Opera crashes ~1 minute after being opened

  • I have the exact same problem ! I'm using GX and 67 in the meantime but I tried lots of solutions and none are working I have no idea where the problem is coming from.

  • @vaern I've been having the same problem for a couple weeks now, just been using chrome temporarily 'till it's fixed or I find a way to fix it.

  • I've been having the same issue since this morning, I had a few problems with my computer and had to restart it. Since then, Opera won't hold open for more than a minute.

  • Topic. Today, with no changes to a working setup, Opera started randomly quitting about a minute after it was opened. It doesn't appear to be a crash, as all the tabs I had open are reloaded with no issues. It's not limited to a tab either, as the multiple windows I routinely use all close simultaneously with no comments whatsoever.

    I've tried recovering, clearing all user data, even uninstalling/reinstalling and the issue persists. I have to use firefox just to make this help request (and I hope it's in the right place, as the website conspicuously lacks any direct support). I'd like to keep using Opera, but I need it to work first.

  • Same, tired clean install with appdata removed but nothing helped... using GX while waiting for a fix-.-

  • i have the same problem. 3 days after windows update and opera update

  • Same issue here 😕

  • The latest Opera of as Today June 24, 20 keeps shutting down after 30 or so minuets. Uninstalling, Reinstalling, Cleaning up Folder no Help. It works only on start but then 30 seconds or so it shuts down with out any errors......

  • It crashes on any action in the O menu, also any attempt to set the new weather widget to "Your city" and who knows what else since I can't get past a crash. Uninstall, reinstall same deal. I'd put this in a bug report but it crashes on any input to the bug report. Anyone has access I have at least 15 crash reports in there. So maybe a mod can pass this along. Meanwhile I can make do with O 68

  • I gave up and downloaded Opera Developer. No more crashes. I simply synched the new Opera with my account and all was working as before. A pain but worth it. I am hoping the next update of standard opera fixes things.

  • Back again. The issue randomly stopped happening, then came right back after a windows update. I don't know if it's connected but if Opera is closing itself because of a windows security update I've got some Serious questions about what the hell it's doing to my system.

    Edit : Restarting my PC again seems to have fixed the problem for now. But I shouldn't have to explain why "Restart and hope it works" isn't a solution.

  • I had the same problem today with version 69.0.3686.77. As I understand the problem is in the account online. To make it work again you have to disconnect your pc from internet, so that opera can stay open for more than a few seconds, go to settings and disconnect from your account. After that you can reconnect, everything will work (except for sync...). If I try to log in again it will freeze again, but after I created a new account the sync seems to work fine with that one.
    I also had the same problem back in march when the opera version with workspaces came out (it should have been the 67), and in a couple of minor versions the problem was solved. My hope is that it won't happen cyclically every couple of months!

    It seems a little more complicated than that. If you read back a bit, in one of my comments I mention only making an Opera-acc just to post this thread. So it started happening before I had one. Also I reverted back to ver.67.0.3575.97 and that has been running mostly without issues. (Though google keeps signing me out, so I periodically need to log back in.) I'm too afraid to try updating again, to be honest, it's just a lot of hassle to get it back into a functional state.

  • Just happened to me with latest build. I read somewhere that syncing with the online account can cause it to hang until it's done, which can take awhile, so I waited. Sure enough, after 20-30 minutes it started working again.

  • @mquigggeorgia
    I didn't know that, I tried and it works! Windows told me opera didn't respond and asked me a few times if I wanted to close it, but after a couple of minutes everything is working fine! Thank you for the tip!

  • I had this happening to me too
    It started happening yesterday(for me) but I think I fixed it(I think) by updating to opera 69.0.3686.77
    I was on 68 something and I think that version is just broken so if you open the opera menu and go to update & recovery and check for an update(my opera was open long enough to download and install it surprisingly) and it should update and hopefully fix your issue 🙂

  • 69.0.3686.77 version crashes every time after one minute of work, eats 30% CPU and crashes. is it ok?? what should I do? besides switching to chrome...

  • @belkaspeleo I don't really know but it seems that opera is just doing this to random people on random versions? op switched back to 67.0.3575.97 to fix the crashing thing and that seems to have ended up working for them(mostly)

    You might want to try vivaldi(its like opera but its still being made by the original creators of opera) but i don't really know why this happening to random people

  • @belkaspeleo
    That happened to me too with that same version. I solved just waiting a couple of minutes (but depending on your pc it could take even half an hour), even if windows says that the program does not respond keep it open. If it doesn't work you have to opt out from syncing, but you'll need to disconnect from internet first to keep opera open. After that you can create a new account and sync all your old stuff from local to that new account, that is like making a clone that works again.

  • @karellen thanks a lot. I have a brand new HP, I doubt that it will take a longtime to recover... so, there are truobles with synchronization?..
