@Gwen-Dragon I figured out what it was after I searched for something on Google and noticed that Google thought I was in the United Arab Emirates. I just signed up with NordVPN, and it's been behaving weirdly. Even though my IP address was supposedly in SEATTLE, Google was thinking I was in the UAE for some reason. When I disconnected and reconnected, my location was changed back to the United States.
@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.

are you OK with Tom, Dick and Harry buying far more personal info about you
I don't have any economic loss if they do so, if anything, they are just profiling which ads I might be interested in. All they know about "me" is that from this IP I visit some site and do some searches.
Too bad for them, I block all ads with uBlock Origin, they can try all they want but I don't even see the ads they're trying to feed me.
I really don't know what people have to fear if they gather statistics on what I visit. Quoting the article: "That data was not seen by him but could have included information about age and gender, habits, social media usage, ethnicity or political affiliation, he said."
And who cares? Only people that HAVE something to hide. They better not use the internet. I don't fear anyone who knows my age and gender, why should I? You can even see my age on my profile here. Now tell me, that it's a google problem? Or it's Vivaldi that shouldn't allow me to tell others which is my birthdate? Because it's a "sensitive info"? Of course I can tell you a secret: I don't use my birthdate as a PIN/Password, who does it's just an idiot and DESERVE to be ripped off if he does 😃
Comprueba en un perfil llamado Test por ejemplo.
Si funciona, borra Cookies y cache de esos sitios.
Si se repite, desactiva Extensiones, quizás alguna lo provoque.
No sé, en mi caso lo de G sucede en ocasiones usando VPNs, mira a ver si es tu caso.

a safer program
I see there may be a misunderstanding here. Unlike google's solution, It's not a program, it's literally just a text file containing the hashes of leaked passwords.
If you check your password (hash) and it is in the text file, your password has been leaked somewhere. No phoning home to any services or running exes required.
This is what a section of the file looks like:
Basically, it means that 11 people have used a leaked password with that hash value, so it would not be recommended for use as it is no longer unique and secure.
I tried your page with one of my passwords
I use for passwords other than 1234
@shalom938 This will not be happening. Vivaldi will not join the Borg (and surrender all your data to them). So to sync, I am afraid you will have to use Vivaldi's proprietary system - for better or for worse.

But if course, grumble knows all. Can even read your minds (I wear a tinfoil hat).
@garlicbread8473 This has been discussed extensively in the forums and "solved" for the time being over the last several days. My guess is that a search of the forum before posting might have found the topic(s) where that's been done.
Until new builds come out with a solution, go to vivaldi://flags and reset the identity consistency flag to "Enabled DICE (fix auth errors)" This is a bug that was introduced by a Chrome strategy to collect Google account data in Chromium-based browsers. Vivaldi doesn't permit the strategy.
As the snapshots are now on v72, you can start to use these tools. They can be found at vivaldi://extensions.
If you click to see the details of an extension that tries to the "All sites" permission, you can restrict it as follows:
@tonyrulez there's an odd way to login with these plugin into google drive: simply choose "use another account" and fill the fileds with the same data again, it will login to the account. (at least it worked for me this way a few minutes ago).
Maybe it works with other Google-related plugins too...
@becm said in YouTube Side Panel doesn't work properly (redirect to desktop version):
@if-sergiy the problem only exists if the mode is set explicitly in the youtube cookie (PREF → app=desktop).
By default no mode is preselected and YouTube shows different modes for side panel (mobile version) and main page. So if the mode is never set explicitly the problem does not exist and can not be reproduced.
Clearing the YouTube-cookie (Settings → privacy → cookies → .youtube.com → PREF), you will lose some YT-related settings and current login state) and never explicitly set the mode might be the only viable way to avoid the problem. All (future) technical fixes (from the browser side) will break other functionality.
If you switch the side panel to desktop and back to mobile mode it may take some requests (maybe referrer related) to settle all views on the new mode.
thanks dude! that really help me. thanks a lot
