      • Kurt Zon

        Sorry to hear that, Ralf….took me a couple of logons before it was ok..

  • PakSae

    VPN toggle issue still exist.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      What’s the problem with VPN? Here (Germany) it works.

      • PakSae

        What I mean is not if VPN does work or not.
        VPN toggling make Opera stuck.

        Please check below.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          No problem here.

        • Rafał

          same problem here

      • PakSae

        Maybe hardly see it in Gemany.
        It can be seen often when vpn does not work.

    • Yes, we are aware of it. When it will be fixed it will appear in changelog.

  • PakSae

    Sub menu popup in main menu is below than normal.
    Is it by design?

  • Any info on Enable fraud protection v2 ?

    • nanana1

      Found this entry in the changelog :
      – DNA-60635 Enable fraud protection v2 in Developer stream

      • Tratsing

        What fraud protection v2 is about?

    • This are improvements to ‘Protect me from malicious sites’ setting. We updated protocol to send less data by using binary files instead of xml.

  • PakSae

    In sidebar, only tabs and pin have clear icon.

  • Nekomajin43

    How about native context menus on Win7?

  • C.C.

    favicons are OK but theres still missing space between tabs and the top of the screen http://imgur.com/sL4MJ9r

  • Tratsing

    Thank you very-very-very much for solving DNA-61043!

  • Paweł K.

    Search & Copy context menu still does not work. Surface Pro 3

      Same here, Windows 10 Version 1703

    • We are tracking it internally as DNA-61013 “[HiDPI] Search/Copy feature does not work.”

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Maciej, thanks for the update and fixes 😉
    I appreciate, that finally the bugs: "DNA-60397 [Linux] Black borders on context menus", and "DNA-60408 [Linux] Sub-menu after expand is visible /expandable/ only once" have been fixed.

    Two bugs:
    1. After you add a new search engine, it's displayed twice below "Other search engines",
    2. Doubled enable/disable in drop-down lists in opera:flags.
    1. "VP8/VP9VP8/VP9" in opera:flags#power-save-mode-webrtc-video-codecs,
    2. "NotificationsNotifications" in opera:flags#personal-news-notifications.

    New flags:
    – opera:flags#vibrate-requires-user-gesture
    Block the Vibration API if no user gesture has been received on the frame or any embedded frame.

    – opera:flags#enable-autofill-credit-card-upload-cvc-prompt
    If enabled, requests missing CVC when offering to upload credit cards to Google Payments.

    – opera:flags#pause-background-tabs
    Pause timers in background tabs after 5 minutes on desktop.

    Removed flags: #browser-vpn, #extended-lazy-session-loading, #first-run-partner-content-update, #hidpi-speed-dial-tiles, #hi-resolution-thumbnails, and #windows-10-skin.

    • Thanks issue reported as:
      1. DNA-61400 “Issues on opera:flags”
      2. DNA-61403 “[WebUI] Custom search engines added twice”

    • filbo

      Now I’m dreading to update. I have 60+ tabs in my ‘to get back to’ session, and really don’t want Opera to start a process for every one of them! That pushes the machine to swapping, which makes everything awfully slow. Guess I’ll have to see what happens and bugreport it (and probably stop using Opera if it behaves as I expect).

      • filbo

        Ok… now on 46.0.2602.0 and it seems to be OK, only started 20 processes (of which 11 renderers and 5 extension processes). Seemingly related flags which Opera has started itself with are now:


  • Marissa Tdai

    In the “O menu”
    Opera turbo is missing.
    It was Easy to switch it on/off from thhere
    Plus enabling VPN disables it but but disabling VPN does not re-enable it,

    have to got into settings and on/off everytime.

    So how can users enable/disable it quickly?
    like you are on the go and doing hotspot with your phone, then you
    get home, disable turbo, then 3 hours later you leave home again. I
    would take a bet that turbo is being more interacted than any other option like power saver button.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Option to enable Turbo was moved to Settings.

      • MadEddy

        I agree with Marissa on opera turbo, the shortcut was way more convenient for switching quickly and with a laptop I switch it on and off quite often when I connect to my home network or a random public network/mobile tethering.

        • Marissa Tdai

          It’s was so easy to enable/disable when needed/not needed ,
          Does opera want us to run it all times? and put load on servers when on hi 4g or Put the option in O Menu so we don’t run it on high speed 4g and let it be be not congested and free for people who are on slow connection/want to save data/2g?

      • Marissa Tdai

        Ye it was moved but that’s not a good change.

  • Amr Bamaea

    Mouse Middle Click Doesn’t Work Anymore
    Windows 10
    (UPDATE) will that’s weird after trying chrome it works again

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Last time I’ve checked, it was working fine.
      What exactly is wrong?
      Also, what OS?

  • bratpit

    Why this tooltip has white font on very light gray background.
    It is not readable.
    before opera 46-0-2590 was OK.


    and here is OK


  • Nikolai Vassiliev

    Where is Opera Turbo switch? It’s gone from a Main menu somewhere.

  • MikeGav

    Google Music not played music on Linux Fedora

  • SiMcarD

    Something is sitll broken in synchronization for me.
    In settings -> browser, after I log in, I see this:
    “Sei connesso come: undefined” (trad: “you are connected as: undefined”).

    • SiMcarD

      Update: After the 10th attempt Opera asked me to type a password to continue synchronization.
      Initially it did not accept my password. I tried the old one and it worked!
      What does it mean?

  • Juraj Frankovský

    Nice, sync is back!

  • Der Herr Nick

    Thanks for the HiDPI fixes, guys! Looks much better now.

