Suddenly Vivaldi opens 166+ sessions.
I have to kill them with killall vivaldi-bin
I remove all (prog and config) then re-install the last version (vivaldi-stable_3.3.2022.47-1_amd64.deb) , but same behaviour.
Linux Mint 20
Graphics card: GeForceGTX970
Please ask if other infomation is needed !

Do you mean sessions, or processes? If you mean processes, that's how Vivaldi (and all Chromium-based browsers) have always worked. Chromium uses a multiple processes architecture.
Edit: I'm assuming you don't mean it's opening 166+ saved sessions.
@lucberger Try changing Settings, General, to Startup with Start Page or Homepage instead of Last Session.

Lucky i had just finished my coffee moments before reading this, otherwise my monitor would have become abruptly sad.

Technically, Vivaldi only ever opens with one session: the current session. With your settings you can have it populate the current session with the previous session as it was when Vivaldi last exited, or some less populated state like only the speed dial or a specific webpage. When you "open" a saved session, it merges the contents of the saved session into your current session, and the saved session remains as it was before -- it's not open nor closed, it just is; it's a saved session, which never changes.
But if Vivaldi is populating the current session at runtime with over a hundred saved sessions that weren't part of the previous session when Vivaldi exited, then something is definitely wrong. Based on the rest of the OP, I'm pretty sure we're all in agreement that he was referring to processes though. I think it's a safe bet that the state of his current session is such that this is expected behavior. We'll see when he returns.

@BoneTone You overlooked one salient point. It's 2020. Absolutely anything is possible.

Vivaldi starts always with all tabs you had open when you closed Vivaldi.
If you are concerned about many processes, i can tell you that are the processes needed for all open tabs and extensions.

@Pesala Update 25 sept:
- Please note that I delete Vivaldi then re-install completely.
- When I write sessions, I mean windows: The windows show all blank (white). I see a (very) long list when I click the Vivaldi task bar button in the windows list.
- So , I do not have access to the Vivaldi's menu
- There is logically a big amount of the 16 Gb RAM used.
- I just check with another Mint 20 machine but OK.
- I replace the 'nvidia-driver-450' by the 'xserver-xorg-video-nouveau', and in this case the machine freeze.

@lucberger Try renaming
~/.config/vivaldi/to something else (e.g.
~/.config/vivaldi-bkp). After launching Vivaldi, you should get a completely clean config.
