HELP! Vivaldi won't open

  • I had a window open in the background when I closed Vivaldi. I then closed that background window and now vivaldi won't load at all. It keeps going to the file that was open in the background window. I've uninstalled and reinstalled with no difference. I have no more ideas!

    @maries Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't do anything. The problem is not in the program. It's in the session you broke when you closed a background window.

    If you are in Windows, open your task manager and make sure every APP and every PROCESS named "Vivaldi" is closed.

    Then check the destination of the desktop shortcut to Vivaldi. It should be something like Users/"user (you)"/appdata/local/vivaldi.

    Go to that folder. In it, you will see two folders. One will be named Application, and the other will be named User Data. In the User Data folder is a folder named Default. Open it. Delete every file in it (not folder, but file) with the words "session" or Tabs" in the name. Close that folder. Re-start Vivaldi.

  • @ayespy Thank you so much! That worked like a charm!
