Do the default browser doesn't work



  • In Linux and Windows either. In Linux doesn't do anything and in Windows the OS reverts the default browser and doesn't save it.



  • Making Vivaldi my default browser does not work. I have been using Chrome as my default on my Windows 10 machine. When I try to make Vivaldi my default browser it reverts to Microsoft Edge even though I have told it to make Vivaldi my default. What is up?



  • I suspect your are using Beta 3 or earlier. Since then the "default" bug has been fixed in snapshots https://vivaldi.net/

    That said, you can to into the Windows Control Panel "Default Programs" and set Vivaldi to have all of its defaults. At that point, Vivaldi will be your default browser. I did that months ago, and it has been my default browser ever since. When windows updated and force-converted my default back to Edge (along with reverting my default photo program, my default word processor, my default pdf viewer, etc.) I simple used the control panel to re-assign all defaults to Vivaldi.



  • :) :) Thanks so much. Works great now as my Default browser. Also amazed that Roboform works within Vivaldi, albeit with a very slight difference from Chrome.



  • As this is the Linux stream, as the OP asked about both Linux & Win, & as there seems to be no other replies explicit to Linux herein, i offer this relevant link for the OP, fyi: https://vivaldi.net/forum/vivaldi-browser-for-linux/8955-i-cannot-set-vivaldi-as-default-browser#49818



  • I have been having the same problem for a while now, running Vivaldi in Kubuntu 16.04.
    After updating to Vivaldi 1.3.551.30 (Stable channel) (64-bit) I cannot set it as my default browser again.
    I tried the methods listed in other threads like setting it as default browser via KDE System Settings > Applications > Default Applications > Web Browser and setting vavaldi-stable as my default browser, but I am still getting this "Default browser" dialog everytime I start Vivaldi. Any other ideas on how to fix it? It is clearly a bug. :(
