Hi,

Today we are releasing the weekly developer update. We are wrapping up O41 dev cycle, focusing on quality for newly developed features. You can expect beta 41 release next or following week.

Read on!

Personal news

This week we concentrated mostly on stuff that’s under the hood. That means bug fixes and improvements, mostly in the areas of web feeds handling. However there’s one visible change for users – little newspaper icon would appear in the address field if web feeds are detected.

screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-09-33-45

Click on a feed and it opens in personal news where you can use option to subscribe. Please note that this is early stage of that feature, so it’s not polished. In case you’d like to keep your address field clean, you can turn it off in settings (Browser | User interface | Show available news feeds). We’re eager to hear your feedback.

Opera Portable installer

It’s a new version of the Opera Network Installer, with the user interface better suited for portable installations.
The portable installer provides the stand-alone version selected by default (no need to dive into the Options section), detects portable drives automatically and suggests installation to these devices by default.

Portable Opera Installer

The installer is available for download here. Please try it out and let us know in the comments if it works as expected!

Windows x64 build

Finally! After a longer break, we are able to deliver the 64-bit version of the Windows build. We really hope it meets your expectations, because we are planning to release this version in 41 Stable!

Known issues

Autoupdate for Windows 64-bit does not work at the moment – we are trying to fix it as soon as possible. For now, please download the manual installer if you are eager to get the newer x64 build earlier.

    Is the slowness is loading Facebook fixed?

  • João Gonçalves

    Is the slowness in loading Facebook and other pages fixed?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I’m not facing any slowness on Facebook or in most other pages here, but i also wasn’t in previous builds.

    • Cjcr

      Nope. Is still doing that. No problem with Vivaldi.

      • João Gonçalves

        It’s true. Still slow as a snail. After some minutes open, Facebook only shows one post. I have to hit reload or close and open Opera to have speed again.
        This last builds are so, so bad.

      • Marko Koivuniemi

        I can confirm it too. Facebook messages doesn’t even load older messages and recent Vivaldo-version load them very fast. (Macbook Pro OS X 10.11)

    • João Gonçalves

      I must admit is better, much more faster than previous build, but it’s still some noticeable lag.

    • x a

      I also encounter extrem delays on TTFB with this and the latest build. Something is definitely not right in higher level networking code.

      I have these delays in Opera for Win10/64bit and Opera under Linux Mint and totally different networks, internet access gateways…

      • João Gonçalves

        True, true. After some hours using it, this build is with exactly the same slowness as previous builds. Totally unusable.
        They need to fix this as soon as possible.
        This is the very first time I have second thoughts in using a developer build and change to final or beta builds.

    • Cjcr

      I think this also happens in some other pages as well.

  • Alex Wazovskiy

    Any info about DNAWIZ-5170?

  • iYuzver

    Make notice of the new personal news.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Usually stable versions aren’t released on Mondays.

  • Emanuele

    1. Why you try so hardly to take distance from the rock solid and well known technology named “Feed” ? What was the problem in using the standardized feed icon? This time I’m genuinely curious.

    2. In the Known issues you should specify that passwords will not be accessibile everywhere using the portable installati in.

    • Nekomajin43

      +1 for the first!

      • Re 1: Replied up in thread.

  • NoName

    Old URL bar bug, that bugs me a lot:

    1. Enter text in URL bar
    2. Quickly press down to the result that appears.
    3. Press enter…

    Between step 2 and 3, Opera can resets the selection, so you go to the wrong site.
    This depends on your timing. It happens if you are somewhat fast.

    • Mikolaj Boc

      You’re right, that bugs me too. I’ll fix this.

      • NoName

        Thanks a lot!

        Sometimes I miss the old single-threaded days where everything was executed in order 🙂

        • Ari

          LOL, me too 🙂

      • Ari

        This was reported on 40 release candidate too and should be tracked on DNA-57071

  • Paweł

    Thanks for another update! New feature reminds me of some extension I use ( https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/rss-detector/ ).

    Hmm, recently I noticed a bit problematic behavior…
    Reproduction steps:
    1. I start Opera and do some stuff (30 tabs+).
    2. I close Opera.
    3. I momentarily reopen Opera (previous session aka quick restart).

