In today’s developer update, you will find the following changes and fixes:

Personal news enhancements

The personal news feature is being intensively developed at the moment. Various ideas are being tested and implemented to make this feature as useful as possible. Currently we’d like you to pay attention at the following highlights:

  • More consistent layout in the list view and Top50:

    Personal News Top50

  • Improved recommendations: we have removed the generic ones in the sidebar and now, show only the relevant ones at the end of a news stream.
  • We removed a slay of dead sources from the catalog and worked on the statistics to ensure you are getting really personalized streams.

    My Sources

Search popup

We are also introducing the search popup, which makes the daily routines easier for everyone. We have been inspired by mobile platforms, where context menus appear without any additional clicks. So, if you select a text, the popup will appear with the most useful functions – search or copy. Of course, you are in control of this feature and you can turn it off in the Browser / User Interface section of settings.

Search/Copy popup

New default theme

The default theme appearing on the start page and internal pages, has also been changed. We hope you like it!

Other changes

There are various changes to VPN functionality – many of these will be transparent to the user. Also, quite a number of Mac fixes has been implemented. For details, please take look at the changelog.

Known issues

  1. Unfortunately, the Windows x64 issue proved to be harder to fix than expected, so we don’t have Win x64 builds again. Sincerest apologies. We are working on that.
  2. Mac users will notice display issues with the page title.
  3. We’re aware that the search/copy popup is not DPI scaled.

    First? 🙂

    • Aneta Reluga

      That’s right 😉

  • iYuzver

    Where the stable version 39?(((

    • Aneta Reluga

      It has to be stabilized just a little bit more. Please be patient.

  • iYuzver

    That is it would be better:
    http://jpegshare.net/f0/d3/f0d31face1bc3eff7eaff1e94cdf2df2.jpg.html

    This is “Selection Search” chrome extensions. Customizable list of search engines.

    I’m still waiting for that it will be possible to disable the list of open tabs and make it a list of closed tabs. 🙁

    • Vux777

      isn’t that already implement in Opera as “search with…” ?

      • Herr Pietrus

        But that extension makes searching faster.
        Although still the best was solution from the old 12 where the las used search engine was remembered…

        Still, that new menu is at least very useful for googling 🙂

  • s fauske

    No x64 again?

    • Aneta Reluga

      Unfortunately not. 🙁

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Aneta, thanks for the new update, but the packages for Linux (at least DEB) seems to be broken (they include 10 files less in comparison to the previous version), and the Opera crashes during the launch – both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

    • Radek Rzepecki

      I am unable to reproduce it. Both autoupdate and manual install worked for me.
      What OS do you have? How did you install the package.
      Does it work at all after another restart?

      • L33t4opera

        Hi Radek, I update it usually manually (on most of the systems), but it seems that I managed to solve the problem by myself – when I start the Opera using new, fresh profile, it launches without a problem, so now, I’m going to check, which of the settings in the old profile causes the crashes.

        Thank you for your reply 😉

        Edit: I have figured out, what causes the issue (at least on Linux), if you disable the opera:flags#media-detachable-view, then it crashes the Opera during the restart, and therefore it looks like a bug.

        • taneli

          Sweet jebus dude, that did it for me! Thanks!
          Now just need an option for that functionality already…

          • Aneta Reluga

            You mean it fixes your crash for 8.1? Looks like a legitimate bug, yes. :/ (the crashing flag that is)

          • taneli

            Yes, for Win8.1×64.

          • L33t4opera

            Hi Aneta, the crash also occurs, if you disable the opera:flags#power-save-mode.

          • L33t4opera

            There’s such option: Settings > Websites > Video pop out > Enable video pop out.

          • taneli

            Ah, it had been added since i last checked, cheers.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Hi Aneta! In your introductory words you are always talking about this version as “Beta”, but in fact it is a developer. What do you mean?

    • Aneta Reluga

      I guess you mean the screenshot, which has been delivered from beta blog note?

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        Oh! That’s one big screenshot. I didn’t see.

  • LoverOfLife

    When you will add Romania in news ?

    • p01

      Any chance you could point us to some quality sources/sites in the various categories* for Romania ?

      *: News, Entertainment, Business, Sport, Motoring, Science, Technology, Lifestyle, Living, Health, Travel, Gaming, Food

  • Oskar

    Hate the search popup on web pages that do that, but that’s just because I use to mark text while reading it sometimes, don’t know why. Glad it is possible to turn it off anyway.

