Vivaldi on Win10 Pro - tabs are not restored after OS restart



  • Hello, I have a problem with desctop Vivaldi on Windows 10 Pro.

    Actions I perform

    1. Open Vivaldi browser, open 10+ tabs
    2. Send Windows Pro to hibernate
    3. Wake up OS from hibernate
    4. Reopen Vivaldi browser and work again for some time
    5. Restart OS (but do not close Vivaldi manually)
    6. Open Vivaldi browser after restart

    What is expected
    Vivaldi automatically restores tabs after waking up from hibernate and after restart

    What is really happening
    Vivaldi is normally restoring tabs after hibernate. Even if you close the browser.
    Vivaldi opens only one blank tab with speed dial after OS restart. Even if you pinn the tab.

    There is no settings that can set up this behavior so I think this is a bug.
    It's really annoying because Windows restarts system by itself when update is comming and you must manually restore all the tabs you need for your work afterwards.

    Cant confirm such issue on Windwos 10 x64 Pro 1703. Just tested.

    Perhaps the powersaving settings for hibernation have a bug on your Windows version or a BIOS bug.

    Thank's for reply.

    I don't think it's a hardware issue because FireFox 54 installed on the same PC restores it's tabs well.

    I've tested this issue on the same OS at home and I also couldn't reproduce it.

    Does it matter under which user the browser is installed (Administrator/User)?
    May be there is some issue in saving the session under Windows user profile or something.

    Can somebody explain how does Vivaldi stores current session data while working? If it cannot write session or load it agait then does it logs this information somewhere?
    Is there any possibility to see the session state file?

    The session data is saved in Vivaldi profile dir in files named like Current*and Last*

    For Windows errors you may inspect some in Windows event manager.

    I tested it with Vivaldi 1.10 installed as "Install For all Users" on Windows Admin and regular user account. No session loss.
    Tried it with Windows shutdown menu save energy mode and Hibernation with shutdown /h from DOS window.
