Lately I’m feeling like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day … 🙂

Here’s a fresh update on our developer stream available for you. It contains some improvements and bugfixes.

Power saver mode – phase 2 (some tech talk)
  1. Progressive timer throttling. Timers are throttling a little bit to start with and then increased after a 10s delay. This affects background tabs both with and without power save mode. Without power save mode we throttle to 10s after the delay and with power save mode to 30s.
  2. Timers originating from cross-origin iframes are now throttled in foreground frames. These are throttled to 1s at first and 10s after the delay. This is mostly targeted at ads but might affect other use cases.

    Nice to see two Opera Developer Build 39.0.2248.0 updates in one week !
    Downloading for testing and use now. :))

    Happy to see this regression fixed :
    DNA-54885 Tab Menu overlaps Minimize/Maximize/Close buttons

    • Jur Kis

      Not fixed for my Opera.

  • Cjcr

    Thanks for the new build, but middle click has stopped working for Bookmarks (it worked before 39.0.2245.0 build).

    It should open the page in a background tab. Currently does nothing.

    • Kornelia

      Thanks, confirmed. I’ll report this.

  • Matej Szendi

    Words highlight (bold) in address bar has stopped working while I typing any characters.


    • redfox

      Works fine on Win7/x32.

  • redfox

    Fully satisfied with this build.

  • Nekomajin43

    The addressbar is becoming very crowded by the new features released in the past few weeks. It would be good to make it clean, with some kind of status bar or something. I’m not saying a classic status bar would be the best. Maybe keep the pageAction icons on the right, and create a combined status icon on the left, with a popup containing additional information.

    • RafaellaG

      There’s enough room in the address bar without a search box and on a 16:9 Monitor.^^

      • Nekomajin43

        There is enough room, but too much icons with inconsistent GUI.

  • Fil Day

    Hi! What about fonts? I don’t see DirectWrite Option in flags 🙁

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, it has been removed from the Chromium’s code (see here, and here), and since Opera is based on that code, it’s no longer available, in new builds of Opera. The last Chromium version, which includes it, is 52.0.2718.

      • Fil Day

        Pity… I hope developers will return that option. Or someone will create extension.

        • L33t4opera

          Hi @filday:disqus, @disqus_kYUexyitkp:disqus, if the fonts are blurred, also in the content of the web pages (not only within the browser’s UI), then try to add the command line switch, at the end of the shortcut to the “launcher.exe” file, as below:
          "pathtolauncher.exe" --force-device-scale-factor=1
          (you can see an example for Chrome here).

          If the above switch does not help (or if the issue occurs only in the UI), then instead of it, add the following switch:
          "pathtolauncher.exe" --disable-directwrite-for-ui

          If none of the above work, you can try to disable the DPI virtualization – please find more details here.

          Alternatively, you can try the “Font Rendering Enhancer” extension – to be able to install it in the Opera, you need first install one of the following extensions: the “Extension source viewer“, or the “Download Chrome Extension“.

          The issue can also be caused, by the ClearType feature – you can find out on how to calibrate it, from this article.

          • pureocean

            Dear @L33t4opera,

            Thanks for your reply. I hope everyone benefit from your informations. I didn’t know –disable-directwrite-for-ui. I think, Chromium team removes this flag soon, too..

            I tried all the switchs in lastest Opera version (2248). Unfortunately, none can’t DirectWrite font rendering. Because Chromium authors made DirectWrite permanent in consequence of removed GDI font rendering codes from source. Therefore impossible disable DW.

            I like GDI font rendering. I always use my Windows without CleaType. Why? I don’t like DirectWrite/ClearType. How am I disabled Cleartype?

            REGEdit > HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop > “FontSmoothingType” (DWORD vaule) = 1

            This value actives standart FontSmoothing (that is to say GDI font rendering).

            Finally, screenshots:

            GDI Font Rendering (Opera build 2234):

            DirectWrite Font Rendering (Opera build 2248):

            As is seen, DirectWrite makes anti-aliasing to texts. As to GDI, it don’t use anti-aliasing, only classic font rendering. I like this style. Because only this font rendering don’t hurt my eyes.

            I hope, my meanings become clarified.

            P.S.: I’m sorry my bad English.

