Opera 35 crashes with facebook videos

  • Hello, people. I've recently started using Opera instead of Chrome and Firefox due to Chrome being a bit buggy with video streams and Firefox being somewhat choppy and slow and not having the print dialog that chrome has. The thing is, i've been experiencing several crashes when trying to play Facebook videos. It's not every single time, it's like once every 5 or 6 times, give or take. It could very well happen the very first time i try to play a video or the 3rd, 4th or last time.

    The browser freezes and it says "Not responding", then i have to close it via Task Manager or clicking the window and getting the pop-up saying it's not responding and clicking "Close now"

    Does anyone have any solution for this?

    I'll leave my hardware specs in case it helps in any way.

    Opera Version: 35.0.2066.82
    OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    RAM: 8Gb Corsair Vengeance LP @1600Mhz
    CPU: Core-i7 3770 @3.4Ghz
    Graphics: Sapphire Vapor-X w/ Tri-X Radeon R9 280X

  • Crashes on Win10 are known issue. They are working on it.

  • I had the same problem. I turned off graphics hardware acceleration and it works fine for me. Not ideal, but it will do for me until a proper solution is found.
