Opera 30 - Tabs keep crashing

  • Hi I am facing this problem screenshot since I was auto-upgraded from v29 to v30. ALL tabs keep crashing (incl. settings/about/plugin/extension) after 2-5 secs of loading a web page. This is happening in v31/32 as well but not happening in v29. If I downgrade to v29 and use it a little it auto upgrades to v30. Life has become so painful with this experience. Please let me know if there is any more info needed from my end.

  • Have you tried a clean install of Opera? That can help as often times it is caused by something inside Operas install folders being damaged.

    If you want to stick with Opera 29 though there is a way to do it. Download the offline installer, disconnect from the internet, install Opera 29, rename the Opera updater exe file and remove the Opera update entry from the Windows' Tasks Scheduler. That will keep you on version 29. You can then test separate installs of newer versions to see if the problem is fixed.

  • thanks for your response lando. To answer your questions, I have tried doing clean install many times now. Somehow version 29 works perfectly fine but any higher version starts to face the same issue.

    I will try to use the suggested hack and get back!

  • thanks lando I used your suggest hack and now I am using v29 happily. I hope team fixes v30 issues and someday I can use it 😉

  • I'm having exactly the same problem, same version (windows 7 32 bit)... it crashes and restart 2 times more.
    But I won't wait for them to fix it, after 3 years I'm done with opera. Every supposed "stable release" it's fucking unstable.
