Hi,

To start the week, we have an Opera 50 developer update which focuses on Speed Dial and bookmarks bar refactoring and bug fixes between the two.

 

We have addressed the issue of being unable to drag a Speed Dial tab up into your bookmarks bar to create a bookmark. This should be working now. Also, users were experiencing a stubborn bookmarks bar which would continue to appear despite being told to hide. We have fixed this bug.

You can read check out more fixes for the Speed Dial, bookmarks bar and other changes in the changelog. You can also read about our Opera 49 beta release candidate here.

Check changelog for the full report.

  • Eugene B.

    Opera is getting better and better! Thanks for this new build! 🙂

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Just installed the new beta and now downloading the developer. Oh, shit, my shortcut for Google Translate does not work anymore.

    Sorry I was a bit fast. That was in beta. Now in the new Developer it works.

  • Rudric

    Fantastic improvement to the bookmarks bar! It’s a good idea for devs to revisit features once in a while to add handy improvements!

  • nu4a

    I really hope to see Opera adapting the new Fluent Design on Windows 10.

    • Ghirahim

      YES!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nothing against it but how exactly doing it would improve the user experience?

      • Hetai-Na

        Well, it gets more beautiful and integrated to the system. Design is important, at least for some people.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Just personal taste then.

          • Madelaki

            No, beauty is partially objective.

      • Nekomajin43

        As you must have noticed, some people like to use software, which is fully integrated into the OS’s design. You know, unified interface and user experience on the whole system.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          OK, so it’s just a matter of personal preference.

          • Nekomajin43

            Exactly, like the 99% of requests.

      • nu4a

        Man, did you check that acrylic panels with blur behind it. They are just beautiful. Imagine now how pop-up elements are blending with the browser/website when you open them (like on MacOS), or the address-bar blends with the website when you scroll it up, or the side panels to open with the new Fluent Design animations.

      • Innocent like a virgin

        Unbelivable, you again come here with your stupid replies to users, who write about what they expect in their browser. What the check is wrong with you, seriously? Go back to your cave neanderthal, or get lost in your forest, you bogeyman!

        Do you realize, that your avatar looks like a shadow of an old, fat perver*?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Sorry but this is not exactly a coffee shop or a fast food service where you just order what you want and get it without needing to say much further and without having others challenging your propositions.
          This is more like a work meeting or a House session where you need to convince others that your proposition is good and should be accepted.

          People from Opera have been saying that requests may have a better chance of being implemented if they come with a good user case.

          BTW, welcome to the real world.

          • Innocent like a virgin

            Your comment confirms what I already thought about you, that you bahave like proud peacock, but at the same time it’s really silly. It’s not first time, when I noticed you reply to people with your nonsensical and sarcastic tone, and then, I even asked you to stop doing this. In that way, you only make many users angry, not saying it stright – you really pissing them off. It’s not the right way, if you really want to help people, unless you have a will to achieve something strightly different. What I would like to see and expect from you, is that every time when you are going to reply to somebody in the future, try to provide him with some valuable information, or at least a sensible answer, instead of this really silly trolling like a 7yo child, which can be seen in almost every of your comments so far.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            You freaked out and started attacking me just because I made a simple question to someone and I’m the problem?

            I guess I don’t have much more to say.

          • Nekomajin43

            If only it was the first time…

          • Leonardo Gomes

            And it won’t be the last. This is a place for people to comment, to discuss, to share ideas, to agree and to disagree and I’ll keep doing it.

          • Nekomajin43

            The thing is, you never share or discuss ideas. You only attack new commenters. You have never done anything to make Opera a better browser. It is clear that you are a fanboy, and you are fine with anything they give you to use. Which is not a problem, if you just keep it to yourself. But what you do here on this blog day by day is very destructive to the community.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I’m sure I have been helping Opera to be a better browser since I started using the browser almost 20 years ago.

            I do share and discuss ideas, even when I ask about the benefits of a given proposition.

            And I agree with many of them if I think they may be useful and helpful for the users or if a good reason to implement them is given. Unfortunately it doesn’t happen that often.

      • Rudric

        Hope Opera get’s the Sidebars fluent sometime maybe Q4 2017 🙂

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I doubt it but who knows?

