    No complaints? Then you can push it to stable.

    • John Di

      Bugs will always occur, also in stable version. In my opinion more important reason to push it to stable channel are security bugs, which are fixed in Chrome 55.0.2883.75.

      I *think* that if you remove all occurrences of that URL from history it won’t show up anymore

      • Lord of Misrule

        Maybe that’s the case, but there should be simple way to do this, like there is in Chrome or Firefox. It can get very annoying when for example you misspell the URL of a site and the first suggestion, when starting to type the address, is the wrong one.

        • Ari

          After getting into the right site a couple of times it will show it up on the first place.

          • Lord of Misrule

            Well, the example with the typo was just one scenario. I’ve tried your method and removed all instances of an address from history and still the URL appears as a suggestion when typing it in the address bar.

          • Ari

            You’re right it doesn’t disappear. On the other hand I tried mcdonalda.com and mcdonalds.com, each visited site has a counter and it will put first the one that you have clicked/selected the most. That is, I started typing “mcdona” and choose 3 times mcdonalda and it was on top, then I typed the same and had to choose 4 times mcdonalds for it to appear on top. Probably is not the best but it’s a workaround.
            PS. This scoring feature is the same as in Firefox/Chrome

        • Ari

          And if it was a typo then it should appear only once on the history, so it’s probably one more step than chrome/firefox.

    Folders on bookmarks bar are hardly distinguishable from the inner pages =(

      Издалека заходишь, чтобы предложить опцию кастомизации иконок? 😀

      • Cobalt

        Да нет, просто не нравится, что папки плохо различимы с иконками служебных / внутренних страниц, которые у меня закреплены на панели закладок =)

          +1 Хотя бы сделали бы их желтыми.
          Или желтыми с черным контуром, было бы вообще бест.

    Error opening files from a local drive. html and pdf

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. create or save the file to a directory on the local disk, in whose name the present symbol # .
    example c:temp#manfilename.pdf
    2. in Windows Explorer, select the c:temp#manfilename.pdf to open in Opera.

    Actual result:
    Opera will display the contents of the directory upper #man, ie c:temp

    Expected result:
    should open the file filename.pdf in Opera


  • Ari

    I’m still seeing this:

    Issue: When I open a link with middle click or Ctrl+click, then grab the new tab (without having focused on it yet) and detach it from the window it will look like this:

    It doesn’t happen always, but you have to detach the tab while it’s loading. It happens to me mostly when I open a YT video link, but it’s reproducible with any website.

    For fixing it I have to create a new tab on that new window and then go back to the one with the issue and the content will appear.

    Windows 8.1Pro x64 – Ox64 latest beta

    • Kornelia

      Hi Ari, I managed to reproduce this issue so I will report it. Thanks!

      • Ari

        Thank you!!

  • This beta is unusable on macOS, as it crashes instantly after launch

    Opera Helper & crashpad_handler both crash, Apple has the crash reports (3 or 4 of each)

    macOS 10.12.1

    • Kornelia

      Hi Chas4, any details about how you’re launching it? It crashes right after the update? You open it with some tabs opened?

      • It tries to open the last session (I have kept, stable, beta, dev all separate)

        I tried to launch it via spotlight & apps folder. Tried to install the current beta over itself to see if it was a bad update, but no luck

  • Daivy Merlijs

    Release date for stable version?

  • szymon.nowak

    Hej Kornelia – myślę że powinniście o tym napisać – Opera jest jedyną przeglądarką na tablety i ultrabooki ( z ekranem dotykowym) z Windows 10 która oprócz IE11 nie zawiesza funkcji dotykowej ekranu, co ciekawe nawet wbudowany Edge to robi. Przetestowałem IE11, Edge , Firefoxa, Chrome (również Canary) , i Chromium . Test była na 10 tabletach Surface Pro 4 i ultrabookach Dell XPS 13. Tylko IE11 i Opera zachowują funkcje dotykowe bez zwiechy po dłuższym czasie korzystania .

  • EchoFromSpace

    It looks like the news feeds detection isn’t working anymore. I don’t get an icon in the address bar. The flag News feeds page action is enabled.

  • EchoFromSpace

    When double clicking a word, the position of the Search/Copy Popup isn’t correct when the page is zoomed. It pop ups as if the zoom is 100%.

  • iG0Lka

    Kornelia, whether it is possible to do so, you can select a link in the text, and clicking on it the wheel to open it in a background tab?
    Now to open the links (which Opera does not recognize the link), you need to select a link, then click the right mouse button and then hold down Ctrl to select “Go to web address”
    example: https://habrastorage.org/files/cea/1db/f59/cea1dbf595334581a11e9e74278800c7.jpg


  • Cobalt

    Developers, why someone may need to disable the “Delay loading of background tabs”? Maybe it’s time to remove this option from the settings?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Depending on your computer and connection, disabling that option would be a wise thing to do.

      I used to disable it until a while ago because I wanted to have all opened tabs available in case of a Opera restart.

  • Cobalt

    Another problem with the display of the page opera://flags/

  • Cobalt

    Problems with the redraw of Speed Dial, if open two windows of different sizes

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open two windows of different sizes: http://jpegshare.net/b2/12/b212357bf6f798e7e88ebc1e25e3ead7.png.html
    2. Press several times Ctrl+T in the window that is larger in size (not minimize to the task bar a small window)


  • GOD

    How can I see if there are new items in personal news without having to open a new tab?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      in 43 you will see a blue dot in the newsfeed icon in start page. Dont know if 42 has it too.

