Some sites make Vivaldi crash instantly



  • The site is loaded and Vivaldi disappears within a second. A goog example is friskyradio.com . None of the other browsers I use (Chrome 32b, FF 64b) had the same issue.



  • Here, with Vivaldi 1.13.1008.36 (Stable channel) (64-bit) on Win10, the site you listed seems to work fine. It seems to have a page display 'slide show' that changes every couple seconds, and that may be mis-triggering something on your graphics processor when Vivaldi is used. Do you have hardware graphics disabled?



  • Thanks for the feedback.
    The Vivaldi version is the same.
    I tried this description to disable HW acceleration: https://www.itechtics.com/disable-hardware-acceleration-in-google-chrome-firefox-opera-and-vivaldi/

    It didn't work :-( .

    Further ideas?

  • Some more details:
    The vivaldi://gpu page shows the same acceleration settings like in Chrome.



  • Running here Snapshot 1.14.1042.3 (Official Version) (64 bit) Windows 10 not slow.



  • @peter-toth Are you using any extensions with Vivaldi?


  • Moderator

    @peter-toth Can't reproduce your symptoms. Like Blackbird, I would first wonder if you were using extensions.



  • Hi.
    Thanks for the replies. I've tried it without extensions, too. No change.
    Further updates:

    • Meanwhile I've found another site, which produces the same: edigital.hu Sry, it's a Hungarian webstore, but the content is irrelevant now.
    • If the sensitive content is opened and there are 2 Vivaldi windows open at the same time, both of them crash.
    • There is the ~amount of content loaded statistics displayed in the address bar when a page is being loaded.
      • In case of edigital I can see it reach 95/98 before crash.
      • In case of friskyradio it is only 1/4 before crash.

  • Sry, I should have already written it:
    Computer: Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, Intel Core i5-5200U, 8GB RAM
    OS: Win10 x64 Home
    Vivaldi: 1.13.1008.36 (Stable channel) (32-bit)

    When I visit the 'edigital' site, it works fine here. However, I noted that it loads a complete total of either 78 or 79 elements (the number varies slightly from load to load after clearing browser cache and reloading), as opposed to the 98 element-total you descibe. Trying this with the browser's user agent set for Chrome also gave me identical results.

    I keep 3rd-party cookies blocked in my Vivaldi settings, as well as using an MVPS hosts file at the system level to block malicious and ad site URLs. It's always possible that your crashing is occurring due to something coming from the site that I'm blocking or perhaps the site may be doing some regional sniffing that provides you different content than me.



  • All the mentioned pages work without problems for me. Maybe a problem with the AV or another Windows application, or a driver?

    Win 7 32 4Gb RAM, Vivaldi last stable



  • @catweazle You might be right. I've installed Avast instead of Comodo a few days ago. It could be the reason. Avast adds 2 extensions to Vivaldi (both disabled).

    Anyway, when I noticed that I used the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit, I decided to change it.
    I've just done it, and voilá. The problem is gone.

    Thanks everyone for the support.

  • @peter-toth I can confirm friskyradio.com works fine for me.