    Not seeing much need at all of the personal news thing either, there’s already too many things taking up time for me on the Internet. Personally I’d prefer more focus on getting a more complete experience while visiting the web pages I want to visit. Making everything faster and less time waiting for pages to load, less time looking for that page I visited the other day on my other device, being able to have a theme that makes the browser take up less space on my 13″ screen etc.

    • Zero Kiryu

      If you hate this feature, it doesn’t mean that everybody hates it. This feature can be turned off in settings.

      • Oskar

        Yeah, tried to be clear with that it was a problem for me specifically and that I was happy it could be turned off. Maybe my comment was unnecessary, sorry for that.

        Also whish my passwords could sync between devices, tried to enable all settings but still doesn’t work.

        • If you go to opera://settings/syncSetup you should be able to check whether you have password sync enabled. Also check out opera://sync-internals and look for any red, or what it is saying about pw sync status.

          • Oskar

            Looked, it is enabled. Also all green in sync-internals. Maybe I don’t find the get password key on Opera on Android.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            There is no password sync in Opera for Android.

  • taneli

    Installed via auto-update, restarted Opera, Crash on starting, the old version won’t work anymore either, fantastic.

    Win8.1×64.

  • MrEasy

    Search popup is ok, what is bad though is that as long as it is showing, the right-click context-manu is not possible unless an action is selected.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Thanks a lot for your suggestion – it has been forwarded further.

      • Mat M

        +1. Using Esc to get to context menu is cumbersome. Thanks for forwarding !

  • Vux777

    many sites have implemented selection popup feature, and now it is in conflict with Operas native feature
    example :
    https://mondaynote.com/chairman-elons-great-leap-forward-68f49ffde372#.xkj40gpk5

    http://prnt.sc/bomt8l

    • Zero Kiryu

      You can turn this feature off in settings

      • Vux777

        I know but…

        • Zero Kiryu

          But…? Actually this is the first website I’ve ever seen with the pop-up feature implemented.

          • Vux777

            all medium blogs, Mashable… use this feature

            but = “if I don’t wan’t to turn it off?”

          • Damian eDameXxX Stępnik

            It’s not that rare as you think.

    • Aneta Reluga

      This is known and being worked on. Thanks!

  • A J S

    hi, i’m in Mac and the VPN is not working. It doesn’t load anything when it’s turned ON. It happens to me since last one or two updates… every now and then it works but i can’t pin out when or why…

    • Aneta Reluga

      Do you mean that after turning the VPN on, the pages are blank and seem to load infinitely? Might be DNA-55557 then, which is being investigated.

  • Nachiketa Ramesh

    Thanks a lot! This is great

  • Zero Kiryu

    Love the new search pop-up! It also would be very nice if it could make a proposition to go to the web address if I select one like this (text, not link): https://s31.postimg.org/y5bx2bb3f/Clipboard02.jpg

    • Aneta Reluga

      Your idea has also been forwarded to the respective team, thanks 🙂

      • Zero Kiryu

        Thanks in advance)

      • Mat M

        +1. I hope the Go to web address will open in a new tab, as does the search feature

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    So far, it looks as if the problems with Facebook videos are gone. Good.
    Now you can start to fix the download page TAB problem.

  • Devocalypse

    Always crashes on startup after updating from the last snapshot. Deleting the new version subfolder did not help. It might have corrupted the user settings files.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, add the switch at the end of the shortcut to the “launcher.exe”, as follows: pathtolauncher.exe" --no-experiments, launch the Opera, and if it works, paste opera:flags#media-detachable-view into the address bar, and press Enter, select “Enabled” or “Default (enabled)” from the drop-down, and close the Opera, remove the switch from the shortcut, launch the Opera again, and see if this helps.

      In case, that you want to turn it off: go to Settings > Websites > Video pop out, and untick the checkbox on the left of “Enable video pop out”.

      • Devocalypse

        Thanks. I’ll try that tomorrow when I get back to my work PC 🙂

      • Devocalypse

        Detachable media view flag was the culprit. Many thanks for your help.

      • Vux777

        opera:flags#media-detachable-view flag is not the only one that is bugged
        I had problems with opera://flags/#power-save-mode

  • mikemanger

    Which one is the new default theme? I previously changed it from the default and can’t find it.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Should be a bluish-toned mountain landscape. However I don’t think it would be applied over a custom theme.

