Not responding after 67 update

  • After 67 update, browser keeps locking up. Seeps to do after a shord period of time, somewhat random. I did a clean install of 67, and it still causing a "not responding" on the status bar, and it resures a "close program". I re-installed 66, and it works fine. HELP, as I am almost to the point of having to bail on Opera, as it is useless as it is.

  • Do you use Opera Sync?

  • I have the same problem and it hangs when i turn on sync.

  • @burnout426

    Yes I do.

  • According to some users, sync causes crashes right now in Opera 67. You have to disable sync until it's fixed or revert to the last Opera 66 build. Hopefully there will be a fix soon.

  • @burnout426 Hi!

    I'm having the same issue. How do I disable sync?

    Opera doesn't work long enough to go to settings. Can this be done outside of Opera?

    Thank you!

  • @jarodsafehouse71 If you can do it before Opera crashes, click the sync icon that's on the right side of the address bar and choose to sign out. Or, try going to the URL opera://settings/people to sign out if you have to.

    Thank you for the fast response, but unfortunately, I can't do it quickly enough. I have reverted back to v66 and it's working fine but of course, it automatically downloads the current version. How do I disable auto-update until this is fixed?

    I'm using Windows 10 64-bit with 64-bit Opera 66

    In Opera's installation folder, under the latest version folder (66... for you), rename opera_autoupdater.exe to opera_autoupdater.off. If you're going back to 66 by using the installer, you need to close Opera as fast as you can when it starts. Then, check the Windows Task Manager to the opera_autoupdater process. If it's there, kill it first so you can rename the opera_autoupdater file.

    I am exactly like you, I installed v66 but when I loaded my last session with 67 for not losing all the tabs it started not responding again. It frezzes so fast I can't disable the sync.

  • I will share that disabling Sync seems to fix the problem. At least It works. I suppose there is a problem with Sync. I guess if I have to Sync for some reason, I can always install 66 over 67 (I downloaded the full file, and it worked!) and turn off the updates. Hopefully, Opera is working at a fix?

  • @burnout426

    I appreciate your help! Thank you so much!

    I don't know what I did, but the latest version is working now ... I was already signed out of sync when 67 was installed last night.

    PC mysteries ...

    Thanks again!

  • You can try this way if you want.

    While Opera is closed of course, use JSONedit to load "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Preferences". Right-click on "Sync" and choose "delete selected node". Right-click on "Sync button" and choose "Delete selected node". Save your changes.

    That will log you out of Opera sync. And, if you ever log in again, Opera should (I tested this and checked synced bookmarks afterwards) continue syncing without screwing anything up and wiping out your data. But, no guarantees.
