Opera Next is crashing like crazy today; won't even start up

  • This morning, my Opera Next installation started crashing like crazy.

    I was opening background tabs, then suddenly it disappeared. Then it started up again with my tabs, then it disappeared. Then it started up again, withOUT my tabs, then it disappeared. Then it stayed dead.

    Now, whenever I try to reopen Opera Next, it opens/crashes/opens/crashes. It's unusable.

    Anyone else seeing this? I don't know what version it is because it won't stay open long enough for me to find out. It does auto-updates, though, so I assume it's recent.

    (Luckily regular Opera is still working, but I'm concerned about the next update.)

  • I tried installing "Opera Beta" just now, and that's crashing too, in the same way.

    (Is Beta even different from Next? I don't even know.)

  • Opera Next was rebranded Opera beta. (Because marketing.)

    That is very unfrortunete. Have you got it up and running again?
    If not you can reset the user profile to see if Opera will start-up then. To do that, please open a Finder window. In that window, press Command–Shift–G and type ~/Library/Application Support followed by Enter. Either delete or move the com.operasoftware.OperaNext folder somewhere else. (Even Opera beta’s folder is called OperaNext. Because engineering.) Try starting Opera beta again.
