Hi,

Since we’re getting close to Opera 46, we would like to introduce the release candidate.
We hope it is in a stable-solid build. Let us know if it’s not.

We added bunch of new translations and fixed some bugs. Check out the changelog for details.

Installation links:

    New Autosort Bookmarks CE v1.3 extension for Opera and Chrome. You are welcome to download it from http://foxtools.tk/abce .
    It has also been submitted to publish on https://addons.opera.com, but it will take some time…

    My cache for the beta is in the folder named OperaNext 😛

    If you don’t care about bug repots like this one, just tell me. This is the third consecutive update where I’m reporting this, I’ll just copy paste from the last time:

    A bug got reintroduced recently, present in this version as well.

    To reproduce it: Open a folder in the Bookmarkbar -> rightclick a bookmark -> press v (on German interface) on your keyboard to delete it

    Opera crashes and restarts. I think I tried it one or two more times after it initially happened, to confirm it. After that Opera started with all Extensions disabled.

    Clicking it with your mouse works just fine.

    Some months ago we already had this bug in the beta, I reported it and it got fixed, but I don’t know which version that was ..

    Windows 7 x64
    Opera beta 32bit 46.0.2597.19

    • Ewa

      Hi, could you please add more detailed description or record a movie with this bug?

      • Hans Hansen

        I think he described it very precisely, but here you go:
        https://youtu.be/r8a3vAQn9T8
        I can confirm this bug on Win10 x64 v1703

    • RafaellaG

      Can confirm this behavior even in DEVELOPER 47.0.2615.0 x64
      Win10x64.

      (set Browser/ Languages to German – Deutsch; restart; display bookmark bar (Lesezeichenleiste); create a new folder (Ordner) with right-click on bookmark bar (Lesezeichenleiste); add Bookmark (Lesezeichen) in new Folder (Ordner); open Folder (Ordner); right-click on bookmark (Lesezeichen); press “v” …an voilà… CRASH and restart)

      Works only in German.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Reporting the same problem lots of times doesn’t mean that it will be fixed faster.

      • ive

        I’m only reporting it again, because I got no reaction before.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, you should not expect any.

          • Andrey

            Why?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Because people not necessarily will reply to any comment posted here.

          • Andrey

            In which place do people necessarily respond to any comments?

    • Sebastian

      Thanks, bug was reported.
      We’ll see what we can do 🙂

  • Александр Липницкий

    In the version Opera beta 46.0.2597.19(there are no such problems only up to version 44 inclusive), the problem when opening the browser for a fraction of seconds is displayed in the theme of Windows (who has a light then just a transparent screen for a fraction of a second)(WIN 7 x64)

    • Gordon Freeman

      Does it help if you start Opera this way ? -> … launcher.exe” –disable-direct-composition

      • Andrey

        No

  • OsuYar

    Will you ever allow us to use VPN only for websites we need it to? I believe this would increase this function usability +remove some stress from servers since not EVERY site will be loaded through service

  • Regarding font smoothing, not much to add.

    So I don’t repeat to often this request, could a dev respond about my suggestion to include all the settings and extension and experiment pages/windows in the new dark mode UI. As one who makes ALL bright websites dark in some manor, either using Stylus or the extension ‘Care your eyes’. I find going from a dark web page to a very bright settings or add-ons window late at night on a large screen very harsh on the eyes.

    It would be good if each settings and other back end pages/windows could also show a dark mode UI switch at the top of each window/page. Including the right click context menus and top drop down menus. Important to also include these as well, so the whole dark mode UI is complete. Thank you.

  • Eugene B.

    Will we see a new build of Opera developer this week guys? 🙂

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I wouldn’t expect one.

  • _artem_

    i want so bad to have nightly builds for dev channel, every day a new build

    • Eugene B.

      That would be awesome!

    • nanana1

      Confirmed here with Win 7 SP1 64-bit too !

  • Yehor

    Are there any plans to make #windows-10-skin option disabled http://prntscr.com/fk0l31 work again?
    opera://flags/?search=10#windows-10-skin
    The last version where it still works fine is opera 44

    It would be nice to have a VPN Server in Polad

  • shounen

    did they fixed images crashing? [opened in separate tabs]

  • redfox

    Dear Devs,
    the Windows registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClientsStartMenuInternetOperaStableCapabilities FileAssociations] does not have these entries:
    “.mht”=”OperaStable”
    “.mhtml”=”OperaStable”
    They have to be inserted manually, to inform Windows, that Opera is able to handle MHT(ML) files. Without this fix, Opera does not appear in the “Open with…” list of applications for these file types.
    Please, update it in a next version. Thanks.

    • Mikolaj Boc

      Thanks for letting us know. We’ll take a look at this.

  • redfox

    Opera 45S often “finishes” downloading and displays the text “Download finished” in the download manager, but in fact, the file is only partially downloaded. No resume option, only open or execute.
    How is that possible? Why is Opera not capable to detect that the download was interrputed?

    • Andrey

      Why you write that in Beta news?

      • redfox

        It also applies to O46.

        • Andrey

          > often “finishes” downloading and displays the text “Download finished” in the download manager, but in fact, the file is only partially downloaded.
          Where? How can i see it?

          • redfox

            Ctrl+J

          • Andrey

            All downloads finished and fully downloaded…

          • redfox

            Try it on a wifi or another unstable connection. Today, I downloaded the Opera installer…. Opera claimed the download is finished, but the file had only 19MB (should have ~ 40MB).

          • Andrey

            ‘Download error’ – if disable network on firewall.

          • redfox

            The bug only occurs if there is a connection timeout, not a forcible interruption. For example, if the VPN/proxy is overloaded, which happens quite often these weeks..

          • Andrey

            Timeout – 1 minute, 5, 10?

          • redfox

            I don’t know how much time in set in the Chromium engine for a connection timeout… it will be seconds, not minutes.

          • Andrey

            May be you record video about this “bug”?

          • redfox

            Sorry, I already deleted all corrupted downloads. I thing the bug’s description is clear enough, no need to make a video.

          • Andrey

            i can’t reproduce it

  • romath

    Ad block having a hard time on this page: https://www.lifewire.com/backblaze-review-2617894

    • Leonardo Gomes

      How? It seems OK here.

      • romath

        Yep, not sure what happened.

  • Andrey

    Why ‘ru adlist’ from Opera adblock is very old?

    Please, would it be possible to not open the special URL after Opera is uninstalled?
    It opens in MSIE, which sets itself as default browser, adds quick launch bar entry, also adds a
    start menu item. I have to delete it all again… Thanks.

    And, would it be possible to add checkboxes to the installer, to not pin Opera to the taskbar, add a quick launch icon and an entry in Start/Programs? I want only the shortcut on the Desktop.

    Hi, after update to 46.0.2597.19 (PGO) Win64 I have the problem that after closing Opera and reopening it immediately closes. After the next start all my open tabs are gone. This happened twice now. The last time a part of a notification was stuck open which disappeared after closing Opera. Will try the newest Beta now and tell you when it happens again.
