After Update: Google Hangouts app confusions

  • After the latest Update I have issues with the hangouts app.
    The app opens the normal app window, but doesn't show anything in it.

    Instead it opens another browser instance with the url: chrome-extension://nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd/mainapp.html?uv_main_window

    There is the hangouts app displayd.
    The problem: If I close the Hangouts app window (empty one) all three windows close and vivaldi is shut down.

    If I close the second browser instance: same happens.
    If I close only the hangouts tab: same issue.

    Hangouts is not usable this way and it is a big pain in the neck.


  • Agreed. I'm experiencing the same problems.

    I'll add something more: when I try to disable or remove the older Hangouts extension (of which I have two versions in the list), Vivaldi restarts.

    Very strange and very annoying, too.

  • Same issue. Closing and reopening will fix it most of the time for me, but it is very annoying.

  • For me closing and reopening doesn't work anymore. Vivaldi is closing as soon as I close the Hangouts window. Links in Hangouts open a new empty Tab the only way to open links is right-click and selecting "open link in new tab".

    As I'm using hangouts for my everyday work, vivaldi is pretty unusable for me now. If the hangouts issues are fixed I'll get back to Vivaldi. Maybe...
