First Boot up is slow



  • Every day when I first turn on my PC and then click on Vivaldi it takes at least 20 sec. to start up. I then close it and open it again and it takes maybe 1 or 2 sec. to start up.

    This happens with Vivaldi Stable as well.

    This still happens even with a new profile, does anyone have any idea's as to why this is going on?

    I have: V1.15.1111.3 (Official Build) snapshot (64-bit)
    SolydX EE 64bit based on Debian Testing

    @troypulk This is normal behaviour for any program. A cold start has to load all of the code from disk. A warm start already finds a lot of the code in RAM.

    Cold start takes about 20 seconds here, while a warm start is about 5 seconds, so 1-2 seconds is quick.



  • I wouldn't regard 20 secs as normal.
    For me vivaldi-snapshot loads in less than three seconds after a cold boot.
    My system is quite modest.

    Have you tested vivaldi with any other stable debian OS.



  • Hi, for me too, 3-4 seconds cold start with old system but SSD also a bit older. Start with one tab and four extensions.

    But when I did a cold boot with all my 6 browsers they all started slow the first time.
    What else would cause the slow start up?

  • @troypulk
    Just to clarify, I am using an SSD.
    If you are using a spinning drive you would expect a considerably longer load time.
    I have a bunsenlabs install on an old spinning drive where vivaldi takes about 10secs when first launched.
    Could be quite normal for your system with a HDD.



  • @troypulk
    Hm strange, I guess your HDD is may the bottleneck.
    I would check a Live System from USB or buy a SSD.
    My first SSD change my life, I thought I had a new system.

    Yeah, mine is a HDD and I never noticed the slow start up until I started using Vivaldi. It's okay I was just curious anyway, no big deal.
