New update corrupts.



  • After updating my instillation it becomes corrupt and any attempt to re-install leads t o the same issue. It appears to be running in task manager but barely. This is a rather big issue as Vivaldi is now my main browser as it is awesome and I've had to reinstall Edge to Write this. Please... [u]help[/u]? Maybe..?



  • Hi, this should fix your issue:

    You loose passwords and extensions but get back a clean profile.

  • I have tried this multiple times, however it still breaks. And due to the nature of the issue i cant delete the all the files.



  • Are you sure there aren't any vivaldi.exe in memory? Happens sometimes that closing vivaldi doesn't actually close all resident processes which are still doing "something", ctrl-shift-esc and see the running processes, and in case, terminate all Vivaldi.exe occurrences.



  • Yep. no sign of it anywhere. This is driving me nuts.

    What sort of platform are you on? Yours is a pretty specific and unique bug - especially given that refreshing your profile doesn't seem to help. THAT is a very reliable cure-all. So there is something goofy with your system, given that no one else has reported this precise bug. Ever.



  • And due to the nature of the issue i cant delete the all the files.

    Does this mean you delete not all files from your profile?

    Cheers, mib



  • Ive managed to fix it. It turns out my ssd had chosen to corrupt that one folder and nothing else. So i ran chkdsk and that sorted it. I have since moved Vivaldi to my hdd until my ssd earns my trust back.



  • I'm both glad to hear it wasn't vivaldi's fault and sorry for your SSD drive :huh:
