Crashing extentions



  • Not sure if this is the correct place to post problems with extension but if so the extensions shown in the screen shot crash. A very repeatable problem.

    Some Chrome extensions don´t work with Vivaldo, because Vivaldi isn´t Chrome. uBlock works well with Vivaldi, but for the others look for altenatives.

  • I realize that Vivaldi is not Chrome but it unclear to me of their intent or for that matter the purpose of this thread. Is the purpose just for users to communicate with each other which extensions work and which do not. Or, is the purpose to communicate to the Vivaldi developers the extensions that don't work so Vivaldi can be fixed so that they do work?

    The extensions that were listed in my screenshot didn't fail upon first use. They failed when I went to a specific web site and did something. I've been using Vivaldi for about 5 months as my primary Browser and these extensions have all been in there for a while. They all failed at the same time and caused V to shut down and it would not come up again (sometimes). Other times it would start but the extensions (especially Lastpass) wouldn't work. A reboot was necessary to get everything working again, which is unacceptable.

    For me if the LP extension is not reliable I will just stop using V, it's a show stopper. So, again is the purpose of this tread to notify the developers what is and what is not working or just to inform users. I've haven't seen anything that states it is V's intent to make their browser work such that at least most of the Chrome extensions work (100% might not be realistic). That's a big difference to me.

    It seems to me that if some posts that they are having a problem with an extension, and that

    1. the problem can be recreated,
    2. the developers want to make V. work so that most Chrome extensions will work,
    3. it is commonly used extension (like Lastpass),

    then they would want to know how to recreate the problem so they could fix whatever it is that was causing it and take whatgever action is needed to get that information.

    At this time I just don't know if the above is true. And quite honestly if the extension is important to me rather than look around for an alternative I'll just stop using V.



  • Sorry, I misunderstood your post, I thought that certain extensions did not work on Vivaldi, as some due to their own specifications browser other than Chrome and this can create some conflicts with the embedded functions.
    Another thing is that the extensions worked before and not now, this is of course a case that needs to be reported so that the team can recreate this ruling.

  • Not a problem. I probably wasn't very clear on that mostly because I wasn't sure of the purpose of this thread.

    How do I report this condition to the team? I didn't see any place to contact them directly so I posted it here with the hopes that someone from the team was monitoring it.
