Browser Crash

  • I've been using Vivaldi for the past several months and recently its been crashing. Was wondering how to solve this.

    What are you doing when it crashes? I have seen a few on dragging images on the page.

    Cleaning your user profile may help.

  • I'm not sure, it seems completely random.

  • Not sure if its appropriate to necro post but my browser is still crashing. I've tried refreshing it a few times and no dice.

  • More details are needed before anything can be suggested.

    What OS?
    What version of Vivaldi (see Help/About)?

    Not sure what you mean by refreshing, have you tried with clean profile (no extensions or imported bookmarks)?

    How many and what type of tabs open when crashing?

    If video related then post the first part of vivaldi://gpu

    I've tried several clean profiles without extensions, then without bookmarks, still crashes.

    As far as tabs I typically brows web forums, youtube, and my e-mail, and Vivaldi's crashed with each site.

    Why not try the new snapshot and see what that does?

  • what do you mean by snapshot?

    On the Blog, the developers publish a new build about once a week. They always have improvements over the latest stable version, and are usually very stable themselves. The most recent one with a direct download link would be on this blog page here:

    After you download and install that, you will also get another offer to update, which you can accept to see how the incremental updates will work.
