38.0.2220.29 is SLOOOOOW and the adblocker is crap

  • Just had Opera update to 38.0.2220.29 and find that it is slow slow slow and the adblocker is crap. I run Windows 7 64 bit Pro. I had to disable the opera adblocker and go back to Adblocker Plus. The Opera adblocker did not block ads and actually had some strange performance when I try to copy pics from sites. I have just started using it (about 10 minutes in) but I see plenty of people complaining about this recent 'upgrade'. Please get this fixed ASAP.

  • I can verify this also yahoo webmail extreme lag so much that am unable to compose email..Typing a character results in a 15 second delay in seeing the character

  • I can also verify that since Opera 38.x several websites have become extremely slugish for me. GMail, FB, Kickstarter, etc. They function as expected but they move so slow. It seems to be websites heavy in javascript. Oddly Youtube has no issues though.

  • I only can say, "I agree" with those post above, anyway adblocker it self contains 1 bug, when we restore our last closed windows from opera, sometimes the link loaded only to the ads, not the pages, and that's strange, so I need to copy the url back and make a new tab for each page that become a ads, ah how to describe it in proper english...

  • well no problems here with it shoot I even combine it with uBlock origin

  • This issue of slowness still exists in the just released 38.0.2220.41 version.

  • I have no problems with the speed of the current version (38.0.2220.41) ☕
