I just updated to the latest version of Vivaldi and experiencing problem when open WhatsApp web:
Vivaldi : 2.5.1525.37 (Official Build) (64-bit) Revision: 5309247574c10e1673d1207a16506a253f2ba8dc OS : Mac OS X
I had to use user agent switcher for makeshift solution.

That's a known issue.
Please contact Whatsapp for their Vivaldi blocking: https://www.whatsapp.com/contact/?subject=messenger

It won't work on the web panel unfortunately. Thank you for being patient with us. Also this topic is being discussed in so many topics that I'm closing this one and we'll update you once the fix is out here: https://forum.vivaldi.net/topic/37195/vivaldi-2-5-breaks-whatsapp-web
