Addition of login feature should be the next step for Vivaldi and some other suggestions.



  • Like in Chrome, a login option would be incredibly useful for people who would be moving from one device to another to access Vivaldi. Currently, as this option isn't present, if I uninstall and reinstall Vivaldi, all my saved options and extensions would probably be gone (not sure if I am right about it; if not, please clarify that). Having a login option which would keep all the changes and additions one makes and carries it forward to multiple devices would be a very valuable option. I hope the developer team would think about adding this feature in the upcoming versions. Some other suggestions- On clicking the icon in the taskbar, it takes more time than Chrome just to startup (not actually opening the homepage). It just bugs me like crazy to wait the additional time to see my homepage load. The cursor doesn't disappear after a while when YouTube is in full screen mode. This is a very simple thing and shouldn't be a problem in the future. I hope the developer team considers some of the suggestions an further enhances the browser. Thanks to the developers for creating this awesome browser and hope the future versions would bring a lot more improvements and success!

    This requires a "sync" feature which is not yet available, but is currently being worked on.

    Extensions and Passwords are linked with computer and username, so those will be lost when trying to copy to another.
    Others things "should" be OK, but I haven't tried it personally.

    This can sometimes be caused by your profile. You could try a clean profile check to see if it improves.
    Check Help/About for the path of your Profile.
    Close Vivaldi.
    Rename the Folder - e.g. Default.Saved - so that nothing is lost.
    Restart Vivaldi (a new Default folder will be created automatically) and check.
    If it makes no difference, then just delete the new Default and rename the old one back.
    Note: If the new profile solves the problem. Any Extensions used will have to be reinstalled (one at a time and recheck after each). Bookmarks files etc. can just be copied from the saved profile to the new one.

    This is a "known" regression (although how simple it is would be a matter of opinion). Keep and eye on new 1.3 snapshots to see when it is fixed https://vivaldi.net
