They tested with 2.3 and the issue was not reproducible.
Just tested (VB-47752 ) - I can not reproduce.

@Gwen-Dragon Thanks for letting me know. Maybe they've fixed the bug already between 2.2.1388.37 and 2.3.

I encountered similar random freezes about one week ago (or even 10 days). However, I did not pay too much attention, and in the meantime, they seem to have disappeared. Probably something has changed with the last update of Vivaldi (2.3.1401.7 (Official Build) 64-bit).

Another issue is that it also prevents scrolling through tabs while the site is loading. Is 2.3 beta? I'm on 2.2 with no available updates (win 10 64bit)
@sahands 2.3 is what is referred to as a "snapshot." They come out about once a week or so, if the team is not on holiday, as they are now.
Here's a link to the blog where they are published: https://vivaldi.com/blog/snapshots/a-small-update-from-yesterday-vivaldi-browser-snapshot-1401-7/
I recommend installing snapshots standalone rather than as a replacement for Stable (2.2 ATM).
We should never install different engines & version number on the top of previous release.
Having the same issue on versions 2.2 and 2.3.1420.4 I have tried to disable smooth scrolling as well as hardware acceleration... it's not just the web page that freezes momentarily for 2-5 seconds but the whole browser. it almost seems to be some type of scrolling issue when using the middle mouse button.

Hi, did you try with a clean profile?

Vivaldi has been having strange freezing issues when loading pages. Some make it so the entire browser stops and won't respond. I can switch to Chrome, same single plugin Join, and the pages load without issue. Shoot, even Edge works fine.
What has changed in the last several updates? As It was bad, went wonderfully perfect, then back to bad. Where can I look to find why it locks up so bad?
*PS - Have already tried in-private and disabling the one plugin. Issue remains.
@mib2berlin Yeah i completely deleted the default folder and still have the same issue
Check here, few of us having the same issue it seems https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/33459/freezing-on-many-websites/30

Hello, I'm having what I believe is a similar issue and I have pinned it down to, bizarrely, when I use my scroll wheel. I was wondering if my issue is the same as others here or if my scenario is actually different. It's been happening for over a month at least, I just couldn't figure out the cause. I will describe below.
Vivaldi 2.2 x64 on Windows 10 1803. I have tried with a normal installation and also with disabling all extensions and then also a clean profile. Some sites are worse than others. I have Task Manager open to keep an eye on CPU usage.
Here is an example page I am accessing. It's consistently pretty slow because it has a lot of js, video, and other graphics. https://codesandbox.io/
SCROLL WHEEL: After the page is partially loaded, I scroll down with the mouse scroll wheel. After the second flick, Vivaldi stops responding for a second, then slowly starts responding, but is very laggy, scrolling only a few lines per second. CPU usage is not high. After about 5 seconds, it will quickly jump down. After about 10 seconds, it's fully responsive like normal.
SCROLL BAR: After the page is partially loaded, I grab the scroll bar with the mouse and drag it up and down over and over. Vivaldi never stops responding or lags. The web page takes a bit to load, but it loads completely. The whole process is much faster and there's never a point where I can't interact with the partially loaded page's UI, including starting video playback, highlighting text, interacting with page elements, etc.

I'm not sure it is really the scroll wheel that is causing the issue, at least not for me. I have a Logitech MX Master and did what you did, but bizarrely, this site you mentioned didn't freeze at all for me.
But I do still have the problem that Vivaldi seems to freeze randomly on certain sites.
Have a look at my post over here:
