Vivaldi 2.7: Bring more productivity to your day



  • @npro
    I can confirm the PDF issue. Very frustrating.


  • - Ambassador -

    @npro I reported the pinned tab issue as (VB-56101) Pinned Tabs not Restored on Restart. It has been confirmed.



  • @rseiler I just had a freeze after ctrl-f for searching content in a page, I'm still on 2.7 RC1 snapshot, but I don't think there were any changes other than version and icon color compared to 2.7 stable.



  • @iAN-CooG OK, good to know (and I'll assume you mean Windows). Yes, AFAIK RC1=final.



  • So after the update the twitch and youtube ceased to be working. Doesn't even show the feed, nor channel name, no chat, nothing, just a blank webpage with no working anything.
    Don't even know where to look or how to report the problem, it just doesn't work for no apparent reason.

    @Afdch What is your OS?



  • @Pesala Win10 x64.
    Additional info, it is not limited to twitch and YT, going through the other sites, I see some are broken, like some logos and/or texts/buttons are missing, UI elements aren't working as they should etc.
    I'm haven't been following web development for a decade but that surely has something to do with dynamically loaded data I think.
    Restarted the browser, cleared cookies and cache, rebooted the PC, all the usual sfuff.



  • @Afdch I am watching a Twitch stream right now and watched YT all day, so must be something on your side, I use Windows 7 32bit.
    Try disabling all your extensions and restart Vivaldi. Maybe one is interfering.
    You can also try using a guest profile in Vivaldi.



  • @iAN-CooG Removing the extensions helped. Now to see what has ruined it. Everything worked perfectly fine seconds before the update.



  • wahou!! no more "broken page" appearance between every page loading! way more usable now 🙂



  • Went from 2.5 to 2.7 because 2.6 broke the address bar the way I was used to it (2.7 seems to fix it), but 2.7 added a ton of bookmarks again, just like 2.6 did, don't tell me that's a bug again, every major update adds default bookmarks.

    ModEdit: bad grammar**



  • @Xcell_Miguel said:

    don't tell me that's a bug again

    Except that again… It's a bug that couldn't be fixed, so it's still a bug.



  • @potmeklecbohdan: well, I installed on my second PC and it did the same thing, which synchronized, thus I had to delete it AGAIN on my main PC...



  • For me, playing any youtube video is resulting in skyrocketing CPU usage and the browser basically freezing. Is there any fix to this?

    I've tried clearing out cache and used the "Override software rendering list" in flags

    Please help!

    @xstrike999 What is shown in internal page vivaldi://gpu as problematical?
    Please paste here in Codeblocks

  • In case this helps....I was previously using 2.7.1628.26 and it was working fine but things broke as soon as I updated to 1628.28 and they persist in 1628.30



  • @xstrike999 I experience the same issues with 1628.28 & 1628.30. Not only on YouTube but on any website that runs automatic video like cbs news, yahoo news, etc. I have no control over the video, tabs controls are frozen and I can't close the vivaldi window either. I have to kill vivaldi.exe.



  • @rhk Have you been able to find any workarounds?
    Does completely uninstalling vivaldi work? I have too many important tabs open to try doing a reset.



  • @xstrike999 I tried the following so far:

    1. Same problem does not exist on Edge (Chromium Canary), Edge or IE but I anyway did step 2
    2. Completely uninstalled my AMD display driver and reinstalled latest stable version (no help)
    3. I'm going to try other steps asap
