As a reminder, anyone waiting for ruario to update the Slackbuild can always use the script as a temporary measure.

Vivaldi related, not Slackware specifically, but in case anyone uses Vivaldi somewhere with Symantec or Norton:

Grumble... as of the recent 2.10 update, Vivaldi wouldn’t open. I’m now using a temporary workaround for Vivaldi at work for it to open (Win 10 1709, Symantec Endpoint Protection.)

Symantec / Norton cause as far as I see, not Vivaldi.

Two workarounds:

1) Temporarily rename vivaldi.exe something else ex. vivaldi210.exe, and make sure your launcher points at the new name.

2) https://help.vivaldi.com/article/sym...on-workaround/

Check for updates fails with the first workaround, but a function is disabled with the second, so pick your poison. There may be other downsides to both workarounds.

In both cases, once a permanent fix is (hopefully) made, remember to undo the workaround.

Almost everything is great, but Vivaldi's widevine still causes trouble - open.spotify.com doesn't work.
Replacing the symlink to /var/opt/vivaldi/WidevineCdm with one to /usr/lib64/chromium/WidevineCdm (Eric's chromion and widevine packages), and spotify works just fine.
Ok, that is not something I replicate here. It all works out of the box for me. Did others need to do this?

Ok, I won't worry about this after all

IIRC, I've brought this up before.
Every other browser I've ever used, including Vivaldi, will highlight a link on a web page, once you click on it and every other browser, except Vivaldi, will clear those highlighted links (return them to their normal color) once you have cleared your history. With Vivaldi you can close/leave a web site, clear your history via alt-t-d and then click on "delete," return to the web page and the links are still highlighted. Having done all the above you can close Vivaldi, restart it, return to the web page and the links are still highlighted.
It has to be storing the history to do that, is it not?
You stated that you have mentioned this before and I vagely recall that you did and that I replied but it wasn't in this thread. Nonetheless I went back and found our interaction in another thread

I still cannot reproduce your problem. Can anyone else here?

I also recall a different issue you had in the past with the WebRTC setting being overridden and it turned out to be caused by one of your extensions. Are you sure something like this is not happening again now?

Ctrl+Shift+Del (which can be remapped). You will need to select something with mouse of via tabbing (in your case browsing history and a time period), though whatever you selected previously will be remembered for next time.

They concept of private browsing was quite different in Opera (per tab). In Vivaldi the whole window is private and runs it own disposable preferences, history and cache. The private windows is not supposed to be able to alter your regular preferences, history or cache for security reasons, i.e. it is isolated. Hence, no you cannt do it from a private window. If we made it so that the private windows showed your regular history and allowed deletion it would also be quite confusing as users would believe that one was related to the other and they are not.

What exactly do they need to accommodate? We have the same rendering engine. Everything should display the same, if it does not is it probably a bug that we should fix. This is not like Opera that had a different engine. Thus there is nothing to accommodate.

If they fix it to work with Chrome, it will work with us. As for growth let me give you an example from another browser which I am in no way affiliated. Brave recently annoucned they hit 10 million users. They have never used their own UA. Lacking a Brave UA has not held back they growth. On the contrary, it probably aided it.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
In regards to the "re-appearing" history, there are no extensions installed. The problem continues to this day, which is why I now rarely use Vivaldi except when a page won't display properly in Pale Moon or Firefox. Recently that has only happened when using the search (for store) function on the peets.com web site.
I would like to use Vivaldi, as it reminds of the "old Opera" of which I was a big fan, but I just don't trust it. That is, in part, due to guilt by association with anything to do with google.

Well we monitor and do our best to remove anything that appears to be tracking. Also worth keeping in mind that Jon is behind broth browser and roughly 40% of the team is old ex-opera.

OT again, in case it’s of help to anyone here...

The post 2.10 update no-launch problem on Win 10 with Symantec has gone away.

Vivaldi is launching normally for me again after this latest update, no workarounds needed.

Per the link, Symantec did something to fix the problem, and if you used the CodeIntegrity workaround, you should now remove it.

OK, I’m done with OT posts on this thread

I run stable, but it looks like the current snapshot release has fixed the issue of leaving space over the tabs after exiting a full-screen video. It was a small, but annoying, issue that I'm hoping has been resolved.
