Opera 53 issue: "loading.... - Opera" on the top bar

  • So, today opera 53.0.2907.99 shows up on update manager (linux mint 17 mate), I updated it, it seemed to install fine, no error messages or the like, started it and all I get is an opera window that's blank and says "loading.... - Opera" on the top bar, after a good long wait it seemd to be doing nothing and not responding, is there a way to make it work?
    I did a system restore to just before I updated so I could have a working version of opera for the time being.

  • Correct me if I am wrong, but mint 17.3 is based on ubuntu 14.04 and for that reason opera 51+ should not even install due to a missing dependency, as discussed here

    However, if there is a corrupt profile that prevents it from starting, with opera not running, backup your ~/.config/opera folder first, then delete it, and then launch opera again, forcing it to make a new profile folder. If it does launch, then it is a profile problem. If it does not launch, well, you should look elsewhere.
