Vivaldi crashes on launch (sync issues)



  • I dualboot between Windows and Linux (Solus). I have x64 Snapshot installed on Windows and the Snapshot from Solus repository installed on Linux.
    Yesterday i had problems with Windows installation, so i had to reinstall Vivaldi there. I forgot to log out from that browser before uninstalling it... Then i got a situation where in Synced Tabs i would see tabs from previous installation. Then i tried, clearing sync on new windows installation and reestablishing it again.

    After loggin in Linux, Vivaldi crashes immediately. I logged back to Windows and cleared the sync. Going back to Linux - Vivaldi still crashes. I had to disable internet and log out forcefully. I know i probably messed up, but was i supposed to experience the crashes in this situation?

    Re: Vivaldi crashing everytime on boot because of sync.

    @gwen-dragon said in Various problems with Vivaldi (Sync crash and extension data):

    The crash on Linux can be solved by deleting the folder 'Sync Data' in Vivaldi browser config and re-login to Sync.



  • @gwen-dragon
    So i deleted 'Sync Data' folder on my Linux installation. But when i log in again and start a new sync, put in new encryption password, as i press 'Start Syncing' it still crashes...

    @dni_r I never had such issue with my 1.16 Snapshot on Mint, Debian and Ubuntu.
    But i do not know why your Vivaldi crashes on Solus.



  • @gwen-dragon
    That's the thing, that when i just installed it in Solus, everything worked fine, i successfully started sync and it worked. But only after scenario i described in the first post it began crashing. So maybe my sync data is not fully cleaned from servers or something? Is there a log that could help me identify the problem? I could also try creating another account and see if that doesn't crash the browser.

    @dni_r Any hints for crash if you start it from shell?



  • @gwen-dragon
    What should i do to launch Vivaldi from shell?
    And i tried creating another account, it still crashes when creating the sync for a new user, so something got messed up in the browser.

    @dni_r Start shell
    Type vivaldi-snapshot
    Copy the messages you see until crash
    Paste here



  • @gwen-dragon
    It seems i managed to solve the problem by deleting not only 'Sync Data' but also 'Sync Extension Settings' folder. Now everything seems to work fine: no crashes, and sync goes through without any problems.

    P.S. launching through shell does give a number of lines of text, font errors and so on. Should i be worried about that, or is that normal behaviour?

    @dni_r Oh, i thought deletion of 'Sync Data' would be enough. That was always the solution for a fix of many sync problems over months, and you should know i tested sync very much as internal Vivaldi tester.

    For the messages in shell: if Vivaldi is running now, please ignore the warnings.



  • @gwen-dragon
    The problem repeated. Yesterday Vivaldi stopped syncing. And this time it crashes on Linux even if i delete both 'Sync Data' and 'Sync Extension Settings' folders, when setuping a new sync.
    I identified that unchecking 'Autofill' when setuping a new sync, helps to avoid crashing Linux browser, so i will not sync this feature for now (i don't think i've ever needed it)

    I tried opening Vivaldi through terminal only and setup a new sync with only 'Autofill' option checked, and it crashes while in terminal a new line "Illegal instruction" appears.

    The whole text on terminal in that situation looked like:
    *vivaldi-snapshot

    No suitable library for HTML5 MP4 (H.264/AAC) video and MP3 audio was
