Exporting bookmarks and settings?



  • I installed VIvaldi snapshot from my Linux repositories but now I want to uninstall and install Vivaldi stable. Will I need to export my bookmarks and settings somehow, or will the new install just remember?

    @WayneB: Linux sees the two streams as separate products. However, your user profile from either one will work in the other, and so can simply be copied over.

    It will be easy because it still same OS.

    Just copy your vivaldi-snapshot folder to vivaldi.

    If at start Vivaldi stable cried about the preference too new. Close Vivaldi.

    • Visit vivaldi folder.
    • Under Default folder move/rename Web Data & Web Data-journal files.

    The downside for deleting those files, you'll loose password & autofill collection, but Vivaldi won't cry again.

    Because current Snapshot Chromium version still close with current Vivaldi Chromium version, there won't be any crying problem. So, you won't loose passwords & autofill.

    Now, either you want to keep or delete vivaldi-snapshot folder is up to you.

    All of those were actually Chromium/Chrome method if you want to downgrade.

    Note:
    Don't try all of those if the target system is different on hardwares or OS.
