Stuck in Vivalid settings
Hi, Last time I closed Viviald in my Windows 7 system, the "Vivalid settings" windows still was open and this was the last I closed. Problem now is that when starting Vivalid again, the only thing that comes up is Vivalid settings. Browser is gone (or hidden) and I am stuck in settings. Closing Viviald settings closes everything. Seems that Vivalid have saved where I was last time ? Anyone have a suggestion on reset this ? I use Vivaldi_TP_18.104.22.168 on a Windows 7, 64 bit system. For several days now I have used the browser both in W7 and Kubuntu 14.04/64 and so far I like most of what I have experienced, new speed dial is one of the things. Of course I miss my mail and plugins, and all the time I tries to open a new tab with "line down" mouse gesture with no response... What I like the least is the Googles web engine. My favourite browser until now is Opera 12.17 that slowly is dyeing, hopefully Viviald can replace it, not Firefox ? Regards Morten
The "sticking" in Settings was a known bug, which has been fixed in the latest, just-released snapshot version. Try downloading and installing that over top of your earlier version.
Thanks, this fixed the problem. Although it installed Vivaldi twice (did not delete version 22.214.171.124) but I assume that is a beta issue and will be better in the future. I simply did a uninstall without deleting my browser data and installed 126.96.36.199_snapshot again and program folder then was a clean install. (I guess this is just me being such a control freak with all my computers, sorry )
… it installed Vivaldi twice (did not delete version 188.8.131.52) but I assume that is a beta issue and will be better in the future. I simply did a uninstall without deleting my browser data and installed 184.108.40.206_snapshot again ...
That's a bit curious, and the first such report I've seen. I use a stand-alone installation, and the updated version installed right over top of the original one… so no uninstall was needed.
After installing installing "vivaldi.220.127.116.11_snapshot", In folder "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application" I got new folder "18.104.22.168" where this last .exe was installed, but also folder "22.214.171.124" was kept there with all .exe and .dll intact. An uninstall removed both program folders in "~\Local\Vivaldi\Application" only leaving "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data". A second install of 126.96.36.199 then gave a clean install.
Picture of how it now looks is added
Best Regards, Morten
Just to make sure I was not misleading anyone, I uninstalled Vivaldi again. Then installed version 188.8.131.52, then over it 184.108.40.206_snapshot. As picture show, I then got two program folder, both with about 266 Mbytes of program data.
I then uninstalled Vivaldi again, both folder where gone, and I installed 220.127.116.11_snapshot and got a clean install.
That's is how Chrome, Opium and most of the Chromium based browser are working.
If you are using one of them just look on the related directories…
