Arrange your extensions in Opera’s developer 49 update


Today’s developer build offers custom extension placement in the toolbar, allowing you the freedom to arrange your extensions. As with tabs, if you are one to have an abundance of extensions in Opera, this will be a handy way of organising your browser’s tools. Previously, extensions were ordered in accordance to their installation date.

We are pressing on to fix HiDPI issues while also grooming Opera’s appearance for the upcoming macOS High Sierra update. These tasks make up the bulk of today’s changelog, but you’ll find other important changes in the update:

  • [HiDPI] Checkboxes were misplaced and badly scaled.
  • [HiDPI] Auto-filing was totally misplaced after DPI change.
  • [HiDPI] Dragging a tab makes screen flashing after DPI change.
  • [HiDPI] O-menu’s context menu’s borders were missing.
  • [Mac High Sierra] Search popup font was too dark.
  • [Mac High Sierra] No animation on tab hover was shown.
  • [Mac High Sierra] Broken drop target animation in extensions sidebar.
  • [Mac] Sound indicator and mute tab in tab menu were not accessible.
  • [Mac] It was impossible to activate tabs of a certain width.
  • Don’t show hint about new feature – dark theme.
  • Fix for Linux crash when enabling VPN.
