    Hi Eleftheria, nice to see a new member of the Opera Desktop Team 😉
    As always, thanks for the update and fixes, for the whole Developer Team!

    • Marcin Mitek

      Fixed.

      • Onaj Tamo

        nice

  • Dark Magician

    Still small window on YouTube.

  • reesmichael1

    Thanks as always for the update 🙂

    A previous problem I had noticed with the tab preview on Mac OS X 10.9.3 seems to be fixed, although it isn’t explicitly mentioned in the changelog. Prior to this version, when I selected a new tab after the preview showed, the animation of the preview filling the window seemed choppy. (It has been fine on Windows and Linux.) In this version, it seems to be nice and smooth 🙂 However, after it fills the window, there often seems to be a momentary flicker where the gray that was around the preview flashes on the screen for an instant. Can anyone else confirm this?

    • It’s in the changelog:
      > DNA-23005 Get only 1 frame in the zoom-in/activation animation on Retina
      Your second issue will be fixed shortly, too. (DNA-24682 for your reference) 😉

      • reesmichael1

        Oh, dear…it’s at times like this that I miss :doh: 😛 So I’ll just settle for this: http://i.imgur.com/xAXKVjV.png 😉

        I saw that fix in the changelog, but I didn’t realize what it meant. I also didn’t think that the changelog entry you quoted was relevant when I saw it, because I don’t think I’m using a Retina display. Maybe I am and I just don’t know it 😉

        As always, thanks for the information!

    Hi
    when we see keyboard shortcut costumization?
    I like to use ctrl+b istead of ctrl+shift+v just like my seperb opera 12.17

    • fer22

      ^^ This
      I would like to open Dragonfly with F12 and not with Ctrl+Shift+I

      • L33t4opera

        Hi Fer22, you can rebind it as follows:
        1. Close the Opera, go to the Opera’s profile folder (you can find the path in O-Menu>About Opera>Paths>Profile), and open the “Preferences” file in your text editor, then edit the first 10 lines, as below:{
        "Keybindings": {
        "Basic": {
        "DevTools": [ "F12" ],
        "QuickPreferences": [ "Ctrl+Shift+I" ]
        },
        "Settings": {
        "AdvancedEnabled": true
        }
        },
        (the value for the “AdvancedEnable” can be “false”, if you don’t use adv keybindings). 2. Save the changes, relaunch the Opera.

        Unfortunately it’s not the Dragonfly, but still the Developer Tools 😉

        • fer22

          Thanks L33t4opera! I will try this at home tonight!

        wowowo
        Tanks man ♥

    • Pesala

      Over a year already and users still have to edit preference files to customise shortcuts. This is complex and error-prone, and is not even documented in the Help file.

  • WL-`

    Hey,
    Since the flash update, Opera doesn’t not use the pepper flash. My pepper flash is version 14 but Opera keeps using the non pepper version 15. Is already enabled to prefer pepper flash.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Disable npapi flash on opera:plugins.

    • Yes, Opera will currently use the most recent version no matter which architecture.

  • Trevor Gough

    I still get gibberish in the tab preview titles above the thumbnail previews on my Windows Vista laptop. On my Windows 7 laptop, I get appropriate English tab preview titles above the thumbnail previews.

    • Rodders

      The font you require is Segoe-ui-light.ttf
      You can download it free online if you search. I installed this font and it resolved the matter for me instantly.

    • DNA-22673 😉

  • Raylan Givens

    Ελευθερία, are you Greek? Can’t imagine a more Greek name than that… I suppose you know your name means “freedom”.

  • Predrag

    Again, on youtube video there are black rectangles. Sometimes it’s not instantly, but needs to scroll a page.

    • SuuperTommy

      Yep, both on stable and next.

    • Helge Andre Gjølme

      We are investigating it 🙂

    • taneli

      For the time being you can use an extension like Stylish to create custom CSS for pages, and do:

      #player-api { z-index: 100 !important; }

      for youtube.com to get rid of those boxes.

    • You can also start using Pepper flash plugin.
      This bug only happens with NPAPI 😉

  • Ste

    Still waiting for h264 support.

  • sgrandin

    Not sure if it’s a change, but the everything with Next zoom = 100% is much larger than with 12.17. Examples are Yahoo.com and amazon.com . Don’t need such large text, etc.

  • sgrandin

    At the bottom of Start Page in Settings is Maximum # of columns for the Speed Dial. I’m finding it has no effect above 5. Even with “smaller” icons – still at least two to three times the size needed – this makes the SD harder to use when there are a lot of thumbnails (~90 in my case).

    I commented several minutes ago about site web page text/images formatted at zoom = 100% being much larger than is necessary, as well as much larger than with 12.17. The SD thumbnail size issue makes me wonder if the whole of webkit Opera (Next) right now is supersized for some reason.

    • Vux777

      you need to disable “use big speed dial thumbnails”
      http://prntscr.com/4cnl8q

      • sgrandin

        It is disabled. Do I need to post screenshots?

        • Vux777

          if you can, SS would explain it
          I don’t get it.
          you set it to 9, and made thumbnails small size, but still you can’t see more than 5 in single row?

