Opera not behaving the same in VirtBox in Windows- dual boot

  • Using Virt Box - Linux Ubuntu 18.04.2 on Windows and with Windows 7 and Windows 8.0 dual boot. The virtual machine virtual HD file is the same file used on both sides.
    Win 7 VirtBox - vrs 6.0.10 132072 // Win 8.0 VirtBox - vrs 6.1.0 135406
    Right now Ubuntu on top of Windows works well on both sides... Even Opera works pretty well.... except for two cases....

    • When I go to my bank site in Opera in Win 8 - www.tdbank.com... Opera / Ubuntu hangs. It works perfectly in Win 7 - the original system. All other web sites work in Win 7 / Win 8 AFAIK.
    • When I click on the upper left circle to get to Opera Settings in Win 8, Opera / Ubuntu hangs

    I would think that I should be able to get to Opera Settings on either system.... Any help you can provide would be great.....

  • @dperecky It’s normal.
    Virtualbox has not good GPU support.

  • @adasiko - Thank You for your reply. It's just that it's the same PC, the same .vhd file, but diff virt boxes- different versions and different windows.

    Would you recommend a different virtualization method - Linux on Windows?

    Take Care....
