Stops working after clearing browsing data

  • When clearing browsing data (just 'Empty the cache' checked) for some reason Opera stops working.

    Not crashing nor freezing, but everything started after clearing just keeps running indefinitely until I restart the program.

    I have this problem since the start of Opera 15, and while in the beginning this was the rare case, how time passes it starts to occur more often and often, until it became a sure thing.

    Any hint what can I do to stop this?

    Version information

    Version: 26.0.1656.32 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 7 32-bit

  • Interesting. I don't have a real fix for you but maybe use a cleaning application like Glary or CCleaner to clear out your cache instead?

  • Thanks for responding, I was aware of that, but like you said that's not real fix.
    I actually don't understand why there's not an option 'empty on exit', like the one in old Opera.
