[Snapshot 1.15] Maximal contrast crash the browser

  • I was messing up with my Vivaldi options in latest snapshot, and decided to set a maximal contrast, just to see what would be the result. Vivaldi stopped working. Fortunately, I could restore my browser using my 1.13 stable browser.

    I made a gif :

  • @goldnoway jep - same for me. I posted this in the blog where the launch of 1.15 was announced. May I ask how you restored your settings with your 1.13?

  • @zaibon By using the same "User Data" folder, with a soft link.

    Bug is already internally reported.
    VB-37136 "Contrast Adjustment crashes settings page"
    And internally fixed 1 hr ago.

  • Doh! I just did the same thing in the latest snapshot 1.15.1089.3, only it happened when switching from "No Modifications" to "Medium (WCAG AA)".

    Obviously I can't see anything except a fullscreen Vivaldi logo now, so I cant reset the setting from the GUI. Killing all Vivaldi processes and restarting has no effect, still only see the logo.

    Is there a settings file I can edit to reset this setting to the "No Modifications" default and get my GUI back. Specifically which settings file and string/value am I looking for?

    I do have a fairly recent backup, but I would like to avoid restoring the entire User Data folder if possible, so if I can just get the name of the file where this setting is stored, that would help too.

    Nevermind. I found the file by searching for the word contrast. It's:
    C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Local App Settings\mpognobbkildjkofajifpdfhcoklimli\000049.log

    Weird that a settings file has a .log extension, but whatever. Restored that file from a recent backup and the GUI is back and the setting is back to "No Modifications".

    That will be fixed in next 1.15 Snapshot. Bug is already fixed in internal 1.15 Soprano.

  • Hi, it crash on Linux too and be careful, it compromise my profile.
    Vivaldi snapshot cant start again even after restart system, had to rename the profile folder.

    Cheers, mib