    What happens:
    1. Sometimes Opera displays message it can’t access profile.
    2. I loose most of or all cookies (cookie monster is sad).
    3. Some tab/extension icons are missing until I restart Opera again.
    4. Sometimes I’m loosing all/some tabs.
    // most likely new Opera session don’t wait for previous session processes to quit / free/unlock file handles resulting in parts of profile being corrupted and rebuilt with default values – my first guess (critical section?).

    What should happen:
    Opera should start without any problems resuming previous session/contents.

    Sometimes I restart Opera to clear up some memory to prevent swapping… 64bits multi process browsers tends to use a lot of memory when more than 30 tabs are open with some extensions running in background.

    • NoName

      I always wait at least a few seconds to re-open, just because of this (in general, not because of this specific issue).
      But yea, it should check for this.

      • Paweł

        Me too… but sometimes I’m in a hurry and forget… and sometimes few seconds is not enough if I open 50+ tabs 🙂

    • That’s true. You will not need that extension if you’re after such a functionality. But still the choice is yours, so you can decide to turn it off and use dedicated extension.

      • Paweł

        For now I’ll use both – Opera’s integrated RSS viewer is nice and shiny (for some pages)… but each entry takes quite huge amount of space while Smart RSS ( https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/smart-rss/ ) integrated with that extension is easier to read and manage (folders, search grouping entries per date or source, marking as read/unread, manual update, notifications of news) 🙂

        • Glad you like it and yes it works much nicer if there’s rich content in the feed (image and some text). This is what it has been optimised for. Please mind that personal news are not meant to be replacement for feature-full extensions. Smart RSS extension is pretty sweet by the way 🙂

  • GF-REX

    Feeds! My most-wanted feature is finally getting fleshed out. 😀 I still keep a copy of Opera 12 around for that feed icon because it speeds up testing the feeds when I’m creating sites for our clients. That and the website “Info” panel which lets me check meta tags and such without digging through the source code.

  • Enoch Powell’s England

    I am a Mac user and need to use the most secure Browser with the least impact on memory. Where does Opera stand on these two questions.

    • Юлия

      Any up to date browser that comes from a respectable brand should be as secure as it can be. Don’t take it as it being bulletproof, security issues are found on a daily basis (in general), most of which kept away from public (for good reasons) until patched, as soon as developers can do it, and usually they’re a high priority.

      Security does not mean privacy/anonimity though, for that you have Tor.

      Memory usage depends on open tabs, their content, extensions, etc.. Chromium browsers don’t tend to be too mercy with the RAM though.

  • Muad Dib

    Thanks a lot for an x64 build! Finally got an update.

    • BK

      🙂 AU is coming soon too.

  • Nekomajin43

    Please, use the de facto standard RSS icon in the address field! It is only my opinion, that the news paper icon looks silly anywhere on the GUI, but new users won’t know what that thing does in the address bar.

    EDIT
    And also use different color for the sites I am already subcribed, like you do with the bookmark icon.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Regarding your suggestion about the standard RSS icon – personally I’m not sure, as this is de facto not a full-featured RSS. Anyway, I’ll forward both your suggestions to the team.

      • Nekomajin43

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feed_icon

        EDIT
        Pay attention to the second last paragraph. 🙂

        • Aneta Reluga

          I know the icon. 🙂 But anyway, as I said I’ll try to get someone to address the rationale for currently using the newspaper icon (and maybe to agree with your opinion in the future).

          • Herr Pietrus

            What about a newspaper with RSS feed logo inside it? 🙂

          • Lots of stuff to put into little icon. But we had weirder ideas before. We might try it out.

    • Hi. This is just a preview of the feature, so you can’t expect anything to be final about it 🙂 Icon, colors. We wanted to test functionality. If we decide icon is to be changed that’s gonna be a quick fix. Why newspaper at all? Well web feeds are things for slightly more advanced users. We’d like to make it a bit easier and accessible for more users. You click the newspaper in the url bar, then in the nav bar to read it later. Sounds like a logical thing to do. But this is what developer is for, try out things with more users and get feedback.

      • Nekomajin43

        I think it would be good somehow to distinguish between sources added by Opera and the users. It is good that they share a common place, but personally, I’d like to know what was added by me. (I will even subscribe to the sources added by you via RSS, if it will be possible. I have this thing against preselected content. Sorry about that.)