    • Hetai-Na

      It would be great!

  • Regnas

    Endless page loading still happening on some pages..
    And also this bug is still not fixed: https://forums.opera.com/post/22351

    Thx..

  • Ghirahim

    Light theme on speed dial, why?

  • Hetai-Na

    Hi Dear Opera Team, do you really need to replace the favicons in private browsing? It makes harder to distinguish between tabs. Private windows already have a different color, so it is not so necessary, it’s kind redundant. https://imgur.com/ev0PUbl

    Another suggestion for you. Add a context menu on “recently closed” with the option to open in new tab. The same for address bar suggestion. Thank you!

  • iamtelephone

    When opening new tabs from Speed Dial with CTRL + Left Click (or Middle mouse button), the tabs open to the left of the initial tab instead of the right.

    Linux 64bit.

    • iamtelephone

      One more:

      The ‘Hide “Add a site” button’ toggle under “Start Page” on the options page is not working for folders. It removes the main “Add a site” but still shows within each folder.

      Hi, what Opera build you have?

  • Nekomajin43

    Guys, I’d like to ask you to fill a survey to somehow quantify the feature requests: https://goo.gl/forms/RtwV9af9Ot3I7waB2

    We have more than 350 answers! Thanks for everyone who participated.

    Already implemented features from the list:
    – bookmarks export
    – expanding the number of recently closed tabs in the tab menu
    – unit converter
    – screen capture tool

    Currently being implemented:
    – the ability to rearrange extension icons

    New requests on the list:
    – capture full page (not just the visible area)
    – inline translator in the search popup
    – paste option in the search popup (in editable fields)

    If you have already submitted your votes, just open the link again, and you can vote for the new additions.

    I know it’s not representative, but it may help to show the trends and the top most wanted features. We’ve got some positive words from the devs, no promises though.

    If you find anything missing from the list, please comment here or in the forum: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1883544/opera-browser-feature-survey

    as mentioned 8 days before (related to Opera dev. 50.0.2753.0, blog Oct 23, 2017),
    following bugs are still present (not only dev.) – there has NOTHING been changed!!!
    (1) with activated VPN Downloads (> ca. 4-5MB) crashes. Without VPN same DL no problem. This bug exists since weeks! Tried e.g. with DLs from
    – filehippo.com / chip.de / computerbase.de
    screens from this big BUG/error:
    http://s1.bild.me/bilder/110417/4032101ope-dev-DL-fehler2-chip.jpg

    http://s1.bild.me/bilder/110417/7569374ope-dev-DL-fehler_filehippo_.png

    (2) Cache + cookies aren’t always deleted totally, using eg. chromes “chrome://settings/clearBrowserData”. There remains pickings (= more than standard) in user-profile, above all in folder Cache + GPUCache. Cookies similar, sometimes.
    only windows versions.
    linux: after deleting, there are no pickings (cache + cookies). as it should be.

    as well this BUG is still alive. No little alteration.
    aggregated: that’s very poor Opera!

  • fearphage

    I’m still not seeing any *chromecast* capabilities on Linux (Ubuntu 17.04) just like the previous build. I don’t see the option in settings (enable chromecast support) nor do I see any mention of it while streaming video.

    • mike winslow

      I dont see that in either the beta 50 or developer 51..

  • Spinmaster Ashray

    When starting the browser, why is the disk usage high? I noticed when i start the browser; icons from tabs are missing and appear after the disk usage is idle again from high usage.

  • Hetai-Na

    Hi Opera Team. Every time I choose Canadian English as interface language, the browser restart with UK english instead.

    • Ewa

      Hi, seems to be a bug. Reported.

  • Hetai-Na

    Do you have plans to support this?

    https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/en-001

  • Hetai-Na

    Can you remove the “preferred language” setting while VPN is enabled for improved privacy?
    Thank you.

    • ͕͗F͕͕͗͗i͕͕͗͗n͕͕͗͗d͕͕͗͗u͕͕͗͗s͕͗

      Please don’t remove this. Maybe an option would be fine for all.

