Gnome 3.26 Can't Launch Vivaldi Snapshot

Hello I need help with an issue with Vivaldi snapshot version 1.14.1077.3-1 and when ever I add the browser to the dock it won't launch. Currently on Gnome shell version 3.26.2. It will launch from the overview menu but not from the favourites dock. I managed also to take the browser out of the /usr/share/applications folder to place it on the desktop, and it launched but gave a weird question, it asked me to "trust this application" .
But regardless of that the stable version does launch from the favourites dock and this is verified in Ubuntu 17.10 and Manjaro 17. So I don't think it's distro related.
Won't launch from terminal either, so I can't give you a readout of what is going on behind the scenes.

Cant confirm on:
- Debian 8 KDE
- Debian 9 GNOME 3.22.22
Can confirm on:
- Ubuntu 17.10
Must be a GNOME 3.26 issue.
Reported bug as : VB-36741 "[Linux] Pinned icon (GNOME favorites) does not start Vivaldi Snapshot"
Internally a fix was done, may be fixed in next public Snapshot.
i still can launch vivaldi snap only from terminal in fedora 27 (gnome 3.26)...hope this issue will be fixed before the stable :)

Update your Vivaldi, please.
Works for me on Ubuntu 7.10 GNOME 3.26 with 1.14.1077.45 Stable and 1.15.1094.3 Snapshot.
Try to remove and re-add the icon on panel. Or uninstall Vivaldi and install once more.
That helped me with Ubuntu 16 some days ago.
i have fedora 27 with gnome 3.26.2 too and vivaldi is perfectly working...try to do a clean vivaldi installation...
