Opera won't run/Installer wont finish

  • I've had this issue before, but it seems to keep returning. Every time I try to run Opera Gx, It will only open as a background process, and with each click of the launcher it open 2 more "Opera GX Internet Browser" processes. I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling the application and deleting my user data, yet the issue remains. Sometimes it will work, and its as if nothing is wrong, but other times it will open but none of the tabs will load no matter how long I wait.

    And even more recently, the "OperaGxSetup", which I would regularly launch to make sure the problem wasn't an outdated version, wont fully extract, it stops at 99%, but I can still open opera afterwards.

    Does anyone know what could possibly be causing this? The device I'm using is very powerful and just bought, and I haven't downloaded anything that would interfere with opera.

  • @sondery I am also having very similar issues

  • @sondery Have you found anything thats made it work yet?

  • @acorns Sadly no, but I've found that normal Opera works fine. I've just resorted to using that, as I like the workspace feature, but rip all the customizations.

  • @sondery I figured out a way to that it works but you will be left with a lot of files on the desktop
