Yesterday we identified an issue with auto update to Opera 19. There was a risk that modified Speed Dials would be reset to default ones. We’ve fixed it and now you can safely update to the latest Opera version.

    Thanks Blazej, and for all other Opera’s Developers, nice work 🙂

  • What about Opera Link? It still is the feature I really miss!

  • My version 18 got updated yesterday to 19.0.1326.47 when I restarted the browser, speed dial looks as usual. Now I see another update prompt in the bottom Windows 7 task bar, is this obsolete now?

    Forgot to mention that I always get this error message when checking the version number in Opera, although that version is already installed: Version: 19.0.1326.47 – Beim Prüfen auf Updates ist ein Fehler aufgetreten

    • blackcoder

      The newest stable version should now be “19.0.1326.56”. Looks like there is a problem with your install.

    • Vux777

      they published .47 yesterday, and .56 today
      some bug with auto-update was in .47

  • nanana1

    One of the quickest update to a final version release, the code vigilance certainly needs tightening. 🙁

    What About Opera Link? It Still Is The Feature I Really Miss:(

    • blackcoder

      It is not finished yet. They had to “restart” the development of it, because their first solution didn’t worked out as far as i know. Maybe restart is a to drastic word.



  • ga_pechorin

    will you keep with this chrome skin thing much longer or can we expect to get back the best browser ever made again?
    its ridiculous how many things do i miss whenever i decide to give you another chance…

    • By next year.

      • netmain

        when you look at opera 20, I’d say by next decade !
        opera 20 highlights:

        Extensions chrome.downloads API (DNA-13993)……. (Chrome’s)
        Drag tabs onto the bookmarks bar (DNA-12485)
        Confirm exit when using Command–Q (DNA-12338) (Mac only)
        …. etc
        and talking about power users options : hide the google search (ad) bar, and choose the number of thumbnails on the speeddial !!! which was available for everyone in opera 12, and didn’t hear anyone complaining about it.
        and that’s what we will have after 12 weeks ! so yeah.
        The best thing of the Chropera is the support of chrome’s extensions ! and having their own servers (don’t want my data on google’s servers).

        anyway, still using it and loving it, don’t know why !

  • Reinis

    …and Gandalf said: “Dragonfly where are you?”

  • oic

    Is there a way to import speed dial folders to bookmark bar?

    • BK

      “Remove duplicate Tabs open?” – there are extensions for that.

      there is no support to move folders to bookmarks bar, but you can do that with single SD’s after turning on flag opera://flags/#speed-dial-native-dnd

  • AquilaWhite

    please add the option for setting specific options(javascript, flashh, iframe ecc….) for each site 😀

    • Already possible in the settings (except “iframe”).

      • AquilaWhite

        where can i find this?
        is there only a global setting for disable javascript and plugin ……

        • Click the button “Manage exceptions”.

  • rekkoon

    Damn, i was thinking that I know all stupid regressions in new Chropera. Now I see that new Opera don’t have Master Password. OMG, why?

  • nimuchan

    Thank you very much!
    bookmark manager is an better!

  • Tiago

    Opera is getting better… but I still missing Dragonfly. I still use 12.16 most of the day for working, but it crashes me a few times a day and simple closes itself. Sometimes it doesn’t even opens after @ OS X Mavericks.

    I don’t like Chrome dev tools… and I do even like the fact I can modify “source code” and check the results with old Opera – it’s useful sometimes.

    Is any of this going to back to Opera at all?

  • J Mercado

    Opera 19 stable is very good and also begs two questions: how to import bookmarks from legacy, Opera 12 director to “Quick Access” bar / appropriate folder; how to save + export Speed Dial settings.

    • There is an Opera menu option “More tools”, and one of them is “Import Bookmarks” which will actually import the old v12 bookmarks, even if you have uninstalled it long ago. You can even decide which folders and single bookmarks you want to import and enable the Bookmarks bar in the browser settings then.

      Your speed dial thumbnails should have been imported automatically when installing the new version.

  • Kuba – Opera 19 crash… on many sites ( 50% tabs crash other 50% works ok ) Today crashed 5x ( also after clean run )

    Last crash when scrolling on

  • Cawington

    Page display problem.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Seems ok here.

      Do you use any extensions? If so, have you tried with them disabled?

    • blackcoder

      Looks fine here.