      • Hetai-Na

        An option is fine. I think if you are using SG VPN, and your language is Armenian, it kinda reveal your real location. At least makes you suspect.

  • Hetai-Na

    Today I selected Netherlands as VPN country, but my connection was sent to Ukraine. Seems something wrong is happening in Opera’s VPN servers.

    Edit (happened again/Printscreen): https://imgur.com/vDxZ6fS

    • Hans Hansen

      I’m connected to VPN Singapore and when I type “Where am I” into Google, it shows my real(!) location and not any other country, even if geolocation is turned off. The Netherlands show the same result.
      EDIT: But only when I use the address field to search for sth.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        Hm, I just tried VPN USA and Google shows me, I am in San Francisco. Everything ok. VPN Netherlands shows Amsterdam. W10x64 1709.

        • Hans Hansen

          Did you try to use the address field to search for “Where am I”? It shows me my real location in Germany.
          But I can confirm the Ukraine bug when I type http://www.google.com into the address field: https://abload.de/img/screenshot86nbj1a.png

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            What I did: I switched to VPN USA here on this page. Then I opened a new page (“CTRL-T”) and typed “Where am I” into the address field. The result was found in my standard search engine “www.google.de”. It shows San Francisco. The same result when I type German “Wo bin ich” instead. Maybe it has something to do with your settings in your adblocker. Mine is uBlock Origin.

          • Hans Hansen

            I found the solution. My UI language was set to English (USA), when I switched it back to my mother tongue (German), it shows google.nl again instead of google.com.ua when connected to VPN Netherlands. Nevertheless it seems to be a bug.

          • Hetai-Na

            While using USA VPN you were redirected to google.de. Even using VPN Google knows your are located in Germany. Something is wrong.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            No, that’s because my standard search enginge is defined with google.de and my computer settings are all in German. When I ask for example https://ipleak.net/ only California is shown as result.

          • Hetai-Na

            Well, so the problem is that it is not possible to change the default google to international (usa) ncr version.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            But what about opening the wanted google page manually?

          • Hetai-Na

            A pain in the ass. Opera can do better.

        • Hetai-Na

          It does not happen every time. You need to close and open Opera some times until you get the bugged NL VPN server.

    • Hans Hansen

      I can confirm the Ukraine bug when I type http://www.google.com into the address field: https://abload.de/img/screenshot86nbj1a.png
      But when I use the address field and search “Where am I” it shows a different result.

    • Hans Hansen

      I found the solution. My UI language was set to English (USA), when I switched it back to my mother tongue (German), it shows google.nl again instead of google.com.ua when connected to VPN Netherlands. Still a bug imo.

    • Юлия

      DNS location spoofing? Opera’s VPN servers are weirdly configured, see this screenshot:
      https://i.imgur.com/ERySHzy.png

      It isn’t leaking my real DNS resolver, because that would have been Yandex.DNS. Opera’s VPN servers are configured to use DNS resolvers from countries other than the actual server’s. At least that seems to be the case with Netherlands’ server – DNS requests were sent to Belgium, and even USA (which is very bad practice, especially speed-wise). In your case I assume an Ukrainian DNS resolved your google query which is probably why you landed on UA-localized Google. And it seems there are a lot more, I remember I used to get requests sent to Finland too.

  • firuz_u7

    Whether it is possible to make recently closed tabs unlimited with a scroll bar down it is much better than 33 because all that is below 33 need to search in history

  • firuz_u7

    The function to show thumbnails of tabs when hovering works very slowly and blinks twice Windows 10 x64 1709
    At first it slowly shows the thumbnail of the previous tab, then it flashes and the thumbnail of the current tab is displayed
    synchronization of tabs is enabled

    • Hetai-Na

      Confirmed in Opera 48.

      • firuz_u7

        yes and on a stable and Beta Opera Confirmed

  • Hetai-Na

    I removed my preferred languages, and enabled VPN in private mode. Google still redirects me to google.com.”mycountrydomain”. Maybe the VPN is leaking this information.

