  • Gutza G

    Thanks for the Youtube fix!

  • Dark Magician

    It took too long for YT fix, it should have been fixed first in stable. Since you expect this kinds of bugs in beta and dev, I don’t see how you could let this go on for a full month.

    • nanana1

      The YT fix was tested in beta and dev to confirm its finality and once it is established then it is included in the stable, so I’m just happy that it got fixed after all.

      • Dark Magician

        I stopped beta testing Opera, but I’m still baffled how it got trough beta channel unnoticed, or was it ignored and still pushed in stable.

        • nanana1

          This YT bug was not unnoticed and in fact, it was reported in both beta and dev and now it got fixed.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Bugs are always fixed in developer channel and then backported to beta and stable channels.
      It’s because they need to check if the fix is working and did not cause any issues before put it on stable channel.

  • ktxgio

    thanks for new release

  • SteveX

    The bug with mouse pointer still present. When you turn back with mouse gesture the mouse icon doesn’t change shape over links. If you click over blank space then it returns to run correctly.

    • Ricardo J. Barberis

      Confirmed on my system:
      Opera 38.0.2220.41
      Slackware 14.1 (x86_64; KDE)

  • Cobalt

    Pressing again the selected key combination does not hide pop-up window of the extension (like in Chrome)

    Actual result: After pressing again the selected key combination nothing will happens =(

    Expected result: Pop-up window of the extension should hide (like in Chrome)

    An example of such extensions: “Currency Converter”: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/currency-converter/lncdobdbibdgoiohgnflmjajfphcnakg

    • Cobalt

      To access a pop-up window of the “Currency Converter” extension I use the keyboard shortcut Alt+C.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        How does it behave with Opera extensions?

  • Kenny

    Video popup doesn’t work on https://www.1tv.ru/live

    • BAGA

      все работает

  • Cobalt
    • xirit64

      Not a bug, but surely another abuse.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Opera looks better to me.

    • RafaellaG

      Every time you complain about something it’s (more or less) a minor issue.
      And every time you compare it with Chrome.

      When Chrome does all things better, why don’t you use Chrome (or any other browser?

      Show Opera preferable bugs they should correct.
      Do not worry so much about cosmetic fixes, although once in a while it’s ok.^^

      Opera is not and never will be a Chrome Clone (even if they use the same engine)!

      Accept it!

      Pleeeaaase!!! 😉

  • Freddy

    When I close Opera the window flashes black quickly. This has been happening for a while. I’m on Windows 10 Pro x64. It’s annoying and shouldn’t happen. Please look into it.

  • Izer0

    Waw, I see all my icons on my 400 tabs, I do not believe 😎 Last seen on version 35 😎

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Just as a curiosity: Why someone would need to have 400 tabs opened?

      • Sometimes one window might be things to read later or research for something to buy or paper, etc

        I did 175 with Opera (Presto)

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I guess I probably never had more than 20 tabs opened except, maybe, for testing purposes. Well, maybe once or twice but there were a rare exception.

          I really think it’s kinda weird to have such an amount of tabs opened, i would never imagine myself doing it.

          Anyway, thanks for answering.

          • Izer0

            When you do software development, or IT support, 20 tabs is only for one “problem”. If you have 20 – 30 users to support, you may have lot of tabs.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            OK, but wouldn’t be easier to focus in a ‘problem’ and/or user at a time? Isn’t it confusing to have lots of tabs opened?

          • Izer0

            No, it’s not confusing with visible icons. Yes, it’s easier, but not feasible in practice. Sometimes you must hold one work to do something another “important” for another client or user, so it’s not that easy for heavily working people 🙂 That’s all. I am very happy when I finished day with 200 tabs.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            OK, thanks for replying.

        • Spideymang

          Does someone use any extension to manage or move from all number of tabs, something like Vertical tabs? https://addons.opera.com/es-419/extensions/details/vertical-tabs/?display=en

          Or you just use the menu organizer tab from upper right side of the browser??

  • K. K. VinayKumar

    Why “Opera Turbo” won’t work in private mode?

    • Aneta Reluga

      Basically, Turbo uses some intricate redirections to minimize the traffic. Seems logical that people who use private mode want it as private as possible, and don’t want any redirections.

      • K. K. VinayKumar

        Thanks. 🙂 😀

      • Rafael Luik

        Again Opera confusing a “private session” with “online privacy”…

        By this logic private mode should block all cookies. Needless to say users don’t want that.

        • Aneta Reluga

          That’s essentially different because cookies are often needed to keep session info (sometimes you would not even be able to log in without cookies enabled).

  • ParakeetTurd

    I still am having the pdf scrolling issue. I’ve even made a video displaying the issue:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aOLmRUR3X4

    and the pdf in the video for reference is

    http://wj32.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Introduction-to-Smooth-Manifolds.pdf

    The scrollbar does not position correctly with respect to the document location. This is fine on Chrome or Firefox but it has never been working on Opera.

    • Spideymang

      Same issue or behavior here

      • ParakeetTurd

        Thanks for helping confirm the bug 🙂 unfortunately none of the mods or devs have >.> …. sigh

  • Jan Václavík

    do you know that all(stable/beta/dev) off-line installer are “frozen” in some 36. version

    • Aneta Reluga

      This is possible for Windows XP and Vista. Support for these systems stopped with the 36 version.

      • Jan Václavík

        but Opera is still working on XP so that it would be better to we be able to download new versions directly from blog pages instead of for example FTP …

        • Leonardo Gomes

          You shouldn’t be able to install versions above 36 on XP and Vista.

          • At least that Opera developers build and compile the Opera web browser on Visual Studio 2012 and sucessor versions.

  • The translation used options do not work. Opera stable
    default_partner_content.json
    slovari yandex ru
    Does not work.

    Required Opera dev
    translate yandex ru

  • jedy123

    Sorry but I can never get the auto update to work. I click on the relaunch now button only to find it hasn’t updated. Even just quiting Opera and opening again doesn’t update. I have to download the OperaSetup file every time.

    OSX 10.9.5

    • Aneta Reluga

      What kind of account are you using – admin or user? Also, do you press the button immediately after it appears, or do you wait a longer while? Thanks.

  • reiner1302

    please add Switzerland to VPN.
    Thx.

    • mib

      Where i can find VPN setting?

  • Izer0

    I rejoiced prematurely, all icons on tabs gone after next Opera start! Guys, are you able to do something as simple as displaying icons on tabs??? It is horrible to working with 400+ tabs without any visual points 🙁

    • BK

      400+ tabs, that’s kind of achievement 🙂
      sorry for inconvenience. We are looking into optimizations for heavy tabs users.

      • Izer0

        Is must be some stupid problem because Opera is able to show it all directly after update, but do not show it later after next opera restart. After restart, opera show it randomly, eg. from no icons to 10 -20 icons on first tabs when I close some tabs (eg below 400), so it is weird, it is like random generator. Bugfix needed.

  • RafaellaG

    Ups… [deleted]

  • hassanraza

    I am still not able to watch video and gif on twitter using opera.

    • Have an example tweet? Also what OS are you on?

  • Click to play plug ins is not working on http://www.cc.com/video-clips/b30lvm/shorties-watchin–shorties-will-you-be-visiting-a-farm-

    I turned off ad blocker and no extensions are blocking anything, ads play fine then the video won’t not sure if the site has a XSS bug

    OS X 10.11.5

    • Leonardo Gomes

      ‘Clik to play’ seems to have lots of problems. I think it should be reviewed.

      • It worked really well during the Opera Presto engine days, seems click to play breaks a lot when sites have the plug in content under some other content

  • Apis Bull

    Any one keep getting the red flag with get the latest security updates, which just tries to install the same version.38.0.2220.41.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Which OS? And, does the update eventually get through?

