Page contents not displayed after running on remote X server

  • I often run vivaldi in an X session on a remote computer, then close it there and start it in an X session on the local machine. It starts normally, showing all the toolbars, tabs, bookmarks, etc., including the page's title in the window's title bar (I'm using Native Window). But page contents are completely blank. Reloading the page or loading a new one yields the same result. No error messages are produced. Closing and restarting the browser fixes it.

    Rebooting the machine before running it locally doesn't prevent the problem, so I assume something left in my config directory is involved. The problem doesn't occur if the second machine is another remote machine.

    I'm using vivaldi-stable 1.9.818.50-1 on Debian jessie. Any workaround suggestions?

  • My workaround is to have my vivaldi startup script set a flag when appropriate, start the browser and have my window manager (fvwm) kill it when the window appears, then start it again normally.

    This appears to be a bug. Is there another place I should report it?
