Audio Indicator // Nano Adblocker crashes Opera

  • alt text

    Hi, I am using Opera for Mac 62.0.3331.101 on Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6 64-bit.

    If I use the browser without any extension activated, the audio indicator is not present and nothing happens when, for example, I play a YouTube video.

    However, if I enable Nano Adblocker, the audio indicator appears in the tab, and if I hover the mouse over the tab, the browser crashes.

    As far as I can tell, the audio indicator is not a part of Nano Adblocker, or any other Ad-blocker extension for that matter. So I don't understand why it only appears when I activate this extension and why it makes the browser crash.

    I tried with enabling/disabling opera://flags/#enable-audio-focus-enforcement but nothing changed.

    Any solution to this problem will be kindly appreciated.

  • I installed the same extensions (Nano Adblocker + Nano Defender // Install Chrome Extensions) on the Opera Developer edition version 64.0.3396.0 and the problem is not showing. Does that means the problem will be solved in a future version of Opera?

  • @apathy Most probably.
