Often cannot print
I am running Vivaldi 2.1 on a Win 7 64 bit machine. Got enough RAM. I monitor and control my running processes, etc.
Anyway, sporadically, about 10-20% of the time, on certain pages of various websites (ex: BestBuy, CNBC, etc), I cannot print the page. The print preview hangs up. I usually print to a pdf but changing pdf or physical printers does not help.
SO then I am forced to print from another browser. Opera and Chrome print the pages fine. BUT I like Vivaldi and would prefer to stick there.
On a search of the forum, I found a person with a similar issue:
I hope you can give me some hints, or if it is a bug, then add it to the bug file.
Yes, we have some sites which do not show a print preview.
Report your issue as a bug, so the developers can investigate for a fix.
Please read how to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.
Thanks for your reply.
I have completed the bug report.
And thanks to the Vivaldi Team for producing a great product, all bugs aside!
@beansandfranks Did you got any mail? Which VB-xxxx bugnumber has the report?
Yes -- It is VB-46547
I reported this link:
Also, many links on target.com do not print.

Just came here to report similar.
I print to .PDF daily.
I updated to the new update Friday or Saturday, getting back to work tonight, tried to print and it just hangs.
Tried it several different times, it eventually crashed the whole browser.
I'll have to either see if I can roll back, or jump to another browser until it gets fixed since i use the web for business.

@rdreammaker HM. Can't reproduce the problem here. All printing functions work fine, including save as PDF. Of course I don't have Win 8.1. Don't know anyone who does. I tested in Win7 and Win10.
Perhaps someone who has Win 8.1 can come along and try to reproduce it.

Unless somebody else is faster than me I'll test this when I come home (still about 10 hours to go) as I should still have one machine running on win 8.1.
@rdreammaker As temporary workaround does the system-print-command still work for you? "Ctrl+Shift+P"
And does the issue appear on all sites or should I try this on a specific website?
@beansandfranks Thanks for your report.
But a hint: do not open a new report on the same bug. To add more information, please answer to your original report: VB-46547 "Often cannot print a webpage"
I linked your new report VB-46572 to the related VB-46547 .
OK - Thanks. I have not reported a bug before. Now I know.
I started this thread.
I tried the "Ctrl+Shift+P", and all I get is a perpetual spooling message from my pdf printer.
I'm running Win7 Pro
The issue appears on certain web pages of major sites.
From now on, I'll try to add those links here as I run across them.
[BTW -- all the pages print on other Chrome engine browsers.]

Yes I know ^^ no worries - I was just responding to @rdreammaker because he has the same / some similar problem as you experience but on a win 8.1 machine so I volunteered to test this after work on my win 8.1 machine.
So far every website I tried, about 15 in total, worked with Crtl+P as well as with Ctrl+Shift+P. (including target.com)
A question that just came to my mind is: What security software do you too use?
You and I are running different OS.
For security I run NIS on a Win7 Pro machine and keep it updated.
My point is that these pages print on every other browser I use -- Chrome, Opera, FFx
I have found more fail-to-print pages and have emailed them to the Vivaldi team.
I might guess that it is a simple fix, but hard to find! (Hope not the latter.)
