    Does it start from shell?

    Startup Icon are located at: /usr/share/application/vivaldi-stable.desktop
    Check the file, it must contains Exec=/usr/bin/vivaldi-stable.

  • In my VMWare install of Kali Linux, Vivaldi does not start at all. But, running live from USB, it does, just very slowly.

    Is your environment a VM?
