Vivaldi ignores Cookie settings for: Block cookies on [*.]

  • I have to detect that with the setting:

    • Allow local data to be set
    • Block third-Party cookies and site data
    • [*.] Block

    a cookie and Channel-ID from "" are set in cookie overview.
    This behavior happened twice since update to the newest stable build.


    In all old versions the setting was respected.

    Windows 7 Pro (x64) Vivaldi 1.5.658.44 (Stable channel) (x32)

  • I just realized this myself and it has NOT been addressed.
    Then I read the blog about them dissing Google for "Do No Evil"
    How can they say this when obviously there is something going on between Vivaldi and Google?
    I pulled it an went back to Pale moon. 10 months to address this issue is enough. There's some backroom collusion going on between them.

  • This is happening to me as well. Maybe i'm misunderstanding how [*.] works, because that's not a valid regexp, but that's how it suggests you block domains.

    Did you test if that works in Chrome 61? may the chromium code has a bug in blocking cookies.

  • My brother submitted the bug report.
    I tried going as far back as Vivaldi 1.4 and it still happens.
    There will be no Chrome browser in our house, sorry.
    I did find a news release of an Opera/Google partnership. I recognize some names here from that old team, maybe you guys are unwittingly "along for the ride" with this issue?
