[Solved]Opera keeps eating up my memory...

  • So I do remote support from home and use for all my remote sessions. Seems since this last update it's been causing this one tab to eat up all my memory on my machine. If I leave it inactive the tabs memory footprint will increase it's currently at 10gbs.....Please assist. Screen Shot 2019-11-22 at 1.32.55 PM.png

  • If you need syslog files I can provide them.

  • So I did some testing using the built-in developer tools on the website and it seems that the issue lays in the JS loading times. I had an extension enabled (Ublock Origins Extras) that was causing the load times to increase exponentially, I disabled the extension and recreated my work environment and seems that the tabs memory has not increased. Currently the tab is sitting at 166mb, still very odd that all of a sudden that extension that has been enabled on previous builds of Opera is now acting up, plus that extension was updated regularly. Very odd.
