Black window keeps popping up periodically

  • Just installed the latest update for Opera (30.0.1835.59), and after I signed in to the browser, now about once every five minutes this black window will pop up for about two seconds. The title of the page says something about log-in. Then it goes away. I'm not sure why the program is doing this, but is there any way I can stop this from happening?

    I'm running 32-bit Windows 7. Thanks!

  • Do you have any extensions installed? Does the window appear in the list of recently closed windows? Does it appear like a web browser window or a Windows system window?

  • Same issue here. Opera 32.0.1948.69 stable. Windows 7 64-bit.

    Extensions: Ghostery, uBlock, Pocket, LastPass, TabHamster

    No, it doesn't appear in recently closed windows.
    It appears like a browser window with empty tab without name.

  • I have been experiencing the same black window problem on Opera for months, which in the meantime led me to favour Chrome... This forum post might hint a connection to the Google Calendar speed dial app.

    My workaround to make it less annoying is to decrease the refresh frequency (once every hour). Now hoping for the black window to occur less frequently.
