@Dypsis The thread title is not deceptive. It is the thread announcing a new snapshot, and it mentions the chief feature the new snapshot is introducing.
Being the new snapshot thread, one of its purposes is to alert developers to things that got broken (regressions) that should be addressed before the new version moves to Stable. Your problem with extensions is one such. That's probably why it was moved here - not because extensions have anything to do with the bookmark bar, but because it's a problem that should be fixed in the Snapshots before 2.4 goes Stable.
@luetage The entry in status bar shows up for me now, but I have no idea how this happened, it's been several days, several computer restarts and countless openings/instances of the Vivaldi application – but today it works without me having changed a thing since originally enabling biscuit mode. I'm gonna add this to the bug message.
@jacekn: Still crashes, period! Not only when searching, but in curious moments. Unfortunately most of them seems to be related to mouse gestures: close tab and...crash, retry with the close tab button and...OK - of course this is not an accurate observation because the conditions are never the same but it's my feeling that mouse gestures (which I use extensively if not exclusively) are causing the problem.
@Diotima You can try it the other way around, in this blogpost there are download links, select the version (32 or 64bit) you like, download it and start the installation.
The installation program will notice that Vivaldi already is installed and will offer you an update button in the lower right corner.
@pesala: I'm not sure how else to describe the bookmarks issue. I tried disabling all extensions, and that made no difference. I always have a few pinned tabs open, if that matters.
As for the downloads panel context menu issue, I can be a little more descriptive. When you enable the floating panel and auto-close in the settings, you have to navigate to a different tab that isn't a Vivaldi internal page, open the downloads panel, then click somewhere that auto-closes it. The next time it is opened, the downloads, even inactive ones, have extreme difficulty getting the context menu to load when right clicking.
But if you don't leave the settings page when enabling floating+auto-close, and don't trigger it to auto close once, it behaves as expected. And on a Vivaldi page, it always works as expected. As soon as you trigger the auto-close on any non-Vivaldi page, the right click response in the download panel becomes very erratic.
Running Vivaldi Snapshot on Manjaro, Xfce edition, 64 bit. I had some issues last night trying to log into Pocket. When I would attempt to login through the Chrome store app, the web page would be completely black. It remained that way even if I entered the address manually. Nothing seemed to work. The browser crashed a few times. I had trouble logging in through the non-snapshot version as well.