  • Johnny Seven

    Crashing on mine also Win 10 x64…I narrowed my problem down to one or more of the following…(Last session, Local state, Lockfile, Login Data, or Login Data Journal…removing them from my profile allowed latest update to run with everything as it should be…extensions included….this may help someone else.

    I may try to find if it is just one file in particular but at present all seems to be ok.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, you can try the workaround, mentioned here, and see if this helps.

      • Johnny Seven

        Thank You !

  • Nekomajin43

    Is it related to a confirm exit feature? “DNA-55048 [suggestions] Closing suggestions”

    Also, I like to new search popup, but it does not fit to the UI design. And some kind of visual feedback would be good with the Copy option.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It doesn’t seem to be related.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Regarding search popup, it is the first iteration, so any ideas and comments are welcome. Some things are known already, the other are being changed and implemented.

    • Vux777

      Is it related to a confirm exit feature? “DNA-55048 [suggestions] Closing suggestions”

      I doubt
      this is what they call “suggestions” (those tiles when you click on address bar, if enabled)
      opera://flags/#extended-suggestions

  • João Gonçalves

    New build, still no working VPN feature.
    “Connecting” for ever.
    I have a fresh installed Opera.

    • Wando Schneider

      What antivirus do you use?

      • João Gonçalves

        ESET NOD32 Antivirus v9

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          I have also Eset NOD32 and it works perfect here.

          Have you anything changed in the settings => Browser => Network => Proxy settings?

          • João Gonçalves

            At my home with the desktop PC it also works perfectly with the same configuration and antivirus.
            But here on my notebook, VPN does not work. “Connecting” for ever. I’ve uninstalled and cleared my data folder but no luck.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Is your notebook (at work?) behind a proxy?

          • João Gonçalves

            It’s a personal notebook, not behind a proxy.
            I keep it as simple and open as possible. I really don’t know why it happens.

          • SoniC

            Same with me — infinite “Connecting” VPN issue with newest and older builds of Opera.
            Win8.1 x64 +ESET Smart Security (everything unblocked in ESET).

            When I take a look at the network traffic when switching VPN on Opera doesn’t sent nor receive one single packet….

            IF someone from Opera is willing to contact me to investigate – just let me know… English, Polish or German – doesn’t matter.

          • A J S

            same on Mac

          • Aneta Reluga

            High probability that it’s SSL filtering in ESET. I’ll investigate and get back to you.

          • SoniC

            Hello Aneta,
            I have paused each and every module of ESET I could find — issue still persists. Opera is getting stuck at an infinite connecting (and the virtual location is empty / cannot select anything).
            BTW – fajna poduszka 😉

          • Aneta Reluga

            Might be an internet provider issue, a profile issue or a system issue then. Do you have any chance to check the connectivity:
            1) from a standalone installation of the same version with a clean profile?
            2) from another machine connected to the same household network?
            3) from the same machine (if it’s a laptop) connected to an entirely different network?
            BTW, dzięki 😉

          • SoniC

            Hello Aneta,
            tested the following scenarios:
            1) not tested (yet)
            2) same – doesn’t work (tested on two PCs with Win8.1 x64 — one was Laptop – Home Ed. one Home PC was 8.1 Pro)
            3) same – doesn’t work on different network – still infinite connecting loop. Tested through four different networks – my home connection, my company’s connection (different provider), also tested 2x WLAN Hotspot (via two different mobile networks ) – same result on the laptop.

  • Юлия

    You should allow removal of default search engine. Who uses Rambler? Also, I want to modify Google search to use:

    https://www.google.com/search?num=50&newwindow=1&site=&source=hp&q=%s&=&oq=&gs_l=

    Right now it’s using Ukrainian localisation. I want the international with 50 results per page and to open results in new tab (which is what the above link does).

    Also I can’t test this version (no x64 build) but it’s good that I can disable that popup (search/copy). I personally prefer context menu and Ctrl + C

    • L33t4opera

      Hi Юлия, you can try this workaround, to remove all default search engines (except Google). A small drawback of this solution is, that you need to re-do the workaround after each, new update of the Opera.

