Problem with Opera Version 66.0.3515.27-1

  • Hello Opera team

    After updating the version of Opera on Linux (ArcoLinuxB-Deepin 20.1.4), the browser opens, crashes and closes automatically. The version of the browser that appeared in the update was the same as the codec, being: 79.0.3945.79-1, after the first use the version returned to the default of the moment, being: 66.0.3515.27-1, but the codec remained updated and I believe that This is the problem.

    See the image below:

    There is also another problem with the Instagram site, where an error message appears when you like the post or comment, which can be seen here:

    Note This only happens in the Opera browser for Linux. In windows 10 and other browsers for Linux this error does not happen.

    Can anyone help me on this issue?

    Thank you in advance for your usual attention


  • Hello

    After catching up all afternoon, I found that the problem with this new version is that the hardware acceleration system is disabled.

    After enabling hardware acceleration, the browser has stopped causing crashes and automatic closing. This has occurred in other browsers like chrome and google-chrome.


    Note: The problem of the error message on the Instagram site continues.

    Your considerations


  • I have the exact same problem on fully updated Arch, but there's more - Widevine isn't working in the newest version of Opera, hence I downgraded. So far version 65.0.3467.69 works perfectly on newest ffmpeg-codecs.
