Opera and Opera developer now freezing

  • Every single time I open either Opera or Opera developer, it always seems to want to freeze up. I have tried closing out both browsers, but those don't seem to be working at all. Instead, I get nothing but messages saying that Opera has stopped responding and asking me to relaunch now or the browser is not responding. This never used to happen before and I have no clue why it's not working now.

  • Rename your profile folder. If the problem goes away then there is something wrong with your profile. A new, empty one should have been created so copy your bookmarks and such over to it.

    So if I don't copy my bookmarks and such, I will lose everything?

    If you just rename the profile folder, your data will still be there so you can recover it later.

    The idea is to test if the problem is being caused by a bad profile or not.

    Even with a clean profile?

    I haven't done the clean profile yet. I'm still thinking about whether or not I should do it, because if I decide to, I fear that I will lose my bookmarks.

  • Renaming the folder does nothing to the bookmarks. They are still there. If it doesn;t fix the issue you can just delete the fresh profile folder it created and rename your old profile back to what it was originally. Do all of this with the browser closed, of course.

    OK. Thank you.

  • You can also use the portable installer to create a new clean installation.

    I will try that.

  • Opera is now back to freezing up again. I have tried rebooting the computer and restarting the browser with no luck. Now I am getting nothing but a message saying that Opera is unresponsive and it is asking me if I would like to relaunch now.

  • Have you installed some 3rd party antivirus or security package?

  • I started experiencing very slow initial load time for Opera, and checked Windows Error logs for detail. Here's what I found in the Microsoft Windows Diagnostic Performance/Operational log:

    This application took longer than usual to start up, resulting in a performance degradation in the system startup process:
    File Name : opera.exe
    Friendly Name : Opera Internet Browser
    Version : 41.0.2353.69
    Total Time : 9977ms
    Degradation Time : 4977ms
    Incident Time (UTC): ‎2016‎-‎12‎-‎24T15:18:32.671600300Z

    More detail:
    EventID: 101
    OpCode: Boot Degradation

    Screenshots available.

    But Opera freezes? If not then your issue is unrelated to this topic's subject and you should open a new topic.

    Version : 41.0.2353.69

    Please try with the more recent build: 42.0.2393.94

    I have Webroot SecureAnywhere.

    And what happens if you disable it?

    I'm not sure because I haven't done it yet.

  • Now, Opera developer is no longer working anymore. It did work for a few seconds before it started freezing up again.

  • Why is Opera developer constantly freezing on me?

  • If you don't answer our questions we can't help you.
