Before I start, I would like to state that I have tried all the solutions to fix this issue. However, none of them were effective. And also, I've recently made the same report regarding this issue, but apparently, the issue is with the search bar. No, the search bar isn't the issue that I am lagging tremendously, I've tried to change my search engine several times which wasn't effective.
My Opera GX has been lagging since the 23rd of January. The symptoms are, whenever I open Opera GX it begins to lag tremendously, especially when I am on the starting page. But, if I manage to quickly switch to another tab (Like settings or any pages that isn't the starting page), I wouldn't lag until at some point it slowly starts to freeze as I hover over my bookmarks to see if my browser is lagging or not. Also, if I try to search for something, it begins to lag and at some point, it'd completely freeze. For instance, I typed in random gibberish words on the search bar, the browser freezes. I can try to use Opera GX only if I don't stay on the starting page for too long, but it will still eventually freeze nevertheless. I tried to downgrade my Opera Browser to the previous version because a helper in the Opera GX discord community suggested me to try that solution, so I did. Furthermore, I was supposed to remove the "auto-update" files, but I accidentally double-clicked the auto-update file. But, it somehow fixed the issue, and I've been using it well until I rebooted my PC for several reasons. Now it went on full-white screen, and it began to lag tremendously again.
Ok anyway, not to mention, but I've also experienced an issue of Opera GX not loading, and instead, it only shows a completely blank screen. But this isn't important as I know how to fix it, but I think this could be a factor.
I have been using Opera GX for nearly a year now, and I don't wish to switch to another browser as it is highly customizable, and I love the features. I've been stressed for almost a week because of this issue. Can you please help me?
List of solutions I tried: Disabling and removing all my extensions and Opera built-in Ad blocker and Ad-tracker, Uninstalling and reinstalling Opera GX with and without my user data, reverting my browser back to the previous version, completely removing Opera GX data in my pc, etc.
