All extensions has deleted without a reason



  • Please help me, I have restarted the computer, but Vivladi has lost his mind and memories and when I opened it did not keep any extensions, it's empty.

    Some other settings, but not all of them has been deleted as well such as Zoom-Level for UI and webpages.

    What has just happened? Some problems with Vivaldi stability is the biggest issue I have all the time, neither of other browsers has this behavior.

    How can I at least recover the extension names? I don't remember them all. I had like 10 extensions.



  • If extension are still in the profile folder you should see their ID in this folder
    \Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Extensions
    (Default only if you not changed profile)
    Then, go to store and paste the IDs (folder names) in search and should be redirected to the extension you had.



  • Additionally, to mitigate somewhat against potential future repeats, you might want to ensure the following switch is OFF, in chrome://settings

    EDIT: Aaah, i gave the Linux address, presumably some Windows wiz will post soon to advise if those should be back-slashes not fwd-slashes, given you use Windows [feeling too lazy to fire up my Win10 VM to check now, sorry].

    That's fine (Win 10 Pro), be aware the System setting is under "Advanced".



  • Where is that folder in Windows 10?
    I remember Vivaldi has installed to AppData for some reason and did not create the shortcut, I was able to run it from search bar Cortana.

    @smbv "That" folder? which folder? There is no "Advanced" folder in Windows, but there a (Windows System) set of settings under the "advanced" label.

    There is a Chrome://settings page that you can call up in Vivaldi.

    There is a folder at "User" (you)\appdata\local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Extensions



  • Ayespy - I never asked for the advanced folder.



  • I have opened that folder it has only 2 folders with random names.
    Does it mean Vivaldi has removed that specific folder itself? Since there is no browser manager, usernames, I have lost all my profile data partially, why? Everything else is good, Windows running well, only Vivaldi removed itself partially.



  • Due to significant glitchiness in Vivaldi on my system on Windows 10, I cannot longer use it. Thank you.

    Sad to read, but I can understand... hope to "see" you again in future when most problems will be solved.

    Just to understand stranginess that sometimes happen:

    • Do you use 3rd parties security software? (Some has trouble with vivaldi).
    • Could you post a screen of the empty folder?
    • Which version of win10 you have? 1703 (anniversary) or 1709 (which is current branch) ?
      My system often has issue with latest MS major release. Not only with vivaldi, so I stay "conservative" with updates: I delay feature updates for at least a few months (security ones are always done).
