Hi,

Today, we would like to share an updated stable build with you. It contains a few important fixes:

  • Unpinned Opera does not pin itself back to Windows’ taskbar anymore. Many of you reported this issue to us under the last blog post – thank you!
  • Red UI elements in high-DPI issue are fixed
  • Global menu in Unity is back
  • Current theme is now updated when selecting it from “Customize start page”

All the details are listed in the changelog, as usual.

  • Leonardo Gomes

    Thanks for the release.

    • Robert Tomaszewski

      Hi Leonardo,
      You are very welcome 🙂

  • firuz_u7

    Still Chrome 58.0.3029.81 (

  • verter

    What about DNA-53282? There’s other browser, called Vivaldi. It’s based on Chrome like Opera and has side panel too. And it doesn’t have this annoying bug. So I will install it on all computers I configure and recommend it to my friends from now on.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What this bug is about?

      • verter

        Opera.exe and opera_autoupdate.exe are in the folder named after version – so with every update its name changes and I have to make new rules in firewall (even for this small update). Because of this I can’t recommend Opera to any less advanced computer user. Many people can’t do this – they just want their machine to work.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I remember have seen it happening a couple of times but that was it.

          Anyway, I guess it may require a major change in how Opera is installed so if/when such change comes, it will happen on developer channel.

        • BK

          Leonardo is right. This requires major change in the way how auto update is handled. The work is progressing on this, but slowly.

          • verter

            Why? Could you explain a little bit more?

    • Ariane Lu

      As i know, they have a lot of bugs and defect, like: developer tools can only open in pop-up, slow ui
      BTW: Installed since Technical Preview, but never think it’s ready for use

      • verter

        But it works, unlike Opera.

  • ktxgio

    thanks for new release

    • Robert Tomaszewski

      Hi ktxgio,
      We do not push migrating automatically (by means of auto update mechanism) from 32 to 64-bit. However if you update your browser using the network installer with links that are in the blog post above you should finally get 64-bit build on your computer and your profile (navigation data) should stay with you. If additionally you wish to keep your profile data even more secured, just in case (e.g. disk damage or other unexpected situation) you can back your data up or start using Sync service. Exact path to your profile data folder you can find on the page “opera:about”.

      • ktxgio

        thanks but i tried to install x64 build selecting “import data from default browser” and all is ok
        now i have x32 and x64 builds for memory usage tests

        • Ariane Lu

          I don’t know about memory usage, but i can’t open some huge Web APP with 32 bit version, also, it’s slow on large data process, you can just remove 32 bit version

  • You guys really need to fix the Menu covering opened tabs.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What do you mean?

  • jojoPL1987

    In this and previous version I do not have to save the email address in the login form on http://www.microids.com/EN/microids-club

    • Robert Tomaszewski

      Hi jojoPL1987,
      Do you mean saving the password mechanism does not save it actually in your case? Do you use Sync service?

      • jojoPL1987

        No, I do not use saving passwords in Opera. It’s about saving the login itself (double-click on the “Your E-mail address”). Yes, I use sync but only bookmarks and browser settings.

    • Radek Rzepecki

      We are aware of this bug.

  • Blapidoup

    The video pop-out does not resize automatically to keep the video ratio once again.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Did it ever done it?

      • Blapidoup

        Yes, it goes on and off on each update. But it didn’t work for several versions now.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, I don’t remember have seen the pop-up doing it.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          BTW, maybe related to DNA-56914 [Windows] Remove fixed aspect ration from detached video window ☣ ?

  • Daniil

    Thank you very much! Best web browser in human history. 😉

  • Nico

    The update also sneaked in a new Speed Dial entry from booking.com, at leat for me. I’ve said it before and I say it again: This is not cool, this shouldn’t happen while updating the browser. Sure, I know how to remove Speed Dial entries, but things like this make me wonder: What else is an update trying to sneak in?

    • BK

      Hi Nico. How often did you see that happening?

      • Nico

        Hi BK!

