    Thank you team..

  • hhrhhr – no changes.

      It was delayed a bit. Should be up to date now.

    cut and page bookmarks? ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks Marcin, and BTW, it would be also nice, if you can update the md5sums, as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Which md5sums do you want updated and more to the point why? On Mac and Windows the users would know if they had a broken download because the signatures on the packages would get broken. On Linux apt will handle checking the integrity of the package, as there are sums as part of the repository meta data. If you want to read the meta data yourself to see the sums.

          • L33t4opera

            These md5 sums on the ftp servers, which refer to the installers of the latest stable. Sometimes, for the reasons, that concern me, I need to download the files of the full installers.

          • Yes by the full installers are cryptographically signed. You can just check that the signature is intact. Trying to run them would also do this. You don’t need an md5sum.

            P.S. In any case we are not planning on adding back an md5sum.

  • So did you guys even look at the bookmarks color bug?
    Supposed to look like this:
    But looks like this instead:

    • Giorgi Chavchanidze

      It should be fixed in developer stream

      • Cool. Thankyou for the reply.

    Is there a way to automatically disable default_partner_content.json on every upgrade? I have custom search engines and every time I upgrade Opera I hit stupid Yahoo or DuckDuckGo instead of youtube or dictionary.

    • Give this one thousand votes! If they could just let us change the keyword on default engines, that would take care of it.

      I just gave in and made Dictionary ‘di’ and YouTube ‘yt’. Not perfect, but it was better than having to remember to keep a backup of the json file and replacing it after each upgrade.

      • Jay

        Naah, you can just delete it and restart browser. Still – you have to remember about that every time and it’s annoying.

    Fonts are still hard on the eyes, compared to Firefox. I’ve been comparing the two extensively and I’ve noticed the following

    – Fonts are thinner in Opera than they are in FF
    – Fonts look fuzzier, like there’s a shadow or faint line on the edges of the letters
    – The letters have more jagged edges than FF

    I really want to go back to Opera as my full-time browser, but I get headaches if I have to read too much text. I love using Opera and I have for years. As I get older, however, my eyes aren’t what they used to be. The ability to sync links really helps catch up the distance on FF, but if it was a little easier on the eyes, I’d use Opera a lot more often!

    • Jay

      Aren’t you talking about the new anti aliasing on fonts? You can somewhat turn it off via opera://flags and disable DirectWrite. Doesn’t work on the actual browser ui elements tho.

      • Jeff

        Possibly. Though I’ve noticed this for the last few releases, so if this is a really new thing, that’s probably not it. I’ll test out turning the feature off for the time being though, and see if my eyes water any less when reading. At first glance it doesn’t seem to have fixed the problem though.

        • Jay

          You have to restart the browser. Also – please note a weird wording on this feature – you have to enable a “disable DirectWrite”.

          What it does it changes the super smooth DirectWrite AA to a regular system one. It still depends on whatever system you use, what fonts are on the actual webpage and only works on the pages, but I see the difference without resorting to making pre and post screenshots ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Jeff

            I did restart the browser. It told me I had to restart to affect the change.

          • Jeff

            Finding opera://flags/#lcd-text-aa and setting it to disable does seem to help some. I’ll try it out for a few days and see if that’s the problem. Thanks Jay.

    • Jakub Sokol

      Which OS? Could you make some screenshots for comparision?

      • Jeff

        It’s on both Windows 7 and 8. Opera for Vista Linux works fine, though that could be the monitor on my laptop as much as anything. I’ll look into getting screenshots if I can get some time this weekend.

    • bengtl

      Oh, are they changing the font rendering? Jeez. The fonts should be rendered like in the OS. At least it should be an option. The setting is there for a reason.

  • Dima S

    When it comes to design, there two things that would, in my opinion, make the browser more appealing.
    1) There is way too much white color in speed dial. Changing it dark-semi-transparent (just as Add A Site) would make much more sense.
    2) It was probably mentioned in the previous threads, but tabs (or the bookmark bar) are a little (just a little) too big, at least on OSX.

    • Jeff

      Speaking of color change, what about giving use the ability to change the blue color of the tabs menu (unless I just haven’t found that yet)?

    • Lacedaemon

      You mean with experimental startpage enabled right? Isn’t it disabled by default?

      • Dima S

        Yes, that’s right. I’ve probably shouldn’t speak about the things that are not yet enabled by default. At least in ‘Stable’ thread.

