    Opera Version:76.0.4017.123
    https://www.deviantart.com

    The problem arose shortly after I updated to version 76. I had far far more tabs open than would be wise on any browser aside from Opera. At least 134 tabs if not more. It had been stable and able to manage although after updating to version 76 there were occasional freezes when attempting to upload pictures or files to emails or facebook. Then I started looking through my Deviantart watch list. That completely crashed opera and deleted all open tabs. I had assumed wrongly that perhaps Opera had finally met its upper limit of open tabs, and accepted my fate. The next time I had DeviantArt up and was going through my watchlist, it did it again, this time with 4 tabs open. I attempted to follow the instructions for a clean re-install. I loaded up one tab with youtube playing music, and another tab of deviantart and it did it again. After that I reinstalled my profile folders and such, which failed to transfer extensions or even bookmarks. I have attempted Deviantart with my files returned and the problem remains, however on Vivaldi Deviantart seems to work flawlessly.

    As for steps to attempt to reproduce the issue for someone else they would need a watchlist on deviant art and then attempt to scroll through it. That should work to reproduce it.

    The expected behavior would be that the browser would remain up, and the site would be usable, or if the site has some glitch in its coding that its tripping up Opera that it would simply kill the single tab not the whole browser. The actual behavior is that browsing deviantart with Opera is a game of musical chairs, the music doesn't always stop immediately but normally within 5 to 10 minutes the music stops and Opera vaporizes the chair.

  • @nightmaresoul works OK here latest opera and win same as you..

  • @ceedee Well I suppose then the question would be how many were on your watchlist as in how much was it loading ? My current level of stacks in the watch list is 770 stacks. On the plus side however Version 76.0.4017.154 has seemingly relegated the crashes down to only the tab. However it can crash the tab when its not the active tab, just moving the mouse over the tab seems to crash it randomly as well.
