Significant stability problems



  • Hi,

    Im currently running 1.14 and since some time Vivaldi have experienced a lot of issues, it never outright crashes, but rendering frequently stops in the client frame, I would say that I have to restart Vivaldi 4-5 times on average a working day, which is not good and a dramatic difference since before 1.14

    I filed a bug for this, but I want to check if anyone else in the community also see these problems ?

    Vivaldi 1.14.1077.50 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
    Revision 193ac00a28d5f2a840e987b93e6d2cdbcb25e727-
    OS Fedora 27
    JavaScript V8 6.4.388.45

    Although i keep both SS & Stable installed, i confess that my daily driver is SS not Stable. Also i do not [& never would, yech] use Fedora. Hence clearly my factors are different to yours. That said, neither my SS nor Stable ever misbehaves like you've described.

    Have you created a clean profile to check if the misbehaviour continues? If it does not, then one or more files in your current Default directory is corrupt.

    No, I do not see any point doing that, Vivaldi should take care of that itself.

    @burann Only trouble is, they don't have access to your computer. šŸ˜



  • @burann Let me see if i understand correctly.

    1. Relatively new user experiences a problem & posts here for help.
    2. A forum member suggests THE most basic of V troubleshooting steps; this is standard advice for all V'ers whether seasoned or noobs.
    3. OP rejects said advice out of hand.

    Question: What now do you expect will occur to improve your situation?

    Does this happen on special pages? Video? Twitch?
    Can you please check the memory consumption over a log period with Vivaldi Task Manager (Shift+Esc) and Linux system ressources app.
    I would like to know if there is a Out of Memory shutdown of Vivaldi.
    I guess something should be in your kernel- or syslog at this time.



  • @Gwen-Dragon,

    The only consistence Ive seen in this case is that it happen more than a few times when searching a page, other than that, its just random.

    I have a fairly high end machine, 64 GB memory and 16 Core / 32 threads, Ive not yet seen any OOM issues, looking at memory now it seems to be at 30% utilization for the whole machine.

    Looking into the process explorer in Vivaldi, the "Browser" process seems to running around 20% CPU usage, which seems a bit much for some odd 40 open pages.

    @burann Nothing in syslog or kernellog like a coredump?



  • @Gwen-Dragon

    Checked the logs for today and I see the following

    kernel: traps: vivaldi-bin[86874] trap invalid opcode

    and at least one dump.

    I will file a ticket with Vivaldi, thanks for the help.

    @burann May be this issue is a bug.
    Perhaps you find in .config/Vivaldi*/Crash\Dumps/ some dumps.
    Please read How to report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi.



  • @Gwen-Dragon I have filed a bug report and included all info I could think of. Thanks for your help.
