Opera closes suddenly

  • I deleted opera and downloaded the latest version.
    When I'm starting the application, suddenly Opera closes and it does not get to start
    What can i do?

  • This has never happened to me before. Opera just keeps on crashing. and i cannot access it or its preferences. what to do? how can I back up?

    I am using Mac

  • My first thought would be a corrupted Preference fileโ€”just deleting Opera wouldn't delete that. I'd try moving the Opera preferences file (com.operasoftware.Opera.plist) out of ~/Library/Preferences/ (Hold down Alt while clicking on "Go" menu in Finder and choose Library ๐Ÿ™‚ ) onto the desktop then opening Opera. It will create a new Preference file.

    If it opens then, you'll have to reset all your preferences. If it doesn't, I'd then delete Opera, re-download, then turn off your anti-virus while re-installing.

    The other thing would be to use AppDelete to delete Opera and all its ancillary files wherever they're stored, download a new installer and start again from scratch.

    But I'd first try with the Preferences.

  • After updating to Mojave Opera crashes immediately on my family member's account on my mac. On mine it works fine. I tried removing the preferences and reinstalling Opera but it did not work.

  • @trickst3r Same problem here. Opera only seems to work for the user that installs it, even when the install is for all users ๐Ÿ˜•

    Replicated online incremental and fresh install only working for user that installed it on macOS 10.13.6 so used admin user to trash Opera 56.0 bundle followed by trying offline installer => https://www.opera.com/download/get/?partner=www&opsys=MacOS for copy of Opera 56.0.3051.36 bundle into Applications folder, which works for a non-admin user.

    Keep Smiling ๐Ÿ™‚