    Hi, changelog for latest stable verison says: DNA-35369 [Win] With HiDPI 150% UI looks much too small. Is this still an open problem or do you consider it being fixed?

    Due to visual impariment I run DPI 150% in win7 and with an additional launch script “-alt-high-dpi-setting=110” to thin the huge UI borders but keep text size which have worked ok since version 24 I believe.

    Updating from v. 27 to v.28 the overall text size got a lot smaller even without the launch script, forcing me to rollback and use Opera 27 which is a big inconvenience.

    Do you have any additional info on this problem? Thank you in advance

    • Jakub Sokol

      I think what you observed and used was the bug in question – font size and UI should scale at the same rate with DPI settings.
      If you could provide screenshots we could make sure that we’re on the same page.

      • Guest

        Thank you for replying.
        Seems I made an error describing part of the problem. Using Opera 28 with win 150% dpi the text isn’t small. Sorry for that.

        The main problem for me still exist: using Opera 28 with “alt_high_dpi_110” launch script the UI text becomes a lot smaller than in Opera 27, too small for me to read. Just using windows 150% dpi the UI borders are enourmous.

        Please see link for screenshots:

        If this is the bug fixed, is there any other way I can change the text size/UI borders separetly from each other, or is it in the pipe to be implemented?

        • MartinG

          Just ignore this one ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Jakub Sokol

          Unfortunately, this was the behavior considered bug in DNA-35369.
          For a solution, look in my comment below.

          • Jakub Sokol

            Or, actually, there should be, just by using Windows settings. I’ve just tested on my Windows 8.1 machine and it worked.
            Follow this tutorial to get to the Window Color And Appearance and change “Message Box” font size – it should change font sizes in all the places you want.
            Change takes place only after whole browser restart.

          • MartinG

            Thank you for trying to help but that option doesn’t do the trick here; if I decrease font size I can’t read the text ๐Ÿ™‚

            With high win DPI the UI borders, especially vertical tab borders become unncessesary large in Opera, just Opera, (I don’t have this problem in Chrome for instance).

            I tried working around this by changing the dpi within Opera, but now that solution is closed. I understand the reason for fixing the bug, but here’s a request: Please implement this feature in the future to adjust UI border space.

            With HiDPI I need all the screen space I can get and 0,5-1 cm unnecessary space in the tab bar does make a big difference.

          • Jakub Sokol

            I meant you should set font size for “Message Box” from 9 to e.g. 11 – on my machine it gives about the same effect as your earlier solution.

          • MartinG

            Sure, it does, but then all other UI text in all other Win programs become way to big.

            If I summarise that solution it’ll be: using a dpi launch script to make the UI borders smaller and then up the win font size to compensate for the script making the text too small. It’s not exactly super-slick ๐Ÿ™‚

            Again, I understand that this is considered as a bug, but please implement some kind of UI options for changing text and UI border styles in some way. Most programs have then you know.
            Thanks for you time.

  • Carson Coyote

    I’ve just noticed this, but when I have only one tab open, the color of the tab doesn’t match the rest of the UI.

    It’s not very noticeable, and it doesn’t happen when two or more tabs are opened, but I thought I’d mention it.

  • Opera cpu spike on having the tab sit idle and the CPU usage stays above 7% for 1 tab

    • I am not sure if I can confirm your issue, but what I see is:
      With Ghostery enabled and Flash disabled: 0 % CPU
      With Ghostery disabled and Flash disabled: 0 % CPU
      With Ghostery disabled and Flash enabled: constant CPU-, disk-usage and network traffic.

      CPU usage is pretty low on my system, though (like < 1%, disk-usage 0,1 MB/s and network-traffic arround 0,1 MBit/s most of the time).

      I guess it is periodically loading new content.

  • Eileen Cooper Detloff

    I have three issues with Opera Stable (and I’ve using been using Opera forever it seems)… using Vista O/S….

    1. My ESCAPE key no longer works…. i.e.: a blue block appears on the words and I cannot clear it by using the escape key. I have to use “right click” in an empty space to make the blocking disappear. The escape key works in other programs but not when I am using Opera.
    2. When I click and load my Web Browser i.e.: Opera…. tabs appear that had been closed out. Sometimes I have more than 15 tabs trying to open. They were previously closed. Takes forever.
    3. If I’m typing an email or on a social media… and I hit the letter t… often I get booted out of what I was doing and get advanced to speed dial or something else.

    Any help or comments? Thanks –
