Crashes when hitting F12

  • Hi, till now I have seen this mainly on Incog Window, happened quite a few times (in fact maybe every alternate time 🙂 - I assigned F12 to be my Shortcut for Dev Tools; when I hit F12 to bring up the Dev Tools, it closes all instances of V.

  • I have the same issue. It's happened under a number of circumstances the past few days but this time I was using a single normal window (not incognito), with 2 pinned tabs, 3 normal tabs, and 5 Web Panels. One of the web panels was playing some music.

    I went to one of the tabs and the second I pressed F12, I kind of saw where the developer tools panel would have opened (I have it docked to the right) but the whole window went blank and Vivaldi just closed itself and re-launched.

    It works fine now having re-launched, but it's the 3rd or 4th time it's happened in the last few days. I've been using the dev tools with multiple tabs open e.t.c. a lot and this seems to be random.

    Edit: It happened a further 3 times in the last few hours, regardless of what else I had or didn't have open. It actually seems to be very frequent, just not every time. Will have to switch to another browser for now as it's crashing so often when trying to do my work 😞

    Also, FWIW I'd guess that it's related to this older, very similar issue, so I'll leave this link here in case anything in that thread is helpful to anyone (moderator locked that one as I posted in both to ask whether that original issue had ever got fixed):

  • I'm having the same problem on version 1.14.1077.60 (Stable channel) (64-Bit). It happens at least once a day for me.
