Opera suspend(unload) tabs with youtube

  • Hello! Guys, i feel awful. I stopped to use google chrome, because it's always unload youtube tabs. I don't keep 100,200,300 tabs. I use only 5-10 open tabs. For example i watch 10 video lessons, and each tab has it's own pause on different moment of video.

    I never turn computer off. And when i came back after some hours, my youtube tabs are unloaded from RAM. When i open some tab, it opens again, and i lost my pause moment. It is annoying so much!

    How i can disable this functional ? I don't want Opera to unload my tabs.
    I have 8 GB of ram, and at least half of is free.

    I get used to Opera, but if i don't find resolution, i will continiue search of browser which won't do this. Thanks !

  • @bearscience As far as I know, you can't.

    By the way, after how long it usually happens? I don't remember have seem it happening here.

  • @leocg Usually 2-3 hours. But it is strange ... i left PC and during this night - it doesn't unload tabs. Hmm. What is going on. Is it look like lack of RAM ?

  • You can goto the URL opera://discards and turn off auto-discarding for certain URLs. That might help.

    See for some suggestions of extensions that might help prevent this.
