  • @l33t4opera I updated to the latest version 80, and every time I open the bookmark bar, the browser will crash and restart. I hope the next version will be fixed.

  • Hi @virtualworld, I didn't experience it here on Linux.
    Maybe you can check if it happens also when you launch the Opera with a fresh profile, for example on Windows: "\path\to\launcher.exe" --user-data-dir="\path\to\new-profile-folder" or on Linux: /path/to/opera-developer --user-data-dir=/path/to/fresh-profile-folder

    If it doesn't occur there, you can try to run the Opera using your old profile, but add the following switches (one at the time) "--no-experiments" or "--disable-extensions".

    If it doesn't crash with the 1st switch, go to opera:flags and press "Reset all" button in the top right corner, close the browser and remove the switch. Run the Opera again and see if it helps.

    In case it doesn't crash with the 2nd switch, disable all extensions and close the browser, remove the switch launch the Opera again and start enabling extensions one by one to find out which one is the culprit.

    If none of the above helps, launch the browser with "--disable-gpu" switch. If it helps, disable the hardware acceleration under opera:settings/system close the Opera and remove the switch. Run the browser again to see if the issue is gone.

    Also, perhaps you can provide some more information: your OS, hardware details, etc. , it could help the developers to figure out what's causing the issue in your case.

  • @l33t4opera
    Hi! The following flags do not work.

    Due to the fact that they don't have any effect could you also check if all the new flags, especially those that an ordinary use cannot find out on his own like the ones below, actually work?

  • @op2 Those are Chromium flags and some Chromium flags may not work in Opera, specially the ones that change the UI.

  • @leocg Thank you for clarifying.
