Bug : Panel is gone ?



  • Curious problem with my Vivaldi browser, this morning right out of nowhere. My side panel is completely gone. I open the panel tab and I see a big, empty, grey space. Any idea why this is ?

  • Can't duplicate that no matter how hard I try, so I couldn't say.



  • Thank you for trying. I tried re-installing Vivaldi, even with an older snapshot, still the same thing (?). The quick links panel work, but the bookmarks/mail/downloads content is simply gone.

    Someone else has an idea ?



  • You can try deleting your old profile to create a new one, maybe some junk configuration was created and broke it.

    You can see where your profile is by opening the About page.



  • Yup, you should really try to create a new profile.
    With the latest snapshot I get a new blank bookmark every time I open/close the bookmarks panel!
    My profile turned to garbage as well

    I have the same issue also. My question is how do I create a new profile. My bookmark and note files and backup files are still there in the default data. In my case I can see the Bookmarks if I use "tools" "bookmarks" on the menu bar. View "bookmarks panel, Notes Panel or Downloads panel from the view menu does not work. And of course the sidebar is empty. I LOVE this browser and have been using it almost exclusively. I cannot afford to lose anything right now. I have the Bookmark and Note files and their BAK files off to the side for now..
    Any advise would be most appreciated and Thanks in advance.

  • A new profile is created by re-naming the "Default" folder. The browser creates a new one, and then you move your critical data back into that new one from the renamed one.



  • Same problem here.

    I still dont get how to create new profile… Where is this "Default" folder?
    I go to C -> program files -> Vivaldi -> and there is no "Default" folder. When I rename Vivaldi folder nothing seems to happen..

    This problem is really bad..



  • On macOS, the "Default" folder is at:
    /Users/yourName/Library/Application Support/Vivaldi/Default

    On Windows, the "Default" folder is apparently at:
    C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default
    (That's what I found when I DuckDuckGo'ed for the location. Since I'm on a Mac, I can't verify the location but it does look correct to me.)



  • Thanks, now I finally found it and it helps, panel is back but missing all my setting. Still better than nothing - Thanks you.

    "…and then you move your critical data back into that new one from the renamed one."

    Your settings may be the thing that caused the problem - so you don't want to restore those. You want to start over on them.



  • @NSSynapse:

    Much easier way to find it - open Help / About
    And look at Profile Path



  • @TbGbe:

    I was going to say that, but the user had already found it, so it seemed superfluous.



  • @Ayespy Yes, but I intended it more as a note to NSSynapse (and possibly others) for future reference.
