Return not working in address bar

  • Vivaldi 1.6.689.40 macOs 10.12.2

    This has been driving me nuts for a couple weeks now, as much as I like Vivaldi I may have to abandon it for a little while. About 75% of the time, after typing something (either a URL, a search query, anything) into the address bar, after I finish typing at hit return, nothing happens. I hit return 4 or 5 more times, still nothing. It's as if the key was never touched -- text stays there in the address bar, but nothing else changes or loads. Same behavior after browser restarts and reboots. Seems like this issue has come and gone a few times. Any suggestions?

    I have a large number of custom search engines -- if I should try a "restore default settings," is there any way for me to back these up? Inputting them manually when I came over from Chrome was quite an ordeal...
