[Solved]Opera stops responding after rapid video navigation in YouTube

  • Description

    Opera comes to a complete halt after a couple of navigations on YouTube videos. The number of jumps on the video required to crash Opera is between 4 to 10 jumps, even after closing the video and start jumping on another video.

    The Opera task within Task Manager doesn't show any disruptive behavior ( 100% CPU or 100% disk ). Actually, it's like Opera gone completely to idle, with minimal CPU and disk usage.

    I've tried to deactivate all extensions, shutting down the anti-virus and cleaned the Profile folder, with no results.

    Steps to reproduce

    Open Opera, navigate to YouTube, pick a video and start jumping in the video timeline.

    Actual result

    Opera coming to a complete halt after some video jumps.

    Expected result

    No crash at all, or, at least, crashing only the open tab.

    It seems that the problem was with Hardware Acceleration. Disabling it resolved the issue.
