Opera 12.18 lagging real bad after a while

Having issues with Opera 12.18, recently it started to lag real bad after using the browser a while, it keeps lagging when i switch tabs & scroll up/down pages and even changing to Opera from another window.
Everytime it happens taskbar shows it's using 2.3GB sometimes 3GB of RAM, which i have more than enough (12GB @ 36% normal load), so everytime it happens i have to use taskbar to force close Opera and reopen so i can revert to all the pages i've opened up.
I've tried clearing the cache etc, reinstalled 12.18, but still doesn't work.
I don't know if Java or Flash has any effect but i've now disabled Java to see if it helps.
Am wondering anyone else had this issue.
I love Opera 12 because you can customize all the button locations unlike Opera 14, Firefox & Chrome, but this is getting serious and i'm contemplating whether to switch to Firefox completely.

I wish opera would have pity on us and give us one last update to fix the issue. I have tried the other ones like vivaldi and otter browsers that aim to mimic opera but its just not the same
