Working like a charm on version 3.5.2115.81 installed just now. Thank you SO much, I absolutely need this site to stay sane and was resorting to using it on another browser in the background.
Have a wonderful day!

Hi, if you have a Windows 7/10 Pro key you can upgrade.
There are several instructions in the net how to do it, search for windows 10n to pro, for example. In short, you have change the key in Management > Info section, iirc.
Pettern seems to be correct.
MS upgraded my X64 Windows 10 Enterprise N to Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 last night, and this morning Vivaldi went to the pale V splash screen and then disappeared without trace. Several times.
So then I upgraded Vivaldi to the latest version , and as egigoka put it so well:
Install Vivaldi 3.1+
Try to open
Expected behavior: browser opens
Experienced behavior: opens windows with Vivaldi logo and no interface for couple of seconds and closes...
After searching for a while here, I realised that it HAD to relate to something of MS's upgrade, and went looking there (Technet) , to discover that Win 10 N versions do not include the Media Feature Pack; it has to be installed separately.
So I did, and Vivaldi is back! Thank you all.
Posting this in the hope that it will help others to a speedier resolution...
Note that other than installing the latest version, I have done nothing to Vivaldi itself.
Vivaldi 3.1.1929.45 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
OS Windows 10 OS Version 2004 (Build 19041.388)
@Gwen-Dragon When looking at the reports directory again today, I noticed that the earliest reports were now from May 1, so there definitely is some automatic culling done of the oldest files in that dir (I would suggest more than 2 days-worth be left in there--or at least maintain a log somewhere).
This means that I don't know when this started, since I seldom look there. It couldn't have been THAT long ago, but certainly possibly before 3.0.
So picking up on your extensions idea, I found through the process of elimination that it's caused by running both Google Docs Offline 1.10.0 and one other extension. Disabling one or the other works around the problem. Not sure it's worth reporting in that case. FWIW, it doesn't reproduce in Chrome 83.0.4103.34.
Update: Uninstalling/reinstalling Google Docs Offline seems to fix this issue.
Update 2: But it eventually recurs later.
@awgn Pleasure to have been of assistance.
When an Android app suddenly starts misbehaving, usually something has gone amiss between app and Android. Clearing the cache and other app storage in combination with uninstall/reinstall usually is the first remedy.
Might I suggest that you edit the original posting in this thread, rewording the title into something that does not suggest a relation between the new ad/tracking blocker and the crashes you have been experiencing, and/or add "(resolved)" to the title. It may make it easier for others to navigate this forum in search for answers instead of problems.
@Gwen-Dragon Yes, it does. I tried it before coming here, the developers responded to my bug report this morning to say this release had fixed it. I think this item in the release notes:
[Crash][Extensions] Crash opening a link with basic auth when a password manager is installed (VB-65003)
Is probably the bug fix that is related, both of those sites I mentioned pop up password entry field over the page, which I think is basic auth. It is interesting that in my case the password manager (last pass) did not cause the crash, while privacy badger did, but working again now. Thanks for your feedback on this.
Has there been any movement on this. There has been a few updates to Vivaldi and still no mention of this.
It is still on going, and it seems to really happen / trigger upon clicking on links within the page that open a new tab. I noticed that as @LonM mentioned, other tabs are incredibly slow to load some times. I have been tempted so many times to go back to chrome. I really don't want to, but this workflow is killing me.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also @AGoodGeek's workaround didn't work unfortunately. So i have stuck to cloning the tab and closing the old infected one.
Thank you again!
@TwisterMc Crashes on close are different from those that occur during normal browsing because they trigger when Vivaldi is trying to shut itself down and get itself into a clean state for the next launch. Is your crash related to extensions? Some have reported issues with 1Password triggering crashes in Vivaldi.
Please file a bug report for this crash along with any other information that you can provide to recreate the crash, and be sure to attach a copy of the crash log to your bug confirmation email. The crash logs can be found by opening Console.appand going to the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.
FYI, internally, we try to document steps-to-reproduce that start with a clean/default installation, then changes to settings and flags, then add extensions, then any other actions that are needed to set up the crash after launching the browser. The developers then trigger and debug the crash in their development environment.
