Fixes for recent regressions – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1.5.652.8

A small update with fixes for some recent regressions, including a fix for proprietary media for Windows 32-bit users without hardware acceleration.

I just wanted to add a small note on our terminology as I have seen some confusion in the comments previously. A regression is something that we had working previously and the behavior has “regressed” to a non-working state.

As always, thanks for all the testing and feedback.  We’re progressing in the right direction for a great 1.5 stable release!
