@sgunhouse said in 100% reboot on a specific site:
Why such an old version of Opera? I guess you probably have XP or Vista and thus can't install later versions? There was one later version for XP/Vista (2130.80) but it is still over 3 years old at this point ...
because it is this version that restarts (and possibly others) what kind of question?
if it will be useful to developers to roll out let's say the version 2130.90 then here is the bug report please
and also in the absence of other places where you can write, I want to know that by writing about it here it will go to developers
@burnout426 Hey man, thanks for that, very interesting. As it happens, the stuttering has randomly stopped (but frames still drop like leaves in an autumn storm). The move to Firefox has been going OK... just that I will miss some of the Opera features like PIP, double press tab to scroll, alt+space to search modal etc...
Site still doesn't work on Opera. I checked on another pc, here it also doesn't work. First laptop has Windows 10 installed, second Windows 7. Both systems fully updated, Opera is also the newest version. No problems on any other browser.
I'm a little late to the party but this may help someone else in the future.
There is a very easy workaround that allows reordering startup pages:
Open a new instance of Opera and put the tabs in the desired order
Go to settings and click "Use Current Pages" in the "On Startup" section
Voila - reordered!
Well, it's been a week since I disabled Video Downloader Pro and China Eastern hasn't popped up again. I'll re-enable it to see if it's a coincidence. I hope it is as VDP is my favourite video downloader.
Open the Windows Task Manager and look at the "Startup" tab. Is Opera in the list?
In Opera, goto the URL opera://about and check for updates to make sure you have the newest version. Maybe Opera's updater is placing an icon in the systray because you need to update. Never saw Opera do that, so just guessing. You can load the Windows Task Scheduler, disable Opera's updater tasks, restart Windows and see if that makes a difference.
For https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera/desktop/65.0.3467.42/win/ for example, you can download the installer, load up PowerShell in Windows and run:
Get-FileHash .\Opera_65.0.3467.42_Setup_x64.exe | Format-List
to check the hash of the installer to make sure it's the same as the hash listed in the Opera_65.0.3467.42_Setup_x64.exe.sha256sum file on the server. Then, you can uninstall Opera while keeping your data and then reinstall using the installer you downloaded and checked to make sure things are good.
But, that's only if you really wanted to. If got the Opera installer from Opera's site, it's good and BitDefender just has a false positive.