        It happened quite a lot in the past. I don’t have an exact number for you, but I would say it’s happening every third to fifth update. Doesn’t matter if it’s just a minor update (like the current one) or a big update (like from O43 to O44).

        • Steven D.

          Did the exact same for me, on my windows 10 machine and my work laptop’s windows 7 machine.

        • Caleb Budde

          It just happened to me today… I was on a school computer that doesn’t allow browser updates without permission and it just appeared there.

          • Caleb Budde

            It occurred right now on my home computer as well…

      • Ariane Lu

        Same issue, last day, i deleted it, appear again after upgrade

      • Nekomajin43

        It has just happened to me too. Not right after the update. In a fresh update, it’s ok. I am willing to delete the spam once. But after that, it is unacceptable. Please, take this issue the most seriously!

      • Nekomajin43

        Booking.com appeared again after the latest dev update. Seriously, stop the spam!

  • Pavel Novotný

    What about the blue bokkmarks bar folder icons, has it been fixed (to grey)?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I guess the new color is part of the UI changes.

      • redfox

        It is part of Google’s (Chromium) changes, but it should not be too hard to modify it by the Opera developers. I tried to find where the bokkmarks folder icons are located, but couldn’t locate them as separate files, or in the application dll’s.

  • rocy76

    First of all great work on the Browser!! Just a suggestion, Is it possible to pin the Personal News Feed to the side bar? Similar to the messenger app..Or Better yet add Twitter app? Thanks!!

  • Charles Hunley

    Even after updating I’m still seeing a sliver of the taskbar when the Youtube player is set to full screen.

    Also the browser window doesn’t correctly size to the screen resolution.

    Running Opera 32-Bit on Windows 7 x64 with Screen resolution 1280×720.

  • Caleb Budde

    Show windows color on top bar doesn’t work. Make it work again, it would make the dark theme look cool.

  • crash to update

    • Robert Tomaszewski

      Hi Chas4,
      Did you try install from the link given in the blog port or you use opera:about to force auto update? Could you let us know the steps that led to the crash please? Did the update finish at any next attempts finally?

      • opera:about then click relaunch and Opera crashed to update (it was updated after the crash, Opera sent the crash report)

      • opera:about and clicked relaunch and that is when it crash (it is on an off for all version for a few months now).

  • Kiefer Abram

    Getting since stable 45 opera not responding with like 100 pop ups and the whole browser not workig

  • oic

    is the oldside bar now called extensions bar?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nope, they are different things.

      • oic

        if you right click the old side bar, it says hide extension bar

        • Leonardo Gomes

          There is the extensions side bar, where you can add extensions into and there is the navbar, the one with Speed Dial, Bookmarks, News, etc.
          The navbar is the new sidebar.

  • Ariane Lu

    It’s possible to allow user use a lighten sidebar? I don’t like the black one, really ugly.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I think side bar background color should follow the theme.

  • lucrudites

    Since the update Opera doesn´t take the system color.
    https://db.tt/6qE9ml9OsX
    Clould you fix it?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It may be a bug or it may be an outdated setting. Only time will tell.

      • Mike

        If it’s an outdated setting (as in the titlebar is the correct colour) it’ll be a new browser for me. Having the titlebar the same colour whether it’s active or inactive is an incredibly stupid idea!

    • Nigel

      I would also like this to be fixed.

  • Shion

    First, you try to open that: Opera takes some time, Firefox does that a bit faster. Then try to select some text: both browsers would hung up for minutes.

    I wish I could see that 0:01 counter now.

      • Erik

        Ok, IF i have the linux window manager compositor disabled, i see big black borders around every drop down menu.
        For example the drop down >> on the top right corner shows big black borders around any menu present.
        If i enable the window manager compositor, i don’t see the big black borders any more, but have a different problem: menu simply disappear.
        I’m on Manjaro Linux KDE Plasma desktop environment.
        Sorry for my bad english.

        • Radek Rzepecki

    When there will be corrections or will this function be improved?

