    O_o mega bugs win 7

  • Alexander Chernig0v

    In the new version of the opera starting from 45 (there are no such problems only up to 44 versions inclusive), the problem when opening the browser for a fraction of seconds is displayed by the theme of Windows (who has a light transparent transparent screen for a fraction of a second), lags on flash games and YouTube, Smoothness. (WIN 7 x64)

      Hi, this is already reported. 🙂

  • maps.google.com does not function with hardware acceleration disabled.


    • Leonardo Gomes

      Check if opera://gpu list amy issue with your video card driver.

      Here Google Maps works fine.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Why exactly did you disable hardware acceleration?

      • I’m good. Just thought it might be an issue for other Opera users, not aware of this requirement in settings.

        Perhaps the default setting is Enabled and I was not aware. Anyway, thanks.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Yes, as far as I know hardware acceleration is enabled by default.

          And some things may not work with it disabled.

  • BELET Ludovic

    Opera freezes when enable/disable many times the VPN.I’m on Windows 10 Pro x64, and I just formated my PC.

    • Ewa

      Sorry, can’t reproduce this.

      • robdwoods

        I have no antivurus turned on except Windows Defender. With version 46.0.2597.32 and latest Win 10 update, VPN will not connect.

    • Alex Wazovskiy

      Do you have an installed any antivirus/firewall? Because Avast in (random cases) blocking Opera’s VPN. Your freezes might be caused by AV too (It’s just my supposition).

  • firuz_u7

    Chrome is already 59.0.3071.115

  • K. K. VinayKumar

    Opera in HiDpi screen is messed up. Extension icons and Speed Dial wallpaper are blurry. This can be seen in both Windows 7 64bit and Windows 10 64bit. Speed Dial and bookmarks fonts are not rendered properly and even some websites also display broken fonts(i.e fonts are not smooth). Highly disappointed 🙁

  • Mateusz

    Po aktualizacji do wersji 46 i po jej update w Zakladkach zamiast polskiego pojawiły się angielskie tłumaczenia. All bookmarks, unsorted bookmarks.

    • Ewa

      Hi, please write in English. This is already reported.

      • Paweł

        I’ll finish my colleague.
        After updating to version 46 and after updating it in Polish instead of Polish, English translations appeared. All bookmarks, unsorted bookmarks.

  • Surreal X

    Thanks for the update, minor issue here, the loading icon is pixelated if windows scaling is changed to a higher scale factor:


    OS: Windows 10 x64 (1607)
    Opera: 46.0.2597.32

    • Sebastian

      Thanks, reported.

  • Ricardo J. Barberis


    Thanks for fixing DNA-60727, I was about to report that 🙂

  • Bali505

    Dear Opera Team, please consider to bring back the Turbo Modus in the Menu – or even better – make a toggle on/off button for the side bar, which is activatable in the settings.

    • Nekomajin43

      Find Turbo Button in the extension catalog!

      • Hector MA

        But what was the point in removing it?
        It was in the menu, not taking any screen space.
        It should even be part of the tab menu.
        It should even work on a tab-basis, I requested this many years ago.

        • Nekomajin43

          I agree with you, but for now, you can take it or leave it. If you don’t want another button on the toolbar, just remove it, and use the keyboard shortcut.

      • Bali505

        Works like a charm! Thanks Nekomajin 🙂

        Still Opera…

  • Piotr

    I’ve just switched to 46 and “Disable tab bar’s top spacing when browser window is maximized” doesn’t work for me anymore. Help.

    EDIT: When maximized, Opera partly hides itself under Windows 7 taskbar.


    • Ewa

      Sorry, can’t reproduce this

      • Jeff

        I have my task bar on the top of the screen. I’ve seen this numerous times in Windows 10 64-bit.

        • Hector MA

          Is your taskbar locked?
          Could be a Windows issue, not Opera’s.
          It could even be a graphic driver issue.

          • Jeff

            The task bar is not locked, no. Driver is a possibility, since it’s only on my home machine, not my work desktop. I sometimes have to drag the task bar to the side just to get to the buttons to resize Opera sometimes.

