Vivaldi crashes when I click a link in DuckDuckGo infobox

  • Hello everyone, does Vivaldi crash for anyone else when they click the link in the DuckDuckGo infobox?


    I'm not sure how to debug this or get better logs to figure out whats going on, so any help is appreciated.

    Vivaldi 2.6.1566.40 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
    Revision 8688bc465077a16ed6f840ab566085fee1f32d4b
    OS Linux
    JavaScript V8
    Flash /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/
    User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/75.0.3770.94 Safari/537.36 Vivaldi/2.6.1566.40
    Command Line /usr/bin/vivaldi-stable --flag-switches-begin --flag-switches-end --save-page-as-mhtml

    For me this works fine so far with the exact link you marked with the red box - but I am on windows so this might be one hint.
    (I tested with Viv 2.6.1566.31 (32bit) on win 7 (64bit) only extensions running: µblock, canvas fingerprinting and vivaldi forum-mod)

    As starting point to trouble shoot I'd go for a new private window and try if this happens there too.
    Next step would be to have a closer look on your extensions, which ones do you have installed?

    @paul_nim I can not reproduce it on 2.6.1566.40 x64 | Win 10 x64.
    I tested your report VB-54718 and replied. Please wait until Linux dev sends you a debug version.

    @paul_nim said in Vivaldi crashes when I click a link in DuckDuckGo infobox:

    The it may be a extension issue.

    The issue happens when I create a new profile.

    Do you mean without installation of extensions in this new profile?

  • @Gwen-Dragon

    The new profile had no extensions installed. I got an email explaining how to get Vivaldi's crash dump using gdp. I responded to the email. Here it is -

    It appears to have something to do with ad blocking.