  • UMaster 7

    when you reload a tab and try to switch to another one by clicking on it you have to click twice.


  • Piotr Karol Żółtowski

    Master Password to protect passwords, please?

  • IEuser

    Extension installation fails (looks like installation in progress but never finished) when Opera executable is loaded from path where a “directory” on parent path is a junction point (form of folder symbolic links with absolute path).

    • I tried following on Windows 7.

      1. Create junction folder C:symlink (mklink /J C:symlink )
      2. Install Opera 19 as USB install to C:symlink
      3. Install extension

      Repeated above steps for normal installation.

      In both cases installing extensions from worked correctly.

      • IEuser

        My configuration on multiboot system with mixture of Windows Vista and Windows 7 32 and 64 bit is:
        1. real applications on separated multipurpose volume
        2. volume mounted to the file system only as mount point which behaves as junction point to the file system (mountvol )
        3. subfolder with 32-bit applications on the mount point linked to folder structure on same volume as junction point (mklink /J )
        4. selected appliacations linked to the “%ProgramFiles%” on 32-bit systems xor %ProgramFiles(x86)%” on 64-bit systems as junction point

        So in my case the Opera is located at “C:Program FilesOpera Chromium”, where “Opera Chromium” is a junction point to the “D:Shared Apps 32-bitOpera Chromium”, where “Shared Apps 32-bit” is a junction point to the “D:PartitionsStorageShared Apps32-bit” where “Storage” is a mount point to the \?Volume{Volume_GUID}. In that case a installation of the extensions fails but installation of themes not.

    • Managed to reproduce it when launcher.exe is directly in symlinked dir (C:symlinklauncher.exe) interesting issue.

  • I would like speed dials to be fitting my screen and automatically resizing single dials as in Opera 12 to fit the screen. Now I have to scroll whole page up and down to see all of them.

  • icetom

    When I insert a custom picture as speeddial-background, the top of the picture fades to white. Each picture does, I dont like this effect, how can I disable it?

    • Piotr Karol Żółtowski

      There’s no option currently to turn off this shitty effect :/ I hope they implement this option in the feature.

    • Vux777

      the reason for white gradient is so that those 3 buttons at the top have contrast background, otherwise with different themes and backgrounds they will be hardly visible (or look crappy)

      • icetom

        I see but I would not need buttons for Stash or discover (never used).

      • Piotr Karol Żółtowski

        So what do you think about option such as changing the color of these 3 buttons? I think this option will be cool 🙂

        • Vux777

          ummmhhh nope ツ
          I think it’s good enough this way
          ….but that’s just me

      • Nekomajin42

        He asked how to disable, not what is the reason…

  • Wraith

    Googlemaps does not load Street View, this issue was resolved a few versions ago but now is here again in opera 19 stable.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It seems to be working here.

      Any specific locations with this problem?

      • Wraith

        I have problems with every address I tried, when I click to go to street level the map stuck, sometimes I need to refresh the page to make googlemaps work again.

  • Cryio

    And now the wait for Next 20 ensues …

  • AP

    Wow, guys… I installed Opera 17 (or 19) today after switching from 12.x. You managed to dumben the software so much, I am astonished.

    Good job!

    Good… bye.

  • Dark Magician

    This is for Next build, maybe it’s fixed.

    Sometimes when downloading, Opera opens unnecessary empty tab.
    It is annoying, it is there since the start (15), but I just remembered to mention it.


    On this forum page when downloading this file:

    • Vux777

      I’m using script that veggen provided here on Opera forum (in ViolentMonkey)
      It works even on Facebook when new tab is opened for third-party links like this example (link is at the end of post)

      • Dark Magician

        They should still fix it.
        I’m getting more and more annoyed with everything needing extension or other fix/workaround.

        • Vux777

          yea, I agree…
          opening empty tab for every direct file download is annoying, and should not be native behavior.
          Workarounds are just that, workarounds…I would also like for them to fix it

  • João Gonçalves

    Is there a way to block the zoom at 100% level in all pages? So that I cannot accidentally change my zoom with the mouse.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Not that i know.

    • Just open the menu to reset the zoom to your chosen default.

  • Hmm…, I am still waiting an edition for Linux for the next or current Opera release.

