Browser sometimes won't open a address
I opened a new browser tab, typed a new address, pressed enter. The typed address is cleared and the browser just does not open the address. It stays on the speed dial page like if I haven't typed anything.
I have 3 other tabs open. All my extensions have been disabled already and the browser has been closed and opened again.
I am running Opera on Windows 10 and am currently using version 44.0.2510.1159 (PGO).
Any help would be much appreciated.
What is the address?
There are MANY addresses that this happens. It's actually pretty random and weird as heck.
For example: if I type maps.google.com it won't open. If I open on another browser, get the exact position I want and copy-paste the link on opera, it opens.
It is hell trying to use reddit with so many links to different websites. Sometimes not even imgur will open. Lots of broken links and many news and articles just don't open.
I'm not sure what is going on but this is making Opera almost unusable.
Try disabling it. It's a possibility, however small.
I'm having a similar problem (Windows 10, Opera 44.0.2510.849). However, I've noticed that the only time it consistently won't open a new address (it gives me a black page with nothing on it) is when I open the link into a new tab from an email. It's particularly bad with hotmail. If I cut and paste the exact same link, it will open fine in a new tab I create.
I did a full uninstall, did what I was told (http://help.opera.com/Windows/12.10/en/crash.html) to do to create on a new folder as a stand alone installation and now things are finally working out.
I'll update here again in case the problem shows up again.
Thanks for the help!

Those instructions are for old Opera Presto and not for current versions.

If a new profile solved the issue, it means that something in the old profile was broken.
Commonly speaking: when Opera (or any other browser) shows serious delays in loading a page then it's often a DNS related issue and not so much a browser problem. Thing is: when the website takes too long to respond (timeout is reached) then Opera (and all its competitors) will mention this.
Yet when it seems the browser is seemingly looping into doing nothing then it's most likely DNS.
What shall be done about it?
Leo, how is one to go about it?
I, for one, know how to
- use another machine,
- use another browser,
- use another ISP,
- use another cable,
- use another power socket...
You get me.
