BLOOMBERG.COM makes Opera 12.16 crash

  • Windows 7 64-bit
    Opera 12.16 64-bit

    I got an Opera window open with the following tabs:
    http://www.ft.com/home/uk
    http://money.cnn.com/?iid=dmstedition
    http://www.reuters.com/
    http://www.bloomberg.com/
    http://www.dw.de/
    http://www.spiegel.de/

    After having the window open for several minutes, Reloading All Tabs, or reload only the bloomberg.com tab, causes Opera to crash.

    It turns out that it is the bloomberg.com tab that causes the crash in my case. I figured it out by disabling JavaScript for the bloomberg site:
    Menu > Settings > Quick Preferences > Edit Site Preferences ... Go to the tab Scripting, then tick the box [Open console on error], just to see what errors are flying by upon reloading bloomberg.com, and Untick the box [Enable JavaScript].

    Once JavaScript is disabled in the site preferences for bloomberg.com, the Window with its 6 tab does not crash anymore. Nonetheless, I noticed in the Error Console that there are a significant number of JavaScript error flying by from all tabs (sites) but these do not crash Opera, except some JavaScript errors from bloomberg.com.

    I was wondering if anyone could reproduce the Opera window with the 6 tabs (sites) and see if the window also crashes upon reloading all tabs, or upon reloading only the bloomberg.com tab?

    Internet Explorer 11 does not cause any problems. So, at first sight, it looks like Opera is not "robust" enough against the javascript errors coming from bloomberg.com.

    thanks,

  • I just found out that bloomberg.com makes O12.16 32-bit on a Windows XP 32-bit machine also crash. The solution is the same as on the 64-bit version, that is, disabling Javascript in the Site Preference for bloomberg.com.

    I have the exact same set up as you but when I clicked on your provided link to bloomberg.com it performed normally.

  • fungi-lives,
    Very often the setup of mine does not crash either, especially right after boot or opening Opera, but when I leave the window with 6 tabs open for some time, say 5 or more minutes or so, and I reload all tabs or just reload the single bloomberg tab, then Opera crashes. I have exactly the same problem on my older computer too (WinXP, Opera 12.16, all 32-bit).
    On all computers, I got the latest versions of Flashplayer, Java, and other plugins.

  • Try 12.14
    ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/win/1214/

    12.16 has broken web-site compatibility
