Blank screen, can't do anything after the update.
I was using vivaldi for a long time, i updated it today and got this blank screen. There is nothing but white everywhere. I did reinstall, pc reboot, running as an admin.
Perhaps your session files are broken. :(
Open Windows Taskmanager
Watch for running Vivaldi processes and terminate them
Open your profile at
Delete files Current Tabs , Last Tabs , Last Session , Current Session
I tried and that's what i got from every single file: Probably the element is no longer in C: \ MATI \ AppData \ Local \ Vivaldi \ User Data \ Default. As i said, i reinstalled it a few times with different versions, i couldn't start a session, so there won't be any files.
May that happend to be a broken Vivaldi profile :(
Sorry to hear about such trouble.
- Backup your old data from %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default
- Reset profile as described in https://help.vivaldi.com/article/full-reset-of-vivaldi/
- You may restore the important files Bookmarks, Notes, Login Data and copy them to new profile at %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\
- You have to reinstall extensions (if you have any)
- You have to redo your Settings
Does this help?
Well, i couldn't reset profile because all i see is a white square that should be the browser itself, but i deleted everything that is connected to vivaldi, then reinstalled it again and it works now fine, now i have to get my bookmarks from the copy you told me to do and set my themes and extensions again.
Thank you very much for your time, i appreciate it.

For those who come upon this thread with the same problem, before going full nuclear on the profile as a whole, try replacing just browser.html in the profile.
That was the cause of it for me. When I was modifying it, I accidentally used an old version of that file which was missing some lines. A white screen ensued upon restart. I imagine if browser.html was somehow corrupted on an upgrade, or in some other way, the same thing would happen.
