DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and don't work

  • Since Vivaldi 1.14.* both extensions does not work anymore. If I open a new tab and open a website they don't block anything. I tried to delete Vivaldi and remove everything profile related and started from scratch: no success. When I downgrade to 1.13.* then everything works.
    It's reproducible that when I upgrade from 1.13 to 1.14 both stop working. When I downgrade both extensions work again.

    Any ideas?

  • A couple of extensions stopped working. Check if they work on chromium version 64 (not 64 bit!, version 64), in another chromium browser like Chrome or Opera. If they do work, report it as bug.

    In the meantime I would use an alternative extension such as ublock (it's better anyway), which is working.

  • Thank you for your help! Both extensions work as expected in Chrome 64.0.3282.186. I already reported this as a bug to Vivaldi but I never had feedback on all my bug reports. I reported bugs a couple of months ago and never heard from them (and the bugs still exists today)

    Ah cool, I will try out ublock. I never heard of them before.

  • @holebuyer After reporting a bug you get a message with the bug number. This is the confirmation that your bug has been entered. You won't receive feedback, if they'd write back to everyone they wouldn't have time to develop the browser anymore. But you can ask on the forum about a specific bug (include bug number) and maybe someone with access to the bugtracker will reply to you.

    @holebuyer May be this issue is a bug.
    Please read How to report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi.
