Vivaldi randomly losing its vivaldiness
this has happened a few times now, with both latest "stable" and the preview version...
open vivaldi and its turned into chrome
re-install over the top fixes it, for a couple of days
note, i dont actually have chrome on my system anymore, removed it entirely to see if it fixed this issue. Its identifying as vivaldi, just lost all of vivaldi's settings.
@Dimspace: I would suspect one of your extensions of breaking this.
Happens if Vivaldi is started with extra command line switch
--appor if you or a extension activated some special chrome://flags like matarial… or something else.
hmm, only extensions i run

i have tweetdeck set up as an app launcher, so im guessing its that breaking it..
wondering if i close vivaldi but tweetdeck app version running that set the default for the next session.
It was also discussed here
In my work PC I tried it and I regretted it immediately, some setting got corrupted and I had to (at least) rebuild all my speed dial thumbnails.
I don't reccomend trying it unless you want to test and have no prolem in case you need to reinstall vivaldi from scratch
The safest (?) way to experiment with this glitch (--app=URL), is to use a "blank" standalone install; DON'T use your main one installation and don't enable sync
the safest for now is to avoid it like pest, until it's either fixed or removed for good.
