Opera sometime crash when pasting to its URL bar

  • Opera from time to time (at least once a day) crashs when doing a paste to the URL bar. Sometimes using the Ctrl+v, mostly using the middle click. I can't tell the frequency of crash for either ways since I mostly use the middle click paste. This bug has been there since as far as 2012. The problem didn't bother me too much at first but overtime it did. There has been a forum post about a similar problem at one time before 2014, but I have not been able to find it back today, so I created this post to report the problem.

    Here is my setup:

    • Opera:

      • Version information:

        • Version: 12.16

        • Build: 1860

        • Platform: Linux

        • System: x86_64, 3.13.7-1-ARCH

      • Browser identification: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16

    • OS: Arch Linux

    Here are the steps I did to reproduce the crash:

    • Tools > Delete private Data

    • goto: www.google.com

    • select: Google.ca offered in: Francais

    • open a new tab with the '+' tab beside the first tab (lets call it tab[2])

    • middle click paste in the URL bar

    • open a new tab with the '+' tab beside tab[2] BUT close tab[2] by pressing its X before the next tab opens.

      Observation:

      • Doing this will close tab[2], but the next tab won't as requested in this step.

      • The only tab left open is the first tab on www.google.com

    • select: Google.ca offered in: Francais

    • open a new tab with the '+' tab beside the first tab (lets call it tab[2])

    • middle click paste in the URL bar multiple times at the same character position.

      Observation:

      • Opera browser will freeze for a few seconds and then closes.

      • A crash report opens up.

      • Sending the crash report fails. Even when pressing Send Again.

    Arch Linux uses systemd so to get the some more informations I did:

    sudo journalctl -xn

    Doing multiple variations of select, middle click past, close tab.

    [code]
    sudo journalctl -xn
