    Printing is buggy. Save the page as a screenshot and print from your graphics viewer.

    @nickcuateu And does it not print at all on your printer or do you mean the preview is broken?

    @nickcuateu Using another browser may be the best solution if you want to print several pages, but for a single page, or a selected area of a page, using the camera icon to take a screenshot and printing from an image viewer uses less ink and focuses on the information that you actually need.

  • Nickcuateu - Funny you should post this issue. I (and others) have been complaining about print bugs for about 9 months now. I just came back to check to see if any progress has been made. Guess not. Never gets fixed!!!

    Using another browser for a fundamental function like printing is giving up. Sad because Vivaldi has so much promise, and I wish it well!

    Anyway, it occurred to me to check the processes when printing (for me that means save to a pdf).

    I checked Vivaldi, Opera, Chrome. Vivaldi is the only browser that shows two processes related to printing:

    Here is Opera:

    Here is the Chrome browser:

    Why the difference? Could these two processes running in Vivaldi sometimes be in conflict thereby causing print bugs?

    My periodic check-in to see if the print spooling issue ever gets fixed. If it did, it would make Vivaldi a GREAT all-around browser useful for research (when you have to print or use the save to pdf function) as well as general browsing.

    I did a search. Could find nothing new on this bug.

    Still waiting...

    There is a fine line between advancing features and fixing bugs such that it does not frustrate users to to the point of abandonment.

    I'm pulling for you guys.

    @beansandfranks You get black pages, too?
    With which Vivaldi version, which Windows version and which printer driver?
    Did you had reported the bug in bug tracker?
