Opera 37 won't open any pages

  • Speed Dial page doesn't load, just as nothing else loads. I have Malwarebytes Premium installed, just as I do on the other two PCs that Opera 37 works fine on. If I recall correctly, Anti-Exploit is another service you pay for, correct?

  • Have you tried with anti-virus and similar software disabled?

  • @falfan762, correct, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is a separate product from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (both have free versions).

    @leocg, no, I haven't tried disabling Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and ESET Antivirus, but I will do so & report back the results.

  • I disabled Norton, AntiMalware, and Comodo firewall first and then closed completely with no success. Anti-Exploit not installed on my PC. Can't figure out why the laptop is different from desktop PCs. Only difference is Win 8.1 on laptop and Win 7 on others.

  • If you do a standalone installation, does it happens too?

  • Yes, if I understand what you mean by "standalone installation" as downloading the complete installation file with no further need for WWW connection.

  • A standalone install in an option in the Opera installer. It allows you to install Opera with no integration with Windows.

  • I'll have to try that, just as soon as I research how to go about doing so properly.

    Just run Opera's installer, go to Options, change the install path and on the 'install for' field choose 'Standalone installation (usb)'.

  • I did the install on USB and it doesn't load anything either. Tried running the standalone version on a different desktop PC, it didn't work there, and now the previously installed Opera on that PC no longer works. It (37) still works on my daily use PC so far. Two down, one to go, and it will be Firefox from here on, unfortunately. Been using Opera for about 15 years now.

  • Forgot to mention that Opera 12.17 still works on Win 7 32 bit. 🙂

  • I did the install on USB and it doesn't load anything either.

    Do internal pages (settings, bookmarks, plug-ins and so on) work?

  • Bookmarks are the only thing that shows up, but obviously nothing loads when you click on it. Settings, Themes, Extensions, About Opera, Speed Dial, etc., do not load.

  • If you start Opera with command line --no-sandbox, there is any difference?

  • Yes, Opera runs using that, but Windows 7 won't let me add that to the taskbar icon properties. I can only run Opera by going through the "run" feature and adding the "--no-sandbox" after the executable. Windows 8 would let me add it to the desktop icon. What gives? I don't know enough about Opera to fix it.

  • but Windows 7 won't let me add that to the taskbar icon properties

    Create a desktop shortcut, add the command line to it. Then open Opera using that short-cut and pin to task-bar.

    I guess it should work.

  • What is the danger involved in running --no-sandbox?

    Don't know.

  • Hi falfan762, I had the same issue when I was using Opera via third party such as LiberKey. When I launched Opera from the opera.exe, no the launcher provided by LiberKey everything worked fine. The only difference I noticed was that via the launcher the user profile and cache folders were not at their defaults (AppData/temp/etc...) but instead in the LiberKey folder.

    Therefore, if worried of using --no-sandbox, perhaps check what are your profile, cache, etc. folders (the ones Opera works with) and change to default. (e.g. Profile: $username$\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable; Cache: $username$\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable).

    It worked for me, hope it works for you.

  • Windows 7 and 8.1 won't let me modify the shortcut for launcher.exe or opera.exe, so Firefox it is!
