Crashes in Windows 7

  • Just started using Vivaldi and loving it, but I am experiencing crashes in Windows 7, 64 bit.

    When I press on "site info" next to the address bar Windows comes up with ".... having problems" box and offers to send info to Microsoft then closes the program.

    Everything else seems to work fine except for using passwords which again crashes the program.

    I want to use Vivaldi as my main browser but need the "site info" to work to turn on flash as required.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

  • I'm 'WIN7' myself. I've never had any problem running any of the browsers, or anything else for that matter. However I do not use any A/V program, and only use Defender for a manual scan rarely. [No I'm not nuts. I do rely HEAVILY on the use of a sandbox program for protection].

    Have you tried disabling whatever A/V you are using? Surely there is some trusted URL you can test on? That sounds like our only difference, and my Vivaldi runs perfectly.

    Good luck

  • Thanks, but makes no difference. I have tried disabling each of my protective layers one by one and Vivaldi still crashes when site info button is pressed.

    Everything else seems to work fine.

  • Sorry to be a pest, but when I [left] click on the Site Info button, all that happens is a list...with drop down's to select 'Ask, Block, Allow'. In fact, just changed Flash from 'Ask' to 'Allow' for this site.

    How about when you installed Vivaldi? A/V on then, that could have effected some file install? On the browser you used to GET Vivaldi, were you running Ad Blocking? In Opera THAT can mess up web-pages.

    Wont bother you further; just feel sorry and wish I could help. Maybe an Extension is causing it?

    Good Luck.....

  • P.S. Considering this URL to be 'safe', I just brought it up outside my sandbox; no protection of any kind..... Still, the Site Info button worked as supposed to.

  • Thanks for this. I will fill in a bug report.
