Today, we have a beta update. This is a maintenance update with the following highlights:

  • We lowered flash requirements to version 23 so Linux users don’t have to install the latest flash
  • We fixed the Mac issue with opening Developer Tools
  • Detached Facebook videos don’t have artifacts anymore
  • Searching with ‘Y’ keyword at the beginning directs to Yahoo search again

Changelog contains full list of changes.

    Thanks for this Opera 44.0.2510.401Beta update and hope that “DNA-59016 File picker for some downloads doesn’t show” fixes the broken Download feature regression that I have been experiencing in the past few weeks. 😉

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    I don’t see anything about VPN (freeze when switching on/off) in the changelog, but it seems to be fixed.

    “DNA-59686 [Bookmarks] Unable to undo deleted folder(fixed)”
    YAY! 🙂
    Thanks for this new version.

    No reborn? 🙁

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Like was said in the first Opera Beta 44 post, Reborn will stay on developer channel for now.

  • reiner1302

    Why no reborn???

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Most probably because it wasn’t considered ready to make into Beta channel.

      • reiner1302

        And why no update in the developer channel?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          There will be one when they have something ready to show up.

          • reiner1302

            OK. thx. hopefully its coming soon.

    This and the last beta have shown loading circles running on and on. Screenshot: http://tinypic.com/m/jr62a0/1 (center, by Titleist). It isn’t happening with other browsers I have: IE11, FF, Vivaldi, Slimjet.

    Changing text size does not have any effect on most of the sites.

    Bug: Start downloading a big file(so it doesn’t finish downloading during recreation of this bug). Click the Downloads button at the far right corner of the address bar(tool bar). Then click somewhere else so that the Downloads pop-up disappears. Then press the Download button from the tool bar again. You will see the “Clear” button at the bottom left corner of Downloads pop-up. Pressing it will cause all downloads to clear, including any ACTIVE download(currently downloading file). This problem doesn’t happen when you open Download section(opera://downlad) and press “Clear downoads”.

    Hello, I’m using this beta build but I don’t know why the VPN doesn’t work at all. When I do a clean install it works perfect (saving my profile file com.operasoftware.OperaNext and then using it with the new instal makes it to don’t work properly again) and I don’t know why. I have installed only 3 extensions: lastpass, uBlock and turn of the lights but I don’t know exactly what is causing the vpn to not work. Does anyone have any ideas? P.D: I’m using MacOSX 10.9.5

    Has anyone been able to get the Citi/Costco (US) website to work properly with Opera? Sometimes it loads just text down the side. Other times, it’s half formatted correctly so I can sign in, but still has a lot of erroneous text on the accounts page. And when I set up a payment in the latter case, the next page, the one before submitting, hangs and runs on and on. None of this happens with IE11, FF, Vivaldi or SlimJet, all of which work perfectly. Of course, Citi customer service says they don’t “directly” support Opera, but then other banks don’t either and their sites work because they want customers’ experience to be at least acceptable. But could there be something on Opera’s end that needs fixing? The site’s been this way since Costco switched over from Amex to Citi last June.

    Speed Dial editing: with this beta, the Edit box and fields are very small.

  • good job!

    New Opera 44.0.2510.433 Beta build available:


  • Should we expect any major updates that would change something? Or there are gonna be numerous minor bug fixings?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Usually major changes happen on the developer channel. On Beta it’s only bug fixes and some polishing to get it ready for Stable.
