Opera Crashing after latest updates

  • Now, I will keep it short.

    About a month ago, a new update rolled out, the one that made the "close" , "minize" etc. buttons all the same size. (prior to that the X (close button) was about 2 times bigger than the the other 2) .

    Ever since this update , my PC running windows 8.1 64bit has the browser crashing almost every time when open a private mode window and close it , use the VPN or both.

    My Surface Pro 4 , running Windows 10 also has this problem but it happens on very rare occasions.

    A few side notes , I have some Chrome Extensions installed but the don't case any problems because I tried disabling them ( by the way thank you VERY MUCH for supporting Chrome extension and for the built in VPN , its saved my a lot of time ! )

    I am going to be downgrading my Opera right now but just wanted you to know that there is something wrong with these newer versions of the browser which makes them unstable.

  • Ok, just downgraded to Opera_40.0.2308.90_Setup

    Previously had 45 or 46 , this is just the best one , it runs super smooth on all of my devices ranging from Windows 8 / 10 .

  • One question , how do I stop updates ?

    I removed the task from task-sheduler but it keeps downloading the update and asking me to update ever time I open the browser.

  • how do I stop updates ?
