The Opera GX is slow topic

  • @debianlinux said in The Opera GX is slow topic:

    @medulla Usually the problem is the limiters, try to disable all limiters or reduce them

    @DebianLinux
    What you mean with "limiters"?
    The Problem still exits.
    I am on Ihre Version:LVL 2 (core: 72.0.3815.487)

  • @medulla he means like opera GX has a GX control that controls how much memory and CPU space it takes.

  • @firefox289
    Thank you for explanation.
    Right from the start, since I've been using opera gx, the limiters have been deactivated.

  • @medulla same i switched back to chrome im sad:(

  • When i want to use opera GX it very, very, very slow working.
    I cant wach films on you tube and everything are very slow working.
    Can someone help?

  • same problem here. Hopefully they fix it soon.

  • try disable battery saver in the settings maybe that would work

  • What about the GX browser ??? Suddenly it started to work slow in all kinds of search and navigation. For weeks now with the problem, I uninstall it and reinstall it and it fixes but after a while it gets slow again and the browser sticks ...... Any Solution !!!

  • Hello, for me disabling battery saving mode, hardware acceleration, and most importantly for youtube, the VPN helped the browser to run perfectly.

  • Hello! I had the same problem and this fixed:

    1. Uninstall Opera GX
    2. Press Windows Key + R, then hit enter and write: "%appdata%"
    3. Delete the folder named "Opera Software"
    4. (Again) Press Windows Key + R, then hit enter and write: "%localappdata%"
    5. (Again) Delete the folder named "Opera Software"
    6. Restart your PC <--------- Very Important
    7. Download and Run as Administrator the Opera GX setup
    8. Done

    This worked for me! Please reply if this does not work.

  • @gonzo1 Never, ever run as administrator.

  • I love Opera GX but the problem is that it takes way to long to load. I tried to sign in to twitch but that wouldn't even fully load so I couldn't get through verification.

  • i've just updated my opera gx and now my internet there is next to none. When i used other apps like discordapp or chrome, all is fine but opera gx still cant load pages completely. Not even youtube nor a simple search

  • I just installed the Browser and finished setting it up, when i noticed youtube would only load in 144p. So I did a speedtest, in Opera I have a dowlnoad of 16MBps, wheras my download with the same Speedtest in Firefox is 105MBps. I already turned of the VPN and some other possibly throttling settings but nothing changed.

  • Hello! I recently installed opera gx and ui seems to be laggy , uhm at least not fully fluid.Its like 60 fps on 144 hz or something like that.When i moving cursor from tab to tab , red highlight is laggy.Help anyone?

  • @potat0e Disable all extensions that you may have installed. Also disable third party softwares, specially anti-virus and other security related software.

    btw Tried literally everthing, unchecking this and that. Same with reinstalling. Its not rig problem

  • So I'm not the only one with this problem, its only with youtube

  • As the title says, my browser started working ridiculously slow the past week, it takes like 30 seconds to open a link, to make a Google search and even to open a Youtube video, no matter what the action is, it takes like 15 times more time that it used to take. Even the Youtube video miniature that appears when you pass your mouse over the buffered line to see what's next is affected, it is white, and takes 30s-1m to load.
    If I use Chrome I don't have any problem at all, so I'm making the assumption that it's something related to OperaGx.

    -Things I did the past week that could have cause the problem:
    *Nothing out of the ordinary actually, I have crypto wallet extensions, multiple Youtube videos tabs open, I close opera with them open so I can retake on them tomorrow, I have like 4-5 videos open and in total 8 tabs every time with whatever I was watching that I decided I better keep it open so I can retake on it later, but it was never a problem, and overall, I did those things before the problem started and it worked just fine.

    -Things I did to try to fix this:
    *Clear cache, cookies, everything in the gx cleaner, and not only the pas 30 days, I chose everything.
    *I disabled my extensions (not uninstall them).
    *I closed all the tabs.
    *I did a clean boot of windows.

    My system specs are the next:
    Ryzen 5 5600x
    1650 Super
    16gb (2x8) Ram 3200hz
    SSD 500Gb (operating system, and have more than 25% space free, I have opera installed in here)
    HDD 3Tb
    Wired connection 100Mb/s

    I'll appreciate any idea of what could be causing the problem, thanks!

    Try turning off the VPN. When I turned off the VPN, it became as fast as chrome
