Opera freezes when starting

  • Hallo,
    since some days I have the problem that Opera freezes for about a minute when starting. It also freezes when I add a bookmark to the root folder "bookmarks bar" (Lesezeichenleiste). If I add a bookmark to a sub folder this works.
    What can I do to fix this?
    Best regards - Ulrich

    1. Your system specifics?
    2. Your browser version?
    3. Do you use other browsers?
    4. Type of your Opera installation - if it's standalone or other customised install.
    5. For how long have you been using Opera? When did the problem start and under what circumstances?
  • Does the same happens in a standalone installation?

  • I may be hijacking this thread now but I've got the exact same issue. Every time I launch Opera it hangs for 30 - 60 sec on the first page it's trying to open. After this it works fine. However, sometimes it crashes to desktop as I try to close a page / shut down the browser. There's definitely an issue or two as it comes to loading as well as leaving a web site.

    Current specs

    Version:36.0.2130.75 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows Vista 64-bit (WoW64)

    It's not a standalone installation since it's been upgraded several times (for several years). I might try a totally indepedent installation.

    best regards,

    The ideia of test using a standalone installation is to (try to)check if the problem may be related to (something wrong in) the profile. If the problem can't be reproduced in a standalone installation then there's a high change that it may be caused by a broken profile, a setting or such things.
