Crash when playing a video on Facebook

  • After the update two days ago, playing a Facebook video crashes the tab in Opera. The video plays for a second or two and then the whole tab becomes unresponsive.

  • I have just experienced the same thing, twice actually.

  • Also seems to happen in Chrome, perhaps this is some problem with Facebook not the browser.

  • Same thing here ...and is very frustrating ,almost impossible to use ..I do not know who is to blame but i hope this thing will be fix soon because in this state is imposibile to use Facebook on Opera
    X/ :down: ;_;

  • I think the problem has now resolved. I am now playing videos in Facebook without the freeze. In fact there seems to be a nice new feature in which if you scroll away from the video, a smaller version of the video is shown in the left column of the Facebook page; this was there 2 days ago, I first saw it shortly after installing the new Opera version, the feature disappeared yesterday in the freeze, but now it is back. I suppose this is a new Facebook feature and they had some trouble with it for a short time.

  • I would confirm tab freeze on, but not sure it's always only during video playing. To me it freezes in completely random situations, I'm unable to say when it happens specifically. On Chrome this issue doesn't occur...