  • Paweł

    On Windows 8.1 you can share the option “show system color on the upper beam”? Dark theme, works best, only on Win10. Thanks.

  • Matej Szendi

    Can you correct Czech translation for “Enable dark theme” from “Povolit temný téma” to “Povolit temné téma”?

    • Ewa

      Thank you, reported 🙂

      • redfox

        It has been already reported by myself. The correct Czech translation is “Nastavit tmavý motiv”.

  • Yehor

    Please make #windows-10-skin option disabled http://prntscr.com/fk0l31 work again!
    So Opera would become respecting windows 10 WINDOWS COLORS again


    The last version where it still works fine is opera 44

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Option to use system colors on top bar was removed.

      • Hector MA

        I love these answers.

        He knows, he’s asking for it to return.

      • Yehor

        Too bad, just compare 2 windows and see which one is better for eyes. https://image.prntscr.com/image/yTVy1vS7SCmoSGueCDEBHA.png

        Why ruin the thing which worked perfectly for a long time …

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Doesn’t make much difference for me.
          Anyway, have you tried the dark theme?

          • Nekomajin43

            What’s your point with the dark theme?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The image seemed to show that a darker background was preferred so i thought that the dark theme could help.

          • Nekomajin43

            Background != theme

            The problem is with the window frame/tab bar. It’s ok on win7 because of the aero, but aweful on other systems.

          • Yehor

            So is it really hard to make system color for titlebar in Opera or do you think it’s useless for most of users?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Can’t answer the first question as I’m not a developer nor I work for Opera. Regarding the second part, no I don’t think it’s useless and I would like to see it back myself.
            But it’s nothing that I can’t live without.

          • Yehor

            Yes, I tried, it’s quite dark for me

            And the difference is that previous opera colored only titlebar, while the new version makes dark a lot more elements

      • Nekomajin43

        You do a wonderful job here to make users angrier by stating the obvious again and again. 🙂

        • Leonardo Gomes

          What is obvious for ones may not be for others. 🙂

  • Having Opera turbo on has cut Opera’s CPU usage a huge amount. Turbo on 1 to 4%, off it is 16 to 40%

    macOS 10.12.5

  • nme

    There’s still that annoying ‘random tab reopen’ bug… Have multiple tabs, close them (delete history/data – probably happens without this step, too), close browser, open it again – get greeted with a random tab from last session – usually the most sensitive one, like porn :p – murphy’s law at work.
    Also, I noticed one strange thing too – WPS (Kingsoft) Office uninstall process removes Opera’s pinned taskbar shortcut (saw it happening multiple times under Windows 7 64, haven’t tried reproducing it), you should check what’s happening…

    • Ewa

      Hi, could you please provide exact steps how do you get 1st bug? 🙂 You can also use Private mode for most “sensitive” pages 🙂

      • nme

        Sadly I cannot, it happens randomly and it happened today as well. I’m using uBlock Origin, but IIRC same thing was happening without it. Also, there’s a lot of sensitive stuff people could extrapolate from the sites we visit, not only that we all do watch porn sometimes. I live alone, so in my case it’s not a problem, but I consider this a very significant security issue. For example, what if Opera reopens your LinkedIn account I was just looking at when my girlfriends sits over here? She would be very mad to see me particularly interested in some pretty polish software tester. Luckily I don’t have one currently – bulled dodged, whew 😉

        • Ewa

          Thanks for reporting, we will check this 🙂

          • Rafael Luik

            Hi. I reported this issue some time ago as DNAWIZ-1771 (yes, it’s that old).

            Wish you folks luck to fix it.

  • Ariane Lu

    Got two icon on taskbar, one is launcher.exe, another one is opera.exe

  • Aleksander

    Ewa is such a good looking tester)

    But, still cant use with O46 maps.google.com, overclockers.ru, rutor.is – O is hangs, and cursor is start flickering non stop… have such problem even if I press right click on this field where I typing now)

    • Ewa

      🙂 Could you provide a video?

  • Thor

    Since this update starting Opera with the command –alt-high-dpi-setting=xxx doesn’t work anymore 🙁 Please if you could fix that it would be wonderfull. I’m on Windows 10. Thanks.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The command has changed.

