Opera starts blank since verion 30 stable

  • Hello.

    This is my first post so go easy on me. I've been using opera since version 6-7...
    Everything was okay until now. The version 30 stable was released and since then opera only opens up and nothing happens, nothing works. The menu, and the tabs up appear but nothing works, speeddial doesnt load, only blank white screen.
    I've tried uninstalling, uninstall with deleting all my settings.(i have them saved), Uninstall it uninstall software, manually removed all the folders from app data, roaming. and if i reinstall it the same problem appear over and over. I've tried the web and the offline installer too. Tried to reinstal version 29 it is working okay, but when i close it it updates itself, and same thing...

    I've tried compatiblity mode too. I have a Sony Vaio laptop with i5 cpu, 8GB ram, nvidia gt330 graphics card, win 8.1 x64. i can post screenshots to if needed
    Any advice?

  • Download 29 offline installer. Disconnect from the Internet. Install it. Disable auto-update for Opera. Wait until they put out a fixed release of 30 before updating.

  • Yes, I have the same problem with opera. Only windows version. Solution - stay with version 29

  • @srampetr:

    Which version of Windows and what graphics hardware do you have?

    Yes, can you post a screenshot? Does Opera Developer (from http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/ ) work for you or is it broken in the same way?

  • I'm at work right now. Opera is working fine with win7 sp1 x32. as i can see everyone is on x64 with this problem.

    I dont have a screenshot right now but others from the forum posted this:

    It looks the same for me too..

  • Hi,
    can you please try to run Opera, via command line parameters as

    launcher.exe --with-feature:"mse-h264-support"=off

    and let us know if the issue still exist? launcher.exe exist in the installation folder.

  • it does fix the issue, discussion ongoing in https://forums.opera.com/topic/10211/opera-won-t-load-draw-show-any-page/28.

    Seems we have Windows N issue.

  • thank you!!!! this seeems to resolve the problem. i just tried on a brand new toshiba laptop, same problem after clean win and opera install; but with the parameters:

    launcher.exe --with-feature:"mse-h264-support"=off

    its working again

  • We are happy to hear that. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Yes, it works! Thanks a lot 🙂