    • Tina

      Hi. Can’t reproduce it. Google.com redirects you to the domain relevant to your current location. So, when you go on google.com with VPN “Netherlands” for example, you should see google.nl

      • Hetai-Na

        if I type google.com with vpn in USA, it stays in USA, in google.com, as it should be. But if a search anything from search bar it redirects me to google.com.br. Maybe the Google Search location in Opera is defined in the installation by the region and language of the system? The problem is real.

      • Hetai-Na

        And things get worse because it can’t be manually fixed, because there is no way to edit search engines nor set a new one as default.

  • Vlad

      Why do you copy my text?

      • Hans Hansen

        It’s a spam bot, that’s the reason. 😉

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          I wanted to flag it and to send it to the moderator, but recently there are boxes to tick and there was nothing that would have fit in any way. That’s why I let it go again. I hoped the moderator would read it.

          • Hans Hansen

            This option fits very well, I think:
            “Spam — posted spam comments or discussions”

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Ok, I’ll try.

  • firuz_u7

    when I turn to any page, and after a while on the address bar, Google search appears
    Here is an example: https://imgur.com/a/vmvFj
    this happens on any page on any thread of Opera stable, beta and developer
    checked on:
    Windows 10 x64 1709
    Windows 7 x64

    i´ve been reporting a very annoying bug since you introduce the rearrange extensions icons in toolbar, the bug is .. we need to click maybe 3 or 4 times an extension icon to do anything .., the extensions i am using are chrome extensions, Homepage https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/homepage/hdacjmeajjdhbgmmeoebpklfmloifahh , and Session manager https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/session-manager/mghenlmbmjcpehccoangkdpagbcbkdpc , i am using opera osx, thanks!

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Anybody here who is successful with Chromecast? With Google Chrome I can send Youtube or any tab or the whole desktop to my tv in the living room. In Opera the Chromecast Adapter in the living room is only recognized and offered in Youtube, not on other pages, and I can not start the transfer. It does not work.
    W10x64 1709
    Operax64
    Google Chromecast Ultra

    • fearphage

      I don’t even see chromecast options on YouTube or in the settings at all. I guess they are limited to Windows or something for now.

      • Ralf Brinkmann
        • fearphage

          I used that version and this one. No mention of chromecasting anywhere in the UI nor on YouTube. I haven’t heard an official word about what that means yet. I saw a Mac user say the same thing. It seems to only be working/available in Windows seemingly.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            I hope the teamies can say something to that fact.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      If I right click on a page and use the ‘cast’ option I can see a dialog that lists my Chromecast.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        I don’t see that on every page, only on Youtube. On other pages (like this one here) I see only “No transfer destinations found”. And on Youtube I can select my living room (Chromecast adapter), then “Transfer”, then, after one second, the little window disappears and nothing else happens.

    • No problem here
      (mint KDE)

      • fearphage

        Yeah, I oversimplified. I thought it was constant, but something puts it into a state where it will crash. I’m not sure what that is though.

  • Maulik Lakhani

    Issue1:

    Whenever a user saves any page as a bookmark:

    A popup under the address saying “Add your first bookmark by using the heart in address bar……….”

    Even if the user has many bookmarks already saved; still it appears.

    Even if the user Goes to settings and “Disables” the “Show bookmarks bar option”

    The annyoing bar again appears whenever user adds new bookmark.

    Issue 2:

    If user has selected “Open the start page” in “On startup”

    then,
    Pinned tab goes away / gets lost after one goes to menu and selects exit.

    It should not happen

  • Maulik Lakhani

    The bookmarks bar issue is not fully solved yet.

    Even if the bar is disabled; it appears again whenever user adds new bookmark.

    Even if users goes to settings and disables it; it will again appear whenever a new bookmark is added.

    Again go to settings > Disable it.

    Add new bookmark >
    It will appear again 🙁 I hate it

  • Let’s Talk

    “opera has detected an unexpected change to your extensions” and disables all extensions every time opera starts (in private mode) on Linux 64 bit. I didn’t change any extensions, I’m positive nothing did. New bug? Anything that I can do to stop opera from automatically disabling extensions? Or to accept some extensions (I do have some unverified extensions that I use daily).

    • We have revisited recently mechanism for blocking malicious extensions which could have affected some profiles by disabling all extensions for user to verify them. This should however happen only once. Unless your profile is tampered outside of Opera all the time.
      Could you give us more details:
      – which Linux distro are you actually using?
      – where is located your Opera profile?
      – how you install those unverified extensions?

