[Solved] Restarting Vivaldi without recovering opened tabs



  • Earlier today, I lost my wifi signal while looking at my modem and wireless gateway HTML interfaces. Now, when I restart Vivaldi, it shows those tabs, but the display is grayed out and nothing, even the close window control does anything. I close the window using xkill. I have no idea what is actually going on, but I would like to tell Vivaldi to start with just my home page (a local HTML file with no active content) or even about:blank - hoping this will clear the problem. How can I get Vivaldi to start without restoring anything? I tried [code]man vivaldi[/code] and [code]vivaldi --help[/code], but neither worked. Vivaldi 1.1 running on Kubuntu 12.04 with backports (had to post this using Firefox)

    Delete the current session and last session files in the Default folder.



  • Delete the files, like Ayespy said, if your session is messed up.

    But if you want just to start with a definite hompepage, like ie6 or netscape, just set that option in the settings.

    Isn't that hard to figure it out…first settings page... ;)

    Thanks! That did it. Maybe there should be a command line option added for this so we don't have to delete configuration files.

    I like the session restore as a default, but there should be an easy way out of it if something goes wrong.

    Thanks. I like the way it works now, but needed a way to get out of this. Since I was stuck, I couldn't get to settings at all.