        On the other hand, if I would be a user switching to Opera for the first time, I might not know anything about the news reader feature at all. But I would definitely recognize an RSS icon in the address bar.
        The news paper is fine as an icon for the internal page. But the sources on the webpages are feeds, and there is a well known icon for that for years. I don’t think you should revolutionalize that.

        Finally, I know it’s just a preview of the feature, but you have a habit to introduce stuff and then leave them unfinished with small missing or incorrect pieces. 🙂

        • In section “my sources” nothing is added by Opera. Yes there are suggestions, but it’s up to user to pick things that will be included in that section. In the early version user had somewhat limited choose (it was closed catalog). In the newer versions thanks to web feeds, you can add sites even from outside the catalog.

          We don’t want to mark sources from outside the catalog in any way as it should be consistent reading it experience. The technical aspects should remain hidden for user. However web feeds can’t provide us with that much information so they will not include reading time. That’s one tip how to spot them (note: sometimes reading time is not available for sources from catalog either).

          As for the icon in address bar, it’s recognisable but those familiar with RSS. For others it’s just an icon. Nevertheless that one is not settled yet 🙂

          Missing bits? Could you elaborate a bit?

          • Nekomajin43

            Well, you could change the newspaper icon everywhere to the RSS icon. 🙂
            Jokes aside, My problem with the newspaper icon is it doesn’t fit well into the GUI. It is too sophisticated comparing to the other icons on the navbar. And I understand why you’ve chosen that, but I really think it can be meaningless to new users. The RSS icon might be recognized only a few, but I’m sure it’s still more than the newspaper.

            Regarding the missing pieces, here are a few:
            – The sidebar has visual bug. They were reported by me and others months ago. The sidebar API also misses a lot of useful features. Being able to autosize the panel to fit it’s content, for example.
            – We still can’t see more than 10 closed tabs in the tab menu. Also, we can’t turn off the opened tabs section.
            – Still no custom tile size in the speed dial.
            – We can’t remove/rearrage buttons on the toolbar.
            – The pin and mute tab items are below each other in the tab’s context menu. The two most used item from the menu. It is pretty easy to misclick. You don’t use a separator or an icon. (Not to mention, that in hungarian, the “tab” word comes first, so the two lines begin with the same word.)
            – Still no general confirm exit option. For one thing sure, it is easy to implement.
            – There is an IMHO nice monochrome GUI for the internal pages, with a big, ugly semi-transparent stripe in it. Yes it is the navbar.
            – We still can’t properly order the items in the bookmarks manager. By name, added date, visited date.
            – In the hungarian translation, there are gibberish strings for years now.

            Should I continue? I really don’t want to be rude, don’t get me wrong, but you left every major feature unpolished since the engine switch. And this is very disappointing.

          • Fate of the icon is not decided yet. Those are interesting points and we’ll take them into consideration when thinking about the final one.

            I must admit that’s a pretty long list, but it clearly shows that you’re a truly power user! No worries, I asked for the list. I don’t consider you rude. I can’t comment on the aesthetics because everybody has own preferences, but some points are very concrete. I’ll pass that internally. Thanks.

          • Nekomajin43

            Thanks!

    • As for your EDIT… noted 🙂

      Also, please let us know if you encounter some bugs, this is what we’re primarily interested in.

      • Nekomajin43

        For the detection, please use the URL of the feed, not of the page. A site may offer different feeds on its subpages.

  • Юлия

    x64 O.O
    I’m on cr.p mobile internet right now, but will try to download it nonetheless.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    The same appearance like in the last developer: A page loads only (starts loading), when I click (open) the TAB. So it needs more time to cycle through all tabs after restarting Opera. The last betas didn’t have this problem.
    W10x64
    Opera x64

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You mean when you start Opera with some tabs opened? or do you mean that when you open a tab on the background it only starts loading when you go to that page?

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        What I mean:
        I start Opera, 38 tabs are (always) opened. I wait, until Opera is fully loaded, that means, that all favicons on the tabs are visible.
        Now I start cycling through all tabs, from left to right or from right to left. I use the shortcuts “1” and “2” for that.
        Each tab first shows a blank page and starts loading after I have selected and opened it.
        In the old versions and in Opera beta the content is already there and visible, when I open the tab.
        The next time, when Opera is alreay open and I cycle again through the same tabs, the content is already there.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I’ve tried with just a few tabs opened and couldn’t reproduce it.

