    Kind of surprised it opened for me since as can be seen from the screenie there is a pile of extensions in a row.

    For sure ScriptSafe was 0FF too while trying this because it's an Iron Fist and blocks quite an amount all on it's own.

    Im glad I jumped back on with Vivaldi when I did. It's really ramping up and I think they got something with this one this time.

    I like Vivaldi, but I find very disturbing to not be able to resize the thumbs in Speed Dial. :(

    Yes, I agree. I should have made the switch way sooner, can't believe that I stayed with Firefox 52 so long. I just love the speed of the Blink engine. I'm also loving the tab-based bookmarks manager. Of course the resource usage is a joke, but it could have been worse. With 50 tabs opened it uses about 3 to 4 GB of RAM. I'm still using good old Opera 12 for a couple of sites, so this also helps. But main browsing is done with Vivaldi.

    Well, they haven't fixed the copy/paste problem and the spell checker dropdown menu bug still happens for me in Proton Mail. Ah well ... back to Chrome again. :(

    I've noticed that Vivaldi freezes when you select "Bookmark All Open Pages", especially when you have at least 30 tabs open, can you confirm? What's also weird is that it doesn't always open websites in a new tab (via address-bar), seems like I will have to report this annoying bug.

    I never have more than three tabs open anyway lol. Vivaldi is starting to resemble Opera Presto with an accumulation of bugs they never fix.

    That's lot more tabs than even a busy user might have open. I think I gone as far as maybe 10 max.

    The only issue I continue to have is on first opening Vilvaldi. I get that grey background with the V that sort of just hangs there for seconds which is a pain but there might be some way around that when I can find it.
