Hi, you find version in Help > About menu
Don´t crash for me, only lags at first letter on:
Opensuse Leap 42.1 x86_64
CPU Intel T4200 4 GB
GPU Intel GN 965
Vivaldi latest snapshot 1.3.519.23

I have changed some computers with Archlinux from Firefox to Vivaldi-Snaphot. On this occasion once again I‘m searching the cause of this problem.
The short commands (F2) cause an immediate crash of Vivaldi as soon as the first letter is entered.
Vivaldi freezes completely, the Vivaldi processes must be terminated with
killall vivaldi-bin(or sometimes Vivaldi reopens automatically). Neither Vivaldi was started via terminal nor via
straceI get an error output.
The crash is reproducible on my systems when the first entered letter in the search index occurs more frequently than about 2700 times. In order to find out the cause of crash, I have extracted "name" and "url" from file Bookmarks and counted the frequency of letters:
Aa 8115 ==> crash Bb 2468 ==> ok Cc 5218 ==> crash Dd 5115 ==> crash Ee 14395 ==> crash Ff 2642 ==> ok Gg 3696 ==> crash Hh 4248 ==> crash Ii 10252 ==> crash Jj 342 ==> ok Kk 2499 ==> ok Ll 5862 ==> crash Mm 4137 ==> crash Nn 8261 ==> crash Oo 7940 ==> crash Pp 3601 ==> crash Qq 209 ==> ok Rr 8285 ==> crash Ss 7657 ==> crash Tt 8037 ==> crash Uu 4542 ==> crash Vv 1395 ==> ok Ww 4545 ==> crash Xx 1533 ==> ok Yy 1262 ==> ok Zz 706 ==> ok
(The Bash-Script I used: Arch-Paste)
Kernel: 4.10.4-1-ARCH x86_64
DE: Xfce4 4.12.1
Vivaldi-Snapshot 1.8.770.32-1 (fresh profile, no addons)

Power house system with generous resources also doesn't matter.
I have same problem since beginning.
I'm impress that you actually benchmark those letters.
My bookmarks have countless of those letters. Un-common letter like qQ, xX or zZ less crash but still slow search if they do exist. Hence, the one that doesn't crash in your test there are those with less occurrence.
My bookmarks also around 1800+.
I have work around, but it's using extensions, which beat the purpose of Quick Command existence.