      • Let’s Talk

        What do you mean by “your profile is tampered outside of Opera all the time”. What constitutes tampering?

        Please note that I start opera in private mode always. I never start it in regular mode, but I do open some regular, non-private windows after starting the private one.

        • Tampering in this particular case means that Opera detects that files in your profile directory has been modified by some other application. Perhaps your running Opera process wasn’t able to write changes to files in that directory so it’s not able to confirm that it was itself accessing them on next run. We will try to figure out what could be problem here. This is definitely not behaviour we want.

          • Let’s Talk

            I can exclude the kind of tampering you have described. Thanks.

          • So far we tried running distribution you mentioned but haven’t been able to reproduce problem internally. Are you using system restore option? Any non default settings? Problem could happen if your profile is used by different users each time, like different userid, etc.

            Could you report this issue through https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/desktop and using some email address in report so we could track this issue internally and still have way of communicating with you?

      • Artur Pontóglio

        Hi @gmiazga:disqus , I’m kinda having the same problem of him, but I use Opera on Windows 10, and everytime I start the browser it “forgets” all my accounts, and I need to resign-in all of them. Also, the new bookmark toolbar pops up all the time I open a new tab. I’m suspecting of something with cache? Seen any like this?

        • Extension disabling is different thing than other issues you mention.
          Bookmark toolbar had undergone refactoring recently and we are still tracking and fixing bugs related to it.
          As for your accounts that indeed doesn’t sound like normal behaviour. Perhaps for some reason Opera is not able to write to profile directory (some antivirus or simmiliar application could block it) or some other application (malware) is altering your profile outside of Opera. You could try starting Opera with “–user-data-dir=” to use different profile path and see if problem does also happen in such case.

  • Hetai-Na

    Can you add and easier toggle to enable/disable Opera Turbo?

    • xirit64

      Not gonna happen, Turbo is gonna be deprecated soon by the look of things and the switch of more and more websites to https which Turbo can’t handle.

      Please try Turbo Button from the extension catalog.

    Tabs still not usable for advanced users with more than 80-100 tabs, after 18 years with Opera still staying on O44 and waiting for Vivaldi to fix my requests and implement my suggestions. They implemented tabs sidebar in few weeks. You guys are not able to do tabs properly usable for “different” users. I am sad, very sad. It’s incomprehensible to me why you stay on this “UX miserable” position.

  • RomTibo

    It would be great!

  • Ryno

    The thing is, you never share or discuss ideas. You only attack new commenters. You have never done anything to make Opera a better browser. It is clear that you are a fanboy, and you are fine with anything they give you to use. Which is not a problem, if you just keep it to yourself. But what you do here on this blog day by day is very destructive to the community.

    @gmiazga:disqus Notifications not show in Windows 10 action center looks like a bug, reported as DNAWIZ-22042 with official article links about “how to show notification in action center with win32 application”

    Please give a feedback about this issue, it’s really annoying that important notification was disappeared while i’m not at the front of computer

    • Hans Hansen

      Have you activated “Show notification in the info center”? https://abload.de/img/notij6s1p.png

      • Ariane Lu

        It could enable by developer, better than tell every user to enable it manually

        • Hans Hansen

          Tell this Microsoft. Maybe this is not an Opera issue. 🙂 You activate this in the Windows 10 settings.

    • Thanks for report. Indeed seems like some bug which we should be able to fix on our side.

  • Enelen

    Earlier if I opened there tabs (from Speed Dial) A,B and C, they would be in the order ABC on the tab bar, since this new update they are in the order CBA. Is there an option somewhere to restore it back?

    • Hans Hansen

      Known issue, already reported.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    I can not delete files from the download list (CTRL-J) with TAB and ENTER. The TAB works, but the ENTER does nothing.

      confirmed on Win10, working fine in O48 though

  • reallydontreadthis

    Google Drive videos don’t play in Opera.
    Works fine in Chrome
    Any fix?

