Exorcism – Vivaldi browser Snapshot 1.14.1042.3

Some really nice fixes just before the weekend! This should resolve most of the issues with ghost processes and lost sessions.

Since the big rewrite to our window handling code, we have had some problems with “ghost processes” on exiting Vivaldi. These are where Vivaldi fails to shutdown completely and can result in what appears to be a lost session when you next start it up again (actually the lost window could be found in the Trash). Most commonly, this situation happened after using developer tools. In this build we have fixed some of these issues and would love to have feedback on if the problem is now resolved for those of you who were encountering such issues.
