    I just installed Opera_44.0.2510.857 on OSX 10.11.6 and it crashes. I have gone back to 43.0.2442.1165 and it is fine.

      I experience the same thing. As with previous versions, I experience this when the browser is trying to open an attachment or a pop-up page.

      @mortengauslaa, are you on macOS 10.12 on a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar?

      @pmpd9777 when does it crash?

        I'm having repeated issues with Opera 44.0.2510.857 crashing. I haven't been good about keeping track of which links are causing problems...it happens when I control-click on a link in one page attempting to open content in a new tab. But the problem is pretty regular every since the update to 44.0.

        Also, when I click on a link from some other source (Email, Word document, etc.) Opera opens with 2 tabs - the first is set to my default page and the second is the page I'm trying to view.

        Here is my system report:

        I run on a Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 16 gb 1600 MHz DDR3 AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB Mac OS Sierra version 10.12.4 (16E195)

            I concur with Smparis' issue. Go on Google and search for anything. Then right click or hold Ctrl on a link to open it in a new tab. Once you open that tab, Opera crashes. I am using the latest version of Opera on Mac OS X Sierra.

              I've switched to the Developer version to see if its fixed there but it isn't better yet. Opera really crashes a lot; it seems related to tab switching but also slightly random: when you cmd-tab away from the browser it crashes, switching to and from a tab crashes it sometimes. Mostly it restores fine but I have lost some typed content so it would be really great to get this fixed.

                  Hello good afternoon, I have been using Opera for some time and recently i bought a macbook pro with Touch bar and since then opera is constantly crashing, so I researched a lot about the problem and tried everything to solve it, I installed again to make sure that everything was correct. Problems happen when I want to upload a file or download something, today I noticed that if I download the opera and don't synchronize with my account opera works perfectly, the problems do not happen anymore , When I sign in on opera with my account started to crash again, so I guess the problem is not the touch bar but something to do with the sync, because if i don't sync opera works beautifully, I do not know if this helps , But I hope it does.

                    I didn't know there was more feedback. I didn't get notified. Oh well. Using Opera for Mac, the tabbing feature is the only thing that causes a crash for me (as far as I can tell so far).

                    Amaralflavio, I tested what you said, and I tried downloading a file while signed in to Opera, and I didn't face any issue for myself. Could it be that the type of download is what caused a crash?

                      bleduc1, In my case, this is the problem that I am having, it does not always happen, when I want to download an image the first time it may not crash, but if i download another opera crashes, happens when uploading any kind of file, downloads of any kind as well as screenshots. Yesterday I noticed that if I do not synchronize my account none of this happens. And I've also tried the other versions of Opera beta and developer the same happens.

                        That's strange. Do the uploads always trigger a crash, or do they happen randomly like downloads? And so I can test this as well, where do you upload from?

                          Happens the same in the uploads as in the downloads, and the first time crashes and second doesn't, and the website also makes no difference, as in facebook, slack etc, any type of upload

                            Hmm...I wonder why this varies through different Opera installations, because I'm not experiencing this.

                                I didn't get a crash, but I noticed when I come out of Full Screen mode, the icons and address bar all shift to the right.

                                  I created another user account on the mac, logged into the account, installed 44.0.2510.857 in that account and Opera still crashes on startup.

                                  It's another way to create a clean profile :lol:

                                  Now I don't know how to continue... I could try cCleaner or similar app, or fix the disk permissions.

                                  It's there any event viewer?
                                  It's the rest of the system working fine?

                                    The rest of the system works fine. Unfortunately I cannot upgrade the OS any further due to the age of the Mac so I will stick with the version of Opera I am using.

                                      Me too. MacBookPro OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, Opera 44.0.2510.857. The crashing is definitely related to opening links in new tabs. In my experience when you Ctrl+Click and Open In New Tab it doesn't crash until you actually go to the new tab. Happens pretty much every time for me. Only since the version 44 upgrade. Surely the admins have seen hundreds of crash reports sent in - is there any comment from one of the developers?

                                        April 5th and I'm having the same issue. Control-Click to open a link in a new tab, watch it load, go to click on it and... Opera crashes.

                                        I've got a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), with Sierra.

                                        Ironically, I went to the About page for Opera to see what version I was running and it downloaded an update. Now it's running Version 44.0.2510.1159, and the crashing... still persists.

                                        I ran a test before and and after the update and recorded it both times, if anyone wants links I can upload them to YouTube. I'm going to try a full restart of my computer as a third test, I'll report back in when I'm done.

