Slow start

  • Hello,
    I commented here that Opera 34 takes over a minute of 100% cpu to start up. This almost drove me to Chromium, but first I tried a new profile, which brings startup down to about 15 seconds. (So I apologize for the "bloated" comment 😳 )

    I notice that windows users are advised to delete 3 session* files when startup slows. We have Current Session and Last Session, but mine are small, and deleting them did not help. Clearing history also did not help. I guess something else in my old profile either got too big or got scrozzled.

    Can someone advise how to maintain the profile so startup doesn't slow down again?

    Thanks!

  • Much of the startup delay appears to be caused by Adblock. Adblock Fast seems much better.
