Opera constantly resizes itself

  • Hey All,
    I'm new here, however, I have been having some issues with build 60.0.3255.70 constantly resizing itself every time I use the mouse or tab button to navigate tab/link/bookmark ect.... Normally, I have Opera open and set to take up the full screen (maximized) however, the way Opera has been behaving it doesn't stay maximized for long, it changes sizes anywhere from x4 my monitors size, down to just barely large enough to have the X close button. Would any of you folks know how I could go about fixing this? Opera devs have been zero help here at all.

  • First, download the 60.0.3255.70 installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation", adjust the checkboxes as you like and install. Test in that Opera (don't enable Opera Sync and don't install any extensions). Does it happen there too? If not, we can look at issues with your Opera profile.

  • @burnout426 Thank you, and sorry about not getting back with you sooner; running Opera like you suggested, I have no issues with the size constantly resizing.

  • Okay, since it works in a fresh profile, we need to figure out what's going on with your normal profile. Do you have any extensions installed? If so, disable them one by one to see if you can find the culprit.

    If that's not it, you can goto the URL opera://settings/reset and reset Opera. Before you actually do the reset, it'll tell you exactly what it clears and doesn't clear before you actually do it.

  • Opera has been behaving so badly, I just went ahead and reset everything; I figure if this doesn't work, I'll just go ahead and switch browsers, I like Opera but this is horrible.

    @burnout426 thanks for all of your help, it is appreciated.
