Opera Crashed, How do I recover my tabs?

  • Thank you very much for your help!

  • Does that mean you were successful in restoring them by replacing "Current Session" (while Opera was closed) with a copy of "Last Session" (made before Opera closed)?

  • Nope. I followed your directions and it looked like it could have worked. Unfortunately the last session data was blank after crashing and then having restarting issues. At least in theory if someone else has this problem and searches the web for a solution I think your advice has a chance of helping them.

  • 😞

    One thing you can do every once in a while is to right-click on the tab bar or tab and choose "save all tabs to a speed dial folder". Then, if something like this happens, you can right-click on the folder and choose "open all in new tabs".

    You can also goto opera://bookmarks and export your bookmarks every once in a while so that that speed dial folder is backed up.

    It's manual, but it might help.

    On another note, I post a link to one of the session extensions that might help as soon as a find the old thread on here.

  • Didn't find the exact thread I wanted to find, but the extension is Session Buddy.

  • And again..
    Again I face this shit. Fuc..g Microsoft with their unavoidable updates and opera which session crashes during these updates. Just several MB cost to people hours to restore tabs by hands and to restore only part of it sometimes. Opera developers, please make more restore points. Save current tabs to speed dial folder is quite compute intensive and one doesn't want to do it often.

  • @queensnow Windows updated and restarted on you automatically while Opera was running?

  • @burnout426
    Yes, it restarted while I was not using computer. Computer was in sleep mode. I'm using Insider Preview Windows. I've seen somewhere that in case of windows updates opera's session crashes.

    One of the development principles is "user data are safe". Hope opera will take this into consideration

  • @burnout426 said in Opera Crashed, How do I recover my tabs?:

    There's a "Last session" file that you might be able to copy to a safe place if you haven't closed Opera yet and if it's not also corrupted. Then, you could replace the Current Session file with it while Opera is closed. Don't know if it'll work.

    But, you can look at the Last Session file with a text editor to see if it even has the list of open tabs in there.

    Can you please come my new thread and try help burnout https://forums.opera.com/topic/45115/current-session-and-previous-session-name-have-changed
    cause your fix is not valid any longer, cause "last session files" files are replaced by new session files

  • Mine keeps crashing too