      Instead of the above, if you want to remove Rambler (this will also remove Yandex), you can try this workaround, and see if it works in your case – it seems, that it doesn’t work for some users.

      • Юлия

        Thank you 🙂 It worked
        Hmm, I just copied the ab_tests.json from install folder to profile folder and renamed it to default_partner_content.json and set it to read only. I wonder if will stay like that 🙂 The overwritten file was something like 250 KB or so, the “new” one is 2 KB.

    Edit: Win8.1×64 (also without extensions).

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Confirmed. Works in Google Chrome and Firefox. Does not work in Opera and Vivaldi.
      W10x64

      • Aneta Reluga

        I need to dig deeper, as the link above works on my copy of Win10. Thanks.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Aneta, I have the same adblocker (uBlock Origin) and Ghostery in all browsers, but I get this result even if I switch all extensions off.

        • taneli

          Well, i did find the culprit, i had “Block 3rd party cookies” checked, when unchecked, it works.
          Sooo, yeah, any way to get around that if i reaaally like to block 3rd party cookies generally? (besides adding an exception to it, since this can happen in many places with embedded videos and i don’t wanna be creating exceptions aaaall the time?).

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Thank you for your feedback and telling us the solution. I have the same problem on one or two pages like my local newspaper. The only thing I could do is to put them into the exceptions. I don’t know any other solution. But fortunately there are very few sites like this.

      • Spencer

        Do you have PPAPI flash installed? That link is working for me in Vivaldi on Windows 7 x64.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Yes, both: PPAPI and NPAPI.

        • taneli

          Atleast for me, it gives the HTML5 embed, which doesn’t work (Twitch’s own HTML5 video works fine.)

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    Can anyone confirm that when you drag tab (accidentally again – I once again repeat my hope to have option to disable drag’n’drop of tabs to outside of window) and try to drag it again to same window Opera crashes. It has happened me twice with this build and never had happened earlier. I’m not sure if this is about the same tab dragged back or is it happening always when tab is dragged to another window. I’m not gonna try every combination because I’m afraid to loose my current session and tabs 😉 (Using OS X 10.11.5)

    • Aneta Reluga

      I tried for quite some time with no result as of yet, but I’ll keep an eye for this.

  • abaddon

    I have recently switched to using Mac at work. And while I find cmd+w shortcut for closing tabs extremely useful, too often it happens that I accidentally press cmd+q which results in quiting the browser. Chrome addressed this inconvenience by introducing an option for user to delay quiting the browser by 1.5 or 2 sec and displaying notification during this time to hold cmd+q to quit. Could something like this be implemented in Opera as well?

    • Paweł Miniewicz

      There is a preference “Hold Command-Q (or press it twice) to quit Opera”

      • abaddon

        Thanks! I looked deeper and found out that you need to enable hidden advanced options using konami code to show this option.

  • iVarun

    Search popup has great potential.
    I’d suggest adding other options to it (from the current Search|Copy), esp Translation. Getting a proper translation extension is a pain and on top of that we are at the mercy of devs who might not update those extensions and don’t always look nice in their solution compared to what Opera could deliver.

    Like the Ad Blocker feature, i think a Translation in-house solution is a much better route. Translation could be termed as part of 2nd (or even 1st) tier extension set for a modern user. It think you guys should test it out.

    And as another user here mentioned, about conflicts and for those who like to select text for reading and just for the heck of it while browsing, Maybe the way its implemented can be done in a novel way (like using transparency, delayed UI animation/transitions effects so that its not jarring, etc etc). This will ensure that the feature will be turned on by more people, relatively speaking.

    • Druszlak

      There is one BIG problem – Opera doesn’t have in-house translator and I guess they can’t use Google Translate or any other translator without buying license or proper agreement.

      Anyways, it would be extremely useful. Fingers crossed. 😉

  • Kamen Minkov

    I had to add opera.exe to Bitdefender’s firewall exclusion list so that it could work again. What happens on the next update when opera.exe’s directory changes? What was changed in Opera to impose that?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nothing, it has been this way since first Chromium based Opera: new build creates a new folder with its files.

      • Kamen Minkov

        Yeah, I know about the folder structure, but this is the first build that required me to mess with the AV in order to be able to browse the web (otherwise Opera acted as if I wasn’t connected to the Internet).

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Interesting, because many people use to complain about this since a long time.