  • L33t4opera

    It will be a joke and a tip (point to rethink, to speed up this case) at the same time:
    hmmm, i was running wine also … perhaps i ran it from wine or drank too much wine, either way i can’t recall exactly:) me bad.

    This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?
    But seriously, it’s a little funny and sad at the same time, that some people are so confused, that they couldn’t have their favourite browser for their favourite operating system.

  • szawe

    I came here just to say that I go back to using chrome. This happens for many reasons. One of them is the lack of any consistency in functionality planning: speed dial (although it is a thing I will miss most), stash, bookmarks bar are all useless for far too long time, basic bookmarks functionality is way too fragmented. For too long I can not set custom search engine and the most important of all is that you stopped working on a linux version. I installed Opera 15 with the faith that one day I will be able to use it on all of my systems. I did it partially against myself – using different browsers on different systems is very uncomfortable. Maybe in a year or two I will think again about using opera, but at the current rate of development I’m sceptical. All this is just my personal opinion and personal experience with the new opera, I wonder if there are more users in a similar situation who have already changed to using another browser or will do so in the near future.

  • LoE

    Why has the search language for the built in Wikipedia search engine (w) suddenly changed from English to, in my case, Norwegian? I use English as user interface language both in the browser and the OS. It should be pretty darn obvious I want to use English when searching too, not the language of the location I’m in. Hopefully it is a bug, and not another stupid thing that makes Opera harder to be the choice for web browsing. And yes I know how to make a custom search.

  • UMaster 7

    no chance to use for getting scientific papers. (screenshot: on the login page to every publisher the website is reloaded and doesn’t lead me to e.g.

    This always worked in Opera v18 and also works for v20. Any idea what could cause this issue?

    I’ll use Opera dev for my online library access till it’s fixed or v20 becomes final…


  • Razvan Dragos

    The download manager is still appearing even if the list is empty. After clearing the downloads the download manager should dissapear, but it doesnt. You need to restart the browser that the download manager to be gone. Here is a print:

  • Utkarsh

    Hello everyone,

    I am here to ask for a little help, I don’t know if it is the right place to ask. My Opera doesn’t auto update, I don’t know why and I have been facing this problem with stable, developer and next versions of Opera. I have to download the offline everytime for the new version.

    On About Opera page it says “An error occurred while checking for updates”


    • Vux777

      maybe your firewall is blocking opera_autoupdate.exe?
      there was a problems last week with stable build and auto-update, but don’t think with that kind of msg error

      • Utkarsh

        Thanks for responding back. If the firewall is the main cause then how can I sort it out? I am using ESET smart security.

        • Vux777

          try to follow this steps and in the last one (step 7), choose opera_autoupdate.exe in your Opera installation folder.

          I don’t use ESET and never had so…sry if it doesn’t help

          • Utkarsh

            Thanks again. The ESET page that you mentioned should resolve the issue but it didn’t. Also this time I am providing you with the screenshot of ABOUT page.
            By the way where else should I consider posting the problem?
            Thanks again. Hats off to you! Thanks for help.

          • Vux777

            I also have the same error when my firewall is blocking autoupdate (and I want that ツ ). When I let it through, Opera checks newest version just fine…Ofc. it can be tons of other stuff, but I still think your ESET is main reason for this.
            If you can, try turning off (quit) all ESET tools (fw, AV…) just for a moment and then start Opera to see will it check for update (it should also start faster).
            ZoneAlarm and ESET are not very much in love with Opera. I know for ZA from my own experience, and for ESET from others.
            If error still persist… sry… reinstall maybe?!

          • Utkarsh

            I believe you are right. And yes, ESET interferes with many programs including IDM.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I got that message sometimes but Opera updates sooner or later.

      As said, check your firewall, AV or anything that may be blocking Opera from checking for updates.

      • Utkarsh

        Thanks for responding back Leonardo. I waited for many days to see if Opera would do the auto update but it didn’t. Google Chrome and Firefox do the auto update without any issue. I don’t think firewall is causing the issue, by the way I am using ESET Smart security and I don’t know how should I check if it is really preventing Opera.
        Your further help will be appreciated.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I don’t use ESET or any outgoing firewall so i guess i will not be able to help.

          Try Vux777 tip and/or try to find a way to put the autoupdater on a whitelist.

          • Utkarsh

            No worries. 🙂 But if you come across any other ways to resolve the issue please reply.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            If you disable EST for a while an try to update Opera, does it works?

