Quick Fix – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 1628.12

Here is a quick fix for the UI crash on startup that plagued some users of the previous snapshot.

You didn’t think we would leave you like that did you? 😉

Yesterday’s snapshot had been a long while coming, and it seems that quite a few of you hit a nasty bug that caused our UI to crash on launch. Since it was a little sad to leave you with nothing to test over the weekend following such a long wait, a few of us worked late on Friday to resolve the issue. Enjoy your Weekend!