    • mattho1

      same problem on Win10 64b. after update to this build, opera wont start. no error message. i had to disable auto update a rollback to .2273

      • Aneta Reluga

        This might be related to some flags malfunctioning. Can you please apply the solution described here? http://disq.us/p/19q1itb

          With the “–no-experiments” option on the laucher Opera starts. But after changing the enable option on video popout and the removal of the “–no-experiments” the browser don’t start again.

  • Druszlak

    Hey Opera, last closed windows “pinned” in this menu:
    https://i.snag.gy/8mHxOD.jpg

    are really painful. I always assume that last closed tab will be first, therefore last closed window on the first position (even when I closed it long time ago) is a unpleasant surprise. Please move closed windows to the bottom or combine tabs and windows list into one, sorted chronologically.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Thanks, I’ve forwarded your suggestion!

  • vertebranes

    VPN-bugs are still present + not fixed:
    VPN Server Germany 81.7.14.232/241 and 85.195.94.83 (f.e.)
    does not connect at all in normal + in private window (Windows 7 and 8.1)
    in ubuntu 14.04-gnome VPNserver 85.195.94.83 works mostly (= connecting), so does 85.195.76.174 (as an “optimal locat.”)
    ?!?
    this bugs in win, partial linux exists since weeks!

    • A J S

      and mac

    • Aneta Reluga

      And this is an issue only with the German server?

      • vertebranes

        Yes.
        More precise: this appearance/issue (= no connection, only trying to connect, duration ca. 5-10 minutes) appears only with the mentioned german VPN-Server. Tried on Windows 7, 8.1, ubuntu 14.04-gnome.
        The other VPN-server (CAN, NL, SG, US / opt. loc. only with no german) are connecting without problems.

      • vertebranes

        VPN Server Germany with IP 81.7.16.152 still doesn’t connect at all (Win 8.1-64). Server D + as “opt. loc”. What’s going on with this bug?!?

        • Aneta Reluga

          Ok, it is DNA-55557 then. It’s being investigated.

  • oic

    I still don’t understand themes are setup this way. Why does it merge local themes and themes you haven’t downloaded yet together. It should be kept seperate. The only themes that should appear are those you downloaded. If people want other themes, they just have to click a link that say “get other themes online”

  • led9ru

    I try install this 32 bit version on my 64 bit version Opera, result = Opera not start, “AppCrash”. this is impossible?

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      You must delete the old 64 bit version EXCEPT the profil folder. Then you can install the 32 bit version (into the same folder, if you want) and it will open with all your settings from the 64 bit version.

      • led9ru

        Not work for me (install type – on USB).
        +New install rewrite all necessary files, what for “delete files”? ok, wait 64 bit.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          I have also a “standalone installation / USB installation”. My Opera folder is C:Program FilesOpera. Here I see for example (in the Windows Explorer)

          39.0.2248.0
          40.0.2267.0
          Assets
          old_status
          profile
          installation_status
          installer_prefs
          launcher
          launcher.visualelementsmanifest
          pref_default_overrides
          Resources

          Now I simply deleted all folders and files in this directory except the folder “profile”. Then I installed Opera’s new version into the same directory and it worked. You can also first copy the profile folder to another place and after installation copy it back. Only be sure that it is always the same directory.

  • What’s the “New Default Theme”: to me seems the same, under Windows 7

    Color issues:
    When active, Opera top bar is black, with active tab “grey” : https://framapic.org/A88Cb6I0cROI/DTM7haB0GUC8.PNG
    When inactive, color as usual : https://framapic.org/KZxjdyR5MVQj/zLOIF1HhhsJN.PNG

    Also selection in address bar dropdown is white on white:

    win10.x64 with Opera 32b 40.0.2280.0 after a computer restart to be sure.

    • Aneta Reluga

      1) What is the setting in Settings / Browser / User interface section: “Show system color on top bar”?
      2) What happens if you flip that setting?
      Thanks in advance.

      • Mat M

        OK, this was the culprit. I don’t know why it did not work before, though. I fixed my color and it is much better 🙂

    Search popup has some issues.
    Triple clicking text does no longer select more text

    As others has pointed out in this thread, I also like to select text while reading stuff, and the search popup is annoying in this case.

    However…
    I actually liked the way Opera 12 did it. It had something similar, but only on double/triple click.
    This trigger also allows for simple keyboard shortcuts to be available (c for copy etc.), which is what I used it for. I never used my mouse for it.