      • pureocean

        Dear @Kornelia,

        L33t4opera, I wrote this (found links/sources) after one hours research. And I did mention in here for Opera Developers.

        I had hope from Opera developers. I installed the last Opera dev version. My worst fears came true! Opera removed the GDI font rendering feature, too. Destroy the hopes.

        Unfortunately, Opera developers don’t listen or they don’t want to deal with revert the GDI font rendering codes that removed by Chromium authors.

        So, I had been stuck Opera’s version 39.0.2234(the last version is Chromium-based build 2716 which it GDI font support) until back GDI font rendering support. No hope. No hope…

        I am literally so sorry. :'(

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    The standard settings for WebRTC seem to have changed, but I still don’t understand what it means. Can anybody explain it a little to me?

    • Юлия

      explanation based on my test

      Test here

      Public IP = the one from ISP
      Private = assigned by router (default 192.168.1.XXX)
      Tracking I assume based on Unique Device ID’s

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        Ok, and what is best? What happens if I disable it completely (your test shows FALSE everywhere)?

        • Юлия

          Disable non-proxied UDP setting seems to be the way to go in Opera.

          This is what I get in Fx, Opera, Chrome: https://i.imgur.com/AofloD1.png
          Fx allows to disable WebRTC completely while Chrome offers no control over it. Opera is in between as it allows to block IP detection.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            When I select “Disable non-proxied UDP” in the Opera settings, the test shows me “false” everywhere like in your first (left) image. But my question is, if this has any disadvantages. What can happen?

          • Юлия

            To me it gives the result that is on centre :s Servces that use WebRTC should not work with that setting, I guess. When, if, you find such a service their page should state that WebRTC is disabled and you should enable it. I’ve yet to find such services.

            Only one I can think of is https://file.pizza/ In Fx it tells me that WbRTC is disabled (400: No WebRTC Support. Please use Chrome or Firefox.), in Opera looks like it’s working (haven’t tried, but gives me no errors messages)

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Ok, thank you very much.

          • Very interesting observation here, thanks!

            I’ve tried, it works just fine.
            “Disable non-proxied UDP” setting is checked.
            Does it mean that file.pizza is proxying connection between devices since making STUN negotiation is impossible due to that setting?

            Also, I agree, Opera should definitely make WebRTC disabling possible. It much more useful than stupid things like “don-not-track-me” flags 🙂

            Also, is it possible to follow you somewhere, like twitter or something?

  • Юлия


    Also the installer should provide a checkbox whether I want Opera to run after update or not. And I don’t want it to run automatically after update.

    • iPristy

      Better things to do after update, i wonder what?

    • Tratsing

      Hi Юлия,
      do you have an account in some private messaging system (like Facebook/Telegram)? It would be nice to chat with you. 🙂

  • Erick

    Where is the dropdown button to show the others extensions?

  • Jin

    Dark overlay on the Speed Dial theme… I don’t like it 🙁
    Is there any way to remove the overlay??

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Use or create a theme that doesn’t have it?

    • RafaellaG

      First: The flag #no-theme-overlay has to be enabled (should be per default).

      Extract the persona.ini from the .zip file in …AppDataRoamingOpera SoftwareOpera DeveloperThemes (under Windows; don’t know about Unix or Mac) of the theme you want to show with full brightness. Open it in edit mode. Persona.ini has to be in version 2.

      A how-to to the Persona.ini details (version 2) you can find here: https://dev.opera.com/articles/themes-in-opera-18-and-higher/

      The “Use Overlay = false” isn’t shown in this article, but insert it in the [Start Page] section and save it again in the .zip

      PS. Maybe you have to make some adjustments for version 1 themes if you want to change them.

      @Opera team: Please update the article in above link for “Use Overlay” or provide a new article. Thanks.

  • Laga Mahesa

    Is there anywhere I can follow updates on a particular bug? DNA-51552, to be specific.

    • Tomasz Procków

      Based on email address in that report I assume that you are the reporter 🙂 You can’t view whole work log directly but you can ask for update via email and one from our testers will provide an update for you (via email).

      • Laga Mahesa

        Ah, okay thanks. I’ll probably do that tomorrow. 🙂

  • RafaellaG

    Autoupdate with Opera for Windows x64 – experimental seems to work since previous build (as was posted there 3 days ago)…

    … BUT after todays update I saw that I got the Developer v32 build installed.