          • Utkarsh

            No, it does not. 🙂

          • Leonardo Gomes

            So maybe ESET is not the one to blame.

            Do you use any extension in Opera?

          • Utkarsh

            Yes, I use two extensions: Adblockplus and WOT. But disabling them even doesn’t work.

          • Sumit Malwadkar

            Just go to About Opera, and it will automatically update you to latest version.

          • Utkarsh

            Dear Sumit,
            Thanks for giving your attention to my problem. But what you mentioned doesn’t really work? I am wondering if you have some more time to review my topic from the start. Thanks in advance!

  • UMaster 7

    no login saving possible on


  • I just deleted my MyOpera account, if gave me problems since first day, somehow you got to link old bookmarks of an older account to this one so it was always an issue. Now I want to use my Facebook for sync and it seems this stupid account will haunt me forever.

    Explain to me why am I forced to use that account, or how long do I have to wait before it is actually deleted from your servers, I already got rid of it, unless you just lied to me.

  • Kevin Hickey

    I’m running Version 12 and when I check for updates, it says I have the latest version. When I install 19, 12 is still there.

    • Vux777

      12 and 15+ (presto and blink) are two different streams.
      12 will never (probably) update to new Opera

      • Kevin Hickey

        Thanks. It would be nice if they informed people about this.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          They did it.

  • gdv

    I love the steady progress and the regular updates. THANKS!!!

    But I would still like to see each and every post announcing a new release specifically indicate the version number of the release, and each released version number to have its own entry in the cumulative changelog.

    Neither v19.0.1326.47 (presumably released with the Jan. 28, 2014 “Opera 19 is going stable!” blog post) nor v19.0.1326.56 (presumably released with this Jan. 20, 2014 “Opera 19 auto update is back again” blog post) are included in the changelog ( Nor is either specific version number included in the blog post title that announced the release.

    This really makes it confusing and time-consuming for someone who can’t be here every single day to monitor each of the releases and their respective changelogs. Fortunately other posters early in both of the above blog post threads mentioned specific download version numbers (missing from the changelog) that helped to sort it out… …but it’s a PITA to have to sort it out when it could so easily be included in the documentation for EVERY release.

    As previously requested (, it would be very helpful if:

    (1) the version number was included in the title of EACH blog post announcing EVERY new release [e.g., “Opera 19 is going stable! (19.0.1326.47)” and “Opera 19 auto update is back again (19.0.1326.56)”,

    (2) EVERY release was included in the cumulative changelog (including those after a major version goes “Stable”), and

    (3) if the date of each release was included in the changelog next to each release.

  • L33t4opera

    New update: Opera 19.0.1326.59.

  • Juan

    This seems to have some days now, but with the latest 19.0.1326.59 release Opera has gone completely mental.
    I get random crashes even when doing nothing. I use very few tabs at the same time, but Opera 19.0.1326.59 is completely out of itself. I repeat, it crashes doing NOTHING!

    Please, Opera team, don’t take this the wrong way, I appreciate your hard work and all, but please, get on developing the old Opera (12). I know I can still use it, but I need to have another browser because it is so outdated it can’t show every site.
    Opera Next is the worst browser I’ve ever tried. Really, ever. I believe IE5 is more stable.
    I was a big Opera fan, I always said every other browser was crap, because they lacked functionality everywhere. I kept on telling my friends to use Opera, and every single one that tried never went back.
    Nowadays I can’t say that anymore, it would make me look like a retard, going around recommending the worst browser ever.
    Please, bring back the best browser, that you used to make, and ditch this terrible, terrible project.
    I trust the Opera team, and I hope Next will get better, but it just gets worse every time. I think it’s time to give up and keep on developing the good one and throw to the garbage Opera Next, where it belongs.
    Why I don’t use other browser? Because IE is terrible, Chrome is stupid, Firefox is idiotic and Safari is moronic. And because I tried Opera, and until version 12 was the best thing the internet could offer. I can’t settle for less now.
    I hope not to offend anyone with this (my) opinion. And I hope I can still use Opera, but I am seriously considering uninstalling it. The only reason I don’t do that is because the others are garbage as well (even though they may be stable, which Opera is not).

