Stable breaks Snapshot profiles if you do have Snapshot installed for a user. A Vivaldi update will restart the Stable and this will open the Snapshot profile and kill all logins.
VB-30141 "Update of Stable or Snapshot craps current user's Vivaldi profile"
Vivaldi browser needs separate profile management on Windows for Stable and Snapshot and the updater should not restart with a wrong profile.
I hate losing my profile data!

Ouch. Luckily I'm happy with only running Snapshots, but I can imagine this is a big issue for the Sopranos who need to have both installed.
That's an old VB-number by the way - must have been reported years ago?
What do you mean by "kill all logins"? The profile folder is reset or broken in some way?

I don't know what kind of cake it is, but I'd like some!
@pathduck: The bit that is missing is that she has defined custom user data directories via the command line switch
--user-data-dir=embedded in the start up links for both installs and the issue would appear to be that the updater does not carry over the command line switches. It should, I agree that is a bug but to be clear this is not something that is likely to happen to most users as I think it is unlikely that most users launch two streams with different user-data-dirs when that can more easily be handled via stanalone installs.
AFAIK (and a windows dev can feel to correct me) but the updater executable is basically the Chrom(e|ium) so the same issue would almost certainly appear there as well if someone launched in this way.
Note: I have not double checked this but it seems likely.

@nekomajin: based on the colors & the surrounding elements, I'd say it's a "candy corn" cake. Happy Halloween!
