        Hi, Opera permanent crashes when the VPN is on and when I enter an any query in a new tab in the address bar.
        I sent the bug report via browsers ability.
        I have installed the latest version of the browser for Mac

        • Ewa

          Hi, what version of macOS you have?

          • Sergey Sergeev

            Hi, Mac OS X 10.13.2 (High Sierra) 64 bit

          • Ewa

            No issues here on Mac OS X 10.13.2 64-bit. Could you try to clean profile and check again?

    Hello, Figure 1 when you start the opera here is such a window for a few seconds. Figure 2 in version 49 of the opera at a scale of 100%, all the folders were in one line, and to make in version 50 you have to put 90%. Figure 3 removed the plus sign, a small space between the labels and plus because of this a large space (space) at the end, because of the same plus, probably. Figure 4 shamanism in Casper and voila vpn will work.

    VPN is still in terrible shape. Any update would be nice.

  • redfox

    The “Add Bookmark” entry is still missing in Bookmarks Bar folders.

    • oldq

      menu the folder – add site

      • redfox

        too complicated

      • Nogames52

        Thanks. Worked. For the record I like the old way with the add page at the top of the folder contents. Just saying. And, if it’s going to be this way it would be clearer if the option was “add page” NOT not “add site” which implies for example the ****.com, not the specific “page on the “****.com”.

  • Ruslan Kiwi

    Would it be possible to add more currencies to your “On text selection convert currency” feature?
    For instance, there are many non recognized international currencies from “Recent price added” box in http://www.numbeo.com, e.g. “8,500.00AED” (UAE); “35,000.00৳” (Bangladesh); “72.50Rs” (India); etc.

  • There is still no Chrome cast in the settings for me.

  • Paolo Ferrari

    I notice two issues:
    1- there is no more “blue dot” when new feeds added in Personal News
    2- I use two displays: the laptop and an external monitor. When I move Opera between the displays, top bar (where there are Menu, tabs and address bar) become all black,

      Hi,
      1. Confirmed and reported.
      2. Do you have #enable-gpu-rasterization flag enabled?

  • F Scan

    Noticed an issue on FHD screens – sometimes dropdown menu on different sites is not displaying correctly (the list itself has wrong position and displayed in weird place (but still visible)).

      Hi, could you provide a screenshot?

    “Your browser is VULNERABLE to Spectre”
    With Strict Site Isolation enabled, on a fully patched PC, BIOS microcode too.

    • ktxgio

      using opera 50.0.2762.58 x32 on windows 7 x64 with all updates: your link test says me that my browser is not vulnerable

      • Muad Dib

        That is quite weird. Screenshot below:
        https://i.imgur.com/mbhtzN6.png
        However, the test DID come as not Vulnerable for me too.. once. After that it just came as vulnerable. There’s a significant difference between Opera and Edge/IE too. The test on Opera runs to 128MB (see pic) uses lots of CPU and lasts quite a bit. On Edge/IE it immediately comes as Safe/Not Vulnerable.

        Edit: this is on a 8700K i7 and Windows 10 x64 FCU in case it might be helpful for some devs. Fully updated OS. BIOS with microcode update provided by MSI.
        —-
        Oh, gave it another run for the test:
        https://i.imgur.com/pA2FN9D.png
        Is this test defective?
        What’s going on… I wonder.

        • ktxgio

          i repeat test… now it says vulnerable
          If is this test defective…. probably

          • Muad Dib

            I’ve sent a tweet to the guys that provided it (Tencent something something). You should give it a run on Edge by the way, just to see the differences (test goes Not Vulnerable immediately, not after all that memory reading). It’s as if the test fails to do anything on Edge/IE.
            Regardless, in the end it doesn’t matter much. Working Spectre codes (on patched machines) have sprung all over the web, Mac, Windows, Linux – all are affected. The vulnerability is WAY harder to fix compared to what it was thought, and none is safe from it as of now.
            Sad days, thanks Intel.

    • Charles Hunley

      Says ” Not Vulnerable” for me also so it might be your computer instead.

      https://imgur.com/jacCXC9

      • Muad Dib

        Nah, I believe Tencent changed their test. I sent a tweet so they might have not properly implemented theis for Opera, cause now it is functioning completely diffrent, just like Edge/IE. If you look on previous screnshots, the test would read cache for quite a while (while also reading using about 30-40% of a 8700K i7), and then it might fail or might come OK – kinda depending on your luck.
        Now the test immediately fails and there’s no cache reading at all, and it doesn’t take more than a second to run.
        Since Opera is still the same version, I think Tencent fixed their test.

      • Muad Dib

        PS: sadly I’m not really sure what did they do to the test. It now comes as Not Vulnerable even without the site isolation flag.
        I am mor and more of the opinion this test is sadly useless and there’s a need for another, proper browser test to be developed.

