[Solved]Lazy load tabs in background broken?

  • Hello, so when I upgraded from Opera 39 to 40 then the 'lazy load tabs in background' has broken. Before that update when I was opening my Opera (100 tabs in background) only 1 tab was loaded and I had 2 or 3 Opera processes in task manager. Now when Opera starts it loads in background about 50 tabs in background with this I get 50 processes and used a lot of RAM. The tabs are not fully loaded, because music doesn't play in background etc, they are just 'frozen' and when I click on one of these 'frozen' tabs then they get fully loaded with sound etc. Yesterday I've downloaded Vivaldi browser and there 'lazy load tabs in background' works like it was working on Opera 39 - works fantastic. Did Opera team changed something with this lazy load feature?

    I tried to delete all Opera data but it doesn't work.

    OS: Win7 64bit
    Opera: 42.0.2393.85

  • I have found the solution...

    'Only auto-reload visible tabs' set to 'disabled' and 'Extended lazy session loading' set to 'disabled' it works for me now 🙂