    I don’t know, it was already auto-updated the last time to the x32 build or first today.

    Could you please check your auto-update process. Thank you.

    PS. I already manually downloaded and installed x64 build again.^^

    • Leonardo Gomes

      So when you tried to update the x64 build, the 32 bits one was updated instead?

      • RafaellaG

        I had the x64 version installed – at least before the previous update.

        Today after I logged on and some time Opera showed me that there was a new version ready; i had only to reload Opera.

        After some time I discovered that the (at that time) current (newest) build 39.0.2248.0 was a x32 version and not the x64 version I had installed before the previous update.

        And because I had not installed a x32 version but the x64 version before that, the auto-updater must have replaced my x64 version with the x32 version.

        Now I have manually downloaded/installed the x64 version again

        • Tomasz Procków

          As far as I know, we are not providing autoupdate for x64 version, but for sure you should not receive 32 bits version as replacement. Thanks for report, I’ll follow that internally.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I got both this build and the previous one through auto-update. And i only have the x64 version installed.

          • DaZung

            I’m using the 64bit build and was autoupdated correctly to 64 bit. If it’s a bug please do not fix 🙂

          • Tratsing

            My x64 version of Opera was also updated to x64.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Are you sure there was no remnant of an old x32-version anywhere on your computer?

          • RafaellaG

            Yes. Because i don’t install x32-versions anymore 🙂

            … at least not since the versions regularly got an experimental x64 version.
            … and before that I always kept only the AppData folder

            (no DEV Versions parallel; only a DEV and a BETA)

  • Please revert link’s color in address bar. Don’t repeat Google’s joke 😉

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What link color?

  • Since previous developer update I have bug (even on new browser window). Tab menu is in minimize button’s place. There were no problem before. Using Win 7 + Win 10 skinpack. Any ideas?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Changelog says it has been fixed.

      • _artem_

        fixed for me in this build

        • Rick

          Not fixed for me. (Windows 10, original skin) Really annoying

    • Springer

      I also still have this issue;

  • pokemiu

    Thanks for the release.
    I still don’t have the AppDataRoamingOpera SoftwareOpera Developeradblocker_data folder on Win10 32b even after adding a custom web list.
    Is this expected or is it a known bug ?

  • taneli

    Could we have a disable button for the “popup video”-thingie, on some sites there are small .webm’s and what not, since i don’t use the feature, it’s rather annoying to randomly missclick on the icon.

    • Nekomajin43

      Yepp, put a chekbox into the Settings!

    • Setting is not there yet. Till then you can disable it via: opera://flags/#media-detachable-view

  • Yro

    Hi guys.

    Is there a way to install Opera without using the windows temp folder? No matter what option we choose on installation, Opera will always use the wiindows temp folder and in my case, my company does not allow it. If possible would be nice to have a way to install Opera by forcing it to use the user temp folder instead. Is that possible? If so, how can I manage that? thanks in advice.

    Ps.: Im talking about the stable release.

    • Kornelia

      Hi, You can do that two ways. In installation window choose:
      1. Current user, change the profile path and only user temp folder may be used for some files
      2. Standalone installation (USB) – the installer will only copy the files to the installation folder and will otherwise not perform any modification on the system.

      • Yro

        Ill try it right now, the usb way..
        Changing profile path does nothing as Opera continues to use windows temp folder, instead user temp folder, and Opera continues to use svchost to handle system requests. It should use opera own engine or services to handle these requests.

        EDIT.: I tried the usb way and nothing has changed as Opera continues to use svchost and windows temp folder to prepare its files to be populated on the selected folder (in that case, i selected make usb path and changed the folder to another hd partition on another folder).

        Please, consider, atleast, doing as everyone else do, by not making system calls using svchost and by not using windows temp even before install is finished. make it to use the user temp folder (profile pathtemp) and make it to not use svchost.

        Yous security teams knows how to do these changes (in fact theyre easy to do) and they cant disagree with me about what im requesting here as windows temp folder is the (almost) default folder for propagating malwares so any security software or system will lock it for 3rd party softwares. And by allowing svchost to be used by 3rdparty is the same as making windows an open door for any kind of malware, trojan, zero-day and hack on windows kernel level.

