bookmark loss :(
hi, vivaldi just told me to update my browser to a newer version. it automatically downloaded the installer, then told me it could not extract the archive and install. aha! so I did it manually. vivialdi.com, download &install.
now all my bookmarks & quick-startpage-links (whatever they are called) are all gone (an my open tabs, which is also bad but at least tolerable or expectable).
how can I get my bookmarks back, did it just seriously overwrite them? I just can believe it?
version is now 1.8.770.50.
it think it choose automatically 32bit version (page just suggested DOWNLOAD and I was dumb enough to do if from the front page, forgetting it might be 32bit, before i had 64.
I now installed 64 over 32, but with no difference regarding my lost bookmarks. ugh!
OK, I could reimport my bookmarks from the bookmarks tab, choosing import from Vivaldi. (?!)
Location was \username\appdata\vivaldi..
Where is the current bookmark-Location suddenly, if not under the same folder any more? Can somebody shed light on my confusion?

Did you alter any settings upon installing Vivaldi manually (in the program installer itself)? All of your data should remain by default. I know it's probably too late, but you could've just relaunch Vivaldi and check for updates manually - it should download the whole installer and update successfully...
I went with the defaul settings, assuming it would choose the same folders etc. as previously. I suspect that the 32/64 thing might have mixed it up.
@1001001001: Your old folder is still where it was. By using default settings, you moved your install to User/appdata/Local/Vivaldi.
