Vivaldi froze my PC



  • I have completely removed Vivaldi, hoping a solution will come up for my problem. Windows 10, only a few conventional extensions.
    After the most recent update my bookmarks toolbat disappeared. I clicked on 'show toolbar' mand instead of what I expected I found the contents of one of my bookmarks toolbar folders displayed.
    Trying to remove the toolbar resulted in the whole PC freezing, no mouse working, dead.
    I had to eventually turn off at the mains, which my PC didn't like.
    Any solutions?



  • Version of Vivaldi? (stable or snapshot) If snapshot, was Sync enabled?

    Famous last words. What extensions, exactly?

    Running on what hardware?

    And why didn't you try to refresh your profile?



  • @sgunhouse I had the latest version and had sync enabled.

    @cooked The questions I asked are still relevant.

    You should try with a clean profile. If that doesn't work, then your hardware resources are possibly quite relevant.

    I don't know how to 'clean my profile so your answer is meaningless. My hardware is ok.
    I reinstalled without sync, no problems now



  • Ayespy gave you a link how to clean your profile.
    This is the first version with sync so bugs you can expect.
