Windows 10: Enter or refresh in address bar can cause unlogged crash

  • I am getting frequent crashes in Opera 33 stable on Windows 10 November update if I interact with the address bar or refresh bar. To reload a site, I may either click the refresh button or click in the address bar then press Enter on my keyboard. Periodically, but consistently on certain websites, especially more complex sites like a project management web application or a Wordpress blog dashboard, this causes a momentary hang of the Opera UI then a sudden crash and reload to my homepage. No crash entry is logged in Windows' Event Viewer and I have looked in the Opera profile folder at AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable but cannot find any logs there.

    Any ideas?

  • What plugins and extensions do you have installed in Opera?

  • LastPass, Adblock Plus, Download Chrome Extension, IETab (Chrome), MultiLogin (Chrome)

    However, this is still reproducible with all extensions disabled.

  • Might be related to already known issue in progress - crash on notifications. If you use a website which utilizes these (e.g. whatsapp, slack or any other messenger), this might be it.

  • No, these aren't sites that use notifications. The sites seem to be jquery-intensive. That's about the only thing I've been able to deduce as a common factor.
