[Solved]Opera freezes on launch, Mac

  • I'm trying out Opera 60.0.3255.95 on macOS Mojave. I have two computers. I enabled syncing via an Opera account and now on my first computer I set it up on, Opera freezes upon launch with a macOS beachball. I am unable to get to preferences or anything to try switching off syncing. Opera is unusable.
    Any suggestions? Thanks

  • Try accessing and renaming the profile.

    Follow Opera Reset / Back up link from the signature.

    If cannot access it because you are on the problematic machine, look at here.

  • @zalex108 Thank you for the reply and the edits to your post. I had to find the path to my user data and could not find it before. I deleted the ~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera folder and everything seems to be working properly after re-syncing. Thank you.

  • Good! 👍🏿
