Windows crasch

  • I really liked the earlier Opera versions, but the new version 21.0.14 seems a bit different!

    First, the bookmarks seem´s they has dissappeared. And every time Opera is started, it will work for a short moment, then it starting a lot of threads in the Task Magnager so the Windows will crasch every time.

    There are some good new´s, such when saving pictures with same name they will automatically generate a new name (2) and so on.

    Is there a way to sove this crasching problem, or is it possible to install an earlier version of Opera?

    Best regards: Mikael Makrstrom

  • Multiple threads in the Windows Task Manager is normal for this version of Opera.
    Chrome, which uses the same engine, does the same.
    It shouldn't be crashing Windows though!
    What actually happens when it crashes? Is it the whole operating system that crashes or just Opera itself?
    Do you see any error messages?
    :-)

  • You should try a clean install... Alternatively you could take some files out of your profile (directory found at About Opera in the menu), they might be the cause of the crashes. Move them elsewhere for a backup, e.g. the Local State or History file, or the thumbnails and "favorites" if you don't have many pages in Speed Dial to lose.
