Inbox doesn't work in vivaldi



  • Everything is in the subject. It's a probleme for me for leave Opera to yours :( thank you



  • Your first post, so welcome! :)

    But honestly, "Everything is in the subject" ???

    How are we supposed to have any clue what inbox you're talking about? Or in what way it doesn't work?

    C'mon now!



  • Hye, sorry I didn't say hello! :(

    Hello! :)

    Inbox is the news webmail from google and I use it. But it dosesnt work on Vivaldi ( it work on Opera ). Goole say :" Sorry it doesn't work for the moment on your browser".

    Same thing eurosport.player doesn't match on vivaldi, but it doesn't work on opera to, i need to use fire fox for lunch video on this web site.

    I think it's because vivaldi is news or something else.

    But for me it's complicated to use vivaldi so, I use inbox every day.

    Thank you for your work!

    Well, Vivaldi is very new, but the problem you're having on Google Inbox (and maybe on eurosport.player as well) is on their end with how they are only letting their servers "talk" to certain browsers. All browsers identify themselves with a "User Agent" code when they communicate with a website, and websites are often coded to respond differently to different browsers. In part, this lets them serve data in a form that works better for a particular browser, but some sites simply refuse to even try with browsers other than those on their "approved" list.

    Opera 12.x has a means to change the User Agent to identify itself as Opera, Firefox, or Internet Explorer, or to mask itself as Firefox or IE, and some sites work better on Opera 12.x with one of these other settings (it is trial-and-error to figure out which might work best). I don't use the new chromium-based Opera much, so I'm not sure if they have built in that sort of option yet. I'm sure Vivaldi will eventually have that option, but it doesn't yet.

    Their are Chrome extensions to accomplish the same kind of User Agent switching in Google Chrome browser. Chrome extensions are not fully supported yet in Vivaldi, but some of them do work. If using Vivaldi with Google Inbox is important to you now, see this post in another similar thread for a little more info and links to some extensions that might or might not work. (I'd like to try them myself but haven't yet had the time to do so. I will certainly post back here or in that other thread if I get a chance to test them anytime soon and any of the extensions work. But you can try installing them in Vivaldi, try them out yourself, and just uninstall them if they don't work.)

    (By the way, we are not the Vivaldi developers, but just other Vivaldi users, like you. :))
