Cannot access new extensions through Vivaldi



  • The link to look for new extensions at the bottom of the Tools/Extensions page does nothing. I am running Vivaldi 1.8.770.56 on a MacBook running Mac OSX 10.12.4. Does anyone have a workaround?



  • "Get new extensions" points to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions?hl=en-US and seems to work for me, do you reach that link if you click it here?



  • Thanks! The link works perfectly from your post!

  • @Gwen-Dragon Tried reporting a bug but, after completing the bug report, got a message saying wrong captcha. Since I am absolutely convinced that two + seven = nine, there is little point in trying again!

    @bonsais I think you may have to give a numeric answer. I never had to enter a captcha at the bugreport page, so you may need a reputation point or two to get around that. I'll give you a couple.

    @bonsais The bug report page says:

    Please add these numbers: three + five

    You need to add the corresponding numbers and post the result as a numerical, not a word.

    @bonsais When I submitted bugs, I've spelled out my answers, so my response to "three + five" would have been eight. (My system language is English and I have a US keyboard.)

    Something looks seriously wrong and I'm not really sure what it is. Vivaldi 1.8 is now an old version. I would download Vivaldi 1.9 from https://vivaldi.com/download/ (and only from that site) using Safari. Once you've done that, remove /Applications/Vivaldi.app, reboot your system, and install the latest version of Vivaldi that you just downloaded to see if that works any better.

    Also, what is the language and keyboard type on your system?

    Thanks... and best of luck!
