Opera crashing/locking up/freezing very frequently. Known cause?

  • This has been happening with more frequency lately. Is there a cause that I can troubleshoot?
    It is so frustrating I am ready to switch browsers.....

  • Firstly make a Profile Back Up (look at the signature).

    Then,
    take a look here.
    As an addition, Shift+Esc and check if there is any extension eating extra resources.


    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Test profile | Back up Linux · Mac · Win

  • Try disabling Opera Sync.
    More and more people are reporting this lately.

    All my Opera Desktop installations (Linux, Windows) are having this problem for more than a month now (since Opera 45). A new profile didn't work.