        • x a

          That’s what delayed loading is all about, isn’t ist?

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Ok, thank you for this hint. What a luck I can switch it off.

          • x a

            You’re welcome.

            For my personal habits, the new delayed-loading implementation, that loads up to 10 tabs adjacent to the active tab, ist less suitable than the previous (opera://flag based) one, that had been there for years. I like the fact, only tabs I activate load each session start.

          • cicciazzo

            is is possible to disable this new tab behaviour using opera flags? I too like the tabs to be loaded only when clicked on! it is fundamental to save bandwidth on metered connections… I hate chrome that loads always all the tabs, and wastes lots of data!

  • Dark Magician

    Will you auto upgrade to 64-bit on supported systems when it hits Stable? I’m guessing no. And when you manually install 64-bit will it delete 32-bit and keep user profile and all the data?

    • Wando Schneider

      I can’t see a reason to not autoupdate when it hits stable. Nope, it’ll not delete the 32bit and yes, both share the same profile.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I don’t think that 32 bits builds will be auto-updated to 64 bits ones if this is what you are asking.
      I guess it may not make much sense.

      Unless they change something, both 32 and 64 bits builds share the same profile.

  • Fil Day

    Do you have in plan to add “DisebleDirectWrite” flag?

  • Thomas Sawyer

    Weird bug in the latest versions (both dev and stable). When I perform a google search with a clear cache (private mode), some language options are not clickable, unless you change the user agent (or zoom in a lot). Can anyone confirm this?
    https://s3.postimg.org/40e4r2ur7/opera_lang_options_bug.png

  • Keilin Bickar

    When you scroll now on some pages, it continues going the if you switch directions. e.g. you’re scrolling down and switch to go up, it scrolls down one more click before going up

  • Kirby green

    As I posted on the last developer version update article, the search pop up is invisible when I select the text. It seems only invisible so I can search or copy when I click above the selected text. (Win 10 Education x64, Opera developer for Windows)

  • Kirby green

    I’m using Auto Copy extension that auto copy the selected text.
    So I would be happy if I can show only the search button in the search pop up feature.

  • Herr Pietrus

    Chinese strikes! Suggestion links under the search box on the speed dial, suggested RSS sources even inside my own source view… What next? Advert like in Opera 7? Perhaps you’ll offer at least paid ad-free version? I like your browser still, perhaps I’d pay for it…

    • You can turn off suggested searches if you don’t like them.

      • Herr Pietrus

        Edit: Och, my fault! Indeed, I see that we can disable it. 🙂
        Showing popular searches isn’t so bad, but search box is so huge… with popular searches it’s even bigger 🙂

        • No worries 🙂 That the thing behind settings, things get more complicated. Suggested searches are not bad and you don’t need to click on. It’s interesting to take a sneak peek what’s happening. I learnt about a couple of things this way.

  • yigido

    I only interested in the 64bit new. Opera 41 x64 Stable sounds great.
    You should ask users who is on 64bit OS but using Opera 32bit.
    They may want to use 64bit Opera. What can you do about this?
    Any idea?

    • BK

      Priority one is to deliver this version to stable
      Then we can consider promoting an upgrade. Most likely we will leave it to users though.

  • VfBFan

    When will the custom search engines be sorted in alphabetical order (context menu)? 🙂

    • Stanislav Stratil

      Never. From what I can tell… there is a zero effort put into custom search engine feature. It took them over 1 year, to add icons.

  • yigido

    What Opera thinks about it?
    Chrome 56 to Mark Some HTTP Pages as insecure.
    http://blog.chromium.org/2016/09/moving-towards-more-secure-web.html

    Will you do an update for this? I like HTTPS sites while they are forced.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      If it’s a Chromium change then I guess Opera and other Chromium based browsers may have it too.

      • jho

        Maybe they can hide it or they decide to show it too. Although this is quite misleading.

  • x a

    I use a peer loaded (via CRX – Extension source viewer) Hangouts extension; lately, Google replaced their extension and teased the replacement with a link in their previous extension.

    Clicking on that link, that evidently opens the page of the Google-Extension as well as uninstalls the running extension. And Opera’s Hangouts extension popped up window (the one showing the teas link) crashes with an “out of memory” error page.