        • Yro

          Bug report: DNAWIZ-3245

  • _artem_

    please remove these fugly huge buttons from win 10 skin…….. just wanted to give it a try (disabled it since it was introduced)… i love the colors but these buttons are still huge. leave it all as is.. make font a bit smaller (so my folders and bookmarks on bookmarks bar ARE ON THE PLACES I USED TO HAVE THEM… (or it’s just the distance between the bookmarks on the bar.. but make it the way it is on non win-10 skin) and win-10-skin gonna be perfect. stop using IE crap icons from dead metro style.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Please don’t do it. 🙂 Buttons size is good enough for me.

  • NanoPi

    sometimes when I open a link in a new tab, the tab remains blank and never loads.

    the tab icon is a paper with a folded corner and the title of the tab is “Loading…”

    • NanoPi

      in Opera dev 40.0.2273.0 the page changed from being blank to Page Crashed. this makes things easier.

  • Mat M

    select text, right-click, search opens a new tab
    select text, right-click, go to web address opens in the same tab.

    Why ? Could ” go to web address” opens in a new tab instead ?

    What is the rationale, if any ?


    • redfox

      Yes, I prefer to open it in a new tab too.

    • xirit64

      Select text, hold and drag it to the tab bar to open it in a new tab.

      • Mat M

        If I drag, I loose the benefit of the context menu entry 🙂 But I got the point, though.

  • Luis A. Rosario

    [Graphic BUG] Doesn’t work [#simplified-omenu] switching this flags to disable should show Old Opera menu (Opera) instead of “OMenu”

    • Wando Schneider

      Nope. This flag is related to a duplicate bookmark entry in the Opera Menu.

      • Luis A. Rosario

        You’re right, But I’m sure I used a flag to change Opera Menu to old style instead the actual Omenu.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, as the warning on flags page says, things there may break or disappear at any moment.

          BTW, the flag to change the menu label is/was another one: opera://flags#alternative-main-menu-label

          • Luis A. Rosario

            got it, so is there any posibility to come back?
            BTW I found a suspicious bug @ opera://about=> version info => update status should say “Opera is up to date” or similar but instead it’s show “An error ocurred while trying to update”


          • Leonardo Gomes

            Flags usually don’t come back.

            About the issue, it happens occasionally and there is always someone reporting it.

        • Wando Schneider

          As Leonardo say below, the flag was #alternative-main-menu-label.

  • Tratsing


    I have two questions:
    1) Is this (https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1873095/extension-icons-missing-in-private-mode) problem occuring with others also and ican this be fixed? I have filed a bug report about it also (DNAWIZ-2755).
    2) Is it possible to use ,,Opera Turbo” feature in Private mode? And also during time, when VPN is enabled?

    Best Regards,

    • Leonardo Gomes

      1 is kinda old. There’s no info on if or when it will be fixed.

  • Yro

    Guys at Opera dev team. Please, PLEASE (big please), consider evaluating how opera handles system requests. Opera, today, uses svchost to make some requests and this is a problem on an environment that one of its prioritys are security (as my place at work) and Opera going this road makes impossible for us to allow it to be installed on our network. So, please, consider making Opera do its system requests by the own engine/app, and not by windows svchost. If possible this will make Opera more secure and people will have motivation to trust Opera software these days.. Please, atleast, consider this request. Opera making requests by svchost is a security flaw, and a big problem on enterprise networks.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Hi there! I’ve consulted the security team and they would kindly ask if you could share your concerns via the bug wizard, with details, so that they could directly refer to your concerns. Please attach the bug number here afterwards. Thanks in advance!

      • Yro

        Sorry. Ive posted on the wrong post-reply. Where can I post it? I cant find the proper place to do so. By the way, Opera uses svchost even before its installed on Windows, so its a security bug/problem by Opera side. And thats the problem on my case. The company security team can not allow Opera to be installed on our environment as it uses Windows Temp folder and Windows svchost even before its installed on the system. This is not the default behavior on Google Chrome, Vivaldi, Firefox, etc. Please, consider doing like everybody and like Opera did back to some versions. The secure (and right) way to go is to use the user temp folder (instead Windows Temp) and not use svchost to deal with Opera requests on the system itself.

