Tabs closing by themselves

  • For years, I was using the old Opera, up to version 12. When the new Opera was released, I switched over to Firefox. Now I've rediscovered Opera and been working with it for some days - and I'm surprised that it's NOT that Chrome clone I had suspected it to be. On the whole, I'm quite satisfied with this Opera browser.

    However: there is one problem. I often have 30 or 40 tabs open at the same time, which for Firefox or Chrome never was a problem. For Opera, it obviously is: it starts closing one tab after the other until only one remains open. I went through all the options but I couldn't find anything that would stop that behaviour.

    Any advice anybody? I either have to configure Opera in a way that the tabs remain open or find an extension that keeps my tabs until I've gone through them and closed them.

  • Never heard of that ... any extensions?

  • Strange , I have been using many years Opera v.11.xx also with many tabs open.

    Never have such things , force close tab., no.........

  • O'k, give some more detail.
    Does it close tabs which appear active for the moment?

    Well, and it might be helpful if you describe your full configuration of the system and browser install. :)

  • No, the active tab remains open. All the other ones get closed one after the other. "Full configuration of the system and browser install"? Well, I'm not a computer expert. It's the latest version of Opera, I had installed it one week ago, under Windows 7 Professional. I also installed the Chrome extension Session Buddy that allowed me to import the session from Chrome into Opera (with the intention to continue with Opera from now on). So the session where the tabs closed had been imported before by Session Buddy from Chrome.

    Open your browser's "About" (in the menu) - you'll see the info (not sure if it's copypastable).
    Next. Are you the only user of your workstation? Is your operating system genuine and up-to-date?
    What "hardcore" programs do you have "hot-wired"? Means antimalware and cleaning software, other stuff that can control your system.
    Did you use Opera browser before?
    When you installed the current (problematic) one? What was the source? Was the install regular or did you change folder(s) and/or other settings when installing?
    What are the other browsers you use there now? (In case of certain "cloggy system" issues or alike.)
