Extreme Memory Leak when Resizing

  • I got 16 GB of RAM and I never ran out of it until few days ago when I woke my computer from sleep. According to the taskmanager it was due to latest Opera 25 eating more than 10GB. I thought it was due to running AdBlock which apparently had a Memory Leak some time ago, so I removed it. However, Opera is still munching away on my memory. Usually I have about 20 tabs open and Opera starts up using about 1GB, which surely is acceptable on my system. However, every time I resize the window (which happens rather often), Opera uses a little bit more memory and it rarely drops. When I check the taskmanager and just keep resizing I can watch the memory usage grow VERY quickly. Well, the workaround is simple - restart Opera, but I guess for people with less memory it's not quite as fun.

  • Same here. I never thought it was Opera's problem. I realized that a few days ago... I only have 2Gb of RAM, and that's fine most time, Opera normally consumes 300-400 Mb of memory, but when I resize the window it uses up to 90% of my RAM!

  • Can not confirm this on Windows 7 x64 with Opera 25.
