Whatsapp Web in webpanel is broken

  • Whatsapp doesn't work for me again in latest snapshot (2.7.1609.4 64-bit). Neither Home or Reload buttons solve this. Restarting browser doesn't help. It doesn't work in both panel and in normal tab. I tried running Vivaldi with this parameter

    --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/76.0.3809.87 Safari/537.36"

    which should be latest UA for Chrome according to this website but it still won't load Whatsapp web. It always just displays message that Whatsapp works with Chrome version 49 and newer. 🤔

    @nSheep Curretnt 2.7.1609.4 Snapshot is broken and does not inject the user-agent from command line in webpanel.

  • @Gwen-Dragon Oh, okay.

    But I'm confused either way.
    It doesn't work in normal tab too when using command line parameter.
    I tried user agent switcher extension with exactly same UA and it opened Whatsapp web without problem.
    But my user agent was detected exactly the same on whatismybrowser.com website using both methods.
    I'll just wait until tomorrow, maybe I'm missing something because I'm too tired or it's just some temporary glitch and it'll start working again. 🙂

  • I'm new to Vivaldi, and just encountered this problem. Yesterday, WhatsApp Web worked in a panel. After today's update (3.3.2022.45) it doesn't load. I just get the main WhatsApp page. I can load it in a tab, though.

    Edit: After setting the panel to "Show Desktop Version" and hitting Home in the panel, all is working. I thought I had done this before posting, but apparently not.

    Currently Web Panels are unable to download, it's a known issue and the dev's are working on it.