        • Vux777

          you can write bug report trough wizard (I think Aneta referring to it)

      If you are new to Opera VPN builds, the server IP’s and locations for the VPN have to be downloaded from Opera servers first. I had it blank initially too.

    • João Gonçalves

  • Bali505

    Would it be very difficult to implement the option to get the tab-bar popping in when switching to the top of the screen with the mouse pointer in Full screen mode?

    That’s the only function that I miss in Opera ☺

  • MountainGoat

    On 32 bit linux, after upgrading from 39.0.2226 to 39.0.2248, none of the pages that use flash, such as pandora.com, work anymore. They all say the flash player needs to be updated. This is not possible because google has dropped support for 32 bit linux, so the earlier trick:
    update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree –install
    no longer works.

    This is, of course, a major problem that has happened in earlier versions and then been quickly resolved. It would be good to add as a regression test for 32 bit linux.

    Note that, on the same machine, chromium 50.0.2661.94-1 has no problem playing flash content from the problem pages. The pages also work with Vivaldi, so it seems that those browsers, even though using the same open source base, do not have this problem.

    The only solution was to remove the latest opera-developer and reinstall 39.0.2226.

    Details on the system and updates:
    => uname -a
    Linux berkeley 3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt4-3 (2015-02-03) i686 GNU/Linux

    • Marko Koivuniemi

      Off-topic but is there reason to use 32-bit Linux? (I think I used 64-bit version in my old VP6 dual processor board years ago.) I mainly use now OS X or Windows 10 so sadly my knowledge about Linux is not good today.

      • MountainGoat

        It is a lot of work to convert my existing system to 64 bit and, with PAE (processor address extensions on my cpu, which allow it to use 36 bits to address memory) I can use up to 64G of memory while guaranteeing that no individual process will use more than 4G.

    • Robert McCall

      Does it have Turbo mode turned on? Try with it off. See my comment to alligoodw

      • MountainGoat

        Thanks, Turbo mode is turned off and had this problem with Flash.

        This has happened intermittently with opera-developer. A few times it was fixed by updating pepperflash (no longer an option on 32 bit linux) and other times a new release of opera-developer fixed it.

        It’s an issue when other browsers built on top of the same open source code base, like chromium and vivaldi, never have this issue.

    • Radek Rzepecki

      Why not use the adobe-flashplugin package? it still works on 32bit Linux.

    • Radek Rzepecki

      The problem with pandora has nothing to do with 32 bit linux.
      Other flash sites work fine. I am investigating that at the moment.
      Did you come across the issue on any other website?
      Please make sure you use the adobe-flashplugin package.

      • MountainGoat

        I came across the same problem with telegraph.co.uk

        How do I enable flashplugin-nonfree on opera? This is the only other flash plugin available on debian, is installed on my system, but is quite old and has not worked with many sites even with opera 12.

        Note that opera-developer 39.0.2226.0 works perfectly with pepperflash, so I’m reluctant to go back to an adobe flash plugin that has not been updated in years just to solve this issue; better to stick with this 2226 version of opera-developer.

        This problem has come up a few times before (I’ve commented on some of those) and the following opera-developer release has often fixed it.

        • Radek Rzepecki

          Just uninstall pepperflash and install the flashplugin. Opera will recognise it and use it.

          I am not sure if flashplugin-nonfree is maintained, but the one from canonical partners definitely is. If you’re not on Ubuntu, I guess you will find the package when googling for it.

          As for the problem on telegraph.co.uk, could you please give me a link to a particular site where you found the problem?

          • MountainGoat

            Removing pepperflash is a completely unviable suggestion: google-chrome uses it and is the only browser on my debian linux system that can play netflix and Amazon videos. It doesn’t make sense to disable that capability just to go from opera 39.0.2226 to 39.0.2248.

            Much better question: why did opera 39.0.2226 (installed May 12, 2016) work perfectly while 39.0.2248 doesn’t work with pepperflash anymore? Some change in those 3 weeks seems the culprit.

