[Solved]Latest Opera Mini crashes when clicking on settings

  • I have an iPhone 6 Plus with the latest IOS (10.3.3). I just updated Opera Mini to the latest version (16.0.0).

    Firstly, I hate the changes.

    1. I hate the red box around the search bar at the top of the screen. Very distracting.
    2. I hate that they moved the button for switching tabs (which has been at the bottom right for years), and instead put the settings button at the bottom right. I constantly click it by mistake.
    3. I hate that the home page now has news, etc. at the bottom, which makes it take a little longer to load. I prefer to have a page with just my bookmarks.

    But back to my main concern. Now if I click on the settings button at the bottom right, the app just closes. I can no longer change any settings. I tried force closing the app. Shutting down and restarting my phone. And holding power + home to restart clearing the cache. Nothing works.

    Anyone else having the issue or have any suggestions?
    I was going to contact opera but I only found phone numbers, no technical support e-mail, unless I'm missing it.

    Thank you.

  • I agree with all points you made about the changes. Specially about home screen full of news (hate it).
    And I am also facing the same problem, I have iPhone 6 and the app crashes when I click settings.

  • Yep, major disappointment .. moving back to firefox on IOS. it give a true full screen browser, more website site less browser

  • I have the same issue. I updated to latest opera mini 16.0.0 today on my Iphone SE. When i tap on the menu (opera logo at bottom right) the app closes itself.
    @opera team. Please give us an update ASAP after fixing this bug. Because we can't access anythink on opera mini menu.

    Thank you

  • Well i decided to uninstall the app, copying down all my bookmarks first. Then i reinstalled it. I chose to install it from the list of apps i used to have installed and that actually installed the previos version. I thought of just staying with that but i got the message that an update is available so i updated it again and now it doesn't crash. Unfortunately i had to re enter all my bokkmarks and all my saved passwords again. And i still have to deal with all the horrible changes. But it doesn't crash at settings anymore.
