Opera_44.0.2510.857 crashing

  • I created another user account on the mac, logged into the account, installed 44.0.2510.857 in that account and Opera still crashes on startup.

    It's another way to create a clean profile :lol:

    Now I don't know how to continue... I could try cCleaner or similar app, or fix the disk permissions.

    It's there any event viewer?

    It's the rest of the system working fine?

  • The rest of the system works fine. Unfortunately I cannot upgrade the OS any further due to the age of the Mac so I will stick with the version of Opera I am using.

  • Me too. MacBookPro OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, Opera 44.0.2510.857. The crashing is definitely related to opening links in new tabs. In my experience when you Ctrl+Click and Open In New Tab it doesn't crash until you actually go to the new tab. Happens pretty much every time for me. Only since the version 44 upgrade.
    Surely the admins have seen hundreds of crash reports sent in - is there any comment from one of the developers?

  • April 5th and I'm having the same issue. Control-Click to open a link in a new tab, watch it load, go to click on it and... Opera crashes.

    I've got a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), with Sierra.

    Ironically, I went to the About page for Opera to see what version I was running and it downloaded an update. Now it's running Version 44.0.2510.1159, and the crashing... still persists.

    I ran a test before and and after the update and recorded it both times, if anyone wants links I can upload them to YouTube. I'm going to try a full restart of my computer as a third test, I'll report back in when I'm done.

  • Hello again,
    I have a strange update to add. I no longer face a crash when I open links in new tabs. I'm not sure why it's not acting up any anymore. I already sent a bug report on this too.

  • Sorry for the double post, but I just figured something out, and I think I made a mistake in the bug report I sent. I connected a mouse, and I am not facing this issue when I open links in new tabs now. If I use a stylus pen (Ugee 2150) to open a tab, I do face a crash. I previously assumed a mouse would do the same, but I'm seeing it doesn't. I'll make sure I test everything fully next time.

    For anyone else who is facing this issue, are you using a tablet device of any kind?

  • How do I download 43.0.2442.1165 ? I can't find it at - nothing newer than 2013?!?

  • Following up on my last post (which is awaiting approval):

    Opening the 'here' link at in a new tab and clicking on the new tab reliably crashes Opera, including 44.0.2510.1159, which I just updated to.

  • More or less the same issue here. The crash happens when I click on the new tab. I installed Opera for the first time in years three days or so ago and it's crashed about 20 times since then.
    Opera 44.0.2510.857 like the OP - horribly unstable.
    Why is there no entry for Opera 44.0.2510.857 at ?

    Trying the latest / next version I was just notified of - .1159; will go back like OP if that doesn't work. (Oh, it's what I'm running now, thanks to auto-update...

    Sierra 10.12.4 Beta (16E175b) on

  • I just updated to 44.0.2510.1159 and the issue is fixed on my Mac.

  • I noticed that Opera installed in
    /Applications/Opera (1).app/ while
    /Applications/ is a version from 2007.

    Is it common for Opera to install that way or is that likely the issue?

  • I started with a clean profile and cache and still have the same problem.

    Opening any link in a new tab (by right clicking) and clicking on the new tab reliably crashes Opera, including 44.0.2510.1159, which I recently updated to, and 44.0.2510.857. On a MacBookPro9,2 with 10.12.4 Beta (16E175b).

    How do I disable autoupdate on Mac?

  • How do I download 43.0.2442.1165 ? I can't find it at - nothing newer than 2013?!?

    To answer my own question, see my answer at

    In short: Sadly, these downloads are insecure.

  • I installed 43.0.2442.1165. WFM too.

    Unfortunately, it's auto-updated to the latest:

    "43.0.2442.1165 - Restart Opera to update to version 44.0.2510.1159 Relaunch Now"

    🇳🇴 :scared: ;_; :down: X/ :rip:

  • cCleaner or something?

  • Still crashes on new release 44.0.2510.1218.

  • Me too 44.0.2510.1218 crashes as before: "Opening any link in a new tab (by right clicking) and clicking on the new tab reliably crashes Opera." I was asked, "Could you try setting up an identifier so we can track your crash report in our database?"
    and ran a defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPCrashEmail [...] command just now to do so.

    @bleduc1: Not using a tablet device of any kind. Never have. Seems like @sparky132, @starkrogers, @smparis? and I have this tab issue on 4 very different MacBook Pros.

    Hey, what extensions do you guys have? I just have lastpass. Same crash with it disabled.

  • <deleteme> (blanked intentionally - since I can't delete.)

  • @mrelvey Did you try to download the installer from the official Opera website?

  • I wonder why this issue varies for people who use the same operating system and same version of Opera. I only face the crash if I use my stylus pen. Mrelvery faces it with a mouse. Do you have any additional third party software or something that might be conflicting with Opera?

    Zalex108, I am sorry to disagree, but I don't think CCleaner or any cleaning software would really come handy in this case. Learning a great deal on the Apple forums, cleaning software and anti-virus programs are more useful for Windows users, but Mac has maintenance scripts already built in. Of course, it can't hurt, but I'm not sure it would be effective. I also learned from an Apple discussion that a firewall is really outdated and pointless now. It's the VPN that matters and provides better security. I just thought that those were some pretty impressive things to share.
