Email links not working unless Vivaldi is open.



  • All of a sudden, since the last update, clicking on a hyperlink in an email no longer opens the page in Vivaldi unless Vivaldi is already open. Vivaldi is set as the default browser, and no new extensions have been added since before the problem cropped up. Also, my homepages are not coming up when I open Vivaldi. I checked that they were set up properly in settings, and then I redid them in settings, and they got lost again. All of this seems to be related to the last update of Vivaldi. The about screen shows as follows:

    Vivaldi	3.5.2115.81 (Stable channel) (64-bit)

  • The problems both were corrected by the newest minor update, released just after I posted. The new about screen reads:

    Email links not working unless Vivaldi is open.

    I can not reproduce this on Windows 10 Pro 10.0.19042.746.

    Try a reinstall of Vivaldi 3.5 and set Vivaldi as default browser in Windows default app settings.
