Double startup of Vivaldi chokes extensions
Sometimes, Vivaldi starts up with a series of notification messages about the Extensions not being able to load properly. For each extension in my Vivaldi setup (Xmarks, LastPass, uBlock origin, Flip Clock) I get a seperate notification popup near the Systray, similar to the Windows 10 notifications.
This morning it happened again and I was able to understand a little bit more about the circumstances under which this may occur.
- Vivaldi was not running
- I started the installation of a program that I had downloaded earlier
- After the last step in the installation process (hitting OK), I decided that I wanted to check the internet for more possible program updates. So I manually started Vivaldi.
- At about the same time, the installer had completed its task and felt it neccessary to take me to its homepage. Vivaldi was started a second time.
- I think that in the double startup of Vivaldi, the loading of extensions for these two instances goes wrong.