          • sgrandin

            See http://tinypic.com/a/37uk0/1 (two screenshots)

          • Vux777

            uhmmm, I didn’t know that thumb size can’t be set without Konami…anyway
            Go to settings page (browser on the left menu), click somewhere on the side so that mouse pointer is not active in search field
            press keys (arrows on keyboard and two letter) in this order
            UP-UP-DOWN-DOWN-LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT-b-a
            accept, and you will have new options…than you can set your thumb size

          • sgrandin

            Ok, thanks, got it now. I had used the Konami sequence to change things early on, but maybe that was before the thumbnail size setting, or I missed it. Set mine with 6 across to 81×60.

            Now, if we could only get rid of the google search bar and those buttons up top…

          • Vux777

            when you enter Konami, there is a option to disable Google search bar..look for it
            but nothing for the top 3 buttons

          • sgrandin

            Got it, thanks!

          • Vux777

            np

          • Vux777

            but you need to know that number of thumbs also depends on window size
            when in window mode,, I have 6 thumbs (usually)

  • Raylan Givens

    Damn it, can’t wait Opera 25 to become stable. It’s becoming the most amazing browser. Please just try to implement as many as possible windows native elements. And please do something about the high cpu & gpu utilization on videos. Thanks!

    P.S. I have directwrite enabled. Please tell me if there is serious issue about. I don’t see any, but what do I know?

    • ayespy

      For some people, directwrite has caused problems with fonts and with page composition on some pages. I don’t have it enabled. I’ve just read that on the blog, here.

      • Raylan Givens

        Thanks. I’ve Nvidia with latest drivers and I don’t notice any problem. Everything seems normal.

  • ricksper

    Every now and then I appear here to ask why Opera doesn’t actually Open a link in a new tab. When I click it from the Context Menu, all it does is create a new tab, it doesn’t open it.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Do you use any extension?

      • ricksper

        I do ,but it has been this way since O15. A tab does get created but I have to locate it on the Tab Bar and open it manually. You would think that it would do as intended. All previous versions of Opera (12 and before) opened those links ready to be viewed with a single click.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Let me see if understood it correctly: when you click on a link, the page opens but on a background tab? Or the page doesn’t even open?

          If the first, i think its by design.

          • ricksper

            I mean this: If I right click on a link to open it in a new tab and choose “Open link in a new tab” from the Context Menu, a new tab gets created in the Tab Bar. Then I have to navigate to the new tab that is created and click on it to open the page.If that is not what “Open in a new tab” means, then they should change the description. Else the action should take place as described. Which is the way it used to work in O12.

          • Vux777

            but description is legity
            you did opened that link in “new tab” right? 😛
            only thing is that you want it to be active not new background tab…there are many extensions for that behavior…and better, dragging links instead of right click-choose /whatever

    • taneli

      If you just mean that it opens in “background tab”, you can always use shift+middle-mouse if you don’t mind using keyboard+mouse.

  • Inquisitor

    I have the ‘Experimental Start Page’ enabled, but I see no difference whether it is enabled or not.

    • You need to enable it both in opera:flags and via the button on the old version

      • Inquisitor

        Thanks, but what is ‘the old version’ and where can I find that button on it?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          On speed dial, there’s a link on the top left to enable the new start page.
          However, i’m not sure if it’s available on 24.

      • That button will only show in Opera 25 Dev.

  • Dark Magician

    By the way, what’s your stand on 64-bit version, since Chrome now has 64-bit beta?

  • nanana1

    Today, with the release of Opera Developer build 25.0.1592.0, we get out first ever glance of the long awaited and requested BOOKMARKS feature !

    http://get.geo.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer/25.0.1592.0/

  • A. R.

    BUG: When you paint a web address (url) with mouse and click CTRL before, while or after painting the url, right click with mouse and select go to web address, when CTRL is at bottom, Opera does not open the link in new window/tab.

  • sgrandin

    Yesterday I noted that at zoom = 100%, Opera Next was sizing pages, e.g., Yahoo home page, much larger than Opera 12.17. I just made both the same size, about 70% of the monitor’s horizontal and full vertical except for the Win 8 taskbar, and measured. On Yahoo’s home page (logged in) the vertical list on the left (Mail -> Autos) takes 12% more screen space in Next 24. Horiztontally along the top (YAHOO! to Mail), it’s 10% longer with Next. That’s on a 24″ 1920×1200 monitor and Windows 8 set to 115% dpi. The other thing to note in appearance is with Next the page has to be sized horizontally much wider to get the same page borders in Yahoo.

  • Add an option to disable auto play of .mp4 video on sites

    Thought about it after https://twitter. com/teamcoco/status/500668377380044800 (Twitter not doing Flash player (tho fake animated .gif ) for Opera Next 24.0.1558.34)

  • AlexBrtn

    what is the process?

  • ammodytes

    I HATE how Opera looks now on my 15 inch 1080 screen with 125% dpi settings inside windows. Please solve this out! Thanks!

  • L33t4opera

    New update: Opera Next 24.0.1558.43, the change log, and the announcement.