      • Thor

        And do you know the new command ?
        I found –force-device-scale-factor=1.x and it seems to work fine, hopefully it will remain that way…

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Yep, the command is that one.

  • Abhilash LL

    Cannot see the drop down next to Login in my banks website

  • Leonid Sinev

    Something changed in font size setting. Now speeddial fonts became smaller in size (harder to read). May be you start to inherit it from some Windows 10 settings… It would be great to have some font size controlling settings for every place in Opera (at least for advanced users in opera://flags/).

  • redfox

    It seems that there might be something wrong with the Opera VPN security.
    When I visited Facebook and Blizzard web sites with the VPN enabled, and logged in, I got e-mail warnings after some time (about half a day) that someone had been trying to compromise these accounts. Weird.
    I’d like to find out, if an Opera VPN server is able to perform a MITM attack.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe because those sites detect that you are connecting from a place that is not the usual one?

      • redfox

        Yes, it is almost true. For example, Blizzard detected the new IP and send me a verification code, then I logged in normally.
        The warning e-mail (I wrote about) arrived much later, about 4 hours after my successful login. Facebook even blocked my account “due to suspicious activity” 2 days after my visit through the VPN.

  • Fenrir

    Here we go again, another automatic update… I can’t load pages or videos anymore, they just freeze (already updated the flash player and nothing changed.). Sincerely, I wish I could revert updates or even remove the automatic update.
    also, you guys removed a lot of things that was useful like internet usage, and so many other things from Settings. It’s not giving us the “freedom” this browser used to give.

  • Penny Mayes

    Since the latest update google maps cause the browser to hang or crash. I use them a lot – how can I return to previous version?

    • Try clearing the cache

      • Penny Mayes

        Still won’t load the map – but hasn’t crashed the browser yet…

  • http://www.adultswim.com/toonami/#qIQnhwOrVZqc Is blocking anything that is not Chrome (might be a BrowserJS fix)

  • Алексей Фартусов

    Please return the parameter: extended-lazy-session-loading !!!
    In version 46.0.2597.32 it disappeared
    For many, this caused a big negative.
    Return the switch back to disabling automatic loading of inactive tabs!!!

    • Leonid Sinev

      Is it not the same as #lazy-session-loading-default-enabled?

      • Алексей Фартусов

        Unfortunately, this option does not affect the disabling of automatic loading of inactive tabs.
        It would be possible to transfer this effect to this option.

        Disabling automatic loading of inactive tabs occurs only in the “Opera Turbo” mode.
        Need this feature in any mode!

  • Afshin Rabiei

    I cannot move tabs between windows anymore! and for some reason opera looks uglier since the update!

  • Erik

    Let’s say I’m scrolling down the page on Twitter, all is good untill i see there’s a video.
    The video is not started, i should click play, but i don’t, i just want to continue scrolling the page.
    Here start my problem, cpu goes high and everything start to be unresponsible.
    I have to close and restart Opera.
    (Manjaro linux & KDE Plasma).
    Tried disabling hardware acceleration but nothing changed.

  • Aleksandr Habarov

    блять пиздец! как же вы заебли со своими багами, сука, увольте в пизду ваших кодеров и наймите других, у которых руки растут не из жопы. последний релиз – это просто ебаный стыд. опера хорош уже заниматься ебаторией, займитесь делом.

  • redfox

    It seems that this Opera/Chromium version stopped an extension’s auto-updates, if the extension is hosted outside the official servers. Even manual update in the dev mode does not work. Too bad.

    • Ewa

      Hi, which extension doesn’t autoupdate?

      • redfox

        Its my extension “Autosort Bookmarks CE”, I already posted a link here recently… ( http://foxtools.tk/abce ). The autoupdate worked well in v45.

  • L33t4opera

    New build – Opera stable 46.0.2597.39 😉

  • Barbara Neuser

    The current Opera build will crash (then recovers) when I try to print from Yahoo mail or from a logged-in website. The entire browser crashes. This did not happen before this build.

    I had to use Internet Explorer to print anything.

  • 30011887

    please add back the Show system color on top bar, be great to have dark theme but with a color option aswell
