Opera_44.0.2510.857 crashing

  • <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 I also learned from an Apple discussion that a firewall is really outdated and pointless now.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.

  • Just backing up what @bleduc1 said - it is only the 'Ctrl+click -> open in new tab' that is causing the crash.

    Cmd+click works fine. As does 'right click -> open in new tab'.
    I have tested with/out external monitor, trackpad vs bluetooth mouse, laptop keyboard vs usb keyboard - all of those variables make no difference. As stated above it is only the Ctrl+click case that breaks (consistently, whatever the mouse/kb/monitor combination).

    Any updates from the dev team?

    version 44.0.2510.1218

  • @concretable,
    I'm sure it's a silly question, but after you create a new tab by Ctrl + Click, do you test entering the tab or do you close it? Entering is the part that triggers a crash for me.

  • I did go to the new tab and look at the page. No problems.

  • Opera Stable (44.0.2510.1218) is also crashing on my tMBP fairly frequently. I have analysed the following behaviours which seem to crash the browser:

    1. Ctrl+Click then open in new tab, as reported by several users above.
    2. Enter full screen in a Flash video; I don't think an HTML5 video has crashed my browser yet.
    3. When saving a file on my computer (regardless of folder location), the Save File dialog seems to crash the browser - although this doesn't seem to happen every single time, but is kind of random.

    I am automatically sending my crash reports to Opera; please PM me if you need to know my email address.

    Well, I suppose you can't PM on these forums but let me know if you require any further info... :)

    More info on scenario 2 (described above): Opera crashes frequently when I click on the green button to enter Full Screen Mode, whilst the tab I'm in is playing a video - confirmed for both Flash and HTML5 videos.

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

    Yes, besides, what does it matter? The app is signed and the signature was checked by Gatekeeper.

    @bleduc1: no mouse here, actually. Trackpad. And it's entering that triggers the crash; closing doesn't.

    @zalex108: I also stated clearly that I'd tried a fresh profile.

    But who cares. I see we've narrowed down the problem to being Ctrl+Click - triggered and Cmd+Click is a pretty good workaround.

    Confirmed: for me too: Ctrl+Click - triggered and Cmd+Click is a workaround.

    way to go @concretable and @bleduc1!

    @shinto: I suggest you start a new thread for 2 and 3.

  • Just wanted to add my 2 cents as well as this seems to be recently for me. I've updated to recent on Opera and Opera Beta.

    Problem is seen for me when I already have tabs open. When I select on a URL or linked text that I want to open into a new tab, then select the new tab, Opera closes fully. If I re-open Opera, the previous tabs are there, however doing this same process again, Opera will crash then all my opened tabs I had opened are now gone upon the next launch opening of Opera. Kind of annoying having to manually re-open tabs since I usually have about 20 tabs going.

    All other browsers like FF or Safari do not reproduce this issue on this Mac.

    Opera Next has been working up to what I presume was previous version. Like to keep using Opera. Been a good solid browser for years for me.

  • Do you use ctrl + click?
