Major issue with passwords
Okay, I already made a similar thread, but I wanted to start again because this to me is a very serious bug!
The passwords keep disappearing from my profile! One second they are there, the other they are not! I remove an extension = passwords disappear. I try to re-import them, nothing happens. I go to home/config/vivaldi, change it's name to "vivaldi.bak", re-import bookmarks and passwords, it works - I delete the new profile and go back to the old one, and passwords are there... I go to "clean cache/cookies in the past hour", passwords disappear...
So it's a major nuisance... And I really think it deserves looking into it. I'm using Linux Mint 18, Mate edition. 64 bit.
Update: Restarting the computer seems to be fixing the issue, though I am still not completely sure what is triggering it
You should inspect your running processes. There may be Vivaldi zombies from crashe browser sessions blocking the login database.
Open a shell
Show all running Vivaldi processes with
ps -aux | grep -i vivaldi
Terminate all running vivaldi processes
@Gwen-Dragon , thanks for answering! I'm afraid you'll have to explain that a bit better to me as I am a newbie when it comes to code and stuff.
I typed what you said in terminal and got the following "reply" - aliante 13980 0.0 0.0 15756 984 pts/1 S+ 16:17 0:00 grep --color=auto -i vivaldi
Does that mean anything to you?
If your passords cant be retrieved, you should close Vivaldi.
And check for rmeaing processes running in Background.
Yes, i try to explain it:
Start a shell
ps auxshows all running processes
the list is sent by a pipe | to the next program grep
grep -i vivaldifidna all text containing vivaldi, that means all processes from list generated by ps
aliante 13980 0.0 0.0 15756 984 pts/1 S+ 16:17 0:00 grep --color=auto -i vivaldi
That is only the grep process, no vivaldi processes running.
May be this helps:
- Open chrome://settings/search#background%20apps
- Deselect "Continue running background apps ...."
- Restart Vivaldi
@Gwen-Dragon try #killall vivaldi before you restart.
I use Lastpass and disable native password. Its a bit sluggish for some due to encryption but for those with patience or a zoomy connection it rocks.
What you told me to do... Made things worse. Now the bookmarks don't have icons even when I open them. And everything is messed up, and I keep getting crash/report windows...
That said, resetting the computer made everything good again... So yeah... Something weird is going on.
