  • Sync enabled? Extensions?

    No extensions installed.

    No synchronization.

    Ad blocker turned off.

    No shortcuts.

    Opens with prior tabs.

    A reasonably plain jane installation.

  • I tried the developer version and no improvement - opera-developer 43.0.2403.0-1

    When I open opera from the terminal, I get this:

    [--ljohnson{12:05:04}~]$ opera
    (opera:5966): libnotify-WARNING **: Failed to connect to proxy

    or this

    (opera:6207): libnotify-WARNING **: Failed to connect to proxy
  • Disable Hardware Acceleration.

  • Hardware acceleration disabled, no change in launch time.

  • How many bookmarks do you have? I'm going to presume this is not some really slow processor with tiny amounts of RAM - as Opera 4x is based on Chromium it does not run well in < 2GB RAM.

  • No bookmarks (are you kidding? who would use bookmarks in a browser that takes 26 seconds to open)

    Chromium and Chrome and Foxfire and Vivaldi all launch in less than three seconds.

    using Opera 42.0 on 64bit XFCE/archlinux

  • libnotify-WARNING **: Failed to connect to proxy

    Means that opera could not connect to a notification server. Either because there is no notification server or it is not launched.
    In my case there was no notification server. Instaling one helped, opera finaly is starting normally.

    I know the thread is old but maybe it will help someone in the future.
