The stable version of Vivaldi is definitely version 2.1.1337.36 Alan. I think you must be using the Snapshot (developer) version of Vivaldi, the latest version of which is the 2nd release candidate (v2.1.1337.35) for this latest stable version as you can see in this thread (even though I made a typo ~ RC 1 ~ in the title). A Snapshot version won't update to become a stable version, the nearest it usually gets to is the latest release candidate version which you've obviously got. The next Snapshot version may well be v2.2.xx.

I've got both the Stable and Snapshot versions installed on this PC, but only the latest stable version on the laptops. Snapshot versions can be 'buggy', so you might do better to have the stable version instead. I like to have the Snapshot version as well because I find it interesting to see what's forthcoming!

If you want to have both versions ~ Stable and Snapshot ~ they need to be installed separately.

The stable version update is about 12 MB, a lot smaller than the 51+ MB of the full installer!

OK I downloaded the latest full installer from the Vivaldi site and it did update to 36 (Stable Version) so alls well that ends well even if there was a learning curve. Thanks Madeline.

It does and it's a bit confusing really and my Snapshot version is the same, but I think they're just confirming that it isn't a dodgy version!

You'tr very welcome and I'm glad you've got it sorted now Alan. I meant to add before that I thought the full installer would install the Stable version would install over the Snapshot version even though it wouldn't update to it, but I forgot at the time, then it got too late! I hope it kept all your settings, bookmarks etc.

Another reason that I have both versions is that when I first heard about Vivaldi ages ago and wanted to try it out, there was no Stable version at the time, just Snapshots!
