serious memleak in latest ver i think (66>67)? 4gb thinkpad

  • hi guys, been meaning to report/ask about this for a few days, since updating Opera last time me old lappytop is almost unusable if i don't regularly close and reopen Opera, if i forget things grind to a halt. sometimes i can kill from console sometimes power button needed!

    Thinkpad T400 4gb (i know it's old, but was fine till last update or 2)
    4.17.19-041719-generic #201808240919 SMP Fri Aug 24 13:22:37 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Xubuntu 18.04 stable with all updates.
    Opera 67.0.3575.137

    It was fine until this version, thinking of rolling back (if i can? to 66 or 65).

    Any tips? should i file a bug report? more info needed? thanks

    Check also Opera built-in task manager to see what is using that much memory.

  • thanks, i just realised Opera 68 is out already so let's see if its fixed already.. if not i'll be back! thank you. something v odd happened on update 66 to 67 though. wondered if known issue?
