  • Opera 50 in Win 10 crashes then restarts when I even hover over bookmarks in Menu. Rebooted windows, no help, Nothing else in Menu crashes Opera.

  • I have the same problem. In fact i found this thread when i searched for the problem on google. It also crashes when i try to log in to the opera account with facebook.

  • Follow the Opera Reset / Back up links from the signature to know about you profile files.

    Use the keyboard shortcuts:

    • Win+R
    • Type %appdata% + Enter
    • Navigate to Opera Software
    • There is you Profile, named Data - probably -
    • Rename it
    • Launch Opera - will be fresh, also known as a Clean profile -
    • Try some testing on that profile

    If works

    • Try importing one by one your needed files from the renamed profile folder.

    As it seems that the profile is broken, do it one by one, at some point you would find the problem source and we have to avoid it - find the source is good too -.

    Also, try to remember if you have installed any extension or program before, any system change or if any Windows update has been installed.

    If needed, navigate to

    • %appdata% > Local > Opera Software
      | and delete the Cache folder.

    PS 2:
    All this Paths are for a default install settings.

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

  • About the Bookmarks problem, if persist, try to download Opera Beta or Opera Developer from Blogs site.

    • Run it and install it as StandAlone - look at options -
    • Paste the Bookmarks file into the profile folder - Data inside the Opera folder -
    • Check if still happens
      If fixed,
    • Export them and Import them to the Stable version
  • I have the exact same issue with Opera 50.0.2762.67 Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (x86_64)
    Even with a fresh install and new profile, after connecting to opera sync, once my bookmarks are synced, I have the issue.

    It seems that Opera may not handle some of my bookmarks, but which ones? (I have so many thousands, that testing them all would take several years...).

    However, on the bookmarks page (cliking on the Heart Icon in the left bar) I have no issues.

  • I unabled everything in Opera/flags, didn't help

  • Disabling hardware acceleration makes any difference?

  • Same happens here. Have disabled hw accel, no difference. I have my bookmarks toolbar visible and clicking the ">>" button to see more doesn't cause Opera to crash. Hovering the mouse over the Bookmarks menu item (which is supposed to trigger opening a second pane with my bookmarks in it) crashes Opera in just a couple seconds (barely enough time to notice the orb appear, signaling that it probably should be trying to load them).

    This is unlikely related to the user's profile and more likely a bug (to be addressed soon, hopefully).
