    Cannot replicate. Please specify Vivaldi version number, platform, and any/all extensions being used.

    Thank you. Extensions?

    None of those particularly jump out at me as a likely reason for your problem.

    Refresh your profile and see if that fixes it. If so, re-install extensions one at a time and see if one breaks it.

  • It's been happening to me for the past few versions. I'm on 1.4.589 right now and it always comes up with a blank tab, and I have to reload my X number of tabs from the Trash.

  • I renamed my default folder and launched Vivaldi. The issue was gone. I then deleted the new Default folder and renamed the old one back. The problem is still gone, so I'm not sure what is happening.

    I had one theory that maybe it had to do with using the Signal web app. I have it open most of the time and thought maybe when I closed Vivaldi (it also closes Signal) that maybe that app was being considered the last tab open and that caused it to relaunch with one empty tab. I've tested closing Vivaldi with Signal open, and by closing Signal first. Neither have caused the issue to reoccur.

  • @gruberxx, @kauper, @Omen_20, check in the following Windows registry key:
    if you have Vivaldi autostart entry added, something like:
    Program Files (x86)\Vivaldi\Application\vivaldi.exe" –no-startup-window /prefetch:5"

    It was added by some extension. Remove it and restart Windows - restoring last session in Vivaldi will start to work again.
    It is already reported as VB-22058. Hopefully to be fixed sometime soon, watch out snaphots' changelogs…
