  • So I was working in Photoshop when I used a feature I don't usually use (photomerge) and it crashed Photoshop. But then it also started making my other programs act weird as well. It locked some of my files, caused Outlook's database to crash, and messed with my Opera session. So I restarted, and everything seemed alright. I didn't know if it was the direct cause, and still wanted to do what I was trying to do. All of my programs and files seemed to open fine after the restart, so I tried it again. Crashed Photoshop, locked files, Opera went buggy. Restarted, everything went back to normal - except Opera. I can open Opera, but as soon as I type in the address bar, it crashes. Reinstalled Opera, same issue. Reinstalled flash, same issue. What else can I try?

  • Hi, we need to "catch" your crash to take a look at it, so if you could do those 3 steps:

    Open Terminal and input the following commands.
    Set the e-mail address to send logs to for each stream:
    $ defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPCrashEmail
    $ defaults write com.operasoftware.OperaNext OPCrashEmail
    $ defaults write com.operasoftware.OperaDeveloper OPCrashEmail
    To check if it was successfully set, use:
    $ defaults read com.operasoftware.Opera

    ...where you replace "" with your own email address.

    This will help us a lot to find the reason of your crashes. Thanks in advance.

  • Two days later I tried to use it again and for some reason it worked. Hadn't restarted since the last time I was having troubles. I'm not sure what fixed it. I sent in crash reports from the browser while it was happening but since I can't reproduce it now, unless I try breaking it again, I won't be able to fill this one out.

  • Good to hear it's working. Thanks for update.