    • Vux777

      I don’t remember when Opera (as app) crashed. In some!!! builds there was repetitive page!! crashing, but those were dev channel builds and that doesn’t happening for couple of months.
      There is a lots of reasons why users should be mad on new Opera, but stability (app crashing) is not one of them.

      • Juan

        Well, I wish you could see last night, I just had my Twitter account open, and it kept restarting itself over and over again.
        Oh, and I wasn’t using the browser either, it was minimized. I was watching a movie in MPC-HC and it kept getting out of full screen because of constant Opera random restarts.
        Build 19.0.1326.59 (latest “stable” available). And I use quotes because this is not even good for an alpha version.
        By the way, I’m running a clean Win7 x64 (installed 1 month ago) and I’m not a rookie user, so I’d know if the problem is from my OS.

        Also, if you read below, you’ll see plenty of crashing reports, although I couldn’t say how their OS’ conditions are, and if it is or it isn’t Opera’s fault. I can say it with my own though.

        Oh, please excuse my english if it is not proper, since it’s not my primary language.

        • Vux777

          I understand you are not a rookie, but many experienced users slips some details/logic that turns out to bothers them.
          In your other post you were mentioning YT problems.
          I have 3y. old comp with mobile net (hsdpa usb stick) and no problems with loading YT pages.
          So my guess is either you Firewall is making those problems, or some extension…. or some malware.
          If you have clean Win install, and clean Opera install (with extensions) those things should’t be happening. Latest Opera Stable, even NEXT and DEV builds are very solid as app’s (lack of features is different subject).
          On my system, Opera is super fast in rendering pages, opening tabs, very responsive etc…. (closing tabs sucks sometimes, it’s delayed, probably because of Blink architecture).
          And nothing special about my system..AMD 3.3 Ghz with 6 Gb ram, win7 x64
          So you should really check other things on your system (Firewall, anti-virus program, maybe some exotic extensions…).
          …and your English is fine, I’m worried about mine…also not my native language, plus during my education I was learning German lang….never English ….
          Probably many guys here when reading my posts think “what an arrogant ass”…and in fact, I just want to be simple, short and direct ツ

          • Juan

            Thanks for your reply, I think your english is fine as well, and I don’t find your posts arrogant, I find them helpful.
            I tried disabling every extension I have (not much though, Adblock and Bookmarks Manager (I hate the fact Opera Next doesn’t have bookmarks anymore).
            Sadly, disabling them doesn’t make a difference. I’m not using third-party firewall or antivirus, just windows built-in firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials as AV. I trust more in myself than in any software in that matter.
            Weird thing is old Opera 12 works fine, and previous Opera 19 built worked really fast and clean (even though I find lots of deficiencies in the soft itself compared to the old Opera 12 as I stated in my first post). I was getting used to it fine, but now I find myself struggling. I guess I’ll keep trying or I’ll wait for a new build.
            Greetings from Argentina!

    • Juan

      Another issue I have, and I detected last night:
      I thought it was completely impossible to get to YouTube with Opera 19.0.1326.59.

      It turns out it is possible, but it takes several minutes for Opera to load YouTube properly. FIrst it will take some time, but load it, but the pointer freezes for a couple of minutes and nothing is functional.
      Then, if you’re patient enough (I wasn’t, I kept closing it) it will work.
      I admit my internet is not the fastest (6 mbps) and my PC is quite old (around 5 years)… but with the previous Opera build I was flying compared to this one (even though I didn’t love it).

      • Leonardo Gomes

        I’ve just tested here and had no problems loading YT page and/or playing videos.

        Check extensions, if the case, AV and any other software that may be interering with Opera.

        • Juan

          Thanks for your input, Leonardo!
          I tried disabling extensions, one by one and all together, but doesn’t make a difference.
          I have the same firewall (Win built-in) and AV config (MS Security Essentials) I had with previous Opera 19 build and I can’t work it out.
          I guess I’ll have to wait until the next build to see what happens. I hope it gets better, I want to keep using Opera.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Do you use any extension? If so, have you tested with it disabled?

      Also check with a clean profile.

      • Juan

        Tried all with no luck, mate.
        Downloading 20.0.1387.30 now to test.

  • Margarida Ascenço

    Well, I give up and came back to the 18 version. Opera is the best browsers but in the last two years there are many problems. In 19 version the pages sometimes don’t open