    • Der Herr Nick

      …but the “–alt-high-dpi-setting=170” switch seems to be ignored. Mmmh.

      • Grzegorz Gacek

        I’m glad that you like it 🙂 The bad news is that the switch you’ve mentioned will no longer work. The good news is that there is an equivalent one, please try: “–force-device-scale-factor=1.7” 😉

        • Der Herr Nick

          Thanks Grzegorz!

  • beBoss

    Open an image on facebook, then click aside/close it and opera will refresh the whole page…

    • SiMcarD


    • Leonardo Gomes

      Happening here too.

    • Matheus Bitencourt

      facebook sucks

    • Luis A. Rosario


  • Regnas

    Waiting for the hardware acceleration fix…. 🙂

  • Matheus Bitencourt

    Breezing fast browser. I love Opera.

    P.S. Bring back tabs stacking (like Opera 11)

  • Nekomajin43

    Guys, I’d like to ask you to fill a survey to somehow quantify the feature requests: https://goo.gl/forms/RtwV9af9Ot3I7waB2

    The first hundred of answers are in! Please, help me to get another hundred!

    I know it’s not representative, but it may help to show the trends and the top most wanted features. We’ve got some positive words from the devs, no promises though.

    If you find anything missing from the list, please comment here or in the forum: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1883544/opera-browser-feature-survey

  • thanks for fix HiDPI mode on Windows =D

  • Ariane Lu

    Really awesome, this fixed blurry after drag to another monitor with different DPI, and mobile device emulator size looks good(incorrect size in stable channel)

    EDIT: extension icon still blurry, like this: http://i.imgur.com/WyD2ES5.png

  • Ariane Lu

    Booking.com jump out from speed dial again and again, I have a empty speed dial in my Developer edition

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Didn’t see it happening in this build yet, Booking only appeared as a suggestion.

      • Nekomajin43

        No, it appeared in the speed dial. As it did in the previous dev build.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I saw it happening on previous build but not on this one so far.

  • redfox

    I still don’t see in the changelog, if the color of bookmarks bar folder icons has been set to grey again, or not.

    • Юлия

      I don’t think so, it’s pale blue here on Windows 7

      • redfox

        Thank you very much for your reply!
        Well, Opera still did not make any change of the color since v45, despite user requests 🙁

  • Data Keeper

    When – “Use hardware acceleration when available” is Switched off.

    1. “Working in Background” cursor blinking all time (no open tabs) Win7.
    2. https://maps.google.com/ load, but could not enter anything into search field .

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Another Facebook special: Sometimes Opera doesn’t show me new postings in one special group in Facebook although there should be new postings, sometimes it shows me postings from other groups in this one group. But with Facebook I’m never sure if this is a problem of Opera or of Facebook. 🙂

  • Mat M

    I don’t see the changelog. 404

  • nanana1

    Opera 46 gets moved into the Beta stream today :


    • Leonardo Gomes

      I said I was feeling a beta coming. 🙂

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The beta seems to be based on a build older than this one.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        So do you think, some of the oddities of this version here are not in the new beta?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I guess so.
          For example, the beta still has ‘show system color on top bar’.

  • Юлия

    Yay, the 1px transparent line bug seems to be fixed.

    I noticed an inconsistency about webpage context menus – shouldn’t the shortcut for Forward action be Alt+Right? Now it says Shift+Backspace, which works, but you’d expect the analogue shortcut to be displayed here. Doing this would also make the context menu narrower, which would be a good thing.

    Btw, accessing the “changelog” link takes me to a page where it says page not found.

  • AM_PM

    STILL, unfortunately for those like me, who uses Opera to WORK; NO FIX for the “Notes” Extension. No Copy & Paste OR Writing…. PLEASE GUYS

    • Vux777

      are you on OS X?
      if so, tomorrow will probably land new developer version with the fix
      if not, then I guess next week

      I believe bug is preventing any input on sidebar extensions (notes text, search etc) on OS X

      • AM_PM

        Thank you very much for that Vux777, got an entire office here doing unnecessary typing :); that is how much we work with Opera, all of us here, 8 people.

        • Ariane Lu

          Why not install both stable and developer version?

  • PakSae
  • valentin.mkrv

    Please fix drag-and-drop of the tab to the second screen on Win 10. When it is drag-and-dropped for the first time it doesn’t save full screen mode and become windowed.

  • MegamaN

    Do you guys have an installer for a 32-bit version, the 64-bit tanks my RAM and it’s only 4GB on my laptop. I like having other stuff opened. I can do that with Firefox before I get told that my RAM is not enough.

  • Rodie

    Enabling Opera Turbo in the settings menu is very annoying, please take back the option to the main menu like it was. Thank you.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Today we had a new 46-beta. What do you think, will we have a new developer toy for the long weekend tomorrow on Friday? 47.x?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      They said probably next week.

  • zoli62

    Where is downloadable Opera Developer 46.0.2602.0 linux 32 bit deb package?

  • Ariane Lu

    I’m not sure this is a known issue?

    – Desktop notification permission confirm dialog blurry on Hi-DPI device

  • beBoss

  • David_Gould

    64-bit version keeps corrupting my saved windows and enabled extensions. Reverting to 2590. Will probably add more info in future.

  • L33t4opera

    The first Opera developer 47.0.2615.0 😉
    The change log.

  • Isabela Lee

    It is so so bad , every time it has freeze moment it closes automatically and then you need reopen multiple times a day , just open speedial and it freezes.

  • Rade Martinović

    > DNA-60929 Remove kFeatureExtendedLazySessionLoading

    Why was this done? What is the alternative to this feature?

  • massima

    Could you bring back the “opera turbo” option? It is very useful for me. Thanks
