Opera 26 - very slow scroll on some sites

  • Hi,
    The Opera 26.0.1656.60 (extensions disabled) is very slow for example on this site:
    The same with Chrome 39.0.2171.95 m but WebKit based too the Comodo Dragon and Chromium Secure are 3 times faster.
    The Firefox 34.0.5 and IE 11 are lighting fast here.

    My config:
    Win7 SP1 x64, i7-950, 24 GBRAM, AMD HD6970

    GpuProcessHostUIShim: The GPU process exited normally. Everything is okay.

    Best Regards, m-tron d3bil0x

  • Website works fine here in Opera Developer. Turn off hardware acceleration and see if that helps.

  • Sorry for the unexpected post layout.

    This slowdown occurs when the page is zoomed.

  • May be for a test a fresh Opera test profile may giv you more

    1. Open DOS box
    2. Start Opera by enetering the following command:
      "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Opera\launcher.exe" --user-data-dir="%TEMP%\OPTEMP\
    3. Visit
    4. Set your zoom to desired value
    5. Scroll

    If it is the same problem as before, you have a problem with your graphics card driver on Windows and not with your Opera profile.
