OperaGX freezes for a while when i open a new tab (probably due to the animated background)

  • When i open a new tab, it freezes for a while and if i type in it during the freeze, OperaGX crashes, i think it's because of the animated background which is not preloaded!

  • @nitramo Have you tried without the animated background?

    Also, is your system strong enough to run the animated background while having other tabs open? (depending on how many you have)

  • @quik Yes my system can handle it because when the animated background is loaded i can re-open a new tab and it doesn't freeze, but if i stay on the same tab for a while, when i open a new tab i have the problem again! I think they should preload the animated background at the start of OperaGX instead of at the opening of the tab! And i'll try next days without the animated background and comeback here to say if the problem persists!
