[solved] Vivaldi lost thumbnails of sites
I hope you know this file contains private data.
And you can safely delete it, Vivaldi will create a new one. Top Sites had a bug before and the bug probably kept on yours, deleting the file will create a new one without this bug.
I don't have private data in vivaldi. But thank you for the warning. I removed Top Sites file from share.
About bug in Top Sites. Yes I tryed remove Top Sites. I have ~250 links on speeddial. When I create the thumbs to this links and restart vivaldi, it don't show this thumbs and whrite to console "TopSites sqlite error 13".
Try clearing all Private Data (Ctrl+Shift+Del), then close Vivaldi, delete Top Sites file and then restart Vivaldi and try recreating the thumbs.

After my post you block my account.
How to reproduce this bug
1. Last version of vivaldi-snapshot 1.0.340.7.
2. Remove old vivaldi profile
3. Run vivaldi-snapshot and press "refresh thumbs" button for all bookmarks.
4. Waiting when it makes all thumbs. In this time vivaldi writes to console
[14735:14735:1205/201218:ERROR:sync_control_vsync_provider.cc(62)] glXGetSyncValuesOML should not return TRUE with a media stream counter of 0.

5. Close browser.
6. Run it again. It writes to console
[17607:17643:1205/201437:ERROR:connection.cc(1324)] TopSites sqlite error 13, errno 0: database or disk is full, sql: SELECT url, url_rank, title, thumbnail, redirects, boring_score, good_clipping, at_top, last_updated, load_completed, last_forced FROM thumbnails ORDER BY url_rank, last_forced

and speeddial looks like this
I'll let the team know about the bug and your account.
For now, just create thumbs for your SD and not for all your bookmarks.
Edit: It would be good to know how many bookmarks you have in total.
It would be good to know how many bookmarks you have in total.
Default vivaldi profile has 98 bookmarks
the bug is still present
Did you try Lastest Snapshot?
The bug present in last snapshot 1.0.418.3
video with this bug
The error message says: database or disk is full,
Could you check if in the location where Top Sites file is you have enough space on the disk.
Also it would be helpful if you observe how size of the Top Sites file changes. For example is it always growing (means it gets corrupted), or it reaches some size and does not grow further. Does after each deletion it reaches the exact same size?
Please investigate in details and write here the numbers regarding how the file size behaves on further starts, closing of the browser and thumbnail updates. Thank you.
Disk has more then 65Gb of free space.
Top sites size
- default size 151.6 kb
- add 14 thumbs - 7.6 Mb
- remove all 14 thumbs - 7.6 Mb
- add one more (now only 1 link on speeddial) - 7.9 Mb
- and add one more (now 2 links on speeddial) - 8.5 Mb (and now vivaldi can't show thumbs)
I tested it some times. And I see vivaldi lost thumbs when "Top Sites" beacomes more then 8 Mb.
Thank you Rabotyahoff. These details are very helpful.
Just an idea - could you test does the corruption happens after exceeding 8MB if you have on Speed Dial only vivaldi.com subpages, or you set as Speed Dial any of the default folders from Bookmarks? I assume you test always with the same set of URLs on Speed Dial. Little chance the corruption may be triggered by some specific URL on your Speed Dial, but good to check.
On last snapshot 1.1.443.3 dev (64)
I added to speeddial only https://vivaldi.com
25 links - Top Sites 7.5 Mb - works fine
30 links - Top Sites 8.6 Mb - works fine
31 links - Top Sites 8.9 Mb - bug
Do you still have the same issue - after exceeding 8MB, the thumbs are getting disappearing / the file is getting corrupted apparently?
Could you also test it again (delete Top Sites file so that it gets created afresh) in the latest build 470? There have been some improvements made in storing thumbs in the Top Sites file. Maybe they helped in your case. Which is still very rare, you are the only one I've heard of to encounter it, but hopefully we will manage to get to the bottom of it and get it resolved.
