[Solved] Sidebar crashes browser

  • Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

    Dev v48.0.2664.0 AND v46.0.2597.57 Stable (Both started in private window)

    • Right click sidebar to show menu
    • Left click "Sidebar settings" (on right click menu)
    • Both versions crash the browser.

    Hope this assists Opera. Repeated several times but no big deal at this time (for me).

    Also, "SNAP" icon not yet showing in Developer v48 as above.

    It's always better to wait for a confirmation before reporting an issue. Or just report it before and then create a post here informing the problem and the bug ID (without the @ part) for discussion and reference.

    BTW, I couldn't reproduce the crash here on Windows 10.

    Also, "SNAP" icon not yet showing in Developer v48 as above.

    I can see it here, just above 'Speed Dial' icon on the side bar. Note that you need to have the sidebar pinned to see it.

  • I tried Windows 7 and I'm not able to reproduce this neither. Also, Snap icon is visible.

  • Hi kmielczarczyk. Further info and results for you (checked many times over)

    Have two machines, one running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, the other Windows 10 Home (version 1607) 64-bit.

    This issue tried on both machines using v46.0.2597.57 Stable; v47.0.2631.28 beta; and v48.0.2664.0 developer.

    All versions started in private window. On taskbar shortcut, I added -private to target line (after leaving one space).

    In all above versions on both machines when sidebar is pinned there is no problem when right clicking sidebar, then left click "sidebar settings". I confirm Snap icon only visible when v48 sidebar is pinned. Thank you.

    • In all above versions on both machines when sidebar is unpinned, right click sidebar then left click "sidebar settings" and the browser crashes as described - both machines, all three versions, and I've reproduced this every time.

    Thanks for your valuable work on the browsers and hope this assists.

  • GOOD NEWS UPDATE FOR DEVS - SOLVED

    In all above versions on both machines when sidebar is unpinned, right click sidebar then left click "sidebar settings" and the browser crashes as described - both machines, all three versions, and I've reproduced this every time.

    • In all current Opera versions, the above is fixed. When you now right click unpinned sidebar, then left click "sidebar settings", it opens a new window to settings and no longer crashes the browser. Many thanks. :)
