Opening Inspector freezes Cinnamon

  • Hey guys! This might just be me, but since earlier today (I think there was an update today), when I press Ctrl+Shift+I to open the Inspector, Cinnamon freezes.

    Everything keeps working (e.g. I can still hear the Netflix show I'm watching), I can still move the mouse cursor but the whole desktop UI is completely frozen. Alt+F2 and r doesn't work.

    To resolve, I have to force-shut down the computer by holding down the power button.

    Version: 57.0.3098.76
    System: Linux Mint 19 (x86_64; X-Cinnamon)
    Update stream: Stable

  • Quick update:

    • Repro rate: ~5/10
    • Deleting the config folder and re-configuring Opera from scratch does not resolve the issue
    • Workaround: press CTRL+W to un-freeze Cinnamon (closing the Inspector window that triggered the issue)
