Opera v52/53 blank websites - Windows 10 v1803

Post by bob@jandrpc.com » Wed Mar 28, 2018 8:34 am

Sandboxie 5.24 won't open Opera 52 webpages, in the just released RTM Windows 10 v17122. The pages never load. Opera works fine unsandboxed on the now released to OEM's Windows 10 1803 v17122.1. Chrome is fine. I prefer Opera since it has a built in VPN. Will this be addressed soon?

The AV used was not mentioned in my original post. It's the built in Window Defender.

The Windows version was a typo. It's actually 17133. Sorry.

We are investigating this issue. As a workaround, you may want to try the Opera --no-sandbox cmd line option.

Adding to Curt's response, you can also update the Opera shortcut:

Right-click on Opera's shortcut ---> Properties
In the "Target" section, at the end of the quotation marks, enter
-no-sandbox

So it should look like:
Target: "X:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" -no-sandbox

Apply and Ok your way out.
Re-try launching Opera in Sandboxie.

Barb.=

Same problem here - couldn't open most web pages in Opera after update to Windows 10 v1803.

I added the -no-sandbox flag, and the pages load again. But I'm confused - it looks like it is still running in Sandboxie? So what does that flag do?

Hello recobb

The command disables Opera's in-built sandbox.
You can do an online search for further info about their product's features.

FYI, I just installed the 5.25.2 beta version, but many web pages will will not open without using the -no-sandbox flag.

Exactly, you need the -no-sandbox workaround for all pages to open properly.

Closing this thread as, currently, a new version of Opera is out (v54):
