Vivaldi going beserk (outlook.com)
von Papst last edited by Gwen-Dragon
Since this morning I'm having problems with my Vivaldi. It is latest stable release version x64 and when I open third tab the browser goes beserk, it spikes CPU and starts to hog memory like crazy. Check screenshot. Any Idea why? How to troubleshoot this? I already tried with different pages on tabs it is not web page related.
In Vivaldi please open its task manager with Shift+Esc and check which extension or tab creates such issue.
Looks like there is some background page.
And what is the tab with the blue O icon below the roundcube icon?
Thats Outlook @Gwen-Dragon
Outlook and even if I close it it is still the same. I've tried with different tabs and I still get same result. Background page is starting to eat memory like crazy. I've tried to end process but after restart of browser it starts to eat memory like before.
After several restarts and end process kills of background tabs I finally got to the root cause. It looks like outlook.com page in BETA mode is beserking Vivaldi. After switching back to non beta mode on outlook.com it all came back to normal. Obviously problem on MS side.
@von-papst Ah, OK, is a fault of Microsoft's pages.

Hi, I can confirm the problem.
I would add that this happens only when the outlook tab is in background(edit: actually not only in background). I can't reproduce this bug with Firefox or Chromium.
Please report such issue with outlook background tab to us.

... And I even tried two machines.. I'm like a vivaldi qa staff...

I suggest to test outlook.com first in Private Window (has no extension running) to get a clue if any extension causes high load.

I've been running into the same issue. Opening Outlook.com in a new private window seems to obviate this problem (so far). Here are the extensions I'm using:
- uBlock Origin
- HTTPS Everywhere
- Markdown Here

For those who say it doesn't happen in Chrome, try again. It does, at least here (v64).
uBlock Origin is a prerequisite there too (this could probably be fixed by figuring out which filter is doing it).
It's not as noticeable in Chrome, since the UI is still fluid, but if you keep Task Manager open on the side, it's as plain as day.
I've noticed that it tends to trigger when clicked into Inbox, just like in Vivaldi.

@rseiler the most obvious thing to do is to disable/whitelist ub0 on that site. Then maybe open a ticket at ub0 github repo. On reddit they are talking about this
@ian-coog Thanks for more information.
I updated the relevant bug in Vivaldi bugtracker.
