Vivaldi freezes when I try to install an extension, or enable/delete an installed one

  • I have three extensions installed in Vivaldi: Avira Browser Safety (disabled), Enhanced Steam (disabled), and uBlock Origin (enabled). Whenever I try to enable or delete any of the disabled extensions the browser freezes and I have to kill the task. It seems weird that it behaves like that. I just discovered that it also freezes and won't let me do anything when I try to install a Chrome extension. It stays on "checking" and the images in the page slide normally but I can't interact with anything.

    I'm on Windows 10, 64 bits. Cheers.

    @kamikaze15 You're the third person to make this type of (though not exactly the same) report.

    Can you let us know your Windows version, Vivaldi version number, and something about your hardware?

    Also, let us know if you use any 3rd party security software.
