Opera_44.0.2510.857 crashing

  • 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 https://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/changelog-for-44/#b2510.1159 ?

    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 http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-i5-2.5-13-mid-2012-unibody-usb3-specs.html

  • 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/Opera.app/ 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 http://arc.opera.com/pub/opera/mac/ - nothing newer than 2013?!?

    To answer my own question, see my answer at https://forums.opera.com/topic/20107/wrong-info-on-obtaining-old-versions/5

    In short: ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop. 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 ...new 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.

    Well, despite Apple's architecture and functionality, we don't know anything about the users machine and if its working flawlessly.
    Some users uses Opera because his other browsers fails, then Opera, but actually it's because the system is messed, not the browser itself. Just because of that.
    Then he replied that the system is working fine, and should trust.

    Apart:
    Lately there are some virus for Mac too, despite is more secure than Windows.

    11 users has crash problem, how many of them tried a new profile?
    Seems that just Original poster, in another way, despite had no worked.

  • Hmm...I see. I guess that it's really hard to tell.

    I hope it's understood that I wasn't trying to sound arrogant. I just thought that the few things I learned might be worth sharing, but I guess it doesn't actually confirm this problem since we don't know the user's system like you said.

  • 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.

    Why are you using Control-click? I use Cmd-click on a Mac to force a link to open in a new tab. Control-click opens the context menu. Since I have a 4-button trackball, I use middle-click most of the time however. I am also now using Opera 44.0.2510.1218, which is not giving me any problems. Maybe switching to the current release would help.

  • Good thinking. Using the stylus, I realized that Cmd + Click does not result in any crashes, but for some reason, Ctrl + Click and then selecting the new tab option still does.

    Let's see if "Ctrl+Click" is causing the problem.

  • Let's see if "Ctrl+Click" is causing the problem.

    BINGO

    When I was using the mouse, I didn't have any reason to use the Ctrl key because of the right clicker on the mouse. Now that I tested the Ctrl key in addition to the mouse and not the stylus, I can confirm a crash. It looks like that is the problem.

  • Same at

    • macOS Sierra 10.12.4
    • Opera stable 44.0.2510.1218
  • Interesting. I have the same versions of MacOS and Opera, but no problem with Control-click plus choosing "new tab" for a link. I just did that with "Markdown" on this page. No crashes.
