Out of Memory message

  • 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.

    Here's the snapshot. !1951e3b0-a518-41a7-808f-a47dcba5ae35-image.png

  • 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 😥 😥 😥

  • Hi,

    Are you able to find any solution for this?

    Based on your description, it is what exactly happen to me as well.
    The OOM error occur only on Facebook tab, especially if i open/active on other tab.

    This happen after i upgrade my OS and clean format my Desktop. OOM never happen to me before OS formating, even if i open 42 tabs.

    Current spec:
    OS: Windows 10 Pro (Build 18362)
    RAM: 16GB
    Addson: None. (Only Opera builtin like Ads block)

  • sumtimes out of memory is caused by widows virtue memory set to none.. in system - advance settings.. check to make sure windows is set for automatic manages for all drives or C drv's page file

  • Hey, i think i found the culprit.

    I check my opera settings, the battery saver is enabled.

    I disabled it and seems its working fine for the whole day now. No more OOM error on Facebook tab.

  • @myth89 Tried this method also. NOPE... the crash still seems to occur.

    Tommorow will mark the 2nd Month Anniversary of this Bug. 2 MONTHS and is still there. Cmon OPERA guys, help us out willya ?

  • Re: Out of Memory message

    Opera for heavens sake people. I posted this issue since September 2019. Been given a few methods, and I tried them all. [Caps are not allowed] result. The crashes still occur.

    Last update was back in November 2019. [Caps are not allowed] now. Still no solutions ?

    [Caps are not allowed] cmon buck up guys.... its such an annoying bug here...whats the problem in figuring out this simple thing ?

  • This post is deleted!
  • I get the same problem while using/listening to LBC radio, no other site is affected in this way, windows 7 ultimate, 4 gig memory,

  • Has no one solved this problem yet. I have an i5 Win 10 computer with 8gb ram. I get this "out of memory" message all the time when using Facebook - and only with Facebook. It doesn't matter if I have 1 tab open or 5. What's going on??
