Vivaldi not opening
Hi, When I updated the vivaldi to the new version the browser is not opening... I uninstaled the program and instaled again and nothing...
Re-name your profile folder and try again.
I am having the same problem:
I downloaded Vivaldi 1.1 for Windows (64-bit) without problems, using Firefox.
I installed it. It worked.
I closed and wanted to re-open it.
Vivaldi would not open. The cursor symbol would switch to the rotating ring symbol for one to two seconds, indicating that the system is busy. After that: nothing happens. It does not even open a process in the Start Task Manager. Nothing.
Following your hint, I went to C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data
and renamed it to […]\User_Data
That caused Vivaldi to open after I double clicked on the icon.
Can you be a little bit more precise next time, by stating where I can find the profile folder, or by not calling a "User Data" folder a "profile folder"?
By changing the name of the folder, all the settings have gone back to default, and all extensions have disappeared (Ghostery, Adblock Plus, ScriptSafe, etc.).</username>
You can move all of your old data back into your new Default folder (it's inside User Data), one file at a time, but don't reinstall ScriptSafe for now.
I don't call out the name or address of a folder unless I know the person is on Windows, because these differ between operating systems.
Thank you, and I should apologise for my tone yesterday. I was getting very frustrated. Instead of complaining, I should have done an analysis. Just now I arrived at the same conclusion, that is why I am back now: in order to post (and now confirm) the same observation. I installed every extension one by one. It is ScriptSafe that is causing the trouble.
That's very kind of you. I'm glad it's fixed.
