Opera gradually slows down with use.

  • Hello,

    I've been having a problem lately that the browser gradually slows down when I have it open. Windows task manager has unusually many services running for opera even when im working with just a few tabs. The only fix i have right now is closing the browser every 20-60 minutes so it closes all the services down. I suspect that there is a problem where opera keeps the tabs open in the background somehow or doesnt close the services so over time it really eats up memory. This problem started about 2 weeks ago and im not aware of any changes ive done to my pc or the browser that could have caused this.

    It is also noteworthy that the task manager has a service running for "Opera crash report" which indicates that there indeed is a problem but the actual crash report or no error reports show up.

    Thank you in advance.

  • No, the crash reporter has to run as a separate service while Opera is running to be able to catch a crash if it occurs. That one is fine. You running Stable, Beta, or Developer?
