Opera 44 is stuck on opening page

  • I have used Opera for a while now but I updated it to issue 44 and now it doesn't do anything apart from opening.
    I am using Windows 10 32 bit
    I have checked for extensions - there are none.
    I have retried after turning off AVG anti virus - no joy.

    All my bookmarks are present and a fair few speed dial icons but when I press an icon or link or speed link or type and address, the "wait a sec" circular arrow at extreme top left turns clockwise but the browser does not connect. My Chrome browser and Edge browsers are working normally, ie connecting to pages etc.

    I am presuming this trouble has been caused by the update, but I have no idea really.

    Any suggestions ?

  • Welcome to Opera's forum @Lankidave!

    Is there any VPN (orange) icon in the address bar?
    If so, click > Switch off > Refresh, test

    ··· IF NOT ···

    Try to navigate from OMenu > New private window
    If so:

    • Do you have any extension?
      Try disabling them, test. (Proxy extensions could block the navigation if they stop working)

    • Ctrl + Shift + Del and clean # 4 and 7, refresh or restart, test.

    • Still problems?
      Ctrl + Shift + Del and add to the clean # 3, refresh or restart, test.

    ··· STILL? ···

    Create a new profile (clean profile), Steps on forum's "FAQ..."
    You'll need to set up Opera again.

    For Bookmarks, OHelp > Find solution > Back Up
    Or if works, use OSync.
