i just copied the vivaldi folder to another pc and all extensions and passwords are gone. i have of course the portable installation. this cant be intentional?
There is no portable version as yet. There is only "standalone," which is not portable. Extensions and passwords are stored in files which are encrypted using a key which is unique to each user profile on each PC. Hence, on transfer, they cannot be read. So until sync is implemented, there is no way to transfer these from one PC to another.
There is no portable version of Vivaldi (yet), only a standalone version which is still "tied" to the PC it is installed on.
i see, thats a bummer.
maybe solution would be to implement a master password, like in opera 12 for security..
any news on this? i want to take vivaldi with the extensions on an usb drive.
this cannot be so hard to make a portable??
Did you try e.g.:
I haven't tested, if it's working as a "real" portable version, so you'll can have portable extensions, etc.
(but whereas it seems that the data folder is directly next to the executable, it's possible).
And yes, it's not official distribution. But seems clean.
I see, that's a bummer.
The first computer I used was a Compaq portable with two 5¼" floppy disks, no hard drive and, if I remember correctly, 512 Kbytes of RAM. I wrote my first book on it. People demand too much nowadays. They expect instant gratification of their every desire, and cannot be patient at all. Instead of complaining, start writing some code to make your own browser and see how long it takes.
@schreck It's not quite portable yet, but there are a couple of ways to transfer your data to another computer. Take a look at the tutorial on how to move the User Data. You might also find the solution using a batch file helpful.
@nfsmaniac I tested on my desktop computer and VM: Not works!
@Obiwan2208 So let's try the batch file method mentioned above then.
If there's anything unclear for you on that method, you are free to ask here.
I noticed that if you reinstall same extensions on the new PC, your settings for those extensions will be recovered from the original settings (assuming you copied "User Data" folder).
Well, this is at least something... especially if you use lot of extensions...
Most extensions considered as not dangerous, so their settings just in casual form.
Extensions like password manager or contain/use private informations usually encrypted from top to bottom. Well, we expect it that's the fact, aren't we?
Once upon a time Lasspass use/kept text readable information in user system, also send it through network to their server that way. They "fix it" after somebody finally find it, after years become famously used.
