ancient noob found wandering deep hierarchy - believed to be harmless
I hope to cause no offense. I am new here. I just finally managed to register.
I am using Vivalde 1.9.818.49 (Stable channel) (32-bit) with Adguard and Scriptsafe on Windows 7 pro.
I couldn't manage to register using V -- no captcha was displayed.
I managed to register using Opera 12.
Is this a security feature?
I have been using Opera since the 1990's, with a receipt for buying an Opera 4 licence in 2000.
I don't remember why I gave up on opera after 12.
Does Vivaldi have anything like "about::config" in Firefox and Palemoon?
Is there a way to swap a complete set of key bindings? I would like to be able to try a set matching Opera 12 or Palemoon, but revert if something went wrong.
Apologies for asking all these questions. A bit of advice on where to take all this might be in order.

The captcha probably don't work due adguard or scriptsafe; try to disable them for the page in which is not shown and see if it works.
Some pages with such extensions on - looks broken (in case of vivaldi page, it's strange however).
vivaldi://flags/is the equivalent of about:config in chromium based browsers
In vivaldi options (alt+P) you can choose key bindings (keyboard section), down there is a button to revert changes in case don't work as you expect.
In privacy section check also if the cookies are enabled for third parties - often disabling them can break site functions: login, registrations, and maybe captchas too.
Thanks for the information.
"vivaldi://flags/" is a lot scarier than Mozilla's "about:config", which is mostly things they couldn't be bothered to expose through a GUI.
"Opera 12> Preferences> Advanced> Shortcuts> Keyboard Setup" allows one to save/restore a complete set of key bindings by name. I had forgotten how many editable bindings it allows to be edited.
Again, thanks. I'll stop mithering you now.
The user is a peripheral that types when you issue a read request.
About this, only some of them could be useful in vivaldi.
They are "just" for chromium engine - which moves also vivaldi - but flags that relay on some chrome exclusive functions - like sync, npapi and the chrome UI itself, WON'T work in vivaldi or could lead to unexpected things.
Avoid any un-necessary change there.

I don't think keys can be exported/imported as a file yet.
Third party cookies are mostly ancient, evil tracking/stalking tools.
True. However, several legit sites relay on them and simply don't work, or work partially without 3rd parties.
One of the worst offenders as far as requiring third-party cookies is (not surprisingly) Google - their services have so many different domain names that you'll need to authorize, but they also try to track you everywhere. Not that I really think Yahoo or Bing (Microsoft) is any better.
I use this to handle my 1st and 3rd party cookies; it allows to store only the ones you want to keep and remove the others according to extension settings.
