Crash on Launch



  • I get the following crash log when I launch Vivaldi on my Mac (Sierra 10.11.6). After a reboot, I can launch it once again, but later launches fail again.

  • Running latest version of Vivaldi, a re-install does not help... does not seem to be permissions related as some have alluded to in other forum posts.

    @kedgar: Re-installing rarely has any effect at all. The fault is pretty much never in the actual application itself. However, refreshing your profile may do the trick. The profile is where troubles start and end - and reinstalling does not touch the profile.

    @kedgar macOS 10.12.6 is still in beta. If cleaning/refreshing your profile doesn't fix the problem, you should report the incompatibility to Apple via the Feedback Assistant so that they can address the issue.

    If you want to start with a totally clean slate, you can also delete all of Vivaldi's configuration files and history; the files are all stored in various subdirectories of ~/Library. If you need further assistance in doing this, just let us know and we'll do our best to help.

    @kedgar I also noticed that you have System Integrity Protection disabled on your system. Is there any reason for this?

    Another source of crashes with Vivaldi are buggy (or legacy) user mode USB drivers, which can have bad interactions with the macOS IOKit USB framework which, in turn, is used by the underlying Chromium codebase for WebUSB. (Bugs in kernel extensions can also trigger a kernel panic that bring down your whole system.) I didn't see any such calls in the backtrace but this could have also been a precursor to the crash.



  • Thanks everyone, I removed the profile from ~/Library/Application\ Support as well as ~/Library/Preferences/com.vivaldi.Vivaldi.plist. Seems to have done the trick for now.