  • Leonardo

    Please, someone fix this :c
    since opera 49, the browser recognize the stylus as a “touch” instead of like a “Mouse” entry, resulting in strange behavior like being unable to resize or move video pop-up, resize or move the snapshot tool or draw with it (killing the propouse of the drawing tool), i cant even do basic stuff like highlight text, and if i touch a text box it shows the on-screen keyboard, even if im using a keyboard.
    its getting annoying. please fix it. opera 48 works properly

    thanks if you read :/

    I didn’t get the DNA-66467. The Bookmarks bar now shows up when I include a new entry in the ‘Bookmarks bar’ folder. It doesn’t happen with other folders. Is this a feature or a bug?

  • Kamil

    In my browser “Duplicate tab” option doesn’t work any more. Did you remove it or is it a bug? I used it very often especially in case of problems with pages. It was just comfortable.

    • In the Norwegian version it’s renamed “Copy tab” and moved down on drop-down list.

      • Kamil

        Thanks a lot!

  • Simon de Haas

    Same issues here. WIN 10 x64

  • Abram Rosa

    When I create a folder with about five speed dials in it, and I click on a speed dial within the folder and when the site is fully rendered, I click back on either the back arrow or a rockers gesture back, it will take me back to the opened speed dial folder I had originally came from. The problem I’m having is when I attempt to click on another speed dial within that same folder I created, the whole tab freezes, and if I have other tabs opened, they will not function properly(clicking on a link will redirect the site to a site I was previously on.). I really enjoy using Opera over the more popular. I came from Firefox and Chrome. This is the best browser in the history of browsers. Why aren’t you guys as popular as Chrome? I don’t understand. It’s a really great product. IMHO Thanks you

  • Nik

    Hi, ever since last auto update to Version 50.0.2762.58,

    My speed dial is not showing up.
    Only Google search shows up.
    All my speed dials are accessible in the bookmarks but not on the speed dial page.
    I also downloaded older version ‘opera-49-0-2725-64.exe’
    But I get a Blank white screen on it as a start page. I didn’t remove any settings or user data.

    Any solution?

  • VuYeK

    Hi, I noticed that after update to v50 dark icons on bookmarks bar are no longer inversed to be more readable in dark mode. Also hover effect on tabs is much worse than in light mode.
    What do you think about separator option to bookmarks?

  • Kamil

    In this Opera release, the fast dial doesn’t automatically scroll down to right place when pressed go back. Instead it stays on the top of the speed dial.

    @ewamiezejewska:disqus Opera 50.0.2762.58 stable – VPN issue

    Opera free VPN provides these options: Optimal location (default), the Americas, Europe and Asia.

    Unfortunately the option for the “Asia” do not work as it should work.
    When I choose “Asia” location, it connects to a Germany IP adress (so an Europe country and not an Asia country): https://i.imgur.com/2uMWgVw.png

    Optimal location works great: https://i.imgur.com/QbX5rbP.png
    Americas works great: https://i.imgur.com/McD56sZ.png
    Europe works great: https://i.imgur.com/ZNbYHgU.png

    And please increase the bandwidth of Opera’s VPN servers. Previously, when supplied by SurfEasy LLC the bandwidth was much faster (and better)!

      I’m having similar problems. When I try to use the “America’s” location, it connects to a Europe or Asia address. I am using Browsec right now.

  • The “Add Bookmark” entry is still missing in Bookmarks Bar folders.

  • humbertohpc

    It is my main browser since a friend of mine had recommended it. But it fails when I lookk for a new version, at “About” Opera. It appears a message that some error have ocurred. Several times I have tried doing this manner. And I went to Opera Site and downloaded the newest stable version. I ask you: Why this has occurred? All my Desktop PC is OK, cleaned, defragmented, caches, cookies, I never visiti suspicious sites, I have enourmous RAM memory and HD, much much more than I need. Please,, I hope your help.

    Hallo Ewa
    50.0.2762.58 version has been installed automatically.
    But I’m sad to see, that a feature has gone, which I was using very often 🙁
    I’m using Turkish version of Opera.
    There was a function “add page” inside my favorites folders on the main bookmark bar?
    Is this intentionally (if so, it is a bad idea!) or by error?
    Thanks in advance for your answer
    B/R

    P.S.
    I saw a similar question here from some other users…..

    after i updated to the latest version i have some problems with the browser when i open other tabs it freezes and takes a while to respond .it didnt happen before

    Speed Dial is constantly reloading icons. Too bad I can’t downgrade to v49 and wait. Looking to migrate to Chrome…

  • Stryker Enigma

    A few days ago, Opera was crashing instantly a few times, but then this crash happened. All my bookmark favicons reset to default website images and every time I try to use the menu to get into my bookmarks, Opera crashes on the spot. So I have to get into the bookmarks by using a bookmarked page.
    After this crash, the occasional crashes stopped.
    I have over two years worth of bookmarks with old favicons just gone down the drain.
    Please get them back. Fix them.
    I’m using Windows 7.

  • ‘Beat Doctor’

    The VPN is broken. When choosing Americas or Asia I’m ported to France.
    Choosing Europe points to Switzerland, but that’s ok.
