Facebook and Other Pages Stop Loading Part-Way

  • Hi, I use the latest stable version of Opera, and I'm on Windows 7. I find that a lot of the time when I refresh a page, it will load part-way (It'll tell me 12/13 elements loaded or something) and just stop. I'll just let it sit there sometimes and when this happens it never loads the rest of the way. One time I waited over 10 minutes!

    I've found that the issue is more common when I try to open multiple pages in new tabs in succession; none of them will load. I've found that it happens a lot on facebook, but it also happens on other pages seemingly randomly. Whenever this happens, opera seemingly stops being able to load anything and I have to close and reopen it.

    I'd say this happens 10-15 times per day.

    I should mention that this doesn't happen with other browsers such as chrome.

  • I'm guessing Opera (Presto) 12.17 ?, judging by the description you have given of Opera.

  • Yeah.

  • Seeing as you are using Windows, have you thought about trying out the even newer version of Opera ?.

    Available from Opera's main page.

    The reason why I say/offer the above suggestion, is that the current version of Opera you are using is not supported any more, and any problems/bugs etc that exist now or in the future, will never be fixed.
