RE: How do I uninstall Opera 50?Opera for Mac
@bobamamda-0 It's hard to say why it crashes.
Question: What Extensions/Add-ons is installed?
Have you tried disabling all extensions and restart Opera to see if there is any difference (see note below)?
Note: Download from: https://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/49.0.2725.64/mac/ (choose Opera_49.0.2725.64_Setup.dmg)
When done, restart Opera, and it will maybe autoupdate again (let Opera do this, and restart the browser again when it's done).
If the browser don't crash, try to enable your installed extensions one at the time and see if you experience any issues.
If even this will fail, and Opera keeps on crashing, we need to know what's going on. Before you take any further action, it's a good idea to backup your settings which is located at:
~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/(use Finder, and the menu ”Go -> Go to folder…” and copy/paste the line above. Hold the
altkey on your keyboard and drag the folder at the left of the window title which says ”com.operasoftware.Opera” and drag to your Desktop or any other location)
Uninstall completely. The easiest way to do this is to use a freeware third-party application named AppCleaner, don't be fooled by similar named applications if you search on Google, most of them are adware or worse, you need to do some research first. Always download directly from the developer (not from Softtronic, MacUpdate or others), in this case:
https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/(i have no association with the developer)
When AppCleaner.app is installed in the Applications folder, launch AppCleaner. Drag the Opera.app icon to the AppCleaner window and wait a couple of seconds.
Press the button ”Remove”, and for good measure restart or logout. When logged in again, empty the Trash.
Download Opera from https://www.opera.com/computer/mac and see if it works again.
If Opera still crashing, a crash dialog will display asking you to send a report. Go to
https://pastebin.com/(no need to register) and copy/paste the log data (or take a screenshot like: https://i.stack.imgur.com/XVMYV.png) and post the pastebin link/or screenshot here.
You can also try Opera Beta or Opera Developer.
One general advice is to see if you have any malware which mostly comes from shady browser extensions, ”video downloaders”, ”Facebook Themes” ,”system cleaners” and so on. One of the most well known free anti malware scanners is: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/ and i recommend to do a scan.

”Having serious issues with the UI and UI painting i never seen before. Pixel edges (until you resize the window), new windows display parts of the underlying window content and more. This build is unusable, atleast on this system. Tried the standard things.

I know there was a related issue in Chromium: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=794819 (while this don't look like this).

*Note: It says
Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable, while other Chromium based apps says (including Opera Stable and Opera Beta):
Canvas: Hardware accelerated. Enabling:

Canvas: Hardware accelerated, but don't fix the issues.
EDIT: Chrome Canary 66.0.3334.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit) has now also:

RE: Feature Request: Disable Share button (and any other buttons I don't want)Suggestions and feature requests
@awfki Cheers! You can disable some of the functionality by disable some flags (internal settings/experiments) in Opera. Flags relating to Share (i have this disabled as well) is at (click, or copy & paste the links in the location field of the browser):
opera://flags/#mac-system-share-menu (Set to: Disable)
opera://flags/#more-share-menu-access-points (Set to: Disable)
After changing the flags, be sure to restart Opera.
RE: Pink and green tearing only on YouTubeOpera for Mac
@jaraux You use a Hackintosh, and most likely there is issues with the Graphic Card drivers. I guess you use a GPU from NVIDIA. Check if there is any updates to the NVIDIA for Mac Webdrivers. But, it could be a issue with Chromium.
RE: What is VTDecoderXPCService?Opera for Mac
@kyu3 It's a sanboxed and ”built-in” audio and video API in macOS/OS X. It will run when applications using this API needs to parse for example; video or audio (specially when no hardware acceleration is available for the media) The SpeedDial will is capable of showing animated wallpapers, so it may be that (even if you don't have animated wallpapers set).
However, can you check: opera://gpu/ and post the results you get for Graphics Feature Status.
RE: No History at All!Opera for Mac
After further research, i noticed that the issue most likely was because of some enabled flags (
I reverted some of the flags i changed in earlier builds, and restarted Opera. Now everything, including history, works again.
So, check if you have enabled any flags, and either revert all of them back to default, or do it by trial and error.
