Last update broke Opera

  • The update today makes Opera non responsive and I have to shut it down. Pleae fix it fast.

  • Sounds like the same issue I had. It was caused by open tabs:
    Immediately after the update the new version worked fine. Then, after the next restart, Opera would freeze a few seconds after every startup ("not responding"). It would stay unresponsive and I would have to force-close every time.

    Here's how I fixed that:

    1. Exit Opera (force-close)
    2. Back up the file "Current Session" from your profile folder: https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/
      Alternatively, just back up the whole profile folder (C:\Users[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable).
    3. Delete the file "Current Session" from your profile folder.
    4. Start Opera. (It should work fine now but your open tabs will be gone.)
    5. Close Opera.
    6. Copy your backup of "Current Session" back to your profile folder (replace the new file Opera created automatically).
    7. Start Opera.
    8. Success!

    If you don't need to keep/restore your open tabs just follow steps 1, 3 & 4.

  • @jimmybfmv I just stopped syncing and it worked. But not having syncing makes Opera useless.
