Feedback: Unable to automatically update



  • Communist Party of China to intercept the "vivaldi. Net", you need to access the network through a proxy. I was in the command line parameter to specify the PAC file, use a proxy. But the "automatic update" does not use the proxy.

    Hmm, the PRC does have a policy of blocking many outside blog/social media sites. Perhaps the automatic updater should have a different (or at least backup) source of updates other than from the domain vivaldi.net, in case vivaldi.net gets blocked for containing user blogs.

    However, in this case, it's possible there was just an innocent, localized accidental route leak issue, or something like that. While https://asm.ca.com/en/ping.php reports vivaldi.net being unreachable from a machine in Shanghai (but OK from a test in Hangzhou), both https://en.greatfire.org/ and http://www.greatfirewallofchina.org report vivaldi.net isn't currently being widely blocked in mainland China.

    OTOH, I suppose Vivaldi.net may have been temporarily blocked at the time you encountered the issue. I saw a user claim in another thread that an anti-China blog post of his on Vivaldi.net attracted some hacking of his account until he stopped embedding a particular video. Perhaps someone took notice of that guy's blog or another PRC-critical blog and reported the site to PRC censors, earning it a temporary blocking? Seems absurd, and unlikely for such a relatively small social site to attract attention, but I guess I wouldn't put it 100% outside of the realm of possibility, since such censoring authorities can be absurd, and have people employed with nothing better to do all day.
