Proxy stopped to work
dodiak last edited by Gwen-Dragon
I installed on my new computer vivaldi and then I noticed that the proxy is not working any more. I was using "export http_proxy=..." way if I recall corectly. I did try also --proxy-server option but the same (none) result. Google search results are pointing to Network setting but I do not see any Network section in my Vivaldi setting ... Without a proxy is for me Vivaldi a useless browser Any hint is welcome.
# dpkg -l |grep vivald ii vivaldi-stable 1.13.1008.40-1 amd64 A new browser for our friends
Hi, copy past chrome://settings and search for proxy > Open proxy settings
At my system system proxy settings open and you can set up your proxy.
Tested with anonymous proxy.
Hm, thanks for the answer. It does open system wide proxy setting. But I want to have proxy just for vivaldi ... So, that's not a solution ...
Hm, you are right, if I set a proxy in Vivaldi Chrome use the same setting.
Makes no sense to me.
Then you should report that to bugtracker.

Hm, vivaldi --proxy-server="184.108.40.206:8080"
does work for me.
It is a server in Thailand.
@mib2berlin As I mentioned above, it does not work for me. And it was working o another computer with fvwm. Now I have gnome and Vivaldi uses always system wide (gnome) setting. I tried not only --proxy-server but also env setup $http_proxy which did work before as well ....
@dodiak parameters work in 1.13 and 1.14.
This works in shell (KDE) for my T-Online DSL:
export https_proxy="www-proxy.t-online.de" export http_proxy="www-proxy.t-online.de" vivaldi https://vivaldi.com
Did you had set org.gnome.system.proxy... with gesettings?
Chromiums + GNOME uses environment differently.
@gwen-dragon I fully agree it did work on my ald comp under fvwm. Now I have new comp with Debian 9 and ... I tested one more times:
- --proxy-server does work. Sorry, There had to be some typo before
- export http_proxy - my prefered method I used before, does not work
- GUI proxy setting starts gnome proxy setting
@dodiak And Chromium (i guess: Vivaldi browser as its stepchild) does not work on GNOME with all env variables.
