Out of Memory message

  • I have OOM message on 32GB even if >70% of it is free Win 10, latest opera...

  • @burnout426 Like I said. I do not open a whole lot of tabs when I am in Facebook. This is happening very frequently, but its ONLY when I am using Facebook.

    I do not receive such error messages when I am surfing in a memory heavy website such as YouTube or instagram or Twitter.

    So far, been watching hundreds of videos on YouTube and some of them on 4K 1080p preference. It does NOT show an out of memory message at all. I have been using Firefox also from time to time JUST to see if I receive such messages. I have even tried streaming a Football match once Just to see if my machine was truly having a major RAM problem. Streamed at least 3 times on separate occasions. NO such error messages.

    Even tried when I am using Facebook using FireFox. NO SUCH errors. SO that's my proof that its Definitely not my Laptop or my machine is having lack of memory issues. OPERA is the culprit in this. And I can put my finger its has something to do with the recent update of it. cos This is a very very RECENT issue.

    Been experiencing this only since the update. As you can see I am a relatively newly registered user. THIS means, I have a issue only now. Been using opera for more than 2 years now, never received such issues at all in the past.

    When I am in Facebook and I notice it happens when I am in the middle of typing a message or typing a new status update. BOOM ! the damn error comes and I have to reload and start typing it all over again.

    Its really Irritating to me Especially when I am trying to maintain Facebook Groups and need to constantly update group followers with updates. Please help guys... Seriously... I need ur help.

  • Download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder named "Opera Test" on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation", uncheck "Import data from default browser" and install. Test in that Opera for a while, but do not install any extensions, do not turn on the adblocker and do not use Opera Sync.

    If it works fine there, it may be a new issue with one of your extensions and or the adblocker.

    Do the same thing with Opera Develop and Opera Beta to "Opera Developer Test" and "Opera Beta Test" folders and see how they work with and without your extensions and adblocker. Maybe it's an issue that's already been fixed and the fix just hasn't reached stable Opera yet.

  • @burnout426 Allrighty then... shall try this method and see if it works. Will update in a couple of days to see if I hit this same problem. Watch out for my update then. TQ

  • Ok. I followed Burnout's advice, made a new installation. Created that Opera Test folder on desktop, made the standalone installation as per advice.

    Have used this Opera Test version, I made a tiny new icon to differentiate the two, so I changed the icon this new Opera Test one. After 1 day of usage, Today on Tuesday September 10 2019 at 8.15am while on Facebook, received the same error.

    So I think its kinda confirmed now. Its not a Memory issue nor an addon problem. Opera seems to be the one with the bug.

  • and here's the screen shot of how the task manager looked like. Hit Shift + Escape as per instructions. 15d168d9-754b-4552-8236-bcd99d5e9224-image.png

  • Can you try with Opera Beta and Opera Developer now too just to see if it's already fixed?

  • @burnout426 Ok will try it out as per request. Cross fingers we dont hit this same problem....

  • @rismarved Thanks for trying. I did look at the changelogs for 64 and 65 and searched for "out of memory", but didn't find anything.

  • yep! same problem on web.whatsapp.com page 😥 😥 😥
