Opera lagging when in the settings page

  • Hello,

    Opera for me has been lagging HEAVILY whenever I open my settings page. I can't really explain it, as the nothing else lags at all. Scrolling, clicking, general loading, all of it has been lagging out of its mind. Even closing the page lags.

    Any ideas for solutions?

  • Is this a standalone installation of Opera that's on a slow USB drive or something?

    Download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation" and install. Everything work fine in that Opera? If so, then it's almost definitely something wrong with your Opera profile.

    Do you have a lot of extensions or bookmarks? When was the last time you cleared Opera's history (cache at least, but the more the merrier).

    You could try going to "Menu -> settings -> browser -> Reset Opera" and reset Opera's settings. (It tells you what is does and doesn't do.)

    Have you messed with opera://flags at all? You could reset those if you have and then readjust the ones you want.

  • @burnout426 Cleared cache yesterday, Opera is on my SSD. Not many extensions or bookmarks. Haven't touched opera://flags, don't know what that is tbh. I'll try reinstalling. Getting to the reset options takes 30ish minutes, and I'm not sure it would work.

  • can you look at?
