    @gwen-dragon said in it does not open anymore:
    /home/XxXxXxXxX/.config/vivaldi , it's the right path?


  • or > .config/vivaldi-snapshot/Default/
    or try
    find -name "Secure Preferences"
    in a terminal.

    Cheers, mib

  • @gwen-dragon thank you for support. Anyway, I try right now but no luck. Even loggin off, e come back... don't works :(

    That's weird that file... it start with: {"protection":{"super_mac"..... .... ....
    It's ok, or is the Agent Switcher addon? Maybe it's that kind of addons that crash Vivaldi... ?

    Does command vivaldi --no-sandbox start Vivaldi in shell (Terminal, Konsole)?

  • @gwen-dragon I try right now, but I must switch to SU to make that command works. Btw, after few raws of error and warning message, Vivaldi starts as well.

    Strange, on my Mint x64 18.2 Cinnamon Vivaldi 1.12 and 1.13 starts fine.
    Do you use extensions?

    Yep, I think about ten addons...

    @marko-indaco Oh, i use only Privacy Badger and uBlockO. Running stable for me.
    Sorry, so i cant compare to your Vivaldi.

  • here I am, I was at dinner. Well, I use: HTTPS everywhere, Imagus, ImTranslator, IP Flag, Link Grabber, Simple Speed Dial, uBlock Origin, Video Downloader GetThemAll, Viewhance, ViolentMonkey (which I use for Google Hit Hider By Domain), WoT.
    Well, for today I'm done :slight_smile: , very tired. I guess I'll take a deep inspect tomorrow, both in Windows and Mint. I'll try to reproduce the crash by subtracting one addons at time, starting from the Agent Switcher one. If also with this steps don't resolve, then I'll go with a fresh-new install, but I can keep some files, if needed to investigate.

  • Hello everybody, I have the same problem on ubuntu 17.04 and 17.10, every version from 1.10 to 1.13:
    "Errore di segmentazione" is segmentation fault in italian.
    I'm using ublock origin only.

    vivaldi --no-sandbox gives the same result, deleting Secure Preferences doesn't help.

    tried to purge and reinstall many times, no way, it won't open. Chromium, Opera and Firefox are working fine, have you got some ideas?

  • @marko-indaco Hi Marko.

    HTTPS everywhere, ..., uBlock Origin

    When you do your tests, i suspect / suggest that you can probably still keep those two ok... i do not use any of your other extensions, but i do use both of those... & my SS & Stable do not crash.

    @steffie The most broadly shared extension between crash-sufferers, oddly, is uBlock Origin.

  • @ayespy Amazing! Well then i suppose the only remaining explanation for my singular lack of crashes "must" be that i'm simply one lucky lady. Hmmm, i shall try to ignore my otherwise whole life experience that completely debunks that particular hypothesis...

  • Moderator

    @steffie That doesn't mean there is not some other determining factor. It only means it is the most COMMON factor at the moment.

  • Moderator

    @steffie There was a common "scientific" opinion in the very early days of the the Enlightenment, that putrefaction of food actually generated flies. They were literally born from the corruption of organic matter. It only stood to reason - what was the greatest common denominator where flies were found? Decay of organic matter.

    Someone had the brilliant idea of putting out fresh food and covering it with cheesecloth to see what happened. No flies inside the cheesecloth after days or weeks of putrefaction.

    We have not yet applied the cheesecloth.

  • @ayespy Indeed. It did occur to me earlier to possibly retort to you that "correlation is not causation", but i feared it might be misconstrued as me being snide. It is true, however, of course.

  • guys, thank you all for support, but as already said, I think this is not an extentions problem. I try this morning a fresh install on Mint. The Default folder was new, and indeed Vivaldi works. Well, I replace all the previous folders that I got in Default one (except for the extentions one). This cause the crash... it's something inside the Default folder, that probably change with the latest release.
    I have to try on Windows, subtracting folders one-by-one... I need only a bit time to spend on it cause I'm quite busy right now...
