Settings Panel is Frozen

  • This is the most problematic of the Vivaldi versions I have used. Many serious problems. I wish I had not let Vivaldi update after getting an email about a new version.

    The settings panel is frozen and the vertical scroll bar will not scroll. Plus, I have to place my mouse on the setting ABOVE the one I wish to access and click on it to get the setting I want to display. Then I cannot scroll down because scroll is frozen.

    Plus, I just noticed I have little square boxes for options when composing. I didn't have that problem until this version. If I mouse hover over each little square it tells me what it is for.

    I suspect all the problems are related to the semi-functioning Windows control buttons since the update of Vivaldi. I'm on Windows 8.0 Pro. the blink of an eye just now, I lost my taskbar and address bar, everything except this window!

  • Latest version doesn't freeze settings for me.
    Plus you have square boxes because the corner rounding is set to 0px in your theme.

    What does the boxes being sleek square rather than fat looking rounded have to do with them being blank squares? I have no idea what each is for unless I mouse hover over each of them and I was asking about that.

    What about the frozen Settings Panel? One thing I cannot access now in this version is Cookies! I need to be able to manage cookies or this browser is unusable.

    Why does the browser suddenly, for no reason, go full screen? That was what happened earlier. I didn't click on anything to make that happen.

    Plus, color background does not constitute a THEME! This browser has no themes. Opera 12.18 has themes...beautiful ones.

  • Worth checking disabling mods (css/js), if you have them.
    I had settings slowdowns - then fixed - with faulty mod.

  • The problems are all related to the Windows Control buttons which, until this version of Vivaldi, worked correctly.

    When I click on tools/settings a small popup box appears and the right side vertical scroll bar is frozen. If I click on the "minimize" Windows control button that CLOSES the popup window instead of minimizing it to the task bar. If I click on "restore/maximize" (middle button) that minimizes the popup window. If I click on "Close" that closes it.

    How do I fix this?
