    Internal Page :


    So that if your Linux or Mac OS somehow becomes un-updatable due to a snafu at the Opera end, one can reporgram in the APT KEYs so that updates become possible.

    Barring this, modifying the “about page” to point to an internal page of the TXT kind that has tall the apt keys infos on it would be a good idea. This modification should be for all the desktop Opera versions.

        This problem happened with Opera stable, sorry for posting in wrong place.
        Today the tabs from my previous Opera session disappeared and recently closed tabs menu is back.

    My list of bugs found in this build. Most of them related with touchscreen input due to some changes in this department.
    1. Can’t drag a window or double tap to maximize using touchscreen, detaching of tabs with fingers also almost broken.
    2. Graphical glitch on the first page of ‘Settings’. Move your cursor around ‘Sidebar’ and ‘Wallpapers’ section, you will see random blinking checkboxes right under themes.
    3. Tab menu still has scaling bugs with borders on the top and down (HiDPI, 150% system scale). Also drop-down menus in settings is hard to open with touch and sometimes they show black lines at the top.
    4. Long tap on attached sidebar -> context menu always out of the screen a little.
    5. Move your cursor under ‘Recently closed’ section in the ‘Tab menu’ -> black arrow disappears.
    6. Open private window, close regular window, try to open regular window again from the context menu of the Windows taskbar (right-click Opera icon on the taskbar -> New window), nothing will happen.

    i5-4300U, Windows 10 x64, 150% system scale.

    Just another thought about kinetic settings for mouse wheel scrolling back and forth on the tab bar for 100-200+ tabs.

    I was thinking settings for things like acceleration and deceleration curves like the ‘smoothscroll’ extension. (look it up on chrome webstore ‘Smoothscroll’).

    I like to tune the settings with this extension so I get the right feel for page scroll from the very slow to the very fast movements up and down a page. Same could be applied to the tab bar scrolling back and forth.

    And to turn it off if some users prefer it that way. Settings to suit all tastes.

    Jesus Christ Almighty, will it possible to shuffle extensions easily someday? Desirable not after my death. Only holy wine doesn’t let me to lose faith. Please, hear my prayers. Thank YOU.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Do you read the blog page sometimes? https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/. It’s already there in the developer version.

        Posted after or in time my posting. Jesus heard me in a flash. I am his favorite)

    Suggestion for snapshot : I think we miss a “full page” button. The selection is fine to take a piece of page which needs scrolling (very nice, indeed, well done), but if I want the full page (scrolling included) it could be annoying
