[Solved]Selecting text locks opera browser

  • Hello,

    I am using 65.0.3467.48 version of Opera. My OS is Windows 10 pro 64Bit. There are no updates that I can apply. All is up to date.

    When I select text using mouse, there is a popup displayed for search,copy,etc. From time to time I do a selection that popup appears and CPU usage spikes up. Opera goes to unresponsive on all open tabs. I can only end process using task manager.

    I am not able to figure how and where that happens (re-production) but it seems to happen mostly on online sales web sites. Selection is not necessarily to be an URL. It can be a simple text.

    That problem exists for a while now.

    There are several plug-ins like Internet Download Manager, Ad Blocker, RoboForm, DarkReader.

    I wonder if there are others facing the issue.
    I wonder what can I do get a log for filing a bug report or something.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks & regards,

  • @ertank Already tested with extensions disabled as instructed?

  • After disabling one plugin that I suspected. I did not have any lock at all.
    I already reported that to developer. Will let them know again.


  • @ertank Which extension please?

  • That was IDM (Internet Download Manager) for me.
