Vivaldi unresponsive due to too may tabs open
When my computer was on a high CPU load and swap usage I don't know what I did Vivaldi openned lots of help tabs. I had to kill the processes so that it would eat all my memory.
Now that I want to start it again all those tabs are openned too and I can't close them because Vivaldi is not responsive.
I want to open Vivaldi with no tabs but I don't know the command line switches.
What is the command line switch to open Vivaldi without any tabs?
There is a place where I can see the command line switches?
@johnny-unner Not sure what would open "help tabs" - except maybe a mis-behaving extension?
You could always try resetting your profile (which would "nuke" them all) as a test.
Simply rename your Default folder (so you can rename it back if necessary).
Before opening Vivaldi, you can rename/move files that named "Last Session" & Current Session". They're in your Vivaldi profile folder. There's also folder named "Session Storage", I never seen that folder matter, but usually I also rename/move it.
Vivaldi should start with empty window. Your last opened tabs should already in history list.
One hour later of opening Vivaldi it became usable again an I got to close all tabs to the right.
Later I tested your suggestion and it works.
Just curious: how many tabs did you have opened?
[...] open Vivaldi without any tabs?
I just had a similar problem
Another option is to edit the preferences file (backup! backup!)
Over here it is at
Near the end you'll find something like:
change "1" to "0":
(and have I already told you to backup?)
@rkzn What I have is:
Tried your approach. didn't work. I'm using vivaldi stable.
This is an issue.
I'm an Android developer and the Android builds uses a lot of memory. When swap is used for these builds my computer starts to run very slow. If I open a link from another application (Ex: Skype) that is meant to open in Vivaldi, this happens. It not every time. It's the second time for me unitl now.
