How to delete profile and start fresh - Opera crashes every 10 seconds

  • I am on ubuntu 16.04 using Opera Developer 43
    it crashes every 10 seconds ...
    Where is directory storing current profile ? I need to delete it.
    I have already removed/purged the ubuntu package and re-installed - no help
    I have also deleted cache ... No help
    rm -rf ./.cache/opera*

    Since Opera crashes so quickly I am NOT looking for an Opera UI to do this since it will crash before I will be able to interact with a running Opera browser

    Version: 43.0.2412.0 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: developer
    System: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (x86_64; Unity)

    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2896.3 Safari/537.36 OPR/43.0.2412.0 (Edition developer)

  • In attempt to discover a command line parameter to delete profile I was hoping this would list such

    opera-developer --help

    No help on that monster list

  • Are you looking in ~/.config/opera ?

  • Thanks - I have deleted that now ... No help still crashes every 10 seconds or so

    rm -rf ~/.config/opera*

    rm -rf ~/.cache/opera*

    I want to use Opera yet cannot ... Suggestions ?

  • Here is what dmesg shows once I launch opera

  • I installed opera-stable which runs just fine

       opera-stable_41.0.2353.56_amd64.deb
    

    I also totally removed opera-developer and reinstalled then when I launched it
    confirmed the Ad Block preference is OFF ... still crashes

       opera-developer_43.0.2412.0_amd64.deb
    

    Also I just installed opera-beta which also crashes same as opera-developer crashes

       opera-beta_42.0.2393.38_amd64.deb
