[Bug] Browser crashing in private mode with undocked dev tools

  • Hi, found a bug in Opera GX that makes the browser close and re-launch. The steps to reproduce it is simple:

    • Open a private window
    • Go to a web page that you can download something
    • Open dev tools, not in docked mode but in separated window mode
    • Start downloading something, and before it finishes, you must click on the close button of the private window.

    The normal behavior should be displayed a warning about the non-finished download, and if the user click "yes", then the window closes, but what is happening is that it closes before you even interact with the dialog.
    I've tested it with docked dev tools, and it didn't happen.
    BTW, this bug is also present in the standard Opera.

    Tech info:
    OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 - Version 1903 - Build 18362.295
    Opera GX version: LVL1 (core: 63.0.3368.55362)
    Opera version: 63.0.3368.94

  • Hi @pspstreet51 !
    Thanks for posting that. Rechecked and I've reported a bug for this.
    Cheers 🙂
