Vivaldi’s Ruarí Ødegaard informed the community about the immediate availability of a minor update to the Vivaldi 1.4 web browser for Linux-based operating systems.
In other words, the Vivaldi 1.4.589.41 stable update is now available, and it appears to have been released only for GNU/Linux platforms, including Ubuntu/Debian 64- and 32-bit distributions, as well as RPM-based OSes. The update adds a patch to make Adobe Flash work for more users with different configurations by changing the locations the browser searches for the Adobe Pepper Flash (PPAPI) plugin.
The Vivaldi web browser is not so different from Opera or Chromium, on which it is based after all, so to view web content powered by Adobe’s Flash technologies, you’ll need to install the official Adobe Flash Player package. After you’ve installed the Adobe Flash Player plugin, make sure that you restart the Vivaldi web browser.