    • qwerzaq

      I also wrote about this but I have not received an answer so far. Select link does not work very well
      Opera 12, Vivaldi, Extension select like a boss works much more conveniently

      • Blapidoup

        Actually the select links functionality have been added not long ago/ Have you tested it lately?

  • Ramsey

    Are you going to add “Reload tab” in the context menu of tabs? That’s a basic feature that is missing, along with re-ordering the extensions’ icons on the url bar. When will you allow us to middle click on pinned tabs to close them? Add it as a setting for advanced users.

  • After the Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) in Opera I cannot open the pop-ups in “Tab menu”, “Downloads”, “Block ads” and “VPN”
    Even the omnibox doesn’t open its pop under

    Neither in Opera Developer 46

    • I had to disable the “Override software rendering list” and let opera go to software only
      My graphics card is an Intel HD Graphics 520

      • Same here with an Intel G41 Express chipset on two different PCs and a laptop with Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset, already reported several times with recent stable versions.

  • saturnfreeway

    The alignment of the extension icons on the toolbar is wrong.

    • Ewa

      Thanks, reported

  • ShintoPlasm

    Could you please add ‘Open all in tabs’ to folder structures in the Bookmarks menu on macOS? Both Safari and Firefox have a similar feature.

    • Vux777

      on win10 I have that item on context menu… in bookmarks manager tree and from O menu
      only bookmarks bar root folder from O menu is different t(it has only one action on context menu)

      • ShintoPlasm

        It’s different on Mac, which doesn’t have the O Menu. I know you can do this via the bookmarks page but that is quitd cumbersome when bookmarks are also available from the Mac’s top menu. Would be a useful feature….

  • Please, let customize the new sidebar, adding custom shortcuts!

  • Tom Wilson

    for the life of me, i cannot find “tools”,
    i have Googled this but no one can give complete instructions on how to get into it to change the skin. it seems to have disappeared over time. i cannot even get into config using opera: config.
    please have these fixed in order to customise my Opera

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There is no ‘tools’ in Opera Chromium (Opera 15 and newer) as well as there is no ‘skins’.

      Those were features Opera Presto. The same is valid for opera:config, that currently points to settings page.

      • Tom Wilson

        so, how do i change the skin as this pale blue one looks terrible?
        why were these 2 options removed as it would let the user customise easier, like Firefox does.
        do you plan to re-instate them in future updates?
        many thanks

        • Leonardo Gomes

          You don’t change, there is no such option. You can only switch between light and dark modes.
          And the option wasn’t removed, it was never implemented.

  • Updater on Windows does not work right
    ” 44.0.2510.1449 (PGO) – New version 45.0.2552.812 is available” Is what shows for about 10 minutes (internet speed is not the issue)
    Seen it on Windows 7 though 10 & the tech previews

    • wait a few minutes and refreshing Opera://about “44.0.2510.1449 (PGO) – An error occurred while checking for updates”

      • Quit Opera 15 minutes later, open Opera then it updates

    • Shion

      Almost same situation here – unable to get an update via opera:about page. It downloads the update, does it up to 100%, gives out the “restart” button, but it restarts to current version and starts “the update” all over again. Have to download online installer for updates every time.

  • Hassan Zakai

    Hi, for me the tablet mode isn’t working correctly (force touch interface under browser settings doesn’t do anything). Neither does the show system color on the top bar or the disable tab bar’s top spacing. Not really sure why.

    Youtube.com is a mess, I don’t blame opera for it. When I get out of a full screen video, there is a gap from the top of the window and the tabs for some reason, it goes away when i click to another tab. It is generally really slow, and clicking my shortcut from the bookmarks bar makes the youtube website completely blank except for the search bar, I have to reload it in order to get the full site to work.

    Lastly, the pop-out video player has been getting worse for me. It used to be in the aspect ratio of the video I was watching without any black border (16:9). It would be resizable only in 16:9 so I wouldn’t have to keep constantly adjust it to remove the unsightly black bars on the sides, now it is really bad. There are black bars no matter what I do and the video title remains there for a long time, taking up a large portion of the player. There are also no buttons for me to full screen the video from the player as well.