    • Unfortunately we don’t have access to their old extension so have no way to even try reproducing this issue.

  • reiner1302

    I don’t know why you spend so much time into Personal News/ RSS. I can have personal news on sites like Google News or MSN. I use an external RSS reader with notification for new feeds. And I can read the full article without using any browser!!! That’s it!

    • Some people enjoy possibility to install different software, customize it, improve it with extensions others just want a single piece with important things built-in. Even if that means they will not be as powerful as dedicated software. It’s a big world and both approaches will find happy users.

    • jho

      Because it was one of the most requested features here! For me the Smart RSS extension is enough.

  • oic

    why hasn’t the themes page been fixed yet. Its been unusable for months now

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What themes page?

      • oic

        opera://themes is gone and what we’re using now is not very user friendly. All themes are shown on a single row scroll and you can’t tell which have been downloaded or not. Internet themes (on opera servers) and Local themes (ones you have downloaded on my pc) seem to be merged together in a single row. Also some of my downloaded themes goes missing from the single row after downloading lots of them

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I don’t think it will change.

          • BK

            Correct. opera:themes are not to be reintroduced.

          • Nekomajin43

            You should at least give us a proper theme selector. The missing theme builder is one thing, but this carousel stuff is difficult to use with many themes.

  • oic

    bug: opera ad blocker doesn’t remove the grey column on the right side of the page when it remove the ads in yahoo mail. The grey bar is removed in ublock and adguard

    • Kornelia

      I checked this on Win 7, Win 10 and OS X. All looks clean, side panel ads are removed. What’s your operating system? There must be something else triggering this.

      • oic

        Windows 10 64 bit

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    VPN not available this morning?

  • Tratsing

    After upgrading to the latest Developer build, the context-sensitive menu items of Opera icon in taskbar are changed their tiny icons and clicking on them has no effect. For example, clicking on ,,New tab” doesn’t open a new tab, ,,New window” doesn’t open a new window, ,,New private window” doesn’t open a new private window.” I checked from Task Manager and there is also no activity regarding Opera. But clicking on Opera icon in taskbar opens browser. What to do?

    • Aneta Reluga

      I am unable to reproduce your issue, so I need more details please:
      1) what is your OS?
      2) are you trying to open items by right-clicking on the Opera developer taskbar icon?
      3) is Opera dev running or not? also, is there any difference (I mean, does it not work for you in both cases)?

      • Tratsing

        1) Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
        2) Yes, I’m trying to open items by right-clicking on the Opera developer icon on the Windows taskbar.
        3) Opera dev was not running and it does not work for me in both cases.

        • Tratsing

          After restarting my pc, now all these little usual icons are back and I can open items by right-clicking on the Opera developer icon on the Windows taskbar. Maybe, that was a temporary bug that is related to update process.

      • Tratsing

        My problem was fixed by updating Developer version to newest build.

  • Footman

    google search suggestion in adressbar do not work anymore. how is it even possible to break it?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It seems to be working here.

      • Same here.

      • daniellz

        w10, O x32 all fine

    • BK

      Check your options configuration. You can easily turn it off in Privacy section (first option).

    • Kirby green

      I have a similar issue. When I type in to address bar, the search suggestion doesn’t show up. But when I click below the address bar where the search suggestion supposed to be, it jumps to the suggested page.
      Is your problem same as mine?

  • beBoss

    I dont know why but with this and previous build, facebook is loading/opening pages very slowly…

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There have been some reports on it. I’m unable to reproduce here.

    • João Gonçalves

      Join the club. I have that same problem. Not only Facebook but several others pages.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I had the same problems with the older developers, but this version here runs really fast on my computer. So I’m satisfied with this point.
      W10x64
      Opera x64 (standalone installation)

    • Vux777

      as of today afternoon no more problems with Facebook for me
      Last time I tried (yesterday, I’m using beta as my main)
      FB pages were very slow, for example, clicking on someone profile name or image, or opening album page and individual images
      Right now I don’t experience it anymore.
      Maybe they update browser.js silently?!

    • SiMcarD

      Same problem here. I notice it mostly on pages with a lot of images.

    • Ghirahim

      Same here. Three builds in a row.

    • BK

      Have you updated the build? @Vux777:disqus and @ralfbrinkmann:disqus say it’s fixed for them since this build/

      • beBoss

        Yes I do!

