Hello and thanks for using justanswer.com

Lets try deleting the preference file.

Click on the picture of a face all the way on the left-hand side of your dock. Click on Go at the very top and Choose Home

This will bring up your home folder. Go into a folder called Library and then another folder called Preferences. Delete the file called com.operasoftware.Opera.plist

Start Opera

Hello Tom,

thank for your answer.
I did exactly as you wrote.
I found the file. I deleted it and even restart the laptop.
But I still have the problem.
When I double click the icon in the dock, the small triangle indicating that the app is going to launch appear just for a second, then disappear.
The message visible in "console" is the same as before.

I need you to delete something else.

Click on the picture of a face all the way on the left-hand side of your dock. Click on Go at the very top and Choose Home

This will bring up your home folder. Go into a folder called Library and then another folder called Caches. Delete the folder called Opera

Start Opera

Hi Tom,

I did as you instructed. Unfortunately Opera still doesn't launch.
I deleted the folder and I restarted the computer

I would download the software again here and reinstall.

http://www.opera.com/

If the reinstall does not work, The only other thing would be to go into the Library folder again and then Application Support and delete the Opera folder here.

If the above does not work let me know and I'll opt out for another expert to assist

Thank you Tom, but at this point I had to figure another solution. I totally uninstalled Opera and I am using Thunderbird instead

Thank you
