi 2.9.1675.11. Still would run only with --no-sandbox in Linux on DeX (LoD). There is only one Linux distro available for LoD, only an Ubuntu 16.04. That's the only one to test Vivaldi on in LoD. Anyone has any idea, how to get it going without that flag? @ruario?
If I try to run it normally, I get this,
Failed to move to new namespace: PID namespaces supported, Network namespace supported, but failed: errno = Operation not permitted
I have Vivaldi Beta on Android in the Android side, but that's a different matter.
@srart said in Anyone testing Vivaldi on Linux on DeX?:
I made a separate startup script so I can pass a couple of flags. I think one of them is no-sandbox.
You know about your risk? No-Sandbox means less security for a browser tab/process and is not recommended by Vivaldi team.
@rlocone OK so it's on local network. It will be a challenge to figure out, you're basically on your own
Can you contact the support for this product with the issue?
I know sometimes local IPs and cookie permissions can be an issue. You can try going to chrome://settings/content/cookies and add the site to allow, like this: 10.0.0.1
Also I'd ask you to open Developer Tools (F12) on the login page, open the Network tab in DevTools, then recreate the issue. You should be able to see what the page is doing. However this requires some knowledge of the http protocol and status codes.
I could ask you to save the log as a .har file from the DevTools for others to examine. Problem is, this log will likely also contain your login and password. So you'll need to consider if it's worth it, maybe you can change the password afterwards. If the site is only available from the LAN side and not from the internet then it should be easier to do.
@Crimsonshade said in Flash applets can't be started since 2.7:
Sorry, i am a Miss Dragon
As I already said two posts ago though, this problem is resolved.
Nice to hear you had solved your issue it so easy.
@arnad I can confirm this bug on my installations.
If Google Chrome is installed Vivaldi detects the wrong version player and loads from from local profile folder of Chrome instead of using /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/libpepflashplayer.so.
Vivaldi did only work with flahs after i deleted ~/.config/google-chrome/PepperFlash/184.108.40.206/libpepflashplayer.so
But that breaks Google Chroem and Flash Player
Not nice for a web dev doing work on different browsers .
@TbGbe your reply was the first and you are correct. That was the problem. Thanks to you and everyone else who replied to my thread.
It was an extension named Pumpkin's Right Click Enable.
I thought I would be doing the same thing, as you said, when I opened a Private Browsing window and then uninstalled all extensions -- to avoid 'messing up' the extensions already there in 'normal' mode. But, after I did that Chrome extensions front-page was still blocked.
What worked: I opened the extension page in Vivaldi under a 'normal session' and moved all the blue-button sliders to the left.
Immediately, the Chrome extensions page appeared.
Returning to the extensions page I began moving the sliders back to the right, until one of them (once again) blocked the extensions page. It wasn't necessary to close the browser, restart, etc, because it happened immediately.
Pumpkin's Right Click Enable was uninstalled, and replaced with Allow Right-Click, which so far seems free from problems.
Welcome to the forums and enjoy Vivaldi Browser

I follow @kahukura it's something in your profile folder.
What Vivaldi version are you running? There was old issue during the start-up with the welcome page, not a foreigner web site.