            Here are some sites that do not work with 39.0.2248, which include 4 major news sites (all work great with 39.0.2226):





          • Radek Rzepecki

            If you have both installed you should be able to disable one in opera:plugins. Try it. The flash plugin from canonical partners is being updated frequently, you should be able to download and install the package. see here:
            You’re right something did change, chromium stopped supporting 32bit Linux.

          • MountainGoat

            No you’re not correct: google-chrome has dropped support for 32 bit linux (almost 6 months ago) but the open source chromium project continues 32 bit linux builds:


            Certainly dropping 32 bit linux did not happen in the last 3 weeks and 3 weeks ago the latest opera-developer worked fine on 32 bit linux. Chrome (google release) and chromium (open source base for chrome) are different projects, as you may know.

            That’s why the latest vivaldi 1.2.490.39-1, installed June 3, has no problem running the sites listed above.

            This problem with flash is specific to the 39.0.2248 release of opera-developer. I will update this if the problem gets fixed in a later release of opera-developer, as has often happened in the past when flash failed to work.

            Disabling / enabling plugins that weren’t needed before is avoiding the problem, not solving it by searching for its root cause.

          • Radek Rzepecki

            Yeah, sorry I meant the pepperflash …

            Chromium blacklists certain versions of Flash, so if you’re not up to date then you wont be able to play it, they do it for security reasons and remember that this is Opera developer with a higher version of Chromium.

            Adobe flash package is frequently updated so there should be no problem with it. Removing no longer supported plugin for 32bit architecture is probably not a bad suggestion though 😉

          • MountainGoat

            I have no problem playing flash with my (expired) google-chrome as well as with the latest vivaldi and chromium browsers, so blacklisted flash in chromium does not seem to be the problem.

            I’ll continue to maintain this problem is specific to opera-developer 39.0.2248, not to the underlying chromium. I have just verified the sites work fine on this version of chromium:
            Version 50.0.2661.94 built on Debian stretch/sid

            There will be later releases of opera-developer and, as has happened before, this problem comes and goes with each release. I’ll post the results for the release after 39.0.2248 here and we’ll see if adding/removing plugins was on the right track or just a distraction from the root cause of this problem.

          • Radek Rzepecki

            If your unsupported pepperflash wont get updated then no, it will not just fix itself 😉 unless chromium decides to whitelist the older version of flash. Once again, please note that current Opera developer has a higher chromium version (52) so pepperflash is probably working fine with older versions, if you try Opera Beta (51) or Stable (50).
            At the moment we do depend on chromiums flash blacklist, but we might do it independently some time soon, at least for Linux.

    How can i hide login synchronization button ?

    • RafaellaG

      If you don’t use the synchronization feature the button hides automatically after 14 days/2 weeks.
      Flag #hide-sync-login-button has to be enabled (should be per default).

    The Problem = Click to Play

    Since this is the developer area, it is probably a good place to share my experience with the Opera browser. Using it (Opera 37) as my default web browser — I love the thing — I’ve encountered a problem with Settings/Websites/Plugins.

    The following three (3) sites will not work if I’ve selected the “Click to play” option:

    http://www.weather.com – it’s videos
    http://www.xfinity.com – their movies and television shows (See note below)
    http://www.pandora.com – will not play music

    Note: http://www.xfinity.com logon page will not load using VPN. I’ve tried it several times and it fails to load. It could be indigenous to my laptop, I’m not sure. If I turn VPN off and reload that page, it loads correctly.

    At any rate, having videos play automatically when one visits a web site is intrusive; I don’t want anything playing unless I’ve subscribed to such behavior. As an avid user of this wonderful browser, we really need “Click to run” defined and polished.

    Kudos to a great web browser. Cheer! 🙂

    • Robert McCall

      On sites having this problem of click to play just going dead and doing nothing, for me the issue was fixed by turning off Turbo mode. I hope that gives them some insight. I have had this issue for a long time and just solved it, even can keep click to play on. Something about how Turbo loads pages might prevent click to play from accessing the video??

      Turbo mode also prevents some sites from accurately determining location, or blocks it totally somehow. For example, a site that works perfect without Turbo, then turn Turbo on, the site says not available in my country.

      • alligoodw

        Opera Turbo is off in my Opera builds (37/39) — or at least its not selected in my menu. Overall, I’m really pleased with the Opera browser, and I look forward to the 38/39 builds that are currently in the works. I’m confident that in due season all the kinks will be ironed out. On a side note, I intend to moved every single member of our family to Opera.

