@Etay said in Vivaldi ( Check for updates ) - through http proxy - Error : [ Appcast XML data incomplete ]:
As a programmer, I think that the proxy is not defined in the pulling updates service
( it does not use Vivaldi's main proxy but uses standalone request which does not include the proxy ) .
I will ask internally.
The updater should use the proxy settings from Windows. If that asks for a password, there should be a popup asking the user to enter one.
@exist2resist said in Vivaldi caching issues. Holding on too cached version for too long.:
It has come to the point where when I change an nginx setting on a reverse proxy 6 days later it still remembers the old version and displays the wrong page.
I do not know which HTTP headers you use in your NGinx to change/set HTTP Server's caching in browser.
Sorry, but we can not test you unknown server setup and pages.
I checked 3.5.2115.81 Stable on several Apache servers of my customers (running mod_proxy) and all was fine.
May be your issue is a bug.
Help us reproduce your issue
How to report a bug for Vivaldi
carefully and report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.
Again thank you for using Vivaldi.
@dmocek said in Vivaldi not connecting through proxy when launched via gui:
I solved this problem in both Vivaldi and Chrome by launching both with the --proxy-auto-detect command-line parameter. With this, it picked up on the system proxy setting and I didn't have to mess with setting http_proxy anywhere.
Ah, interesting. This is a useful information for others 👍
I gonna tag your answer as a solution.
I found the proxy-config link on the Chrome chrome://about page. Vivaldi has no such link on vivaldi://about.
Some internal links have to be converted to vivaldi://-links. That is in progress.
Just for the reference in case anyone was looking for a more clear explanation:
this came from decision in here, and it may still have a workaround via cmdline flags
the official statement is that file:// handlers for PAC will be deprecated very soon, and you should use http[s]:// locations for PAC rule files if you need them (either web-servers or simple scripts in languages that support basic socket operations will work)
As of myself, I brought up a super-simple lighttpd config that serves my PAC files from localhost.
@coleslaw said in Обход блокировки РКН с помощью PAC-файла, без установки какого-либо расширения.:
видео на странице, по не понятным причинам, само разблокировалось.
Эта ситуация имеет привычку повторяться. Случайно открыл из истории страницу с сериалом - "недоступно в вашем регионе". Минут через 5-10 без всяких усилий, само по себе заработало.
You can close this topic unless someone else is interested in it. I installed Windows 7 again because I was fed up with this and other issues/bugs in Windows 10. On Windows 7 Vivaldi/Chromium is working fine as it should be.
Settings for selected domains and URLs have to be done with a autoproxy config (PAC file) in your Windows proxy config.

On Windows you can set a local proxy config file for yourself as a user with file:/// URL in your Windows proxy settings.
Switching of only one tab might be problematic because, if I understand the process model correctly, the main process is the one that tells the others what to do, the renderer processes only render the stuff and execute JS etc.
... but maybe the following command line switches can help you in the meantime:
Name says all
Don't use a proxy server, always make direct connections. Overrides any other proxy server flags that are passed.
Specifies a list of hosts for whom proxy settings are bypassed and use direct connections. Ignored if --proxy-auto-detect or --no-proxy-server are also specified. This is a comma-separated list of bypass rules.
Uses the pac script at the given URL
Uses a specified proxy server, overrides system settings. This switch only affects HTTP and HTTPS requests
