Whatsapp sidebar not loading.

  • Hello, after yesterday my whatsapp on the sidebar (the normal whatsapp for desktop site works normally) stopped working/loading. After the initial loading nothing shows up on the screen (so I assume its the layout that is not loading at all), but for some reason you can still use it (even thought the layout doesn't load, you can still click on the contacts and even write messages, but again, you can't see a thing), I thought at first that this was a dark mode problem, so I disabled the dark mode on the web version, but nothing, I checked if the #enable-force-dark flag was enabled but it was disabled.

    here's the picture of what is happening:


    I'm using opera gx version 68.0.3618.206 on Windows 10.
    Thanks in advance.

  • I have the same problem and also checked the force dark page, and some of my extensions, but it keeps black. I have realized it has Whatsapp behind it and you can click on your contacts and send messages, although you won't be able to see them.

  • @yoseph1 Same's happening with me, the whats
    app is loading but it's pitch black.

  • I have the exact same problem with my Opera 70.0.3728.154 do you find a way to fix it? there is also some shadowing problem with messenger and telegram sidebar

  • its fixed today, thanks

  • Been using this for a month and it worked fine up until today, refer the SS.
    Internet is fine and all other things are loading properly including the App on my Android which is on the same Wifi btw. Am I missing here something? Please guide.