    • BK

      Hi, are you sure this is due to power-saver ?

      • RafaellaG

        I think. Because if it’s off (right of address bar) it’s (back to) normal.

    The sound is turned on after detaching tabs

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Turn off the sound on the tab: http://jpegshare.net/22/41/2241edcce7da35b4eefb6d4e19696cbf.jpg.html
    2. Drag the tab out of the window: http://jpegshare.net/51/e0/51e0c407b9be736e1e817c5e65e5cfde.png.html

    Actual result: The sound is turned on: http://jpegshare.net/94/04/9404bb02308e7599bb9a8b47a8b48926.jpg.html

    Expected result: The sound should be turned off!

  • Dmitriy K.

    Built-in VPN is awesome but it needs an exception list. A list of IPs which should be accessed without VPN. Like private networks.
    For example: You have https://mail.mydomain.com which resolves to Try open an URL. It will fail bcoz there is no access to a private IP from Internet.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I don’t understand you. I think this VPN is not made for constantly connection. I would not do that anyway. I browse in the normal, usual way. Only if there is a page that I can not reach (for example Youtube vs. Gema in Germany) or if I find it really necessary to stay anonymous, then I switch VPN on and later off again.

      • Dmitriy K.

        Well, it depends on how strict in your country censorship is. Right? For me it’s much easier to be permanently connected to the VPN and add few exceptions rather than to connect on demand.

  • R v

    Great update! In regards to the VPN feature; is there Zero Logging or are you logging user data and websites visited? In addition I was wondering what the encryption level is. Many thanks for the feedback! 🙂

    On the site youtube.com when I turn full-screen mode, full screen mode is activated normally, but there is a message from YouTube appears at the bottom right “could not go full screen, here’s a link to the FAQ”
    this link: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6276924

    How turn off this stupid message from youtube? Opera is cheating YouTube that it can not go full screen, but Opera can!

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Not here. How do you open the fullscreen mode? If I follow your link, open https://www.youtube.com/, click on the first video and switch this video to fullscreen mode by clicking on the fullscreen icon in the lower right corner of the video (the little rectangle) Opera opens it in fullscreen mode without any error message. Maybe your problem is caused by an extension?
      Opera x64 (standalone installation)
      HWA switched on

      • led9ru

        I open fullscreen mode as you writed.
        I have many extension, i turn off all of them = problem not disappears. I thought they matter, or the flags.
        I changed a lot of flags, I do not want to experiment, yet will deteriorate. Problem here =

        and what is HWA? i search it in google = H.W.A. is an American all-female hip hop trio, composed of Jazz 🙂

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          No, it’s the hardware acceleration. 🙂 Settings => Browser => Operating system => Use hardware acceleration if available.

          If you change flags you can see it later by selecting “Changed”.

          What you could do is to close Opera, rename the profile folder (just for testing) and reopen Opera. Opera will create a new, virgin profile folder with standard settings. So you can find out if one of your own changings causes the problems. Later you can rename the profile folder back.

    please make password manager a bit smarter… i have many sites as vhosts.

    and these site_{1,2,3} have different passwords but the same login.
    and opera just saves password for my_main_site…
    if i go to site_1 and login with one password…
    then if i go to site_2 opera uses password for site_1

    make it save passwords not by domain but by url. so my_main_site/site_1 is one entry in password manager and my_main_site/site_2 is another entry

  • Somewhere in ancient history the icons in the speed dial page lost the ability to be refreshed. I really liked this feature in Opera but it appears to be gone daddy gone. You should reinstate it. There was a choice when you righ-clicked a shortcut to “reload” it and it’d update the icon which in some cases is based upon the current front page of a website. Take CNN for example. Try that one out and you’ll see what i mean.

    (Windows 10) Trying to open a new instance of Opera (by right clicking on taskbar icon and selecting ‘New Window’) on a different virtual desktop does nothing if there is another Opera window on a different desktop. But if you click the right click and select Opera, a new window opens (like how most other programs work) Could the ‘New Window’ option be adjusted to have the same functionality? I always click the ‘New Window’ by mistake. Thanks
