Release candidate feedback

To help us get 1.9 out the door as soon as possible, please try and focus your feedback on serious regressions since 1.8 stable. If you want to ask about new (post 1.9) features or longstanding issues please do so on our forums.

Note: This build will receive updates from the snapshot autoupdate stream. Even if there are no additional changes, Vivaldi will be rebuilt for the stable autoupdate stream, resulting in another version number change.