    • Mat M

      triple click selects whole line on your comment.
      double-click raises the popup with a short delay.
      No issue there, Opera 40.0.2280.0 on win10.x64

    • NanoPi

      a faster triple click can get past the double click popup

      • NoName

        Correct, it depends on how fast you click.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Well, IMO the triple-click timing is well balanced. You do it “normally” – you get more text selected; you do it slower – the pop up appears.

      • NoName

        We are all different. I just commented on my own experience.
        I can always disable it 🙂

  • Kamen Minkov

    The search popup would be a hundred times more useful if it included custom search engines, not just the default one. Just saying.

  • Ad blocker no longer works very well on youtube. Have installed adguard instead for time being.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Any example videos? Here it seems to be working fine.

      • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQD3EjukimI did it despite refreshing page several times. Same behaviour on my other computer at work.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          No ads with this video. Got one yesterday in another one but it’s something that happens kinda rarely, like once or twice on every 100.

          • Yes seems to happen to me randomly too, kind of annoying because it always seems to happen at annoying times!! Well it doesn’t any more because I use Adguard

  • MarkG54321

    on the last x64 windows build, and the keyboard often stops working? Is this a x64 Windows build problem? Should I switch to 32bit?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Hmm, no problems with keyboard in latest x64 build here.

  • Szymon Nowak

    Is it possible to download older versions of Opera developer edition? I’d like to try out one where VPN was still working 🙂

    • L33t4opera

      Hi Szymon, you can download them from here.

      • Szymon Nowak

        Thanks! Just wanted to confirm that in 40.0.2267.0 for Mac VPN still works.

  • musonic

    I’m still having problems getting the VPN to connect. I have uninstalled all previous versions of Opera and installed 40.0.2280.0. The VPN window hangs on connecting and no drop down menu appears for the location list. I am running Mac OS X 10.11.5 and am based in the UK.
    Is there anything on my side that could be preventing this from working as many people seem to be able to use it ok? I have two macs and have the same issue on both. The VPN worked on the first version it was enabled on, but since the version that moved it only to private browsing it has ceased to function.

    • Aneta Reluga

      I already proposed the basic checklist here: http://disq.us/p/19ubnq5
      Also, some antivirus software can block the access – can you please temporarily disable your antivirus (which is it, by the way?) and check if VPN works afterwards? Thanks.

  • ga_pechorin

    i dont know if somebody have reported this already: the search popup disables the text selection below it.
    if you select a short word, you cant select the next or previous, the cursor is an arrow instead of the text cursor.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I have switched it off. Maybe it’s nice for beginners, but I don’t need it.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Yes, it is known and currently the solution in progress…

  • taneli

    Btw. selecting text -> search popup … pops up -> try to drag the selected text -> crash.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Can’t reproduce on Win7 nor Win10. Does it happen on a specific page or in all circumstances?

      • taneli

        On every page i’ve tried so far, Win8.1×64, 32bit installation.

  • modemjunkie

    Yesterday morning the previous build of Developer seemed to be hanging. I closed it and tried to reopen it. I could not. So I opened Stable and downloaded the latest version of Developer. I could not get it to open. I uninstalled my recent installations of Developer, created a new folder for it and made several attempts to install this version. No luck. Any suggestions. Windows 7
    Thanks,
    Len

    • Vux777

      did you changed any of the flags?
      and if you did classic installation, doesn’t matter if you changed installation folder, user data is still read from the same folder
      you need to install standalone version to be completely separated (and fresh) from previous installations

      if you changed some of the flags,
      try running Opera with “–no-experiments” command line shortcut
      simply right click on Opera shortcut if you have it (if not, make one on desktop), choose properties and add to target–no-experiments …add space before it, like this:
      http://prntscr.com/bpkq5u

      in my case, bugged flag was battery saver
      opera://flags/power-save-mode

      but someone else had problems with video popup flag
      flags#media-detachable-view

      so, not sure which one is culprit (maybe both)

      • modemjunkie

        That did it. I’ll play with flags later.
        Thanks.

  • modemjunkie

    To be clear. It is installed, but won’t open.

  • Luis Amaral

    Opera team, because I think it is important for you to know and I hope others will report it as well so that you realize that we are not jut a few but no 64bit version no upgrade for me.
    I only install 64bit versions now.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Did you read the post?

