Vivaldi won't open



  • Hi community! I started to have this problem this morning...yesterday Vivaldi was working properly, but after I woke up and tried to open it, it just starts the process "vivaldi-bin" but the browser never really shows up...I reinstalled it but that didn't fix the problem. Nothing, absolutely nothing changed from yesterday (like 7 hours ago) from now, but it just doens't work anymore :/ Starting it from the terminal doens't show any information at all. If there's anything I can add to help, let me know. And sorry if there's something wrong with my english :p



  • Kill all vivaldi processes and try to delete the files current session/current tabs and last session/last tabs from your user profile.



  • Yo, I see it's your first post here, welcome!

    It happens sometimes, especially when you play videos the UI could crash.
    Consider switching to a new profile. (Just delete your old profile, or just delete the current session)

    I'm on Windows right now, and this is my session folder:
    C:\Users\Nick\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Session Storage

    You should have a similar path in your home folder in a hidden folder, so check "show hidden folder and files", and you should have something called .Vivaldi or .Config, can't remember right now

    EDIT: As The_Solutor says, kill all the processes first obviously



  • Thanks for the welcome n.n
    I logged in again to be sure I don't miss any processes. After that, I searched for any session/tab-related folder and files in ".vivaldi" and ".vivaldi-snapshot" and deleted current tabs, current session, old tabs, old session and everything inside the folder "Session storage", but the problem isn't gone :(
    I'm not used to Vivaldi's files, so I may have missed something to delete maybe…thanks for your replies



  • did you try to launch vivaldi from a terminal ?

    Any meaningful error there?

    P.S. remember that Cr44 requires at least a 3.17 kernel (or an older kernel with backported patches)

    https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Google-Chrome-TSYNC-Kernel

    The latest couple of vivaldi stanpshots are based on Cr44 (older ones are based on Cr41)



  • As you can see in my first post I already tried starting it from the terminal and nothing happens, not even a single output… :/
    And I already used Vivaldi on this computer, so I don't think it's a compatibility problem...
    Thanks again for replying



  • @conki:

    As you can see in my first post I already tried starting it from the terminal and nothing happens, not even a single output… :/

    Sorry, I missed the first message when I replied.

    So it's really wierd.

    The only thing I can suggest is to rename the whole profile folder and, if that works, to re-add the relevant files in a second moment.





  • I'm also on Linux Mint (Debian Edition, 32bit) and get the same message as lemari in the terminal, but before that it says six times

    getrlimit(RLIMIT_NOFILE) failed

    I was in the menu under the encryption sign in the address bar, which blinked red because some certificate on twitter was weak or something. When I clicked on "Website-Properties" (or similar, mine speaks German), Vivaldi crashed and now it won't start again. :(



  • @The_Solutor:

    Kill all vivaldi processes and try to delete the files current session/current tabs and previous sessions/previous tabs from your user profile.

    I tried this and it actually worked. For me the latter couple was named last session/last tabs, not previous. In .config/vivaldi-snaphot/Default/

    So, problem solved, thanks.

    Keep up the excellent work everybody! The recent update that made the back/forward mouse buttons work was in particular greatly appreciated.

    edit: For what it's worth, the encryption symbol is now green again for twitter.com

    You're welcome! ;)

    P.S. thanks for pointing out to the correct naming, I wrote too quickly.



  • I tried renaming even the whole vivaldi and vivaldi-snapshot folder to see if starting Vivaldi from the terminal gives me some output but nothing…I don't know what to do anymore...



  • Ok, I found the solution…After reinstalling it and not solving the problem I deleted every vivaldi-related files and folders and then reinstalled. It worked.
    Thanks everyone for the replies!

    Solved.

    Thanks.



  • Installed Beta 3 today and it doesn`t open at all. All I have is a minimized window on the taskbar. Starting it from the terminal I see the following errors:

  • Welcome to the forum Tornquist!

    You can take a look at this thread. Probably the solution there could help you, too.

    You should always installLatest Snapshot from https://vivaldi.net/en-US
