Bug or feature? login blocks other operations
I closed vivaldi with some open windows, some of which required login and password. When I restarted vivaldi, it re-created those windows. I wanted to close them, but one window required a login. It was impossible to close that window without clicking "cancel" on the login first. Is there a reason why the window is not reacting anymore when a login is required? The login in question was on a BSCW server (public.bscw.de/pub/index.html.en)
What's your distro?
See if helps: type vivaldi://version to see the path of the Profile Folder.
Close Vivaldi, navigate to the Profile Folder and delete the following files:
@lamarca opensuse & kwin5 5.8.7-2.1 and no, once I "cancel" on the login-form, the browser reacts again.
the browser reacts again
Even after deleting those files?
@lamarca no, even without deleting those files. The question is only if a login form should block closing a tab and make the browser not react anymore. Hitting "cancel" on the login form removes the blocking situation without having to delete those files
Have you tried to delete that login on: chrome://settings/passwords
Hitting Esc should cancel such "blockade" at all.
If one window does not react, the website forcing a login behaves bad and may have generated a redirect loop consuming too much resources.
