Crash reports

  • I just wanted to confirm whether Vivaldi for Windows automatically creates and sends crash reports. Because the browser has done so at least three times today already. I am not doing anything unusual so I don't know what's going on.

    No, it is not implemented to send us crash reports.

    You may find crash dumps at
    "%LocalAppdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Crashpad\reports"

    The only bit I can report is that it's crashing. I can't exactly answer the rest of the form.

    @jxzero a crashdump file with date/time stamp around the crash can be found at
    C:\Users\…\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Crashpad\reports\
    You can reply to the report mail and attach the file.
