Speed Dials Previews Not Loading



  • My speed dial previews are not loading consistently, at times only 40% of the dial preview loads and other times they all all load, not sure whats going on.



  • Same here in 1.0.425.3 on Mavericks.

    Speed dial links work sometimes from the first click, sometimes only from the second or third click when opening them in new tabs. Opening them in the same tab fails even more. When it fails, there's no link in the URL bar.

    Ordinary links (not from Speed dial) opened in the same tab almost always work. Opening links in new tabs fails a lot. The URL is in the new tab's URL bar, but nothing happens.

    I can't find any logic. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Even happens on this forum.



  • This could be a Chromium bug. It's been repeatedly reported since 2014 and repeatedly ignored by the Chrome team.

    I've had to leave Vivaldi for Chrome as it was not workable. Funny, it now happens in Chrome too, but far, far less. Maybe once in 50 tabs. In Vivaldi, it's 1 in 4 or so.

    I've updated Vivaldi to the latest version an hour ago and now even the "About Vivaldi" tab doesn't open. I've opened eight links from this forum and half of these resulted in empty tabs. Then I noticed Ghostery was disabled. When I went to the extensions page, it was enabled, but the icon remained inactive on each tab. Disabling and then re-enabling Ghostery seems to have fixed it completely. No missed new tab in 30 minutes of frantically opening links in new tabs.

    Then it started again. One in four new tabs remain dead. Disabled Ghostery, problem seems gone. So it seems a bug in combination with extensions, adblockers or Ghostery.

    I'm on Vivaldi 1.0.435.26, BTW.

    SD previews broke with the chr49 upgrade. The problem was fixed a week later. So just download the latest snapshot.