  • иван иванов

    Pls, make other color for interface, only white and gray – its very suxx. Im hate this.

  • Mr. Legit

    Please guys, fix this problem with the themes on xfce

  • danielo

    Would be nice to have a “classic” color theme, just like we have the dark theme option. I understand that there are new features/icons but the colors were fine before for most (better in my opinion), so for the case of the colors and future changes as an exercise try to think about this now and then: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Please add the classic theme option.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      And what would be that ‘classic’ theme?

      • danielo

        Opera 44 had a different theme than this new one, the differences are subtle but I really liked the old one more and I noticed the change instantly after the update. You can download opera 44 from filehippo and create a portable/usb install to compare if needed.

  • nsbox nsns

        slow on youtube, while opening or playing it stops a beat.. it even stops my pc other programs. when opening websites with java or advertisements also slower work. can’t play anymore some online radio stations..

    How to solve?

  • What is wrong with YouTube? The HTML5 player looks very weird.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It seems fine here.

    • Try holding shift and reload the page.

  • la xia

    Asks for permission [twice each time] to open local browser pages or links/shortcuts in up to date win7 64bit os

      Seems to have settled by itself, after opening and closing browser.

  • la xia

    Anyone help reverting back to version 44. [Best by far from any other browser/version for me].

    • Юлия

      You can find it here:
      https://download3.operacdn.com/pub/opera/desktop/44.0.2510.1449/win/
      You can use it for a while, but using an outdated version of a browser may present a security risk. Eventually you’ll have to switch to an updated browser. Right now it’s probably fine, in a few months.. who knows. Download “Setup”, not “AutoUpdate”.

      • la xia

        Thanks a lot. I will stick to v.45 for a little more since it is OK with added permission requests, after having the browser restarted

    • Caleb Budde

      Go to you program files and try deleting 45 folder and opening 44. If that doesn’t work, there’s no way you’ll go back.

  • Andrei

    Hello. Version 45 has been added to the side panel, which can not be completely turned off. Huge please do a full shutdown of the sidebar, as it was prior to version 45. This panel I do not like!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      If you unpin the sidebar it will return to what it was before.

      • Andrei

        No detachment settings sidebar does not disable the panel completely. There is a strip. I wish that there is absolutely nothing was. Both versions …, 42, 43, 44

        • Leonardo Gomes

          What strip?

          • Caleb Budde

            I don’t know that’s a good question.

    Since version 45 update, my Windows 7 video driver is broken. After a few minutes of browsing i loose the video driver, black screen, i have to re start. I can stay up & running my windows desktop with chrome or firefox, no more with Opera. Just a pity since i am using Opera since 10 years and wont have to not use it anymore. Any idea ?

    • Check for graphics card driver updates, and that there is no dust inside the system

  • I love Opera and have been using it for a long time now, 5+ years.

    However since the update I did to 45.0.2552.812, I have a horrendous issue with local SelfSigned certs for my development sites that I run locally on my Mac.

    Previously in the 44.x version, I would have the cert trusted for my account and would show green padlock and everything when browsing them.

    However now it throws a warning error on every page load in my local sites requiring me to add it again and again and again for no reason even when the cert is already showing as trusted.

    Please fix this.

    Thanks!

    There is nothing wrong with this update at all whatsoever. I’ve loved/used opera for 3 years, and I’ve tried all the other browsers.

  • So when is the font issue with dark themes (e.g. Adwaita Dark) going to get fixed?

  • Click to play is broken on http://m.mlb.com/ (the 2nd click to play to behind a invisible frame)

    After the latest update I can’t listen to any voice message in Facebook and I can’t play any video in Facebook as well. I have problems related to the audio of Youtube: when I pause a video the audio just continues playing, and when I resume the video I get to audios in the same time, that doesn’t happen with the other browsers with the same extensions that I use with Opera
