Address bar and search bar stopped working after a crash (UPDATE)



  • After a crash they stopped working.When i type something nothing happens.Even those that are bookmarked. Any solution? Update: after a few restarts it seems to be working again,but with a bad behavior.Pages now sometimes take a [b]very[/b] long time to load,but a minute later they load instantly..strange.Its not an internet connection problem. The bad thing is that crashes also delete some page zoom settings..

    how can i do this?I've set everything up,preferences,extensions,bookmarks..any way to keep these?A clean install would be a disaster.I made this my default browser,i can't even reply to this topic anymore,i'm back to cyberfox for this reply



  • update 2:well,its not only with address bar and search bar,all pages take a very long time to load.Then on the next link they open up as usual..very frustrating

    With the browser closed, just rename the folder users/(your username)/appdata/local/Vivaldi/User Data/Default to another name. If this fixes your performance, you can move bookmarks, notes, etc. from the renamed folder to the one that is newly created when you start the browser. The only thing you CANNOT preserve this way is passwords.

    Re-do all of your visual settings after the renaming, rather an trying to move the settings file from the renamed folder to the new one, because SOMETHING in that old folder is corrupt and screwing up your browser. You are starting fresh. Install your extensions again, one at a time, and use the browser for a while after each one before you install the next one. An extension could be messing you up.

    If renaming the Default folder doesn't fix things (it should) you may have to rename the whole User Data folder. Regardless, all of your essential data can be moved back into your new profile after the fix.



  • And let me say, cleaning a profile is never a disaster. It's just a few minutes work. Over the years, I must have done it 20-50 times in various browsers, and it was not the end of my life.

    IF you fear you can't remember your passwords or you don't save them somewhere secure, then transcribe them from chrome://settings/search#pass before you do the rename.
