[Bug] Vivaldi loses downloads with overly long file path



  • This problem occurs when you try to download a file with long name to a directory with long path. Vivaldi will initially download the file using a temporary .crdownload name and rename it to the final name after download finishes.

    If the final name would produce a file path that is over 256 characters long, the Windows limit, the downloaded file will vanish.

    Vivaldi should check in advance if the file path would be too long, or if the renaming fails Vivaldi should keep the .crdownload file.

  • this sounds more a implementation bug, if a filepath is longer than MAX_PATH (256+4=260 chars) the filename MUST be truncated else it can't be created on NTFS.
