Can't turn off WebRTC

When I click the checkbox for disabling WebRTC broadcasting of IP, nothing happens.

Are you using the WebRTC Leak Prevent extension?
Disable the extension and you should be able to click the checkbox.

Thanks… I was having the same problem, and disabling that extension fixed things so the box could be checked. Because the WebRTC-blocking extension I'd been using (WebRTC Network Limiter) doesn't appear in the extension bar, I had forgotten it was there.

I just upgraded to 1.8, and cannot uncheck the WebRTC box. I couldn't even uncheck it BEFORE I got the WebRTC leak prevent extension. So I went and got the extension, tried to uncheck while enabled and disabled, and it will not uncheck in either case.
Other boxes uncheck just fine, just not that one. I was on 1.7 and don't remember if this box was checked or unchecked before the update, unfortunately.
EDIT: Please disregard. I found another thread that mentions the uBlock interference, so I'm trying that now. Sorry for the trouble!
As i remember some extensions block the change of Vivaldi's privacy settings related to WebRTC.
@Gwen-Dragon: Agrees with my recollection. Option is selectable unless you install an extension that takes it over - then you can no longer select it.

2 famous extensions uBlock0 (already mentioned) & Privacy Badger has toggle for WebRTC on/off. uMatrix also has it but it's settings structure probably not easy to recognized by non tech savvy.
Rule of thumbs; some extensions categorized/advertised as security or privacy concern could have that option.