  • Leonardo Gomes

    If you go to Opera’s channel on Youtube, the newsfeed icon will not show up in address bar. However, if you paste its address into the search bar in ‘add a source’, it will find a news feed source.

    It’s also valid for other Youtube channels.

    • Thanks for reporting

    • I tried it, and it works for me just fine. Do you see the icon on other pages? For example on pinkbike.com?

      • Leonardo Gomes

        It seems a little bit more complex.

        If I open a video on Youtube (i.e. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WluCUKKWLRs) and then click on the link to the channel there, I will not see the newsfeed icon on address bar.
        However if I directly open the channel (https://www.youtube.com/opera) then I can see the newsfeed icon.
        And yes, I can see the feeds icon in other pages.

        • Thanks, that will help us look at it.

        • I just tried it myself and I can’t reproduce the issue.

          1. Open https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WluCUKKWLRs)
          2. No newsfeed icon – ok
          3. Click on Opera (text link underneath the title) I end up on page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVJ4zeC6bc5Yx1nPiUZ2csA
          4. Newsfeed icon is show and includes correct RSS.

          Also

          Clicking Opera red O logo takes me to: https://www.youtube.com/user/operasoftware and there I get newsfeed icon as well.

          • Vux777

            I can confirm behavior from Leo’s comment
            …also, if you follow any of the video links from Opera channel, they won’t have news icon if channel didn’t have icon.
            if it did, individual videos will also have it

          • Thanks for checking, would you mind going over my steps? Do they work for you?

          • Vux777

            nope
            – if I follow the link from Opera video to Opera channel, no icon
            – if I open Opera channel directly, there is an icon

            also to notice, there is a different number of blocked ads, 9 vs 5 (with 9 there is no icon)…maybe just coincidence

          • Thanks all. We’ll investigate.

          • RafaellaG

            Can confirm it too.
            After step 3. no newsfeed icon.
            If I reload the page icon is there again.

            Win10x64, x64 build

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Here the icon also shows up again if the page is reloaded.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            No feeds icon here after have followed those steps.

            https://www.youtube.com/user/operasoftware also doesn’t show the icon if I get there by clicking on the Opera logo. Seems to work if the address is directly accessed.

    I close one of my opened tabs, close Opera, restart Opera, the before closed tab is open again.

    • BK

      Is slow FB issue gone in this dev build for you?

      • BK

        Ah, I see, you already reported below 🙂

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Yes. After updating the Adobe Flash Player this morning, Facebook seemed to be slow again. Then I emptied the cache a few times, restarted Opera, muttered a few spells and then it run.

          The only thing that is still there is the problem with embedded movies in Opera. Sometimes they stop playing or only the visible part stops while the sound is going on.

            Thx! (this is tracked as DNA-56895)

      • João Gonçalves

        For me, no. Still present. Very slow and unresponsive.

        • BK

          thx for confirmation.

          • David_Gould

            I have a similar problem. Pages mostly load fine. It’s typing that is unresponsive. Seems to be a memory management issue ie disk access before screen updates. Much worse with FB Purity extension.

          • David_Gould

            Got major FB slowdown today, nothing to do with FB Purity. Tested fine in Vivaldi.

            Rest of tabs are fine. Don’t know how to clear cache since O15.

      • João Gonçalves

        The problem is that it’s not only in Facebook. For example in http://www.olx.pt I have the same problem. Several times I had to close and open Opera again to be able to fully load the page in http://www.olx.pt

    • Aneta Reluga

      I have to ask again, but do you do anything special when closing the tab and restarting? I try to reproduce to no avail, as I already said 🙁

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        No, Aneta, nothing special. Sometimes after closing and restarting Opera I find an old tab opened, that I already have forgotten. But always the last one I had closed. I think the same effect that João Gonçalves describes.

        • João Gonçalves

          True, it happens to me too. Don’t know how to trigger it as it doesn’t happen always. But the fact is that it happens.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I see it happening randomly here too.

  • João Gonçalves

    I don’t know if it’s a know issue or not but when I close and open Opera, it opens with the same tabs I had before plus one previously closed tab. I don’t want this behavior. I just want it to restore the open tabs, not the closed ones.

