Opera crashes after new Windows 10 update (Threshold 2)

  • Install latest windows updates and it will fix the crash.

    Mine is working 4 days in row without any crashes so far but only after I installed latest update.

  • My system is allways updated. Newest drivers, programs etc. Opera still crashing with hardware acceleration turned on.

  • If could be a problem with your video card. Is it a built in card? Like those turds Intel likes to pass off as video cards these days? What error message do you get in your Event Viewer?

  • GTX980 Ti here 🙂
    But i think I found the culprit. A tab sorting extension - after disabling it opera stopped to crash and works smoothly now.
    That's why I miss old opera. It had everything that was needed. Now you need to install extensions for thoese missing options/components and sometimes those extensions brake things...

  • Nothing.

  • Crashing for me too. I don't have the tab sorting extension mentioned above and I think it coincided with the last Windows 10 update. Please fix this.

    Given that Win10 updates keep falling off the turnip cart about once a week lately, it might help to specify an update date and/or KB numbers rather than the general term "last Windows 10 update", going forward. There have been at least two other update rounds since the big batch of Win10 updates that perhaps triggered the OP's problems.

  • I have the same problem with my Opera 33.0.1990.115 after ny system'h been updated to TH2 (Win10 x64).
    Last time Opera has hanged when even no video file was in playback state and there were no video files on opened tab (but were some files on other tabs).

    According to Event Vew (sorry for Russian):

    I've also installed some updates (Yes, only two updates after I've installed Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10586])

    Security Update               KB3103688                                   
    Update                        KB3120677  
    

    I have two video adapters:
    Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 (ver. 10.18.10.4276)
    NVidea GeForce GT650M (ver. 10.18.13.5384)

    I can also attach .dmp files (with and without heap, but don't know how to do it on this forum).

  • Is anyone addressing this issue? This morning when I opened up the browser it crashed immediately. I had no Flash pages open although it did crash yesterday when I was playing a Flash game. I have the latest PPAPI. It's not Flash apparently because it happens when no Flash pages are open. Now it's happening all the time and it really needs to be addressed since it is not a minor issue. I really don't want to have to return to Chromium. PLEASE fix this bug.

    Hardly. Also, whether or not that actually happens, developers should be testing on all platforms. That's just good development protocol. Test on all sites and all major O/Ss.

  • I didn't have any crash after this update:

    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3120677)

    Not sure if it helps or not but that update solved all mine problems with Opera.

  • And it happened again just now. 😞 I did install last night: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3116908)

    So not sure if this did anything or what. Same error as before...

  • There's a website I frequent that's VERY NSFW that freezes Opera 33.0.1990.115 on every PC I use.

    I'd post a link but the content isn't appropriate for here. Needless to say I use Chrome to visit that site for now.

  • Mine dies on oddshot.tv I think. Happens always when I browser reddit and check some short videos hosted on oddshot

  • I am so tired of this crashing and the developers don't seem to care enough to fix it. There is something wrong that needs to be fixed. It crashes randomly. There is no rhyme or reason to it and if it isn't fixed soon I will have no choice but to switch to a different browser that is more reliable. This is very disappointing to me as I had used Opera years ago, went back to Mozilla browsers and then Chromium browser and then returned to Opera which worked well until the last "update." Again, very disappointing.

  • When you are the only one having the problem the problem is you. Almost every time someone comes here asking about why Opera is constantly crashing its been a problem with their system and not Opera. If all you do is come here and complain about the crashing and not TELL use anything then we can't help you.

    Do you get an error message? What do you see in the Event Viewer? What are your system specs? What version of Opera are you using? What extensions and plugs do you have installed?

    I know coming here and ranting makes you feel better but it does not solve your problem and does not improve the quality of the discourse on the forums either.

  • The problem is that we don't know how to help developers to fix this problem. I hope they have already had memory dumps from our systems (because of opera_crashreporter.exe which is in our systems). And if memory dump is not enough, we can provide other info, but we are not sure that devs even know about this problem.
    And about disabling extensions: I'm not sure, but Task Manager shows that every extension works in separate process. And I hope crash on one extension can't cause crash of the whole Opera (otherwise it's bug in architecture).

    I absolutely agree that it's better to providesome info about problem. But even user don't do that, at least we know we are not alone and the more people comment this post, the better chances that developers pay attention to it.

  • It's not only one, we are a few in this thread and i'm sure that there's much more ppl with.

    I said enough, i installed a patch and this bug appeared, i don't have to tell you my whole life man just stfu.

    I just uninstalled opera and installed Chrome. That solved it.

  • I can't believe that someone would actually say that one person is having the problem. NO. I filed a bug report but nothing appears to have been done. Also, supposedly the crash reports are being sent to Opera automatically if the box is checked in the settings...so is anyone actually doing anything with that information?

  • Yes. The developers. We aren't developers. This is a user forum.
