I tried installing Opera from the Software store app. After I rebooted I noticed it would launch very slow, but only on the first launch. This was greatly disappointing, as speed and efficiency is one of the reasons I want to use Linux.
After noticing that others had similar issues on different Linux distributions I decided to try and install it from the terminal.
In order to resolve this I removed Opera through the Software store then reinstalled through the terminal.
Here are the instructions I used:
opera now launches quickly after a reboot on the first launch. Does it have something to do with keyrings? I don't know -- I'm not even sure what a keyring is.... I am a novice linux user but just hope this message helps either the developers fix this issue or help other users that might experience the same problem.
