Download shows Blank page



  • When I click on a link to download a file Vivaldi displays a blank tab in the existing tab and to get back to the previous page I have to click on the rewind icon as the back arrow is grayed out. Is there a way to have it just download in the background and not go to the blank tab? I don't remember it doing this before I updated. I have download settings to always download to a specific folder and unchecked Open Download Panel Automatically. Windows 10, Vivaldi 1.3.551.30 - 32bit

  • Hello,

    me too i have this bug since upgrade to vivaldi 1.3 (on windows 7 entreprise 64b)
    it was systematical: impossible to download anymore any file :angry:
    i have installed the patch from http://justdanpo.ru/vivaldi (select emptypage_fix_patch)
    and it solved the issue.
    thanks to justdanpo! :cheer:
    but because the patch is from the outside of vivaldi team… :unsure: i think this is urgent to fix this bug in an official vivaldi delivery!



  • Thank you. That worked.

    Since I don't know what else may have been impacted by the bundle.js and I'm new to Vivaldi I decided for now to revert back to the previous version and wait for an official fix. I've kept the bundle.js workaround and will look into what it adds so I may update to latest Vivaldi version anyway.

    It not adds, it replaces: https://github.com/justdanpo/VivaldiPatches/blob/master/src/1.3.551.30/emptypage_fix.patch



  • It looked like it added/changed some other features - at least that's what I read from the page where I downloaded it. did I misread?

    BTW, I am reinstalling 1.3 and using the bundle.js fix anyway.



  • you can select the options you want, you can even try each one separately and then keep the ones you like.



  • Doesn't make any difference for me, sadly…



  • what doesn't work for you exactly? have you replaced your bundle.js with the one downloaded from
    http://justdanpo.ru/vivaldi
    after selecting emptypage_fix_patch ?



  • Everything was selected. I replaced the file inside C:\Users-my-username-\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application\1.3.551.30\resources\vivaldi, I restarted the browser and I saw the same behaviour (blank screen after downloading some drivers off HP's website). After that I uninstalled Vivaldi and deleted every folder it created (and cleaned the registry using CCleaner) and reinstalled it without extensions. I also replaced the bundle.js file.

    Now it doesn't give me a blank screen anymore when downloading, but I still have issues like the one I have reported here.



  • Fixed in Snapshot 1.3.551.37, stable release fix is incoming.
