Opera 21 Terrible Lag!

  • After update Opera freezes at start. No tabs are opened, no add-ons are installed. Win 8.1 x64. It is very very sad to me.

    Any Speed Dials?

    Any Speed Dials?

    Yes, default speed-dials. But before update it was OK.

  • Try renaming favorites* .* just to test if it makes any difference.

    Btw, have you changed any flags?

  • No, I didn't change anything in Opera, OS or Hardware, just installed an update. Renaming favorites did not help.

    I've noticed that browser unfreezes after a time (10-30 minutes).

  • Have added your SD entries again after renaming favorites*.* or the problem continues even without a SD entry?

  • Yes, the problem continues with an empty SD-list.

  • Actually I have a similiar problem. Also Win 8.x 64bit. I realized it just freezes with certain pages (Facebook being one,der-postillion.com and ashwinder.sycophanthex.com others, all three work in Firefox). At first it starts off as a really long loading time and then turns into freezing opera and eventually the entire system.
    Funny thing: I haven't changed a thing with opera except updating. It has only become this worse lately though.
    Any ideas? I pretty lost with this, especially as my knowledge about computers is pretty basic. I tried clearing the cache first thing but it didn't help.

  • Yes, the problem continues with an empty SD-list.

    Have you tried with a new profile folder? Rename the current one, so Opera will create a new one, and see if the lag still happens.

  • I had a lot of issues with Opera 21 in XP SP3. Every time I opened a new tab Opera lag or freeze some seconds, 10 to 30 sometimes even more. It also happened when I tried to write in the address bar. Tried disabling extension and cleaning my speed dial but nothing worked. Then I just reinstalled Opera 20 end everything is working fine. There's something really wrong with Opera 21.

  • I'm experiencing this lag too since the update, and ONLY since the update. I used to be able to have 30-40 tabs open in OPera and no lag. Now it's horrible with just a handful of tabs open.

  • It is lagging here to load some pages.

  • I've been working just some hours with Opera 22 and everything looks fine. No lags opening tabs, no freezes typing on the address bar 🙂

  • I have the same problem. He improved reasonably in Opera 22. But it's still something chronic. Chrome is also the same problem. It seems to be a problem in the engine.

  • No problems in my computer, and it's nearly 10 years old...

  • The problem appears when we use the computer without the browser running with many tabs open.
    When resumed, the browser is very slow, locking heavy pages like youtube.

    Looks like it's a memory problem.

    The solution has been to restart the browser.

  • Looks like it's a memory problem.

    Or a flash plug-in problem ?.

    Unfortunately, it is not.

    What makes you come to this conclusion ?.

    Why the flash works well in the browser. Passed the test from the Adobe site, other applications. And never had problems with it.

    Ok, fair enough.