    • Hans Hansen

      Which OS? Which codec/format did you try? Can you provide a link?
      I tried H.264/MP4 and H.265/MP4 – working fine on Win10

  • Ash72

    Autoupdate is not working for me. It downloads, but after restart opera I have the old version again.

    • Artex

      manually download and install the update

  • jan

    Thanks for fixing bug with maximised window on Linux 🙂

  • Hetai-Na

    Some websites spoof the user agent and refuse to work with Opera, even if it works with Chrome. I have an idea for you. Add an easy “Chrome Compatibility” to Opera, to fake its user agent to appear to websites as Chrome.

    I’m not able to add bookmarks by dragging them onto the bookmarks bar. Is this normal behavior?

  • Tony Cezar Goularte

    Although i’m aware that Opera browser is not a “modern desktop app”, i’d like to see some fluent design elements in the browser. For instance: Blurry or acrylic effect.

  • Stefan Ivanović

    When multiple tabs are saved as Speed Dial folder, when opened as ‘Open all in new tabs’ they open in reverse order (I see some other users reporting similar issue with taskbar, showing in reverse order).

    Speaking of multi tab to speed dial folders save, I use that because Save session in gone. Why!? Sessions were excellent thing to have. Even MS Egde has something like that now, reading list or something, can’t recall the name of the feature…

    • xirit64

      About the sessions, as a workaround you can open the SD folder items in a new window, then when you close it it is accessible again through the tab menu (top-right). Then you don’t have to be on the SD to open them again.
      Also I never understood as well the thing with the bookmarks bar, contrary to SD items or links that open next to the current tab, items from it are opening as last tabs.

  • Let’s Talk

    It used to be – last time I verified two builds ago – that if I _started_ opera with “opera –private url1” then also ran “opera –private url2”, url1 and url2 would open in different tabs of the same private window. That was good. However now opera opens url1 in the first tab of the private window, and url2 in the first tab of a regular, non-private window. That isn’t good. If I add “–new-window” to both commands, opera opens two private windows, so at least incognito mode is achievable. But how can I convince this build to open both urls in the same (first) private window, as it used to do?

  • RomTibo

    And things get worse because it can’t be manually fixed, because there is no way to edit search engines nor set a new one as default.

  • alexandrep56

    Great update as always ! Thanks Opera !
    But could you add TouchBar support for the sidebar ? It would be awesome 🙂

  • Please fix the bug :
    1. Google Keep Extension not work on OperaDev 50.0.2759.0

    **Download Chrome Extension (Official by Opera Software):

    **Google Keep Chrome Extension :

    2. Unable to download files bigger than 2MB directly from Opera and need to install download manager to be completed (not interupted or suddenly stopped and show error in red text).

    Thank you.

  • Laga Mahesa

    CTRL or SHIFT + Reload still broken. Is this at least on the ‘to fix’ list? Having to jump in and out of the dev console just to force a reload with CTRL+SHIFT+R is annoying.

  • modemjunkie

    Thanks for fixing “Save as PDF” when implemented from the context menu. I was just about to complain again but decided to test first. 🙂

  • modemjunkie

    Now that is cool. While just testing and playing around with “Save as PDF,” I was able to save a year of my Instagram thumbnails in one .pdf. I didn’t try to go back any farther. Some night when I can’t sleep I’ll try to go back to the beginning. Awesome. Thanks.

  • modemjunkie

    Oops. I spoke too soon. After saving several pages with no problem, attempting to save the following page to pdf, Developer crashed and reopened with no open tabs. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/destinations/2017/11/11/mississippis-foodie-gem-oxford-lures-hungry-visitors/849082001/

    • Artex

      I managed to save it with no crashing

      • modemjunkie

        Hmm. Worked this time. Odd.

        • This might be a timing issue. That’s why it can’t be reproduced easily. There are some fixes on the way. They’ll be part of the upcoming developer.

  • Artex

    The built in adblocker is great but does not block all ads, for example on 123movies .net (no spaces) after choosing a movie or tv show to watch there is an big ad with clickbaity titles and pics under “interesting for you”.

    I’ve checked on other adblockers and they manage to block it with easylist. Yet Opera’s adblocker with easylist enabled is unable to.

    Please fix this
