Annoying bug that happens when changing tab

  • So, the way this bug works is whenever I change to a different tab and go back to the previous one, if there is a plugin of some sort running, then it freezes. I then either have to reload or zoom in/out to make it work again. Quite annoying, but I was hoping you could help me resolve this. I tried uninstalling (without deleting user-data) and re-installing. I have no idea what could be causing it. If it's a plugin, an extension, or a setting of sorts. My browser used to work fine until about 2 weeks ago, and it works fine on my laptop...

    If you need further information, let me know and I'll get back to you πŸ™‚
    Thank you for reading, I hope this can be resolved soon.

  • I have the same problem on Kabam.com.I hope SOMEBODY fix's this soon.

  • Can't reproduce it here.

    I have no idea what could be causing it. If it's a plugin, an extension, or a setting of sorts.

    Disable all extensions and plugins and then start enabling one by one to try to find which can be causing the issue.

    1. Open http://haxball.com
    2. Change tab in Opera
    3. Go back to your Haxball tab
    4. Haxball interface is frozen
    5. Press F11 to unfreeze it
  • Nope, not happening here (27 @ Win 8.1)

  • Open http://haxball.com
    Change tab in Opera
    Go back to your Haxball tab
    Haxball interface is frozen
    Press F11 to unfreeze it

    Are you using npapi or ppapi flash? You can check in opera:plugins (click in show details if needed).

  • Using win7 if that makes a difference. My opera version is the latest (Version: 26.0.1656.24 - Opera is up to date).
    not using npapi or ppapi at all. No idea what those are. I use Adobe Flash.

  • So, I tried disabling all plugins and extensions, and no results. Still getting the freeze. The only thing left is a setting of sorts, or there is an incompatibility somewhere.

  • Okay so... after some tinkering and troubleshooting, I've come to the conclusion that Adobe Flash Player WAS the culprit. I reinstalled it, and now everything works fine. I hope it works for anyone else with the same problem out there as well! πŸ™‚

  • Same here, but with YouTube player, its frozen after changing tabs

  • Version: 26.0.1656.20

    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

    Flash: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_15_0_0_239.dll (Shockwave Flash 15.0 r0 NPAPI)

    Plugins on demand: enabled

  • I realized that the problem is not in the flash player! Even without flash, Opera dims Π°nd window moves. In new version too. The problem is in Opera... 😞