    • Aneta Reluga

      I don’t have this behavior (and I checked with almost 100 heavy-laden tabs). Does it happen always for you, or only when you close the tab and immediately restart Opera?

      • João Gonçalves

        I doesn’t happen always. I couldn’t figure out what’s triggering this behavior. It only opens the last closed tab. It happens more with images (an image in a tab). Happen with immediately closed tabs and with tabs closed long time before closing Opera.

  • AdKiller

    Speed dial add-on tiles are blank on the Speed dial page. Is this a known issue for this build? My Gismeteo Speed-dial weather add-on is blank for example. Tried Yandex Weather for Speed-dial, same issue. The configuration page for these add-ons load and work fine.

    I must supplement my posting from yesterday (https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2016/09/opera-developer-41-0-2349-0-update/#comment-2891324094).

    This developer runs better and faster than the other two developers before. But now I have compared it with the beta. The actual beta is much faster on my computer! Especially Facebook.

    – HOW?

    Developer version WITHOUT your “autoupdate exe” – this program not closed herself, i kill it with taskmanager! (it want to internet, i not want its)

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Have you tried to….update?

      • led9ru

        What update? This new developer version? And which version to install? Have you tried to….explain? 🙂

        64 bit, install type – on usb stick, after 10 minutes of use Opera
        there is requirement to upgrade – not normal.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Usually the red menu means that a new build was just downloaded and needs a Opera restart to be installed.

          If the automatic update/installation isn’t working, try running Opera’s installer.

          • led9ru

            You not understand that – “version already totally new, problem in this version”? What kind of education do you have?

  • Ghirahim

    When will Opera 64 become a real thing, not only experimental?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, latest beta release has a x64 build, so there is a chance that stable got one too.

  • kentooo

    When I open Opera menu in mac version, the browser broken and restart automatically, both in 41.0.2349.0 & 40.0.2308.52

    BTW, I use the macOS 10.12(16A319),Retina macbook pro 15″ mid 2015

    please fix this problem and thanks for your work

    sorry for my poor English

  • Oskar

    Awesome news about Opera 64. Will this be installed automatically on 64-bit systems or do you have to install that version also?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I would guess the second option.

  • Кostadin

    Interesting. But related to video streaming only. Would be interesting to see a real browsing test. https://microsoftedge.github.io/videotest/2016-09/NetflixMethodology.html

  • bratpit

    finally fixed slow /Jamming/ loading pages.

    Tab Stacking Please!

    Otherwise I’m going Vivaldi 1.1.2017 when the Chinese take over.

    But Tab stacking, ad-blocker and VPN will keep me at Opera!

    • Ghirahim

      Vivaldi? Good choice. Literally the worst browser on the market, even worse than clunky Firefox.

  • Juan Vase

    when I disabled search popup, and moved to open tab of wikipedia
    it redirected to printable version.

  • I’m having strange issues with this version – the tab menu doesn’t like to show up when tab switching or clicking on it, and the little search|copy popup has gone missing despite being enabled in both Settings and the flags. I’m using Windows 10 (latest Fast ring insider version).

  • David_Gould

    Tabs Outliner won’t open a window for itself in this version. At least here, anyway. Have standard no-popups option set.

    Edit: Never mind, think extension installation became corrupt.

  • g d

    Any chance of giving the news page a theme or coloured background or maybe access from stylish???

  • By the way, I still can’t get chrome cast to work using latest build. It says error connecting every time and blue screens.

    Also, native adblocking doesn’t seem to be using all the easylist rules properly. Some ads are still coming through while if I use it with adblock or ublock it works. Some sites are half broken for no reason either. A good example is showcase on https://techcrunch.com. The video is being blocked while ublock doesn’t block it using the same filter. In addition to all this, native adblocker seems to be slower than ublock. When loading websites ads show up for a quick second and then disappear. While with ublock they never show up at all. Please investigate this guys. I really want to use native adblocker, but it’s pretty much un-usable at this point.

    • RafaellaG

      To test the native adblocking: add the easylist filter (https://easylist.github.io/easylist/easylist.txt) to the custom filter lists in settings > privacy&security > block ads

      • ?

        What part of my comment was not clear? Also, Opera is using easylist as a default from what I have been told. In addition, using multiple filters (https://filterlists.com/) still does not provide sufficient blocking and is breaking sites.

