Google Maps not working

  • Hello folks,

    I'm a bit late to the party - but I fully concur.

    For me also HWA "on" solves this problem. But then (I've just posted a new thread) all CNN-videos get stuck within seconds and only manually going back ~2 seconds will play them for another ~5 seconds. So this site turns unusable with this setting.

    Could you please check if that same consequence occurs on your systems?

    Until Opera 45 you could then turn HWA "off" - and CNN-videos would play normally BUT "Google maps" (and some other sites) would work well with only minimal delay.

    Unfortunately (as I've explained in the new thread) until Opera 45 videos would not play "full-screen" on a 4K-display - but would rather play in native resolution in the upper left corner instead. This issue seems now resolved in Opera 46 - but at what cost! Without HWA even pretty basic sites seem to load (blinking busy cursor) for 15 seconds and more and sites like "Google maps" will never proceed to the final navigational layers.

    So please could you all check out if with HWA set "on" your CNN-videos get stuck within seconds, too?

    greetings

    Tom

  • Hello folks,

    could someone please give the CNN-videos a try with the HWA setting to "on"? Do they hang or will they play normal? Anybody?

    greetings

    Please open a different topic to discuss about issues on CNN videos.

  • This happens when you go to Zillow and click on a property to view. The property info loads over Google maps and the tab essentially freezes. The circulating arrow in the tab will keep spinning and the tab (and page) becomes unresponsive. It takes a number of clicks to close the tab out. Once closed, Opera will function normally. This seems to have started with one of the version 46 updates. When I try to do the same thing, open a Zillow property in Edge or Firefox, there are no issues. Thanks.

  • Unfortunately now with v.46.0.2597.61 out, the problems discussed here still persist unaltered.

    greetings

  • Is it possible to roll back to a prior version? If yes, someone please tell me how to do that.

    This is becoming a big issue for me and if it's not resolved soon, I will have to resort to a different browser.

  • Is it possible to roll back to a prior version?

    Yes, just download it, install while offline, disable auto-update and use it.

  • Same issue for me on 46.0.2597.57 (PGO) Windows Server 2008 R2, ATI Radeon x1300Pro (driver v8.383.0.0 (6/13/2007) since ATI doesn't have a a newer driver for this OS).

  • I have the same issue, glad I found this post as I was not sure which software causes the problem. Google Maps (except for Google Maps Lite) and Zillow are unusable. I hope this is fixed soon.

    The issue doesn't occur with Vivaldi 1.10 on the same computer, so issue is probably not video card driver related.
