Memory leak

  • Hello,
    Since a few weeks I have memory leak with vivaldi browser 1.12.955.38 (Stable channel) (64 bits) on Linux Mint 17.1.
    Vivaldi's memory use all my memory and then all swap partition, it never ends. I need to kill Vivaldi.
    Does someone has the same problem ?
    What can I do ?
    Thanks in advance for your answer.
    Best regards

  • For me, the close symptom like op does caused by one of my extension. Happen in any Chromium based I test, only in Vivaldi it felt more noticeable maybe due its own UI. Note, Opera New suffer same thing like Vivaldi vs my extensions choice.

    Not a cure but work around/tips. I use another extension (yes, irony) that can turn off/on extension as group to calm down memory/resources use.

    Still, agree with the suggestion. Keep kicking that bug report for better build.

    Thanks for your answer. I think it was a bug but I can't report it !
    I've deleted all files in /tmp and /var/log ==> there is no more problem. Vivaldi works again.
