Opera 45.0.2552.888 sync crash

  • Hi Guys,

    I was browsing with Opera a few minutes ago when it started crashing uncontrollably. It would start itself back up again saying that it recovered from a crash only to die again a few seconds later, or immediately if I tried to open a web page. I've done a number of things to try to identify the problem including removing my profiles, and the issue appears to occur when I sign in to my Opera account to sync my browser.

    I've made a short video to show what happens

    As you can see, the browser functions with no issues when I'm not singed into my account. The issues occur as soon as I attempt to sync.

    This happened completely out of nowhere and I'm not sure what changed with the browser to cause this issue to happen. I've always been logged into my Opera account when using the browser and I've never experienced a crash before.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Can you login to https://sync.opera.com/web/ ?

  • Versie: 45.0.2552.888 (PGO) - Dit is de meest recente versie van Opera
    Updatestream: Stable
    Systeem: Windows 10 64-bit

    Crash when login with account to synchronise, afterwards all extentions are disabled!

  • Can you login to https://sync.opera.com/web/ ?

    Yes, however it appaers like this

    I've just had the opportunity to log another computer's opera browser into my sync account and the same crash happens here.

    I've just had the opportunity to log another computer's opera browser into my sync account and the same crash happens here.

    I should also mention that this occurs on both the stable and beta versions, as tested yesterday.

  • Yes, however it appaers like this

    Try cleaning cookies and cache.

    Also, disable all extensions if you are using any. Checking anti-virus and/or similar softwares may be interesting too.

    So I've cleared cookies and cache up to the time the issue occurred. Nothing changed, still crashes when syncing.

    I've checked my antivirus and firewall. I'm only using the built-in windows firewall which currently is allowing all public and private connections for Opera Browser.

    When the crash occurrs, Opera will re-boot having automatically disabled all extensions, instructiong me that I'm able to re-enable them via the entensions menu. Nonetheless I disabled them, but the crash still occurs.

    I'm currently using Opera on a third computer. I've installed the beta version 46.0.2597.11 (PGO) as I did with the second machine yesterday, only this time it's not crashing. I have no idea what is different this time.

    Am I missing something?

  • Nothing changed, still crashes when syncing.

    I was talking about the layout issue.

  • Oh right...

    Yeah, that's the same, too.

    Two machines, and in Chrome.

  • Okay, for some inexplicable reason, the sync web page has begun working.

    Was there something you wanted me to do with it?

  • Was there something you wanted me to do with it?

    Nope, it was just to check if the problem was in your account but as you can login, I guess we can say it's not.

  • I can confirm this problem with Opera 45 on both Windows10 and Xubuntu 16.04LTS. I created a complete new local profile on Xubuntu, but that didn't help. They only solution that's working so far is disabling Opera Sync on the affected installations.

  • Hello guys, any solution to that?
    Multiple desktop versions of opera now crash with my account - latest for Win8.1, Linux Ununtu 16.10, 17.04,...
    Crashes started around time tab sync was fixed in Opera for android, in the end of June.

    No extensions are used. I need my sync between devices and bookmarks.

    It is sad, but I am forced to use other browsers.

  • Same issue here on fresh installation. Sync setting up sync just crashes browser. https://sync.opera.com/web/ works fine.

    Version: 48.0.2670.0 (PGO)
    Release: Developer
    OS: Windows 7 x64