      • Luis Amaral

        Yes I did. And thats why I said with no 64bit updates available I am not updating it either.

  • Gustav Ekner

    Please just remember to add a cursor pointer to the pop-up. (the one you get when you hover over a link)

  • Marcos Jacoby

    Where the win x64 version? Only x64 version for linux distro’s?

    • Aneta Reluga

      There are issues with Winx64 developer and it couldn’t be released just yet.

      • Marcos Jacoby

        Thanks! Hoping for the best!

  • vertebranes

    and again + again + again:
    VPn doesn’t work correctly:
    german server 146.0.229.30 won’t connect – no connection after (tried) 15 minutes!! (ubuntu-gnome 14.04)
    What’s the sense of it opera? Are you not interested in fixing those bugs? Or already in holiday?
    dev-Version 40.0.2267.0 (21-Jun-2016) doesn’t show this behaviour, VPN is functional on all servers, same operating system.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Your comment is very unpolite! If you don’t like the developer version and it’s possible errors, then go and use the stable version. It’s also free to use for you.

      • vertebranes

        your “comment” is irrelevant. If u have difficulties in understanding try again. And again. And again…

  • reiner1302

    Strange things continue to happen on my two computers (which have with the exact same configuration: Opera developer 32 & 64 bit installed – O64bit default). On my desktop, O64bit continues to update to the latest version (i.e. the latest 32bit version). On my laptop things are normal (O64bit not updating – O32bit updating)!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe you have installed Opera 32 bits on top of Opera 64 bits by chance?

      If you run the 64 bits installer and then run the 32 bits one, there is a high chance that you are just overwriting the 64 bits installation.

      It’s because the installer use the latest install path that was used for the 64 bits version.

      • tarkus

        How can somebody tell which Opera version is running? I’m starting Opera from C:Program FilesOpera developer. In the same directory I have a folder named 40.0.2280.0 (latest). The version I’m running (which is supposed to be 64 bit) features the search popup. So you say I’m running the 32 bit Opera installed in a folder meant to be for 64 bit?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Check in Menu > About Opera.

          If you see ‘(WoW64)’ then you are running the 32 bits version.

          • tarkus

            Thanks for the response! If what you say is accurate, then I’m indeed running O32 bit from an O64 bit folder. I cannot imagine how it happened, since I didn’t do anything except pressing ‘accept’ to any Opera installation question. The updates are installed automatically, I don’t interfere with those! So, maybe it’s a bug. As it is now, both 32 bit & 64 bit installations have the same (up to date) version builds in their respective folders!

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Did you read my other comment? There i said how probably it may be happened.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          There is no x64 build for 40.0.2280.0 so you are running the 32 bits for sure.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          ‘Program Files’ and ‘Program Files (x86)’ are merely informative so Windows 64 bits users can separate 64 and 32 bits programs.
          However, there is nothing preventing a 32 bits program to be installed under ‘Program Files’ or a 64 bits one in ‘Program Files (x86)’ since they will work anyway.

          And usually you don’t install both versions of the same program.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    I was happy too early. There are still problems with videos in Facebook. If I click an embedded videoclip in Facebook, it starts playing (still in the page), but after around 1 minute the video part stops while the sound is going on. After some seconds the video “wrinkles” on the screen and then goes on playing, but now picture and sound are no longer synchronous. The sound is finished before the visible part is. Sometimes the whole videoclip simply stops playing before the end is reached.
    If I click the video again and it now opens in a pop-up, the videoclip is played completely without any fault.
    Maybe you can try it out here, but I can not guarantee that it works the same way:

  • Björn Löfman

    Since a couple of versions back I can no longer “go back” with the backspace key. Is this a change in Opera or something else? I have noticed it on two computers so I figure it is in Opera. I really miss this feature.

  • A. R.

    When is TAB STACKING coming back? V 1.2 already has it.

    VPN isn’t quite working – address-search bar takes to country specific http://www.google.XX NOT google.com or google.com/ncr.

    Even without VPN, address-search bar should take to google.com if google.com/ncr applied.

    Along with tab stacking I request improvements to private browsing, ability to somehow save sessions – that would be private and protected, or perhaps private-protected bookmarks/speed dial folder. Hmmm.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      We don’t even know if tab stack will return.

  • Hylian Ticipated
