new version - OUT OF MEMORY issue

  • Memory is fine until I start using Opera

    Using Opera how? Just opening Opera, without any page opened, causes the issue? Do you need to open some pages for it to happen? If so, which ones?

    When will this be fixed??

    To fix it they need to be able to reproduce it.

  • I can open opera no problem but on any website watching any video after a couple of minutes that's when it crashes and says Out of Memory.

  • Well every time i got this problem, it appears when im on twitch.tv.

    I was watching a replay from a streamer. It's weird

  • on any website watching any video

    Do you know if it's a Flash based video or a html5 one? Do you have a couple of examples where the problem happens?

    it appears when im on twitch.tv.

    Any other page where the issue happens?

  • It's a HTML Video format.

    I will post it if this issue appears on different web pages

  • For me it's flash video and mostly on website Clixsence.com

  • Can you post a screenshot of Opera's task manager at that point or shortly before?

  • I went to https://www.twitch.tv and nor with the stream on the home page nor with a randomly picked one I was able to reproduce the issue. It does uses a lot of memory but Opera never went 'out of memory'.

    I'm on Windows 10 running on a I5-4590 with 8GB of RAM and a Intel HD4600 graphic card if that matters.

  • It happened on Clixsense.com, engageme.tv after watching some videos.

  • Today I was only able to watch 5 videos on EnganeMe.Tv and Opera said out of memory. I'm clearing the cache each time to see if it helps but no luck.

  • Mem Reduct 3.2 Portable - Install. This will help you.

  • Can confirm memory leak. Happens both on youtube and twitch, haven't tested any other livestreaming sites yet.

    I've opened a stream in incognito mode and left it open while I was registering here. Here are three screenshots of my task manager. First picture taken right after I've opened a stream, second one about 5 minutes later and next one 10 or 15 minutes later. As I writing this post, it's already at 1 gigabyte.

  • Having the same issue just scrolling Facebook looking for an old post from a few days ago but constant crash with OOM.

    Running i7 with 6GB Memory

  • It happened on Clixsense.com

    Couldn't reproduce on this one.

    engageme.tv after watching some videos.

    Couldn't test as it says that it can't show me videos at the moment.

  • Going to switch to other browser until this is fixed. Honestly I lost trust in Opera completely after this. Such a terrible bug released into production , don't they test these things anymore?

    I am having the same issues. With 5 tabs open (mainly text sites/video sites) Opera sucks up 2-3 GB of RAM . This is insane. You are going to lose users.

    http://engageme.tv -> outofmemory for me as well.

  • Me too using V42 on Windows 7. Started happening a couple of weeks ago and happens when I have multiple tabs open on youtube.
    Very disappointing and amazed that no-one has either addressed the issue or at least recognized it.
    Have had to switch back to firefox.

  • happens when I have multiple tabs open on youtube

    What would be 'multiple tabs'? I've just opened 5 videos on Youtube without any issues so far.

  • Very disappointing and amazed that no-one has either addressed the issue or at least recognized it.

    You would be amazed at the number of people that come here and have some weird issue that no one else has experienced or even seen anywhere else. It is very hard to track something down when you can't reproduce it.

  • Still does it whith the new version of Opera. Damn i completly forget to do a print screen of my task manager.

    'That no-one else has reported'?
    There are about 10 people above with the same issue. I think there are other threads on here with similar issues as well. Is it not a coincidence that a number of people all of a sudden have the similar symptoms when previously everything was fine? Just because you can't reproduce it doesn't mean that there isn't a problem. I agree that makes it very hard to deal with, but please believe us.
