Opera GX crashing even when tab suspender is turned on

  • On my windows 10, in opera gx version 66.0.3515.111 I have opened using five browser windows with a total of 30 tabs in them, of which 25 tabs have been put idle by the Tab Suspender extension. Despite this, about every two hours I will encounter the issue of all browser windows crashing and then reopening. This issue seems to happen with all browsers I have used on this computer, though I have only opened a few non CPU impacting programs in each case. Apart from this, my computer generally runs smoothly. I am only opening a few non CPU impacting programs each time. I have already went through resetting browser settings. Please advise on subsequent steps.

    When resetting your settings, you usually lose your extensions. But, did you test before add Tab Suspender back in?

    Did/do they all have Tab Suspender installed?

    Does the whole browser crash where Opera gives you an option to submit for info with a crash log? If so, what's the crash id?

    1. Yes, the frequent crashes were a key reason why I wanted to try using Tab Suspender to eliminate them in the first place.
    2. The other browsers I used did not have Tab Suspender, but I used other tab-suspending extensions on them and there was only little effect on reducing the crash frequency, thus I have switched to using opera gx as my default browser.
      3.l have already turned on the option for automatically submitting crash reports, and opera does not give me the option to submit for info with a crash log.
  • @ivanskcheung2 Did you already report it to Tab Suspender authors? Did you get any reply?
