Firstly and off topic (because I don't know where else to ask for help)
Will a mod please fix or otherwise email instructions to my associated email address on what could be causing my "login" issue, and subsequent nonsensical ban?
The email said:
"This is the reason why you have been banned:
Use of caps"
Ludicrous. I have less than 10 total posts on this forum.
Congruent to the above, I have no issue logging in to the "auth" portal, in which when I do login, under Sessions", I always see a "twin" login from another address (usually a German ip address). I clear all the logins except the current one.
I have no clue why this is happening and it seems to coincide w/my upgrade to the 78 tree.
As to the original issue:
It is apparently the paging file that explodes soon after I open a private window. And I cannot reclaim that memory (disk space) unless I completely shut down and restart Opera.
This started happening immediately after I updated to 78. My behavior hasn't changed: open tabs, private window tabs opened, etc.
The only thing I haven't done since updating is reboot the computer. I will try that but it seems that I will have to find some way to downgrade to get this browser back to a useable state.
I'm literally down from 1.5gb to 145mb after only opening temporarily a private window with one or two tabs (doing that several times)
I don't want to reinstall, lose my session with 140 tabs, my history, cookies and profile.
That seems like killing a mosquito with a bazooka to me.
A simple update should not wreak this much havoc with memory/paging file.
But please, someone who can, please look into the forum issue and communicate to me through email.
I see western56 was banned by for asking why I'd been banned.
Something is seriously broken.
