Problem: Automatic redirect to HTTPS
Vivaldi (as well as other Webkit browsers) seems to automatically check if there is a reply on https:// when visiting a http:// url, and then use the https:// one if there is. This behaviour makes [b]no sense at all[/b]: I can't visit certain http:// websites because of this. There is no guarantee that a server serves the same content/website on port 443 as on 80. This makes Vivaldi unusable for some websites. I have to use lynx or crappy Firefox right now, because I can't get it to work in Webkit browsers (tested on Vivaldi, Opera and Chromium). This "feature" should be removed, doesn't even make sense to offer a configuration option.
Vivaldi does not redirect automatically to SSL connections if there are http and https domain.
Please try it!

True, this site works for me as well. But I still have this problem on an internal site. Let me debug some more to find the difference.
I found a bugreport now VB-18012 "Visiting http:// site but Vivaldi is loading https:// + cert warning"
and can confirm a special issue.
Yeah, that's mine - didn't want to publish URL.
I hope someone tells me what the problem was once this is resolved..
Thanks for your report of the issue.
That is really strange. I don't know if this is a bug or a server misconfig.
Lets wait until one of the Vivaldi devs will have a look at.

This is still a problem 2 years on.
I click a http link in my inbox and go to the site, Vivaldi converts it to https.
I have tested the same link from other browsers and they behave correctly.

It’s not unusual, in fact the browsers are required to do that if the website owner says so.
The webserver can force a browser to a secure connection over https by a redirect and sending a header (HSTS) which tells the browser to use the https connection next load.
If you need to test such page without redirect:
Open internal page
Type the domain into 'Delete domain security policies' search field
Now you can load the domain without redirect