      • Apis Bull

        Windows 7 64bit, no it just tried to get me to download the same version.

        • Aneta Reluga

          Can you please turn Opera off, clear both Temp folders and retry?
          If this does not help (hopefully it does), please install the update manually. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

          • WeeZ

            Same problem. Win 10 x64. Reinstall Opera does not help.

          • Apis Bull

            Tried still the same, can’t update it as its updated to the newest version already, so I’m not sure what to update.
            Sorry if that sounds confusing.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            What happens if you run the installer?

          • Apis Bull

            Well, interestingly now its stopped doing it (when I ran the off line installer), but says
            38.0.2220.41 – An error occurred while checking for updates in About Opera. Not a problem for me as I keep an eye on here….but….

  • Daniel

    Hi,

    i’m using Windows 10 Pro x64

    I have 2 issues:

    1. I have a monitor, 2560×1440, and a TV as second screen EXTEND, 1920×1080. The second screen is always connected but it’s disabled from windows. The problem is that when i enable the second screen as extend and opera is in full screen mode the opera window is resized 1-2 pixels smaller on all 4 edges but the windows icons still shows that is full screen… so i need to click restore an maximize to get full screen back. This happens when i disable the second screen too. This has started 2 or 3 versions back i think.

    2. The ‘Save As’ windows shows for .exe files on download, other files do not ask for this. ‘Ask where to save each file before downloading’ is not checked in settings. This has started from the last version i think, did i miss something in the change log about this?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Number 2 is by design. The ‘Save as’ dialog will show up every time a executable file is downloaded.

  • Steven D.

    Love the browser, but it seems that the native ad-blocker is no longer blocking the video ads on youtube. Anyone else experiencing that?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It seems to block most of them here.

  • Video player does not load on http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_isy3byr5/

    OS X 10.11.5

    loaded fine in Safari (Safari got a HTML5 video player)

  • on http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/ghostbusters/ when I go and select the trailer then tell it to load in 1080p it does not load the video

    OS X 10.11.5

  • Video player on http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/the-republican-ticket/ has trouble loading after click for click to play, 2 fails then it worked on the 3rd try

    OS X 10.11.5

  • Broken CSS or broken HTML on http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/ku-klux-act-passed-by-congress

    makes the page hard to read as the text on the left almost goes under the left edge of the browser window

    OS X 10.11.6

    Found out it breaks with resizing the width of the browser window

    The built-in adblock is detected on embedupload.
    Sample: http://www.embedupload.com/?d=7LZOV4JNZK
    Can this be fixed?.. Thanks

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There’s nothing much to be done.

      You can try disabling javascript for that page but it may break the page.

    • Razvan Dragos

      disable ad block for the respective page and reload it.

    bug: when downloading large files, whenever the connection is lost, opera treated the incompleted download as completed

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What do you call a large file? Do you have a couple of examples?

      • oic

        itunes6464.exe from itunes page, its about 163 mb. It doesn’t really matter what size it is, its just noticable on larger files because it takes so long for the file be downloaded. Sometimes I lost connection or connection slow downs and then the download dies. Instead of treating the file as incomplete it treat it as complete

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I’ve just tried here and had no problems downloading it.

          Even larger files download fine here. Maybe something may be interfering?

          • oic

            Did you try cutting your connection or force a slow down of your download speed to almost zero while downloading it. It doesn’t happen to good connections

  • Facebook video player breaks for live videos that have ended, example: https://www.facebook.com/mashable.socialmedia/videos/10157266126565061/?utm_cid=mash-com-Tw-main-link

    There is no prompt to see that it has ended (I see it when opened in Safari)

    OS X 10.11.6

  • Razvan Dragos

    Some youtube clips are not displayed, this happens randomly, not always. It gets a black background. See print: https://s31.postimg.org/vjy7uov8b/youtube.jpg

  • I was unable to enter the Youtube full screen mode. Im glad you fixed it. But sometimes, it crashes in the middle of video. Would you fix it too? Thanks.