  • MadEddy

    On 4chan, embedded contents like videos or captchas can take quite some time to load and display. It’s instant in stable.
    It’s not consistant though, but it seems it is more likely to happen in threads with a high number of replies.

  • SiMcarD

    In the last 3 builds Top Eleven doesn’t load.
    http://www.topeleven.com/it/play/
    (you have to be registered)

    • RafaellaG

      Do you mean the endless “loading”?

      If so, then allow the social media tracker Facebook Connect in Ghostery and it’s loading.

      If not (and/or you don’t use Ghostery), then I don’t know, ’cause I’m not registered.

      • SiMcarD

        No, the game itself loads but hangs when it should load the graphics.

        • RafaellaG

          Ah ok. Then I can’t help. I’m sorry.

  • Luis Amaral

    I dont know if this has been reported or if its just my laptop but playing youtube videos with the html5 player and hardware acceleration rnable causes one of the color layers to be ‘off’ and making the video unwatchable. Turning hardware off fixes the problem for me.

    Video that doesnt play right for me : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6x-jxAZedo
    I am using the 64bit version of Opera.

  • Nikita

    Please, make a version for Windows 10 Mobile. Opera mini so outdated

    • cicciazzo

      yes… develop a full version pls. I’d use even opera mini on w10 mobile, but I can’t, because it doesn’t support sync! at least implement bookmarks sync on mini. thanks.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        They don’t seem to be even developing Mini. I guess Win10 mobile market share may still be too low to justify spending resources on it.

        BTW, this is the Desktop team blog; You may get better luck if you ask in the Mobile Team blog.

        • cicciazzo

          too bad it’s not being developed. but opera on windows mobile could be an opportunity to gain more users: opera could be the only browser able to block ads, since edge on mobile doesn’t have addons.

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            Mobile version of the Opera is based on the Chromium engine, so that the development of Opera for Windows Phone depends on whether the Google port Chromium engine to Windows Phone, or not. Opera developer’s team can not port and maintain Chromium themselves, the team is too small for this.

          • cicciazzo

            ok, I understand. but still they can at least add bookmark sync (and password!) to opera mini.

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            They can, indeed.

  • Юлия

    If the file has the name in Cyrillic alphabet, Opera (or any other browser) can’t open it. When the name of the same file is changed to Latin, Opera (and other browsers) can open it without any problems.

    I just deleted my 32-bit Opera developer and installed 64-bit. Same problems, unfortunately. It’s very slow, unresponsive.

    The “News” page with a theme or coloured background to cut down glare.

      You know it won’t happen just because you ask for it once a week, right? 🙂

      Anyway, Why do you think it should be implemented? How would it benefit the users?

    I want to report stopping of the video randomly … e.g. facebook video after few seconds or even after 1 minute video stops … then I open the video and it looks and behaves differently … no video controller bar … even after that I close the video and reopen … video has again different shape and no controller bar. … please try to fix THIS thing at first … it is really annoying … everything other is working good but this drives me nuts.

  • Ghirahim

    New build, please.

  • mattho1

    last 3 developer builds i am experiencing incredibly slow loading of facebook and sites containing “facebook elements”. In other browsers is everything ok. Any advice, what can be wrong? (Win10 64bit, Opera 32bit)

    • Ghirahim

      Read the comments, people have the same problems as you. Those builds are slow and unresponsive.

  • Olga Shklyarova

    I can’t update Opera to the 41.0.2349.0 on my home PC. (at work everything is OK).
    1. first I was waiting almost 10 days till the update arriving
    2. then I was tired waiting and opened the About Opera tab. there was written “the new update is available”, and that’s it. no update button, nothing.
    3. Then the update button finally appeared. Opera restarted… but nothing changed. release was still the same. and remain the same after several attempt to change it.
    What should I do?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Download and run the online installer. If it doesn’t work, try the offline one.

  • SiMcarD

    New build for tomorrow? 🙂

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There is always a chance. So let’s hope. 🙂

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I think there must have been a lot of problems and mistakes in this v.41.x, so they need more time as usual to clear everything up and renew it.

    • L33t4opera

      The first Opera developer 42.0.2372.0 😉

  • Pierre771

    The 64 bits runs perfectly.
    For the autoupdate, it seems its looks for update in “about Opera” but impossible to know if it works when no update exists