      • GOD

        It has. But I don’t want to open a new tab for the start page to shown so I can see if there are new items.

        Some toolbar icon, maybe?!

  • Игорь Князев

    Opera still has a problem with playing coubs one by one when there are more than 10 coubs on one page. After approximately 10th coub – black screen for a few seconds, then page redraws, played coubs are green and not playable. There might be a problem with nvidia drivers also, idk. But have the latest drivers. Every latest opera build has this problem including stable beta and developer branches. Tested on gtx970 and gtx560 geforce cards. It’s random actually, tried to reproduce this now and i counted 40 coubs, but seems it happened when playing one coub – vertical one.

  • Izer0

    I am not sure, if this is fixed in beta, but I have serious problem with stable as a webdeveloper – it does not reload css and js files when I hit reload button (it worked properly on older Opera version). It is veeeeery annoying behaviour for developer, I spent lot of time by searching for an problem and the problem was that Opera loaded cached JS and I need to open IS file directly in Opera and then hit reload. It is stupid behaviour 🙁 Please, fix it. (I know there is disable cache in developer tools, but who want to open developer tools everytime I want do something…)

    • Do you actually use forced refresh option? It does work in Opera and other browsers in same way, reload content without the cache.
      Mac: Alt+Command+R
      Win/Linux: Ctrl+F5

    if you are even reading this… please, create tool for backup&restore… I’m tired of manual setting up of my speed dial & rest of the content, you should really firstly get in touch with your synch-backup tools…

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I don’t think Opera or any program should have (or even needs) its own backup tool.

      There are several backup tools out there that works not only for Opera but for (almost?) any software installed. Also, people should not rely only on a software to backup important data.

  • Cobalt

    Dear developers, really miss the possibility to find the selected text in a text field using the search engine by default through the context menu (like in Chrome & Firefox)

    Chrome: http://jpegshare.net/f5/c6/f5c6456806a10920f7366686e01f4f1b.jpg.html

  • tjcombo

    We want Notes, bring back the nots with sync! And why don’t the duplicate site mouse gesture work any longer? Its so sad you downgrading functions!
    Other than that, I love opera!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You want notes.

      Does that gesture ever worked in Opera Blink?

      • tjcombo

        I don’t know about Opera Blink, but in regular Opera, all mouse gestures works, except the duplicate site gesture, down up gesture, which worked on the old Opera (12)

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Opera Blink is Opera 15+.

    • jho

      V7 Notes sidebar extension. Available since v32 now…

      • tjcombo

        with sync (Opera link) ?

      • tjcombo

        Thank you mate, the problem is not only having notes, but SYNC,
        anyways your tip of V7 notes is better then nothing, there is some export functions. but sync is really needed.

        • Do you use Gmail? Create a draft title it “Notes” and write down anything you like there. It will sync across all your devices…

    • Abhi

      Use LinkedNotes extension for Chrome. It has sync too.

    • Abhi

      Use LinkedNotes extension for Chrome. It has sync too!

  • tjcombo

    Even Vivaldi has the duplicate site gesture, why not Opera? bring it back!
    And what about holding middle button and scroll to flip through sites?
    The Old Opera had it all :'(

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Why such mouse gesture would be useful for the users?

      • Rafael Luik

        Why leaving Down->Up gesture and RMB+scroll attached to NO ACTION would be useful for users?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Don’t know, my question wasn’t about that. I was asking about the actions, specially the ‘duplicate site’ one.

          • Rafael Luik

            There’s a close button in a tab, there’s a mouse gesture for that.
            There’s a new tab button in tab bar, there’s a mouse gesture for that.
            There’s a gesture for reload, back, forward… For those there are no “why is it useful??” questions. Why?

            There’s a duplicate tab in the tab’s context menu and no mouse gesture for that. Up->Down gesture is what Opera pre-15 used for duplicate/clone tab, now it’s completely vacant. Now you answer me, why…?

            RMB+scroll does nothing. Opera pre-15 used to cycle through tabs. Comfortable tab switch using only the mouse, 1 hand, no keyboard combination requiring the move of two fingers just a clever use of mouse wheel hardware where two fingers are already closely positioned anyways. Not useful?

  • tjcombo

    Though some thing are missing. Opera is by far the fastet browser for Internet experience! <3

  • Cobalt

    Horizontal drag link’s text selection – this is mega-cool!
    In Chrome for these purposes it is necessary to install the extension “Select like a Boss”: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/select-like-a-boss/mnbiiidkialopoakajjpeghipbpljffi

    You definitely doing the BEST web browser based on Chromium!!! I wish you prosperity and all the best.

  • Cobalt

    Guys, try the new “History” (Material Design) in the 55th version of Chrome. It is much more comfortable and functional than in Opera =(

    • Leonardo Gomes

      For me the only useful difference is the possibility of selecting multiple entries. The rest is just cosmetic.

  • Kevinar

    Please, can you add setting Open tab in backgroud in pop-up Search/Copy for Search.

  • Eliyahu Polyakov

    memory leak while VPN is on…

  • L33t4opera

    New build – Opera beta 42.0.2393.78 😉
    The change log, and the announcement.

  • iG0Lka

    It does not work VPN.
    When the VPN page loading does not occur.
    Сan not change the “optimal location”.
    The Toe time extension ZtnMate works without problems.
