how can I recover my last session?

  • @leocg
    that the last session file might get corrupted and they should save the session or use some sessionbuddy or something similar because if you are a firefox user and want to switch to opera due to the firefox frequent crashes you might forget that youre going to have to deal with that old issue which firefox fixed and even has a restore previous session button... but then again it has its own set of issues.

  • And how Opera would suppose to know that the file is going to be corrupted?

  • @leocg
    looks like other people have that issue too?
    and theres those files who got changed in the opera folder when it crashed ... and after that it rebooted with the home page.

  • @erik1000 You are not alone!

    I have had this happen a couple of times as well, where ropening Opera did not load the previous session and I was unable to retrieve my session.

    I currently make ‘snapshots’ of all my tabs twice daily by right-clicking any tab and selecting “Save All Tabs as Speed Dial Folder”. This ensures that I have a backup of the tabs I am still meaning to read but have ‘aged’ in my History, making it a nightmare to recover (if I am still able to remember part of the page name or URL), while still allowing the tabs that are unrecoverable be in today’s History.

    This, together with the Close Tab shortcut functionality randomly closing the whole window (https://forums.opera.com/topic/29322/cmd-w-closes-the-window-instead-of-the-tab/2) makes Opera more and more a nightmare to use as main browser…

  • @rogbar
    oh happened again just now! only had a few tabs on. is Opera updating stuff in the background ?

  • What exactly happened?

  • @leocg
    it crashed. everything was gone and the browser powered up with the home page...nothing in the opera folder changed though. also nothing shows up at previous versions. Something is going on with the browser.

  • Did you check your hardware? The crash may be related to hardware issues, a bad driver, etc.

    Also, did you ever change anything at opera://flags? Some of those experiments may cause crashes.

    Try also to see if the crash happens always in the same situation.

    I have a gamers laptop that is new with lots of ram memory and also didnt have anything else on. it worked before just fine with many tabs on. I read a lot and also need to do research for work. this time I only had a couple of tabs on. I didnt experiment with changing anything because Im not computer savy so I dont wanna mess with it . Im actually a girl and was looking at a website that sells decorative items. It is a basic website . It never crashed opera before. I know the websites that would slow it down. its not one of them.
    I used to have many tabs on and it would rarely crash but it would save the session . right now it shuts down and opens up the home page.

  • This happend again just now, restarted computer, opened Opera, all my previously opened tabs are gone, and I’m presented with an empty window.

    I am unable to recover my previous tabs via the History menu. This is so annoying.

    Can anyone guide me to recover a corrupted session on OS-X?
