I have now managed to get my bookmarks and add-ons as was, but thanks for the link deya. FYI I only had one folder where Vivaldi was installed.

On a similar note...

Upgraded via browser and had that message about Vivaldi already running too.
"Funny" thing, after stepping aside for a moment, when i came back, Vivaldi had been completely un-installed! So, downloaded the latest beta and all was back to normal. Go figure.

Snapshot 1.0.344.34 - move tabs between windows;

https://vivaldi.net/en-US/teamblog/7...etween-windows

"This small update to Friday's snapshot is a beta 2 candidate release. Being Vivaldi, we couldn't resist adding in (our initial implementation) of a feature to move tabs between windows. We also fixed a nasty crash" .....

Installed over the top with no problems.

Flawless install via internal update this time.

Don't get it why 360 Total Security sets off an alert on Vivaldi when i do this upgrading. Did it for Slimjet too.

Hope 360 does same for me when 2016 comes around and Microsoft tries to thrush Win 10 down my throat.

Also installed via internal update with no problems either!

My previous intermittent problem of my add-on icons not showing when using Sandboxie appears to be cured. However, I have noticed that when using Sanboxie there are a total of 12 Vivaldi.exe files running simultaneously: when using Firefox there is only 1; as you'd normally expect.

However, if I run Vivaldi unsandboxed the Task Manager shows a total of 10 Vivaldiexe files running!! Very strange ...

Excuse me Torres (unrelated to your post).

Discovered creating hotkey for bookmark is same as for Opera.
Add search engine and give a key name.
Enter key name in url box + space + enter and you're on!

You were quick on the gun Anupam!

We should set a poll here to guess at date of next beta and final version.

It's nice to see Jon in his video.
"I think" he should have a set a few chestnuts on that open fire...

Did a clean install for this version. To start from scratch at the beginning of this year, to get to this stage and with all the added customisation features and options, I think they've done really well to be honest.

They're enthusiastic and totally committed. I like that. Fair play to them.

Came across this page, which lists all the bugs fixed since Beta 1;