                                          Hello again, I have a strange update to add. I no longer face a crash when I open links in new tabs. I'm not sure why it's not acting up any anymore. I already sent a bug report on this too.

                                            Sorry for the double post, but I just figured something out, and I think I made a mistake in the bug report I sent. I connected a mouse, and I am not facing this issue when I open links in new tabs now. If I use a stylus pen (Ugee 2150) to open a tab, I do face a crash. I previously assumed a mouse would do the same, but I'm seeing it doesn't. I'll make sure I test everything fully next time.

                                            For anyone else who is facing this issue, are you using a tablet device of any kind?

                                                  More or less the same issue here. The crash happens when I click on the new tab. I installed Opera for the first time in years three days or so ago and it's crashed about 20 times since then. Opera 44.0.2510.857 like the OP - horribly unstable.
                                                  Why is there no entry for Opera 44.0.2510.857 at https://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/changelog-for-44/#b2510.1159 ?

                                                  Trying the latest / next version I was just notified of - .1159; will go back like OP if that doesn't work. (Oh, it's what I'm running now, thanks to auto-update...

                                                      I noticed that Opera installed in /Applications/Opera (1).app/ while /Applications/Opera.app/ is a version from 2007.

                                                      Is it common for Opera to install that way or is that likely the issue?

                                                        I started with a clean profile and cache and still have the same problem.

                                                        Opening any link in a new tab (by right clicking) and clicking on the new tab reliably crashes Opera, including 44.0.2510.1159, which I recently updated to, and 44.0.2510.857. On a MacBookPro9,2 with 10.12.4 Beta (16E175b).

                                                        How do I disable autoupdate on Mac?

                                                          How do I download 43.0.2442.1165 ? I can't find it at http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/mac/ - nothing newer than 2013?!?

                                                          To answer my own question, see my answer at https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1883316/wrong-info-on-obtaining-old-versions#Item_5

                                                          In short: ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop. Sadly, these downloads are insecure.

                                                            I installed 43.0.2442.1165. WFM too.

I was asked, "Could you try setting up an identifier so we can track your crash report in our database?" and ran a defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPCrashEmail [...] command just now to do so.

I only face the crash if I use my stylus pen. Mrelvery faces it with a mouse. Do you have any additional third party software or something that might be conflicting with Opera?

                                                                      Zalex108, I am sorry to disagree, but I don't think CCleaner or any cleaning software would really come handy in this case. Learning a great deal on the Apple forums, cleaning software and anti-virus programs are more useful for Windows users, but Mac has maintenance scripts already built in. Of course, it can't hurt, but I'm not sure it would be effective. I also learned from an Apple discussion that a firewall is really outdated and pointless now. It's the VPN that matters and provides better security. I just thought that those were some pretty impressive things to share.

                                                                          Why are you using Control-click? I use Cmd-click on a Mac to force a link to open in a new tab. Control-click opens the context menu. Since I have a 4-button trackball, I use middle-click most of the time however. I am also now using Opera 44.0.2510.1218, which is not giving me any problems. Maybe switching to the current release would help.

                                                                            Let's see if "Ctrl+Click" is causing the problem.

                                                                              BINGO

                                                                              When I was using the mouse, I didn't have any reason to use the Ctrl key because of the right clicker on the mouse. Now that I tested the Ctrl key in addition to the mouse and not the stylus, I can confirm a crash. It looks like that is the problem.

                                                                                    Cmd+click works fine. As does 'right click -> open in new tab'. I have tested with/out external monitor, trackpad vs bluetooth mouse, laptop keyboard vs usb keyboard - all of those variables make no difference. As stated above it is only the Ctrl+click case that breaks (consistently, whatever the mouse/kb/monitor combination).

                                                                                    Any updates from the dev team?

                                                                                      @concretable, I'm sure it's a silly question, but after you create a new tab by Ctrl + Click, do you test entering the tab or do you close it? Entering is the part that triggers a crash for me.

                                                                                          1. Ctrl+Click then open in new tab, as reported by several users above.
                                                                                          2. Enter full screen in a Flash video; I don't think an HTML5 video has crashed my browser yet.
                                                                                          3. When saving a file on my computer (regardless of folder location), the Save File dialog seems to crash the browser - although this doesn't seem to happen every single time, but is kind of random.

                                                                                          I am automatically sending my crash reports to Opera; please PM me if you need to know my email address.
