Can't open Opera anymore

  • I can no longer open Opera on my MacBook Pro [Mac OS X 10.14 (18A391)]. Worked fine until I restarted the browser late last night. Clicking its icon yields a similar crash message every time. Restarting the laptop didn't solve the issue.

    Not used to troubleshooting on a Mac -- does Opera have a safe mode? Tried looking for one to no avail.

    Thinking about it more, I seem to recall Opera requesting my pw to update itself at some point in the last few days, but I didn't restart Opera until late last night.

    Me too. Exact same symptoms. Updated the browser today, then restarted browser (and computer, by coincidence). Now Opera crashes instead of launching. My crash log is the same (see below). If I login to the mac as admin user, Opera is ok, but not as my main (non-admin) user. And of course I need to run day to day as non-admin.

    Online incremental update (and fresh install) of Opera 56 resulted in my main (non-admin) user always crashing quickly after launching Opera. Used admin user to move Opera application bundle to the trash followed by using offline installer => https://www.opera.com/download/get/?partner=www&opsys=MacOS that allowed Opera 56.0.3015.36 application bundle to work for non-admin user.

    Keep Smiling 🙂
