The browser disappears

  • ...after three seconds. Why and what is to be done ?

  • Sounds like you have an extension which is crashing Vivaldi.

    Try with a clean (empty) profile.

  • Thanks for the answer.
    But I cannot use vivaldi://about because Vivaldi closes immediately.

    What OS do you have pethorl? If you've done an all user install, in the default location finding the profile folder shouldn't be too hard 🙂

  • Vivaldi Team

    As for examply mine is placed in: C:\Users\PÃ¥l\AppData\Local\Vivaldi
    on my w10.
    So what you do is change out "C:" with whatever is your drive(its usually the default), then change out "PÃ¥l" with your PC user name. That should lead you to your Vivaldi profile.
    (You can also just navigate there manually if you don't wanna type it in.)

    Hope this helps!

  • @Aronand I have Windows 10. I just uninstalled Vivaldi and installed it again. Did not help.

    @pethorl - Uninstall and reinstall won't do anything as a rule. You have to actually remove, rename, or move your profile folder. Have you done this? Do you know how to do this?

    @Aronand You can type %localappdata% in the windows explorer address bar and start from there. 😉

    @pethorl If the issue is actually caused by an extension, you could try removing all files from %localappdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Extensions\ before performing a full profile reset. You could also try removing folders one by one in order to eliminate which extension is the one causing the troubles.
    I haven't tested it though and I don't know if this could cause any further damage to your profile, but I assumed that losing only some of your data is better than losing it all. 🙂

    I'm not sure if I gave you the correct (default) path to the extensions folder, as I'm using the standalone installation of Vivaldi and I had to guess. I'd appreciate if someone could confirm this, or correct me if I'm wrong. 🙂

  • @Aronand After I have uninstalled Vivaldi I write Vivaldi in the search window in the left corner. Does then not find Vivaldi or traces of it.

    Thanks. Now I found the whole bunch of it all and deleted.
    Downloaded it again and the browser remains without disappearing.
    The only extensions I had added before was related to RSS. Two extensions.
    I missed in Vivaldi what comes default in Mozilla Firefox regarding RSS. One does not to look for extensions to see RSS like it should be.
