Google products semi-dysfunctional on Vivaldi 2.5 on Ubuntu 16.04



  • Hi all. For the past few days, most of the Google products I use (Gmail, Calendar, Drive) have been partially dysfunctional. For example, in Calendar, I cannot add or edit any events. In GMail, I cannot click to Compose a new email, though I can Reply. However, most of the UI on the reply message interface is absent (eg. Bold, Italics icons).

    This isn't happening in Firefox so it is somehow related to Vivaldi.

    Anyone else having this problem?



  • Welcome to the forums and enjoy Vivaldi Browser
    F1 gives access to the Vivaldi Help Knowledge Base

    Unfortunately Google blocks some features based on Vivaldi UA (User Agent). I am not recommending the extension, it's to give you an idea how it works. Vivaldi Dev's work hard in such issues.

    Sorry for any inconvenience, In case of doubt, don't hesitate to ask for more questions.

  • @mib2berlin Good you have no issues.
    Do you by any chance have any work around or tip for @bayleaf ?

    No idea, tested Calendar with my second profile without any changes or extensions.
    Tested Gmail on 2.5 stable and work, too. As some user report errors with Google services I thought it is may the way they log in but it work with gmail.com page too.
    As usual @bayleaf can test new profile and so forth but this is only guessing. confused

    Cheers, mib
    EDIT: I use Google Keep (Panel), Contacts, Calendar all synced with mobile and Linux Kontact.
