Constant freezing in webpages (Opera 34.0.2036.25)

  • I've been having an issue that whenever I open select webpages, they'd actually freeze up in the middle of loading. I'm forced to close and re-open Opera so these webpages would actually work, since reloading or even clicking the back button doesn't seem to do anything. I've even tried clearing out cache as well as browsing history to see if it'll resolve it, but no luck. Fortunately, it's not every page I open, though. Not so sure if it's a plug-in issue, or if upgrading Windows 10 to the latest build version has anything to do with it.

  • I have exactly the same problem - Opera freezing intermittently (six or seven times yesterday; twice already today). I have to close and reopen Opera. Other browsers are fine.

    A good number of people seem to be experiencing this. Very frustrating

    I'm using Opera 34.0.2036.25 and Windows 10, version 1511 (OS Build 10586.36), but it was happening with the previous W10 build.


  • Thanks for the reports; one question - do you have the Turbo mode on or off?

  • Hi,

    Turbo Mode was ON. I have now switched it OFF and will report whether this makes a difference


  • I assume these posts are current
    I am having the same problem too, i get screen flashes i thought it was a maybe a graphic card thing, but i was watching a video on a webpage and it flashed ( the page )and the video shut off, its like the page reset
    I get it all the time ,portions flash black
    I am trying firefox and it does not happen on that so it is def Opera
    I have used Opera for years and never had a problem until now.
    Is there a 64 bit opera,? i have a 64 bit operating system,
    I have completely removed and reload Opera twice , still same.

  • Forgot to add operating system Windows 8.1 64 bit

  • So far, so good. No freezes with Turbo mode off.


  • I never tried turbo mode,it was always off and i experienced the problem, i turned it on to see, same condition still happens I downloaded Chrome and it is perfect.
    I really prefer Opera but until some fix comes up i will have to use chrome, the flashing is very annoying, sometimes it looks like the computer is crashing.
    Graphics go black momentarily but page never actually freezes

  • Hello. Opera is doing the same thing to me and this just started today so why all of a sudden? I am very illiterate when it comes to computers so I'm not happy that another browser is not working properly.

    Anyone know how i can fix this without be too technical??

    Would appreciate, any help offered.

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    Reporting back after several days - turbo mode off and no further page freezes 🙂


  • Opera
    uncheck enable hardware acceleration setting

  • i have been having problems with Opera version 34.0.2036.25 freezing after more than 4-5 tabs are opened. i am running on Windows 8.1 64 bit. Turbo mode was always on when Opera froze.

  • garob, that helped.
    Win 10 Threshold 2, couldn't log into because of a freeze.

  • Same problem on my work PC , but no problem on my own laptop.
    With same version of Opera , same version of Windows 10 , All software up to date.

    No plugin installed , no extension installed, even try after delete profile , but no help.
    It seem like main thread freeze , it's a dead loop.

    freeze > force close > restart > open last session tabs > freze > force close > repeat > tabs LOST.

    Chrome no such problem(tested 46-48).

    Try to disable hardware acceleration.

  • I think the problem is starting to excaberate a little more, even in the recent version (34.0.2036.50), because some webpages are starting to freeze if three or more tabs are open. Even with hardware acceleration disabled. When is this ever going to be addressed and resolved?

  • same in here 35.0.2066.37 windows 10 64-bit

  • I am also having the issue from at least v34. Updating to v35 doesn't seem to have fixed the issue. The tabs that freeze are Facebook (when scrolling down my home page), Youtube (opening videos in tabs sometimes the tab will freeze) and Whatsapp Web (freezes when opening everytime).
    I have tried in private windows so that all extensions are disabled but I am still get the same issues.

    I also don't use Turbo and I have disabled hardware acceleration and it is still happening.

  • Issue is still persisting in the latest update (35.0.2066.82). Fix this now!

  • Same issue here since version 34 and 35.0.2066.82 on Windows 10 Pro x64

    And i am not using any turbo or any custom plug-ins, just the browser as the same after install

    We all need fix for this problem
